We have moved into an apartment in Dejvice quarter with a balcony overlooking the inner courtyard. I look at it every day and it makes me feel anxious.

Currently Adverse Weather

2012 | Hraná etuda v ateliéru @en

The nearly invisible encounter of two people takes place on a blurred screen, but with audible sounds: A fog that you couldn’t cut even with a knife. Two people meet. Each can see only what he can touch or hear. Better to record it all, in case somebody doesn’t remember. In the end, none of »

In the Basque region of Navarra, the director – a stranger – stops passers by next to pieces of political graffiti, letting them explain what they mean and why they were painted.

2008 | Můj pohled na skutečnost, na které mi záleží @en

Když vás bolí hlava, vezmete si aspirin! Máte-li náhodou kocovinu, velmi rychle Vám od ní pomůže ibalgin. A pokud musíte do práce s chřipkou, na dosah je modafen… Dokumentární film o generaci, která je ovládána medicínským průmyslem a jeho reklamními slogany natolik, že bezmyšlenkovitě polyká různobarevné pilulky proti všemu…

Today in place of the factory there remains an industrial wilderness, in which the poorest inhabitants from the nearby ghettoes collect copper and iron.
