synopsis

Anthony Bird is a war veteran who was the sole survivor of a military operation in his unit. His memories are as surreal as the animation which simulates the course of the incident in the form of a computer game. Everything looks flat but we must trust our own sensees which tell us that in reality, the world isn't flat.

Funeral
Through performances in the post-industrial landscape of the Most Basin, the filmmaker addresses the consequences of exploiting natural resources. Live tableaux, in which symbolic funerals for the devastated landscape - paradoxically full of strange unnatural beauty – are held, are a critical commentary on how we deal with the natural environment.

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.

This Kind of Spring Has Never Been Yet
This personal essay relates the perception of space to the mental universe of screenwriter and director Pavel Juráček who found his “truly ideal place” in the town of Příbram. The sensitive combination of journal entries, intimate notes, and film fragments tries to break down conventional storytelling techniques to build an original world of timeless thinking.

Wild Eye - Annihilation of Space - Despite of Limitations
Transforming the author’s film from the 1970s, the film trilogy captures a naked woman’s body in gentle motion iterations.  The combination of abstract expressionism and the figural motif uses distinctive colours, rapid shape-shifting and the dynamics of the human silhouette.

Feeling My Own Body
Personal reflections by a woman with a distorted image of herself. The twin voiceover presents the stream of negative as well as comforting thoughts that run through the head of a women suffering from bulimia. The film thus reveals the changing nature and uncertainty of personal experience, while also exploring parts of the naked figure to share her beautiful yet despised body.

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.

War memorial
The film essay brings the audience right into the heart of a historical battle re-enactment. The hundreds of soldiers fighting in historical costumes imitate organized violence; the film oscillates between a game, a theatre play, a Spartakiad and Land art. The multiplied projections evoke war turmoil, further enhanced by quotes from Karel Čapek’s anti-war drama The Mother.

Buffer Zone Blues
The almost hallucinogenic whirlwind of virtual views of potential targets of a nuclear attack in a “buffer zone” shows the viewer an unpleasant proximity of total destruction, which threatened Czechoslovakia in the 1950s. The visuality of the film, reminiscent of direction finding, was created using the data from Google Maps.

De Potentia Dei
Potentia dei is a notion difficult to translate, but possible to explain. The same goes for a film essay by Ondřej Vavrečka, with signs and information, their interpretation and secrets as its main theme. The collage-like film uses sharp audiovisual contrasts to make people think.

The conglomerate eternity
An archaeologically significant site diffuses its memory through levels of the myths, rituals, and folk tales in an essayist discourse on the forms of historical continuity. Absence of contact sound and minimalist music emphasizing the visual motifs of both alive and inanimate tracks in the landscape.
