An experience with the Canadian documentary director Paul Nadler
Friday, November 16, 5.00 pm, Na Prádle Theatre, Besední 3, Praha 1 Tickets: 50 Kč
Ten years ago, Paul Nadler had been an up and coming TV director, adreline sports enthusiast and a ladies man. Then he was found in a coma on a road in Egypt. He had no clothes nor IDs and his brain suffered a severe damage in a car crash. The documentary Paul Nadler shot about himself tells the story of his journey from a „motionless body“ to regained self-consciousness. He strived to continue the life as he had lived it before the car crash, but could not fully succeed. He finds it especially hard to start new relationships and understand the nuanced way of communication within these relationships. He wants to share his experience through a theatrical performace and discussion with a specialist and the audience, and to show how easily one's life can change. There is a limited capacity for the workshop, reservations can be made at firstname.lastname@example.org.
