In this episode of Czech TV series Czech Journal, Filip Remunda focuses on the Chinese president’s visit in the Czech Republic last year. The director launches into confrontational discussions with the citizens of a country that violates human rights and where people are imprisoned for their opinions, but whose population proudly voices their allegiance to their prospering country. Footage of the protests held by the Czech public on one hand, and Chinese greeting the president with joy on the other, are interspersed with the saying of Laozi and footage of Leonid Brezhnev’s visit to Prague in 1978. The film thus opens the question as to with whom the Czech president is fostering warm international relations.
