Žhavý jícen [Hot Throat] [Hot Gorge] [The Fiery Gorge]

(Czechoslovakia 1939)

Žhavý jícen is an industrial short produced by Pražská železářská společnost a/k/a Prague Ironworks Company. Jiří Lehovec directed it, using footage from two other short films, Výroba oceli [Steel Production] and Poklady země [Treasures of the Earth] both directed by Karel Kohout the same year.

Needless to say, there is no plot; Žhavý jícen is a demonstration of steel production. According to the festival program, it was chosen for screening for technical reasons: its “perfect definition of light in an excellent print.” I’ll give it that.
