  Triumph of Will
A biographical film about one of the greatest sporting heroes of the former Czechoslovakia was supposed to reach audiences last year. However, the premiere was postponed. The creators intended for the film to be screened in summer, in the cinema and during the Olympics. Nevertheless, the Olympics were put off too. The same applies for the Karlovy Vary festival, this year, as an exception, it takes place at the end of August. Shortly after the end of the Summer Olympic Games in Tokyo, it is to open with the world premiere of Zátopek by director David Ondříček.
