Jiri Dienstbier: Klaus's veto audiovisual law takes us back to medieval obscurantist


PRAGUE (MEDIAFAX) - Reluctance to promote cinema Republic takes on the cultural periphery, criticized on Tuesday in a statement one of the presidential candidates, Jiri Dienstbier (CSSD) Monday Vaclav Klaus's veto of the Audiovisual Law. According to him, it was to support kinematorafie more money from the state.

Vetoed the law assumes that the location of the State Fund for the Support and Development of Czech Cinematography Fund will create a new state of cinema, which will be financed from fees such as audiovisual media services.

Dienstbier think that state support for Czech film and culture is essential. On the contrary, President Klaus believes that the film industry is a standard industry business, not a public good that should be funded from public sources."Klaus served by just one more proof of his ekonomistního primitive thinking, for which each common area treated as a mere business. Course art as well as health and education are the nation's cultural property, which is much more than an ordinary commercial article and therefore deserve state support and public resources, "Dienstbier said.

According to the party's candidate for head of state pushes Klaus's veto Republic into the "obscurantist Middle Ages." However, agrees with the president that can not only support the film and not the other Art. His conclusion is, however, another wanted to increase state subsidies for the whole culture.

"The solution, in my opinion there is no reduction or abolishing these posts, but planting is to promote art as a whole.And while governments of developed European countries are aware of this and support this increase, Klaus's decision brings to a European cultural periphery, "said Dienstbier.

Klaus vetoed the bill on Monday. The rationale announced that he considered indefensible and unjustifiable in this way that the state intends to support entrepreneurs in the film industry, and not, for example Czech music, Czech art or architecture, Czech literature Czech Czech theater or sport. "I still do not see any reason why it would just film producers and other entrepreneurs in the cinema should be privileged over others comparable fields," he said.

"I think that the real problem of contemporary Czech cinema is not so much a lack of money - even for little money can make a very good film - but rather a lack of creative invention.I am convinced that the house would be taken over by law should seriously think again, "the president sent a message to Members to whom the law veto returned.
