VELVET HANGOVER is a mosaic of candid interviews with the personalities that created the Czech New Wave. These remarkable filmmakers give their personal accounts of the struggles they faced as they tried to realize their visions in a constantly shifting political landscape. From the heady days of the mid sixties, through the repressive period of "Normalization", and into the present, ten years after the Velvet Revolution, these often startling accounts reveal a society in search of itself. At the heart of this struggle is the role moral integrity plays in determining the fate, not only of an artist, but perhaps a nation. Through the conversations in this film, viewers will gain a unique glimpse of the personalities behind the Czech New Wave, their legacy, and a vision of the present which will shock many of our perceptions of democracy and market reform.
