original title: Mokrá svatba

year: 2017

synopsis

Behind the curtain of the film strip the concreteness of images appears and disappears again with varying levels of visuals shifts and deformations. The sounds of the film’s movement mix with voices that give the scenes context but nevertheless prevent a reconstruction of the fable. – The story dissolves, and during this layering we move further away from it ever being one.

Binary Revolver
Mona Lisa for robots. A series of moving images created using binary operations in an open source software program called Revolver, which is similar to image synthesizers in which text instructions are transformed into visual data. The soundtrack was created by recycling pixels and converting color values into sound waves.

Blinking icons, pop-up windows, a blaring alarm clock, and the blipping of unread messages are normal parts of our everyday lives. The creator turns her back on the endless stream of information and attempts to escape from the world of modern communication technologies for at least five minutes to devote some attention to herself.

Broken Windows
This audiovisual collage places shots from Hitchcock’s Rear Window into paper set decoration, expanding the original movie’s ideas in a playful and provocative mode. As viewers, we must get through to the characters within a maze of colourful layers and alien objects that visualize the process of medialization and point out the framework limiting our view.

WhereWhoYouMeAre
The filmmaker explores the principles of movement while dreaming, and constructs them outside of the world of dreams by inserting graphic elements into images from the real world and simulating the space of a computer game in the virtual world. As she passes through these fictional worlds, the main character takes on a real as well as animated form.

Moréna Rex
The video and rap clip confronts contemporary feminism and capitalism. The sober environment of economic forecasts and cash flows is transformed into a psychedelic 3D animation depicting a witch session. The film culminates with the author’s rap that hyperbolically criticizes the power and role of money in today’s society.

Tradition
The town of Kyjov has two traditions: folk culture and methamphetamine. Dressing up in folk costumes is one of the things that the region of Moravian Slovakia is known for, but it is a façade funded from the municipal budget. Then there is the less idyllic reality of daily life, the status of men and women, and drinking at the 24-hour bar or in one’s basement. An exacting rhythmic film poem, shot and edited like its subject – traditionally, i.e., using analogue film.

Images of the Outer World
Happines. Sadness. A man. Life. A computer programme generates dozens of password images per second. The cell phone records the outside world into short clips. Their visual collage is accompanied by a voice-over – an interview of the director with a chatbot in an experimental documentary co-created by computer technology.

Traffic
A bustling scene somewhere between documentary, abstraction, and animation, based on a static view of the intersection of Adam Mickiewicz and Józef Piłsudski Streets in Warsaw, is transformed into an audiovisual jumble of noises, shapes, colors, and movement, among which we see pedestrians, cars, and public transport vehicles.

The Weather of Time
A metaphorical weather forecast portrays human emotions and sentiments in confrontation with contemporary social debates. The lightly satirical tone of the tv moderator’s presentation accompanies a video collage featuring a central motif of the Earth in which Africa is shrouded by clouds of existential questions and a spiritual crisis front threatens Europe.

Dream I Had / Virgin Fields
A passing landscape projected into a hypnotic pulsating structure explores time perception in relation to motion. The iridescent chain of trunks, branches and leaves zooming past creates counterpoint to the cyclically re-emerging ambient soundscape interspersed with beats by Evitceles, a Bulgarian experimental musician.

Liquid Mother Love
This film by the author duo Geislerová and Mazúr builds on the concept of the so-called liquid love introduced by sociologist Zygmunt Bauman and the work of theorist Elisabeth Badinter in its critical analysis of the question of predestination of women for the mother role realized through a collage of shots of women symbolizing motherhood as well as emancipation which questions the inevitability of this frequently debated social role.

Water Pure Azure
People’s limited view of the world often places the human perspective above the natural cycles. Visual details capture the egotism that often causes us to not see the essence of things, Together with an apt and uncompromising voiceover they call on us to become aware of the impact our actions have on our surroundings.
