Moritz Pfeifer locates Maciej Drygas' documentary on the self-immolation of Ryszard Siwiec at the beginning of what can be called the canonization of secret heroes, the rediscovery of political martyrs to construct identity-building historical narratives.
Moritz Pfeifer saw this film by Jan Němec, which was banned in 1966 and only made available after the Velvet Revolution in Czechoslovakia.
