Documentarist Kristýna Bartošová wins Pavel Koutecký award

This year’s Pavel Koutecký Award for Best Czech Documentary has gone to Kristýna Bartošová for her film The Dangerous World of Rajko Doleček, a portrait of a 90-year old dietitian and a former TV star, who used to promote healthy lifestyle, but who is also a convinced nationalist and a close friend of Ratko Mladič. The award giving ceremony took place at Prague’s Archa theatre on Thursday evening. Pavel Koutecký was a filmmaker who died in 2006 at the age of 50, halfway through filming Citizen Havel, a portrait of the late president that subsequently became a great success.
