director: Juliana Moska
original title: ANIMOT
country: Czech Republic
year: 2021
running time: 18 min.


The experimental documentary filmed at rescue centres in Prague and Vlašim refuses the anthropocentric perspective and views the world through the eyes of wounded animals. The term Animot was taken over from Jacque Derrida. While the French philosopher and deconstructivist uses the term to refer to everything animalistic and non-human, the film, on the other hand, uses intimate details to point out the proximity between human beings and animals. They are connected by their vulnerability, helplessness and mortality.


Juliana Moska (1997) is an actress and student of the Department of Documentary Film at the Film and TV School of the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague. Her short film The Mirror (2019) got the award of honour in the Best First Year Film Category at Famufest.
