To Make a Comedy is No Fun

The documentary To Make a Comedy is No Fun will be screened at the 10th Iran International Documentary Film Festival, Cinema Verite.
To Make a Comedy is No Fun
 
In 1968, Czechoslovakian director Jiří Menzel wins the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film with CLOSELY WATCHED TRAINS – his first feature film ever. Only one year later his next film LARKS ON A STRING is banned by the government. But Menzel decides to stay in socialist Czechoslovakia and continues working as director and actor for theatre and film. His comedies and costume dramas are a commercial success, gently testing the boundaries of authorities with his well hidden political messages. Today, filmmakers like Miloš Forman, Ken Loach, Emir Kusturica or István Szabó are amongst his admirers and friends. JIRÍ MENZEL – TO MAKE A COMEDY IS NO FUN tells the story of this exceptional filmmaker for the first time.
The 10th Cinema Verite will be held December 4-11, 2016, in Tehran.
