Searching for a Poet

Searching for a Poet

director: Pavlína Hůževková
original title: Hledá se básník
country: Czech Republic
year: 2023
running time: 10 min.


Is it possible to find a poet based on a poem that was written almost 25 years ago? The gonzo-style documentary movie depicts the author’s search for the poet who sent her a poem at the end of the millennium. Will she be able to track him down or will she end up finding something else entirely?

This film will be featured in the online edition of Ji.hlava IDFF.
