Through This Night

Through This Night

(Durch diese Nacht sehe ich keinen einzigen Stern)
Dagmar Knöpfel / NĚM, 2005
German version / Czech subtitles, 112 min

The documentary is an intimate portrait of Božena Němcová. It is not a celebrative biopic nor a history of the Czech national uprising. It offers a new and innovative approach to the personality of Božena Němcová comparing her to such important artists as Virginia Woolf. Through This Night portrays of a woman who fought for the right to be herself against the social conventions, human pettiness, and sometimes even against herself.
