A new documentary looking at many aspects of the Covid period in Czechia hits cinemas this Thursday, the third anniversary of the country’s first coronavirus lockdown. Entitled Velké nic, or The Great Nothing, the thought-provoking black and white film is directed by Vít Klusák and Marika Pecháčková.

The Great Nothing provides a fascinating, sometimes poetic look at life in Czechia during the Covid period.

It follows a number of characters, including an opera singer forced to work in a supermarket and a campaigner against government measures since convicted of spreading disinformation.
