Gottland is a cross-genre film based on selected parts of the international bestseller Gottland (European book of the year 2009) by Mariusz Szczygiel. 7 documentarists – students of Prague famous film school FAMU – observe the Czech history from the losers’ point of view and examine the neuralgic points of Czech and European history and so called “heroes” of the Czech nation. The name Gottland refers to a famous Czech singer Karel Gott, one of the most popular pop-music singers in the central Europe. Karel Gott himself became a symbol for the succesful, and hardworking citizen of the Czech lands, who has stayed perfectly neutral for last 60 years. He is the only real hero for the Czech nation, sometimes even reaching up to the god status.
