One of the most renowned long-term documentaries, Marcela received an unprecedented response when shown on Czech Television in January and February 2006, especially the fifth story, where the main character’s daughter tragically dies at the end of the film shoot.
Viewers revolted against this unfortunate fate and actively entered the story. They started to send money to the desperate mother, Marcela, calling her and writing to her, helping her. That adds up a big challenge for any director. The documentary filmmaker Helena Třeštíková is now approaching Marcela in a newly made documentary.
