In 1968 Czechoslovakia was occupied by 5 countries. 50 years later, directors from each of these occupying countries are shooting a five-episode film about the invasion. They are interested in exploring how “an average person” acts in “big history”: what role does individual responsibility and personal integrity play in critical situations when individuals must choose between saving their life or obeying the rules? For the “friendly" forces of the Warsaw Pact countries the occupation of Czechoslovakia was a very different experience from that of the Czech and Slovak people. What did the soldiers who were sent to “make order” in a foreign country think and feel? Occupation from the occupier’s perspective.
