Storyline

Czech Republic is worldwide known for its long history, artistic and cultural life.... and its beer. Anyway, since foreign multinational companies started to acquire the main Czech breweries, the traditional way of producing beer and the national pride that the beer represents for the Czech people are in ultimate danger. But not everybody is ready to succumb without a fight.... In a comedic tone, Czech Beer War tells the story of the heroes that in a Don Quixote way stand up to battle and resist against the giants of globalization, an effect that at first glance seems unstoppable. For such a quest they posses the weapons they are sure are infallible: their believes and lots of good traditional Czech beer.

Jan Latal has been involved in audiovisual storytelling since 2001. He graduated from Interactive Media / Creative Writing at the Academy of Literature in 2005. Thanks to the multitude of his studies, he worked as a DoP, editor and director. He was supervising the first 3D documentary ever produced in CZ, Poselstvi z Tucina, during his first year at FAMU. His film Paroubkové was screened at the main competition at Jihlava IDFF 2011. His films has been screened and awarded at numerous festivals (best director for Jeden den v životě at FAMUfest, best film for Upřímně). Jan Latal co-founded studio Družina, a creative agency focused on publicly beneficial campaigns. His feature debut Czech Beer War got released and screened in Czech cinemas recently.
