Jan Sikl’s Private Century Offered on www.DocAllianceFilms

Starting May 1, Doc Alliance Films will present Private Century, an 8-part series from one of the Czech Republic's prominent documentary filmmakers, JAN SIKL. The political and social upheavals of twentieth-century Czechoslovakia-war and occupation, the twin specters of Nazism and Communism, the Velvet Revolution-have never been more intimately rendered than in Private Century.

Composed entirely of family home movies, still photographs, letters, and diaries dating from the 1920s to the 1960s, the series explores how sweeping historical events transform the private lives of ordinary people, and how small domestic pleasures can crystallize into profound and enduring memories.

On May 1 & 2, you can stream two films from Private Century, Statuary of Granddad Vinda and King of Velichovky, FOR FREE!
