Happiness in Twenty Years (90 mn (DVD : 130 mn))

This documentary about Czechoslovakia covers the period following World War II, beginning with the Russian occupation of Czechoslovakia in 1945, up to 1970. The famous "defenestration of Prague" is one of the many events discussed. The son of Masaryk, the founder of Czechoslovakia, was forced to make concessions transforming Czechoslovakia into a communist state and in retaliation, was thrown out of the window of a government building in Prague. The joy of liberation from the Germans was swiftly followed by the miseries of Soviet occupation and later Soviet domination. This documentary abounds in wry visual ironies, including its final shot of General Dubcek.

Narrated by Orson Welles

A Grin Without a Cat - 1
A Grin Without a Cat is a 1977 French essay film by Chris Marker.

A Grin Without a Cat - 1

It focuses on global political turmoil in the 1960s and '70s, particularly the rise of the New Left in France and the development of socialist movements in Latin America. Using the image of Lewis Carroll's Cheshire Cat, the film's title evokes a dissonance between the promise of a global socialist revolution (the grin) with its actual nonexistence.
