The Czech Hump

Audio Tracks 

Several years ago, dry rot destroyed the house on top of the Czech Republic's highest mountain. This gave rise to heated debates over the future plans for the location. Should it remain bare or should there be a new building? The result of these debates is surprising: Mrs. Skrbková, a former post office manager, decided to renew the tradition of Czech post office on Mt. Snezka. An experimental wooden house, a new post office by architects Rajniš and Hoffman was built in a matter of a few months. The house has its own ZIP code and a small halo, and can be adapted to changing weather conditions. The documentary records the construction carried out in extremely difficult conditions, its changes and the reactions of various people. Can this small house on four legs last till the next spring?
