Members of the Brno alternative rock legend Dunaj (Danube) meet after several years, determined to forget their grievances and disagreements of the past to perform a concert in the Romanian city of Banat, where they still have a strong fan base. On the way there, they take a boat down the Danube River, whose waves and mysterious nature evokes memories of the past among the band members and reflections on their careers, helped out by a meeting with former member Iva Bittová. The poetically infused film reveals the backstage of the band and, accompanied by the captivating tones of Dunaj’s songs, paints a complex portrait of the legendary music group.

The strength of the river, music and meeting with another icon of DUNAJ, Iva Bittova, summons the rebirth of the band. The shamanic journey down the Danube guides Kolšovský to the other shore and deflects him eternally in an enclosing circle to a new story.

The documentary is ready and it’s currently in the distribution. More information on www.facebook.com/filmdunaj
