The current climate crisis is feeding into the massive spread of the bark beetle, and it is already clear that it cannot be stopped. Entire forests are being cut down all across the Czech Republic, leaving huge clearings in their wake, and after mammoth mining machines come in to do their dirty work, all that remains is desolate, suffocated land. “What we're demonstrating here is that it’s all just ‘a numbers game’ of who can mine the most cubic metres and what company can make the biggest fortune.” What problems will a new treeless landscape bring us? Barren landscapes are places we tend to look away from. This visually refined, black and white reportage film tries to convey the physical experience of mining and the clearings we create on a daily basis. It also poses an alarming question: “Do we really care about the forest?”

Umm al-Hiran
Under the surface of the modern state of Israel there lie stories that are largely hidden from European visitors. One of these is the fate of Palestinian Bedouins in underdeveloped areas living in unrecognized villages. A meditatively experimental film by an Israeli-Czech team captures the atmopshere of these places and the tragic fates of some of their inhabitants.

A film about the grave robber Ondřej Jajcaj. Ondřej Jajcaj has been collecting human teeth since age 14. His collection includes the teeth of composers Strauss and Brahms. His private collection of dentures is supposedly the largest on Earth. Most frequently, however, he sets out for graves in the Sudetenland. He says that people shouldn’t collection paintings by famous painters, but their heads, so that they can tell their love: “Look, those are paintings from this head.” And yet he is a beautiful person. Like all of you...   "The portrayed subject is the grave-robber Ondrej Jajcaj – the owner of the largest collection of dentures, which includes the teeth of the composers Straus and Brahms. Judge not, lest ye be judged!" (Robin Kvapil)
