Gottland, a documentary film inspired by a book uncovering various aspects of Czech culture and modern history, received a pre-premiere at a railway freight yard in Prague’s Žižkov district on Monday night. The film was shot by five documentary makers, several of whom were students when work on it began. The producers plan to only screen it at unusual venues and it will not get a cinema release. The book Gottland by Polish journalist Mariusz Szczygiel came out in 2007 and was recently published in an English translation.
