24th Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival
The River Escapes
An essay on exploitation of homes of native inhabitants and the behaviour of colonists breaks out into an anti-capitalist political pamphlet resulting in divergent horizontal and vertical motifs of a critical analysis of liberal cosmopolitan elites toward life space as a single-use, expandable commodity, contradicting its displaceable character.
"To build other worlds, one needs not to abandon western mind-structure but to transduce it with local, specific and ancient notions. This film is the beginning of a quest towards that realization." E. Makoszay Mayén
