Masterclass Barbora Chalupová, Vít Klusák: Caught in the Net

original title: Masterclass Barbora Chalupová, Vít Klusák: V síti – vystřižené scény
country: Czech Republic
running time: 100 min.


Vít Klusák and Barbora Chalupová shot an unprecedented documentary never before seen in a Czech context. The creators focused on child abuse on the internet and sexual predators seeking their prey deep within the bowels of social networks. The aim of the psycho-social experiment was to hunt down and catch these predators and find out their motives. In the masterclass, the filmmakers will guide us through the material that didn't make it into the final cut of the film, but that still remains an important topic for discussion. We will talk about the cut, dramaturgy, and grasping the substance of the film so that the resulting documentary is coherent in all respects and meets high ethical demands. 


Barbora Chalupová (1993) is a student at the Department of Documentary Film at FAMU. For Czech Television, she directed two episodes of Czech Journal: A Theory of Equality (2017) Realities (2019). Vít Klusák (1980) graduated from the Department of Documentary Film at FAMU where he currently works as a teacher. In his films, he systematically returns to the frictional surfaces between creation and society. Film credits: All for the Good of the World and Nosovice 2010), The White World According to Daliborek (2017).
