The new film You Will Never See It All puts the spotlight on Ján Mančuška, a conceptual artist who is not so well-known in his native Czechia despite having works in the collections of Paris’s Pompidou Centre and MOMA in New York. The film picked up the Best Debut prize in the main competition at the Ji.hlava documentary festival, which is where I spoke to director Štěpán Pech.

“The film is about Ján Mančuška, who was an artist, and I was an assistant to him. When he passed away I somehow couldn’t cope with the death and after a couple of years I just decided that I wanted to meet him more – to spend some time with him and maybe get along with his death, through the process of the film.”
