Tradition

The town of Kyjov has two traditions: folk culture and methamphetamine. Dressing up in folk costumes is one of the things that the region of Moravian Slovakia is known for, but it is a façade funded from the municipal budget.

Kov o kov

2017 | Filmová báseň @en

Mum is. Mum lives. There’s a scar on her chest, but don’t pay any notice. There’s a heart inside that is beating. Metal against metal. A mechanical aortic valve to replace the one that was all used up. The film poem.

The Still Life of Vera

2015

A box of 254 postcards at 1 CZK apiece. Dozens of senders but only one addressee. A portrait of the unknown recipient culled from 50 years of birthday and Christmas greetings. An attempt to put something static into motion, to make something flat deeper, to put life into something dead.

Moratorium Vondrejs

2014

I’ve once bumped up to, in some village garden, an elderly man who drilled holes into snail shells. He was one of the co-founders of genetic engeneering in the Czech Republic. The man dedicated all of his life to improvement of the natural world so that it suits more and more to the needs of »

Every palsy has its silver lining

2014

Pictures from memory of a person suffering from cerebral palsy. He got ill with the Polio virus in the early 60′s. Why and how did experts research the technique of his falls?

A portrait of a childless forty-year-old as she re-evaluates her life to date. Not even the disillusionment from romantic ideals is capable of dimming her desire for a child. The film is accompanied by the cynical yet pragmatic commentary of a woman who has given up on finding a life partner in favour of a »

LOVE DIALOGUES PART. 3

2014

A miniature about the heterosexual relationship of domestic cats in three acts: the gentle foreplay in the form of mutual licking is replaced by passionate coupling, followed yet again by sweet displays of affection. Black and white film was used during the shoot, as well as a muted soundtrack and close-up details of the eyes »

MUM AND EMMA. EMMA AND MUM

2014

Stockholm – Prague. Mother and daughter trying to shorten the distance between them through video calls. But the geographical distance isn’t the only thing they have to overcome. The dissolution of a home and a formation of another in three shots.

TO RULE, TO WORK, TO EARN, TO PRAY, TO COLLAPSE

2013 | Bakalářský film @en

According to the leading Czech Egyptologist, professor Miroslav Barta, more and more signs of the impending collapse of our society are coming. On the background of his reflections we watch documentary short stories that ask whether these signs are so ubiquitous that they pervade the society even in the insignificant moments of everyday life. http://dafilms.com/download/key/s3ef9UKCJF

Hotel Atol****
