Blackandwhite uses a local urban legend of a nurse from the WWII to examine our perception of the female role in war time, heroism and revenge on the background of Czech-German relations. We recreate the story based on several sources and word of mouth. The words of people are in dialogue with visual materials from film scenes, archives, experimental animation and footage of their daily life. Combining all these elements, the film constructs a visualisation of this woman and her story based on the collective imagination of people living in Třeboň in the present day.
