JAN BORNA ANEB DOKRESLENÍ JANKA

MOVIE

Director Jan Borna was one of the most distinguished figures of contemporary Czech theatre. A major part in his life was played by the multiple sclerosis that he battled for twenty-five years. Even with his illness, however, he managed to write poetry, direct, teach and above all enchant.
The film “Jan Borna, or a Picture of Janek” is a well-arranged look, in the form of chapters, at Jan Borna’s full and creative life. In addition to interviews with people such as Arnošt Goldflam, Jan Vondráček, Miroslav Hanuš and many others, the film contains unique archive material, recordings of productions and animation accompanying readings from Jan Borna’s poetry collections.
