In the Name of Security
Does society behave any different in the times of crisis? How much are we willing to sacrifice for our own safety? Were we overwhelmed by fear or panic during the coronavirus crisis in the Czech Republic and Slovakia? And who did we blame for the outbreak? Through three stories, the film contemplates the narrow-mindedness of people masquerading as an effort to stay safe.

Ma
This film is the video diary of a Ukrainian mother from Mariupol, a city close to the turbulent Donetsk Region. A series of several-minute long records of commonplace views from a window, following tracks in the snow, and strolls in the surroundings form a loving visual message for her daughter in Kyiv.

The Bridge
Living is like crossing a bridge. Is it possible that what looks like it is part of a cityscape is in fact a living being? Just like people, it is born, it lives an eventful life, it experiences its fate and its quiet forsaken aging, and then it inevitably dies. Meet Kyiv’s Rybalski Bridge and its memories.

Jailed memory
How such a historically significant building as the Uherské Hradiště Prison projects itself onto the everyday lives of those who have it right under their noses – students and teachers of the School of Decorative Arts and what impact does it have on them? With this particular case, the film tries to show the importance of historical sights in general.

First Last Journey
It awaits us all, few look forward to it and most of us is afraid of it. Death. When was the last time you talked about it? And is it even necessary? My dad is dying, and among thousand thoughts that run in my head there's one I cannot silence. We are no longer able to deal with death, not at all. Nobody taught us. In the world of modern technology, in our welfare society, we cannot cope with the most basic part of life, its end.
