Czech and Slovak overlapping in the documentary film after 1993
Languages of publication
The paper focuses on the delineation of national themes as they began to occasionally crop up in Slovak documentary film after the break-up of the Czechoslovak Federative Republic. In its introductory part, it examines the phenomenon of Czech and Slovak infiltrations in feature and documentary films from the point of view of the natural historical development of common Czechoslovak cinematography. In the second part, based on the factual examples of the documentary film production between 1992 and 1999, the paper highlights thematic and content trends, which reflected the quest for independence of both the nations and their cinematography. In the third, final part, it is concluded that after the year 2000, there has been a decline of the interest of Slovak film professionals in the theme of the split of Czechoslovakia into two independent states. In the process of contemplating over national aspects, the increasingly favoured portrayal is that of a multi-ethnic community composed of a variety of identities, which subsequently co-establish common entity, i.e. the nation.
