The comedy film Prezident Blaník, which features scenes involving real candidates from the recent Czech presidential elections, enters cinema distribution around the country on Thursday.
The makers of Prezident Blaník shot scenes at presidential debates and during celebrations on November 17, with the film’s fictional characters – headed by political fixer Tonda Blaník – interacting with candidates for the post of head of state and several other figures from Czech public life.
The movie is an offshoot of Kancelář Blaník, a regular political satire that found large audiences on the website Stream.cz.
