The Fact of LIfe
Director MarieAnna Dvorak

"There is history in all men's lives," stated William Shakespeare. George Bernard Shaw expressed the same idea: "The man who write about himself and his own time is the only man who writes about all people and all time." The logic of their philosophy has cut through my thoughts when the Ukraine issue occurred. It was something I had experienced more than four decades ago, and which brought me to the realization that history is really repeating itself. And it must, for most of the great acts were done by people due to the contradiction in ideologies or obsession for power and wealth. This is not just a matter of yesterday and today, but also tomorrow.

Much has been said about WWII, but the Cold War era behind the Iron Curtain seems to be forgotten. It was the time when the wounds of Nazism were quickly replaced with psychological torture and tyranny of Stalinism. After all, both of the regimes promoted totalitarianism and utilized mass violence. It was the time when people were left to live their lives in quite desperation in their fatherland where defense or fair trial were practically non-existent, and where even a suspicion for anti-state action was reason for imprisonment in hard-labor prison. It is estimated that some 1.5 to 2 million people had been punished in one way or another for political crimes in a country of 15 million population. Many of the imprisoned did not survive the psychological and physical torture. Some were executed, others preferred to commit suicide. But millions of men and women were subjected to psychological torture that had never ceased as there was no defense. This method of torture creates unbearable fear and often results in long-term psychological effects.

One such life has served as a plot to a book written during that time by a noted writer. Although I price his work highly, I found it hard to accept his casual style in such serious matter. When I finally did, a U.S. film adaptation of the book was released. Only the dangling plot lines have remained. Their characters lived free lives behind the Iron Curtain upon their arrival from a western country. In reality, these people lived under a strict secret police surveillance due to the suspicion of espionage, which was the highest degree of criminal offense. But the filmmakers were more interested in the erotic games and they made it by humiliating the political victims and twisted history facts. Some call the movie a zombie-like. Since then, the novel writer no longer allows any adaptation of his work. But those, who haven't experienced the painful facts of life, have appreciated the erotic games. The film has received 7 wins and 13 nominations. Two Academy Awards nominations for Best Writing and Best Cinematography. Unbelievable.

As for me, I stand behind the statement of Sigmund Freud who was once a native of the country I am speaking of: "Only a good-for-nothing is not interested in his past." History teaches us what man has done and thus what man is. Therefore I find it necessary to return to the historical facts in this time of the crucial political crisis in a motion picture that speaks the truth. It is the life of the same person the novel was based on, someone very dear to me. The production will be held in a major European studio and needs an executive producer.

Everybody dreams of traveling and seeing the world, but most people do not follow through with that dream. They let it remain as a dream and continue on with their “busy” life.

Just because you can't see the pain, doesn't mean it doesn't exist.
