Helena Třeštíková (b. 1949, Prague) has been one of the most prominent and most productive Czech documentarists since the 1980s. While at FAMU, where she graduated in 1975, she began applying the long-term observation technique that has become her trademark. Her impressive oeuvre, containing a series of feature-length docs and TV series (“Marriage Stories,” René, Katka, Forte and Piano, “Man and Time,” “Memory of the 20th Century”), meticulously creates a comprehensive image of the past century and the present day.
