Ester Krumbachová – an artist, screenplay writer, director; one of the boldest personalities of the Czech New Wave. She worked in theatre, she was a writer and an illustrator. She co-created films such as The Party and the Guests, Daisies, All My Good Countrymen, Fruit of Paradise, Valerie and Her Week of Wonders, The Very Late Afternoon of Faun, Marian, and many others. In the 1960s, she was a ‘pivot’ of the art scene in Prague, attracting artists who were on the threshold of their career, just setting out to find their own form of selfrealization. Those who underwent her tutelage remember her forever. Director Věra Chytilová talks to those who knew Ester Krumbachová, who worked with her, befriended her, loved her. She sets off on a search that is to end by answering the question: Who was Ester?
