New Hyperion, or Liberty, Equality, Brotherhood

After the collapse of the communist regime, Czechoslavakia holds its first democratic elections since 1945. In this period of heightened political activity and social upheaval, the Pope pays a visit, Václav Havel is elected president, and both Mikhail Gorbachev and Alexander Dubček depart. Activists, artists, politicians, spies, and dissidents discuss the unfolding events in a mosaic of points of view, a “real and incomplete story.”
