    For IDFA’s 31st edition, the festival’s star guest will be director Helena Třeštíková. The 69-year-old award-winning filmmaker has created a prodigious output of close to 50 documentaries in her native Czech Republic, resulting in a deeply personal take on the last half-century of her country’s history.

In her films, viewers are invited to observe people as they live out the stories of their lives.
