Image

Amateur footage. Opening shot, LS from high angle to green valley below, many Czech flags, on tall flagpoles waving in the valley below. People gathered in the valley, milling about. MCU, women, children and a nurse, with their backs to the camera standing outside of what appears to be a rescue or ambulance vehicle, the vehicle is bright red with a blue stripe, lettering on the truck is illegible due to poor image quality. MCU, a man and two women seated on a horse drawn carriage, they are all wearing shawls, their heads are covered and they look away from the camera. VS, men, women and children milling around in the field. CU, 3 women wearing kerchiefs, they smile awkwardly for the camera. LS, crowd of people in the valley. MS, young woman and older woman putting a cross in the ground (grave marker). Once the marker is placed, the older woman poses next to it. There is writing on the cross, but it is illegible due to the poor image quality.
