In the Name of Security

director: Markéta Janků
original title: Ve jménu bezpečnosti
country: Czech Republic
year: 2020

synopsis

Does society behave any different in the times of crisis? How much are we willing to sacrifice for our own safety? Were we overwhelmed by fear or panic during the coronavirus crisis in the Czech Republic and Slovakia? And who did we blame for the outbreak? Through three stories, the film contemplates the narrow-mindedness of people masquerading as an effort to stay safe. 
 

biography

Markéta Janků (1995) studied transcultural communication at UHK. Already during her studies, she started working as a documentary filmmaker for the Memory of the Nation project, and soon afterwards moved to the UK, where she studied film at Middlesex University of London.

The Bridge
Living is like crossing a bridge. Is it possible that what looks like it is part of a cityscape is in fact a living being? Just like people, it is born, it lives an eventful life, it experiences its fate and its quiet forsaken aging, and then it inevitably dies. Meet Kyiv’s Rybalski Bridge and its memories.

A Few Words about Disobedience
In the Czech Republic, where democracy is on the decline and a populist movement rules, it may seem as if the issue of climate change has been relegated to the background. The environmental initiative   Limity jsme my / The Limits Are Us uses civic disobedience, whereby the participants knowingly break the law, to draw attention to this problem. Disobedience, which traditionally bears a negative connotation, is a path towards emancipation and change.

Jailed memory
How such a historically significant building as the Uherské Hradiště Prison projects itself onto the everyday lives of those who have it right under their noses – students and teachers of the School of Decorative Arts and what impact does it have on them? With this particular case, the film tries to show the importance of historical sights in general.
