Karel Tuma

YOUNG ALTERNATIVE – AFTER 8 YEARS OF FREEDOM (Czechoslovakia, 1997)

Karel Tůma observes that a decade after the fall of communism in Czechoslovakia, there are few results to be seen from the plans for a new, just society. After several euphoric years self-interest, materialism and intolerance dominate the picture. The desire to become a member of the EU overshadows questions like social equality, preserving national culture and concern for the environment. Only leftist youth seem to still get worked up about the consequences of globalisation and the continually growing gap between the rich and poor. They are the ones who will have to get politicians and society to change course on these issues, Tůma suggests. In the streets of Prague he documents their struggle, which is accompanied by numerous clashes with the police.
