With USA credits like TREME & THE WIRE, it was logical for HBO Europe to turn to Oscar-nominated Polish director Agnieszka Holland to create this tense mini-series about the Soviet crackdown on Czechoslovakia in 1968. Now being released in the USA as a feature film, Burning Bush focuses on the complex consequences after a student burns himself to death as an act of protest. (JLH: 4/5)

Q: Does Burning Bush pass the Bechdel Test? DigitalStampA


The main character, “Dagmar Burešová,” is based on a real woman who represented the family of Jan Palach in a libel suit after he killed himself.

In her professional role, Burešová interacts with Jan Palach’s mother, a key [female] witness for the defense, and the [female] judge.

At home, however, Burešová is also the mother of two young daughters!
