27th Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival
The Holy Spine
director: Šimona Müllerová
original title: Svatá páteř
country: Czech Republic
running time: 18 min.
synopsisAnimals exhausted by the unbearable weight of existence, existential frustration and everyday squabble. Humans as empty puppets waiting for the command from the director or romping actors frenziedly protecting their fragile egos. A theatrical, multidimensional performance inspired by the author’s frustrations and artistic (dis)illusions.
“We have a problem with you; we have a problem with us. We’re afraid to speak without metaphors.”
biographyŠimona Müllerová (* 1998) was born in Bratislava and she is completing her bachelor’s degree at the Department of Documentary Film at the Film and TV School of Academy of Performing Arts in Prague (FAMU). Her directorial style defies common documentary practices. Rather than observable reality, she explores diverse images of inner realities and other intangible spaces.
