Czech Documentary Now: Is There Any Place For Me, Please? + Q&A

Shot over the course of nine years, this affecting documentary charts the life of acid attack survivor Martina Půtová, the challenges she faces and her activism in helping others.

 

Assaulted by her ex-boyfriend, Martina was lucky to survive but suffered major facial scarring and lost her sight as a result. This film charts her journey, showing the physical and emotional challenges she has met along the way but also capturing her strength of spirit as she rebuilds her life. This is not just a tale of personal courage but one of activism. Film director Jarmila Štuková follows Martina as she co-founds an organisation that supports other burn victims.

Dir. Jarmila Štuková, 2023, 77 min
