Good Film
Lenka Benešová skillfully worked the creative process into her final project. The filmmaker’s documentary film Prostředek, about the colorful personality of Stanislav Lysák, is incorporated between episodes taken from the filmmaker’s family life and sources of inspiration. The path to a good film becomes the protagonist of this short film.

Umm al-Hiran
Under the surface of the modern state of Israel there lie stories that are largely hidden from European visitors. One of these is the fate of Palestinian Bedouins in underdeveloped areas living in unrecognized villages. A meditatively experimental film by an Israeli-Czech team captures the atmopshere of these places and the tragic fates of some of their inhabitants.

Fifty Years Later
A topical film created for the anniversary of the Warsaw pact occupation cleverly combines 3D animation and actual archival footage. The film’s main character is a Russian solder who looks back on the invasion and comes to a paradoxical conclusion of how his life could have been very different.

If you place one spaghetti on second spaghetti

Everything will End up in a Pine Box
A mini-portrait, treading lightly on the fringe of a gently parodic self-portrait, of the collector/gynaecologist/animal breeder/honorary consul/Dutch/Czech gentleman Oldřich Uttendorfský. Through the panopticon of an ordinary day, we are introduced to a man in whom languages, times, and cultures blend in a way that is difficult to analyse and interpret.‬

Show me the war
Fixers are local guides who tell journalists how to get the best images of war – from what angle to shoot a ruined airport, which checkpoint to pass through and which to avoid. A wartime road movie from eastern Ukraine, the film follows the fixer Ruslan and a Columbian television crew that wants just one thing – to see war.

Love at the Monastery
In this highly personal film, the director returns to a French Christian community in order to relive thoughts and feelings from several years prior, and to see the woman whom he loved but from whom he had been forcibly separated. Literary journals blend with video, physical love with spiritual love.

Kov o kov
Mum is. Mum lives. There’s a scar on her chest, but don’t pay any notice. There’s a heart inside that is beating. Metal against metal. A mechanical aortic valve to replace the one that was all used up. The heart beats on. The film poem gets beneath the surface, opening up the skin through projection. It shows a process that gives new life.
