Censorship in Czech cinematographic import during the 1960s -70s: translation aspects
Mináriková, Vendula ; Mračková Vavroušová, Petra (advisor) ; Klimeš, Ivan (referee)
This theoretical and empirical interdisciplinary thesis examines censorship in cinematographic import to Czechoslovakia during the 1960s and 70s. Specifically we focus on English-spoken movies dubbed into Czech. The thesis summarizes existing theoretical research on the present topic and complements it with data acquired through interviews with contemporary witnesses. This information is then used for an analysis of two movies released to cinemas in Czechoslovakia during the researched period - The Entertainer (in Czech Komik, 1960) and Twelve Angry Men (in Czech Dvanáct rozhněvaných mužů, 1957). The thesis ends with a comparison of these two dubbings in their respective context and of the 1960s and 1970s from the perspective of the Czechoslovak dubbing. Finally, it offers several topics for further research.
Soviet Film Comedy of the Late 60's and the 70's
Něudačina, Natalija ; Bláhová, Jindřiška (advisor) ; Klimeš, Ivan (referee)
The subject of this thesis is a genre analysis of Soviet film comedies of the late 60s and the 70s that is based on the reception and production history data. The aim of this research is to grasp this type of comedy as a specific political and socially-cultural phenomenon of the Eastern bloc and its relation to Soviet popular culture. A methodology of the genre analysis will derive from Rick Altman's semantic-syntactic approach, which will allow us to describe the chosen genre group as a complex genre trend set in the unique social, cultural, economic and in this particular case also ideological context, to follow the development and fluidity of the genre trend, as well as to find and to compare mutual attributes of the chosen films. The analysis will not be based solely on the group of the most watched films, but also on the production data focusing mostly on the films' budget, as well as dramaturgic supervision and censorship. Another part of the diploma thesis will be based on the gathered reception data such as contemporary media response and viewer ratings, focusing on the important role that Soviet film comedies played in the period and partially continue to play in the present-day Russian popular culture. Fusion of all analytic parts shall bring us to the basic definition of the Soviet film...

Arsenjev, Mikoláš ; Szczepanik, Petr (advisor) ; Klimeš, Ivan (referee)
This bachelor thesis deals with the development and soft pre-production process of an yet unrealized Czech feature-film called Krajina ve stínu, which has been in the state of preparation since 2012. The authors of the project are screenwriter Ivan Arsenjev, director Bohdan Sláma and producer Martin Růžička, the story of the film tells about the historic phase of post-war expulsion of Germans from Czech lands in 1945. The thesis describes collaboration between the screenwriter, director and producer and the development of their creative vision. It also portrays the gradual involvement of other players, the endeavor of financing the project and the way these external conditions had influence on the creative vision. Furthermore, on the example of the unexperienced producer Růžička, who entered the project also as a financier, are shown the necessary skills for producing films in the Czech production culture. The thesis significantly draws upon the semi-structured interviews with the players and includes many excerpts from these.
From Scribe to Ministerial Counsellor: The Involvement of Jiří Mařánek in the Cinematography of the Forties and Fifties
Kupková, Marika ; Klimeš, Ivan (advisor) ; Skopal, P. (referee) ; Heczková, Libuše (referee)
1 Abstract The thesis focuses on the involvement of Jiří Mařánek in the management of the Film Department of the Ministry of Information during the years 1945 - 1948. His ministe- rial engagement is related to the contemporary strengthening of the importance of literary preparation of the film and to the associated state dramaturgical supervision. Jiří Mařánek belongs to the circle of writers connected on one hand through their affiliation with the interwar avant-garde movements, on the other hand by their postwar involve- ment in the power apparatus that ended by the political and economic changes in the late forties and fifties. His professional fate speaks about the changes of cultural policy of the state, about the institutional development of the cinema and about the relations between literary and cinematic arts. It is a testimonial of what a successful professional career meant for a man of letters and what relationship it had to the cinema. We follow therefore a relatively brief but breakthrough episode of a writer and retired officer in the position of the Ministerial Counsellor, and we try to place its course and causes into a complex network of historical and social contexts and personal motivation. Focusing on this personality unburdened neither by a historical uniqueness, fundamental role of...

Television drama in Czechoslovak specialized discourse of the 1950s and 1960s
Jiřiště, Jakub ; Svatoňová, Kateřina (advisor) ; Klimeš, Ivan (referee)
Thesis deals with basic tendencies and preconditions of the aesthetic development of Czechoslovak television drama of the 50s and 60s through its specialist reflection. The method of a discourse analysis which is applied to the area of aesthetics and inspired by the concepts of Michel Foucault and Achim Landwehr maps locally- and time-based field of the discourse about television drama and penetrates surface relations between subdiscourses (television criticism, television theory and influences of institutions) with the aim to capture the formative order of the discourse. A basic axis of the analysis is the evolution of the concept of television specifity which will be tracked through the crucial discussions of the period. They reflects a gradual revision of initial assumptions about the formal emancipation and the legitimacy of art of television. The next step of the analysis is the mutual comparison of solutions at which these discussions arrived via various aspects and methods. This way a second goal of the discourse analysis will be fulfilled - to trace the essential unity of the discourse which is represented by the complex of jointly asserted requirements about the ideal form of the television drama. The complex is possible to consider as an implicit poetics of Czechoslovak television drama...
Film and regime. Official and unofficial reflection of normalization film-making
Shehatová, Amira ; Klimeš, Ivan (advisor) ; Přádná, Stanislava (referee)
In my bachelor's thesis I deal with the reflection of selected normalization films of Věra Chytilová and Jiří Menzel in official as well as unofficial press. I am not concerned with the films on their own but rather with the reactions in newspapers, samizdat and exile periodicals. First I outline the contemporary historical and social context. Further I pay attention how did the changed political arrangement influenced the official culture and media. Then I continue with alternative culture description which includes printing the samizdat periodicals. To complete the picture I include the texts from exile periodicals as well. Next two chapters of my thesis examine the particular texts in detail. I was mainly interested in how the critics percieve the same films from thier different ideological, social and geographical position. What they can agree on and when on the contrary their views are completely different. Key words: film, normalization, samizdat, exile, Věra Chytilová, Jiří Menzel

Patterns of Czech Film-dramturgical Poetics
Csicsely, Lukáš ; Svatoňová, Kateřina (advisor) ; Klimeš, Ivan (referee)
This bachelor thesis focuses on Czech academic film dramaturgy. Dramaturgy in this sense refers to the activity of the dramaturge in the creation of a film work of art. His performance is theoretically grounded upon a long tradition beginning with Aristotle's Poetics, generally called poetics, and this thesis consists of a comparison of such film poetics published at FAMU, within the department of scriptwriting and dramaturgy, examined through the perspective of Prague structuralism, and with the mentioned traditions on background. No other theoretical work has dealt with this material so far, so my aim is to map the basic problems of this closed field, with an emphasis on how the tradition is adapted to the specific requirements of film.
