„Věra 68“

One hundred and forty medals, including seven gold and four silver Olympic, makes gymnast Věra Čáslavská (1942-2016) one of the most successful Czechoslovak sportswoman of all time. Hundreds of opponents were trying to defeat, or at least approach her. After breathtaking victory at the Olympic Games in Mexico in 1968 she was declared to be the best sportswoman in the World. She has become the second most popular woman of the planet after Jacqueline Kennedy and the whole world sat at her feet. In the same year she signed the Two Thousand Words manifesto and never withdrew her signature. The peak of her career was replaced by a social downfall. Twenty years later she rises to the top of her career once again when she gets chosen as adviser to President Vaclav Havel. The feature-length documentary about the fate of Věra Čáslavská who in August this year succumbed to cancer is also a mirror of Czechoslovak history and a unique phenomenon in the history of the Czech nation.
