synopsis

A portrayal of 11-year-old Rozárka who decided to stop eating meat. She does not like that 50% of animals in factory farming are slaughtered for no reason. The film explores the subject of openness and consideration towards the planet and nature through her story. Compassion, which is the driving force behind Rozárka’s decision not to eat meat, is naturally transferred into a wider social context when the girl chooses to meet cooks from the vegan restaurant Kuchařky bez domova (Homeless Cooks).

The Crimean (Pen) Insula
A documentary look at this current political issue presents unique scenes of life in the annexed territory where foreign journalists and television crews are not allowed. The film is a mosaic portrait of several men and women, whose everyday lives have been affected by the political crisis between Ukraine and Russia. Just as international pressure and sanctions have made the Crimean peninsula a de facto island, so too are the supporters and opponents of Russian annexation isolated (pen)insulas in search of their identity within the sea of a divided society.

Czech Journal: Okamura Brothers
A cinematic portrait of three siblings and a society that unites and divides many in a similar fashion as Hayata, Osamu and Tomia. The intertwining of the often-conflicting visions of the three brothers with the history of their family and the attitudes of the other protagonists of the film is a concrete testimony to how the political situation is influenced by personal and social experiences. The film, thus, not only suggests why we are in today's political constellation, but it also reports on the state of contemporary social opinion, both in relation to their authorities and their citizens.
