Tabor: A Little Czech Town on the American Prairie
In her directorial debut, Aesli Grandi invites you to get to know the people of her small hometown of Tabor, feel the sprit of the community that envelopes their daily lives, and see how the celebration of their past is allowing for a brighter future. It's more than a documentary of a single town; it's a picture of one colorful piece of the fabric that is America.
Grandi is a Tabor native and was crowned the Czech Days Queen in 1997. She now works for a production company in California and brought a film crew to Czech Days in 2007 to document the event.
