27th Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival
director: Vladimír Turner
original title: Guestlist
country: Czech Republic
running time: 19 min.
The guestlist - a symbol of the inviolability of the cream of society. The director alternates surreptitious recordings of the lives of the wealthiest, including meetings on yachts with whirlpools and sipping champagne at luxury parties, with a recording of his own artistic performance, in which a handful of individuals rule the world.
“White. Male. Rich. Have a yacht, luxury custom shoes, and gold cufflinks. Even richer. Have a heliport in the garden of your platinum palace. Don’t fit into these categories? Don't have a gold yacht or cufflinks? Don't have your own pig to look for truffles? You’re part of the 99 percent.” V. Turner
