16-08-2013

Family and friends on Friday paid their last respects to filmmaker Jiří Krejčík who passed away last week at the age of 95. The funeral took place in Prague’s St Vojtěch church, the same where Jiří Krejčík was baptized 95 years ago. Mr Krejčík’s best known films include the 1960 WWII drama Higher Principle, the biographical film about the singer Ema Destinová entitled The Divine Ema, and others.
