Josef Jařab looks back at his rich (not only) academic life with his very own brand of humour. Several significant figures complete the portrait of this persona’s extraordinary and peculiar destiny in the context of social changes taking place in our state; they reminisce about meeting him on the backdrop of significant events of our history. Thanks to a number of authentic archival footage and photographs, Josef Jařab is portrayed as an unmistakable motivator of the order of things, such as the student strike of 1989, the honorary doctorate for Václav Havel, meeting and performing with Allen Ginsberg, Evening Talks and many other cultural and socio-political events.
