screening and discussion
Jan Regal, who came from a village near Zlín, was doing an advertising photographs for Agrokombinát Slušovice in the 80's. Slušovice was then perceived as a unique phenomenon. People went on a trip there to see animals, the employees could go shopping at the Quatro shops, which were their own Slušovice Tuzex. They also saved money in their own bank and a few miles from the village to Zlín there was a cooperative built highway. Slušovice wanted to start tourism in Vietnam and set up its own travel agency. As a part of this project, photographer Jan Regal came to Vietnam as well. He captured pictures of the life around Saigon, the abandoned French hotels and specific atmosphere of the time.
