An unprecedented documentary profile of one marriage, Helena Třeštíková’s A Marriage Story follows the Strnadovi family through thirty five years. Incorporating footage from earlier tv films going back to 1980, Třeštíková provides an incredibly intimate portrait of furniture shop owners, Ivana and Vaclav Strnadovi from their romantic union to raising a family, periods of harmony and discord and the little details of everyday life that are inaccessible to more conventional filmmakers. Screening with her short film, Miracle, following a young pregnant woman as she becomes a mother.
