The success of European cinema at the Oscars

Czech street musician Markéta Irglová, 19, and her Irish partner Glen Hansard received an Oscar for the best film song, "Falling Slowly." They shot their film, "Once," with two hand-held cameras in only 17 days. Jana Kadlecová is delighted at the honour for an independent production: "Irglová is exactly what the Oscars, what Hollywood, the media and other distorted institutions have desperately sought. Her song is part of the American dream, with its clear message, its resolve and its belief that soul goes much farther than marketing."

20th century Slovakian popular history

The Slovakian National Museum has opened an extensive exhibit about the development of the country in the 20th century. Historian Dušan Kováč, who took part in conceiving the project, spoke with Jana Kadlecová: "In the 20th century, Slovakia lived through two totalitarian regimes, two world wars and the Cold War. Our history was, therefore, dramatic and controversial. But we did not only want to look at the political aspects of the history. … You see, certain objects of daily use survived all kinds of political changes untouched. A clothes iron did not change its appearance because of the outbreak of World War II. The biggest challenge was to present the most recent history. … If we had displayed computers, and our entire virtual world of the Internet, it would not have been especially attractive to the museumgoer. Unfortunately, recent history does not lend itself easily to museums."
