synopsis

A melancholic metaphor depicts transportation links and the logistical construction of a futuristic view of a dark, sterile environment. Fluorescent machines and vehicles that serve man live their own lives until their last moment, when they fall into pieces of the material from which they were constructed.

To Be Framed
Recent history dies out in the overgrown landscape of a former German military base where children are playing. Through performances by young protagonists and disturbing commentary that suggests that the innocence of the images isn’t what it appears to be, the film reflects on the phenomenon of violence and encourages us to learn from the past.

The Colonel’s Photograph
Excerpts from a television interview with Eugène Ionesco in an adaptation of his absurd story The Colonel’s Photograph, which is dominated by the motif of a swimming pool that conceals drowned bodies. The visual pun is a compilation of techniques: animation, video, 3D graphics, and text, which give the seemingly random scenes a sort of structure.

Traffic
A bustling scene somewhere between documentary, abstraction, and animation, based on a static view of the intersection of Adam Mickiewicz and Józef Piłsudski Streets in Warsaw, is transformed into an audiovisual jumble of noises, shapes, colors, and movement, among which we see pedestrians, cars, and public transport vehicles.

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.

Not Shown
Blinking icons, pop-up windows, a blaring alarm clock, and the blipping of unread messages are normal parts of our everyday lives. The creator turns her back on the endless stream of information and attempts to escape from the world of modern communication technologies for at least five minutes to devote some attention to herself.

WhereWhoYouMeAre
The filmmaker explores the principles of movement while dreaming, and constructs them outside of the world of dreams by inserting graphic elements into images from the real world and simulating the space of a computer game in the virtual world. As she passes through these fictional worlds, the main character takes on a real as well as animated form.

Droplets
The film takes a look at the lifelike behavior of inanimate matter in the form of droplets, allowing us to observe a change in shape or collective behavior. These droplets, like the robots in the famous work R.U.R., are made of chemically synthesized matter that resembles living matter, and the film thus allows the viewer to empathize with the feelings of the mad scientist Rossum from Čapek’s play. “Our film aims to pay tribute to pioneering ideas in the field of robotics and show new ways in which they can be used to create art.” J. Čejková

Hypnagogia
An animated depiction of the half-waking state before we fall asleep. Various people describe how they see the state between waking and sleeping, while the visual show hypnagogic hallucinations – i.e., the vision that accompany the process of falling asleep. Colours are intertwined with shapes to create abstract landscapes from which every now and then concrete objects emerge.

Unknown
The experimental film Unknown presents prototypical urban motifs, such as public transport and escalators, transforming them into abstract black and grey fragments using rotoscope animation to the accompaniment of authentic sounds. Using these scenes, the filmmaker is trying to evoke in the viewer the subjective feeling of alienation in the anonymous environment of a city.

Resonare De INTER Solaris
This thought experiment, based on Brůha's kinetic sculptures, views time as a landscape. Eerie images of rocks submerged in fog represent an anonymous characterless space. The stone terrain becomes a face into the wrinkles of which time is written as the metaphysical plane of material existence.   "According to Augustine, time is not just the movement of celestial bodies, but rather an idea, a being, a metaphysical category, an environment." Resonare de INTER Solaris

Life in Patterns
Domlátil’s short animated film shows the daily rhythms of life at a speed of twelve frames per second. He works with real objects that we use in our regular lives or that we pass by without noticing them. Working with the textures, patterns and symbols he finds on them, he creates a visual continuity.

Self-portrait as Doubt
Self-portrait as Doubt is a video collage-essay on the topic of a doubt and an uncertainty. In the film the author through an image and sound develops a contemplation about his own art praxis. An introspective work combines author's shots with appropriated material, a family archive, drawings and reflections to a form of a multi-layered collage.
