Documentary filmmaker Jan Šikl has spent many years seeking out and collecting private film archives. Faded footage of family lives, celluloid echoes of celebrations and everyday moments. Through his work, Šikl came across several hours of footage showing the Warsaw Pact invasion of Czechoslovakia. These unique images long remained unseen. Reconstruction of Occupation is a cinematic adventure of a truly archeological nature in which anonymous faces are transformed into living witnesses of the days that sent Czechoslovakia into two more decades of bondage.
Reconstruction of Occupation premiered at the latest Karlovy Vary International Film Festival.
Film director, producer, Jan Šikl was born in 1957, in Prague. He graduated from FAMU in 1982. In 1991 he founded his own production company, Pragafilm.
