A crime series, a family drama, a dream. The miniseries Shadow of the Ferns brings suspense, mystery and humour - even though the story takes place in a period which was far from funny. Filip, a young cop, wakes up in early 80’s in a town in the North of Czechoslovakia. Why is he here? A crime miniseries inspired by the BBC show Life on Mars.
Screening followed by a case study with Ondrej Stindl (creator, screenwriter), Marek Najbrt (creator, screenwriter), Vratislav Slajer (producer, Bionaut) and Michal Reitler (producer, Czech Television).
