From the makers of legendary Czech Dream, a hilarious documentary about a hoax hypermarket, comes Czech Peace, a new playfully explosive film about the mayor of a small Czech village and his attempts to foil the American plan to build its 762nd military base right on his doorstep. Despite the fact that 73% of Czechs are against the project, the government has continued with negotiations. The players in this story are everyone from villagers to George W. Bush, Condoleezza Rice, Barack Obama, peace activists and lobbyists representing American arms manufacturers. Czech Peace shows the workings of geopolitics and the way they affect the little people. The personal clashes with the impersonal, the specific with the universal, and an individual with the so-called great history.
