The documentary film is a unique documentary study of phenomenon of sword dances, tradition preserved up to now across European countries. The film arises from the work of famous Moravian ethnologist Frantisek Pospнsil. The authors gained the copies contained an unpublished editing of sword dances in Europe shot apparently at a time from 1920 to 1926 by Frantisek Pospнsil. The archive shots from the twenties confronted with contemporary reality form the first backbone of the documentary film.
