With the help of a factual description of a series of consecutive actions between fire and sky, this short film seeks to answer the question of what’s going to become of us. And how an old man’s knee joint can transform into a whole new object in the most ordinary way.

A love story of two ill-fated statues filmed from their own subjective perspectives. This film explores a common problem amongst sculpture students, whose works often have nowhere to go and are left to be destroyed as a result. The refined audio track is complemented by minimalist dialogue. When art becomes a burden made in vain, this mere solid matter becomes disowned by its creator and cast loose.

A parallel drawn between the construction of a sidewalk and the structure of a language. The film’s creator, having grown up in many European countries, comes to the Czech Republic and tries to master the language of her childhood. She infiltrates the world of asphalt workers but deliberately refrains from asking even once why in Czech they say: “to have a potty mouth like an asphalt worker.” The film is both playfully and ingenuously structured, using animation and stylised passages from the space of one's own mind.

The workshop is led by Jan Šípek. Students: Anežka Fišárková, Širín Nafariehová, Kryštof Zvolánek, Michael Jiřinec, Juliana Moska, and Josef Švejda.

Grandfather’s Magic
This portrait of the filmmaker’s grandfather, stage manager of the Laterna Magika and slightly eccentric intellectual, is stylised into a surreal performance. In a small space, the film builds an original formal structure that freely oscillates between playfulness and illustration, childishness and seriousness, the Buddhistic here and now and sharp patterns of thoughtful post-production.
