Jan Nemec, one of the leading filmmakers of the Czech New Wave of the 1960s, looks back at a crucial moment in his history as well as that of his country in this historical drama. In August 1968, the Soviet Union rolled into Czechoslovakia with tanks, determined to halt the reform movement that had begun months before in what became known as "Prague Spring." As the Czechs mounted a short-lived offense against the Soviet Forces, Nemec captured as much of the battle on film as he could, and then he made a dangerous journey into Austria to smuggle the footage to the west, accompanied by Enrico, an Italian journalist, and Jana, Nemec's girlfriend and an actress often described as the sexiest woman in Czechoslovakia. In Holka Harrari Dino (aka The Ferrari Dino Girl), Nemec intercuts his footage of the 1968 Soviet Invasion with staged re-enactments of his run to Austria as he revisits the tragedy of the Soviet occupation, the excitement of his escape, and his deep love for Jana. The Ferrari Dino Girl was an official selection at the 2009 Rotterdam International Film Festival.
