A bust of Stalin is cut open on an operating table, leading to an elaborate animated depiction of Czech history from 1948 (the Communist takeover) to 1989 (the Velvet Revolution). Some knowledge of the subject is essential in order to understand the film, which is entirely visual.

WHY IT'S HERE: Jan Svankmajer's 'The Death of Stalinism in Bohemia' is the director's most overtly political film, depicting Czech history from the Communist takeover in 1948 to the Velvet Revolution in 1989.
