24th Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival
Slav Epic Complex
A fantastic epic. A nationalist construct. Ideal for taking a selfie. A bunch of paint on a canvas that belongs on the junk heap. Anachronism. A transcendental experience. Working with the playfulness of the cinematic medium, the filmmaker takes us on a tour of the serious world of art, and gives voice to a theorist, an art restorer, a philosopher and a Japanese fan of Mucha.
Jan Strejcovský is a student at FAMU’s department of documentary film. The Ji.hlava IDFF showed his previous student films Igor’s Great Emotion (2012) and Impotence of Power (2014) in the years they were made.
