synopsis

"As opposed to the usual trend to be a narrowly defined specialist, in an attempt at understanding the world as a whole, biologist Daniel Frynta spans the fields of zoology, ethology, psychology, anthropology, ethnography, evolution, history, religion, and culture. However, there are so many things that it slowly becomes difficult to find time for his own life." (Andran Abramjan)

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.

"Igor´s Great Emotion is a game for one of the most talented post-1989 directors. Contemporary self-reflection of daredevil deeds mixes with reconstructed fragments of laboriously etherized memory. But by calling oneself a “spiritual seeker”, one cannot bury the sleeping demons forever – and so during clinical death, only instant spiritual séances can bring the director back. An attempt at laying off the sedatives and resurrecting a director who ostentatiously killed himself by publishing Diary, or: Death of the Director in order to make the world his empire through the inclusion of the occult." (Jan Strejcovský)
