Children of the Full Moon
They are driven by forces we are unable to control. No one knows what they actually experience or why they are so much affected by the Moon. They live among us, entrenched in their everyday hell on earth – families and children with severe autism. This form of autism is called low-functional. It is one of the most demanding and worst manageable health impairments. Those who suffer from the disorder have great difficulties to become part of our society.

Don't give up: Climatic prisoners
In order to draw attention to the damage done to the environment, activists won't hesitate to hang a banner on the smokestack of a power plant, climb up a mining tower or protest at the bottom of a coal mine. Civil protests have always been a part of democracy and environmental protection. In recent years, however, there have been cases where activists are threatened with prosecution for non-violent protests. Does climate change also come with a “change in climate” in our society? Will people who peacefully protest against environmental damage end up in prison?

The Power of Lies
This documentary analyses the quality of infowar and the effects of disinformation in the Czech Republic. It tries to find out who is behind false reports that spread mainly through social networks and so called conspiracy webs. The film also tries to answer the question whether these false reports, stories and emotions are spread as part of Russian propaganda and whether those Czechs who are for various reasons unhappy with the direction their country chose after 1989 are in on the scheme.

Love with the Scent of Fir
This documentary film about people who "no longer have to pretend that they don't exist" was made as a gift from Czech Television for the Jedlička Institute for the Disabled to mark the institute's 100th anniversary. Over the course of just under an hour, we see and experience the everyday joyful, comical, embarrassing, and extraordinary situations of several people who have one thing in common: the institute that everybody calls by its nickname "Jedle" ("fir"). What kind of institute is it? How has it changed over the past 100 years? What has it given to and gained from the people who have passed through it? The various micro-stories culminate in a wedding and birth. Most of the protagonists are in wheelchairs, but that doesn't keep them from cutting loose.

A film as a living anthology of jokes about foreigners and minorities, and their analysis from a historical, social, and political point of view. Czechs' views of other nations, ethnic groups, and minorities through contemporary jokes. A whirlwind of beer-hall jokes, put under the microscope by academics in white suits.
