Milan Kundera – From The Joke to Insignificance

24th TDF: International Premiere

Milan Kundera is shrouded in mystery. He has not given an interview in 30 years and doesn’t appear in public, so we must learn about him from his work. His essays and philosophical discussions within his novels reveal a lot. What in Kundera's work got him the status of a legendary author?
