Univerzity a svoboda

Czech Republic, 2019, 69 min

The topic of higher education is getting more and more attention in the recent decades. Many young graduates have difficulties to find a job, but there are also pressures from market structures to form higher education in a different way, including the financing of schools. The pressures on reforms and introduction of school fees led to massive protests and debate on the quality of higher education and its role in society. The feature-length documentary explores idea of the university as a special entity within western civilization and culture, which has always been one of relevant frameworks for reproduction and spreading of common social values and knowledge in society.
