6839ORATORIO FOR PRAGUE*ORATORIO FOR PRAGUE*1990b & w29 minvhs (Written and directed by Jan Nemec) One of the most powerful documentaries ever made and a unique document of the Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia in 1968. The only filmed record of the invasion, the raw footage, when broadcast by television, was seen by more than 600 million people, and became the first information that the Soviet Army was not "invited" in. "The movie is shot in a style so poetic and gentle that the humanism and generosity of spirit, which seemed about to radiate from Alexander Dubcek and Czechoslovakia into the world, is intact."--N.Y.
