Transformations of my Friend Eva ( Proměny přítelkyně Evy )
Drahomíra Vihanová
1990 - Tchécoslovaquie - Couleur et Noir & Blanc - 21'

An unconventional portrait of the famous jazz singer, Eva Olmerová, shot over several months. Sometimes ready to collaborate with the filmmaker, sometimes behaving like an aggressive, ageing and deeply depressed artist, the restless Eva Olmerová talks about her past. This film expresses the very essence of jazz, passing from truculence to anxiety, from melodrama to humility and passion.
