Patrani po Ester
Ester Krumbachova - a costume designer, screenwriter, director; one of the boldest personalities of the Czech New Wave. She worked in theatre, she was a writer and an illustrator. She co-created films such as A Report on the Party and Guests (1966), Daisies (1966), All My Compatriots (1969), Pension pro svobodne pany (1968), Valerie and Her Week of Wonders (1970), Straw Hat (1972) and many others. In the 1960s, she was a 'pivot' of the art scene in Prague, attracting artists who were on the threshold of their career, just setting out to find their own form of self-realization. Those who underwent her tutelage remember her forever. Director Vera Chytilova talks to those who knew Ester Krumbachova, who worked with her, befriended her, loved her. She sets off on a search that is to end by answering the question: Who was Ester?
