synopsis

By combining animated real objects, abstract illustrations, and computer graphics, a collage emerges of seemingly incompatible elements through which the filmmakers show the four basic elements – earth, air, water, and fire – and one place – they search for inspiration and passion in structures, shapes, surfaces, and materials of Švihov Castle.

biography

The film is a collective work by a group of six students from the Faculty of Design and Art at the University of Western Bohemia, who took advantage of the fact that each works in a different area of art when creating this film.

other films in the section

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.

Pastiche
Inspired by the concept of retromania, the filmmaker calls attention to the current trend of recycling older visual styles and artifacts from the last decades of the 20th century. The numerous defects in image quality and the psychedelic soundtrack from homemade cassette recordings were created on purpose when digitalizing the original analogue material.

A Place
WIPP is a nuclear waste repository located in USA. Two teams of artists and scientists were called up in nineties of last century to answer a lot of questions which suddenly raised on the horizon. How to comunicate with next generations? How to explain to them what is stored beneath the ground in order to stop them digging further? How to pass the message through at least ten thousand years? The result of this think-tank are three reports which are the core of this movie.   “Building the Anticity as a heritage (a crazy version of the UNESCO heritage), our folly and dazzle caused by nuclear energy.” T.

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.

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 Silk Road Vertigo
Out of desire to prove the power of socialism, Marshal Tito had a railway line built across all of Yugoslavia. In the post-ideological 21st century, the counterpart example to his deed might be the modern-time Chinese megalomaniac Silk Road portfolio of projects. A video essay shot in Montenegro, Hong Kong, Kazakhstan and China brings out a perspective on the global vision of Chinese state-run capitalism.

The video and rap clip confronts contemporary feminism and capitalism. The sober environment of economic forecasts and cash flows is transformed into a psychedelic 3D animation depicting a witch session. The film culminates with the author’s rap that hyperbolically criticizes the power and role of money in today’s society.

Delimitation
A young woman searches for a new apartment in a busy city. The film tests the possibilities of film language by placing more emphasis on the interplay of sound and movement than on classical character dialogue, and instead of traditional narration, it combines stylized movements with expressive dance that suddenly interrupts the flow of the story at certain moments.   “What fascinates me is the space itself and our ability to discover ourselves through it, in particular that exact place we can call our home. The space we are surrounded by creates a constant dialogue with our own identity.” T. Vejvodová

Abstract Horror
The philosophical dystopia presents warning outlines of the near future where modern technology will not be a sign of progress, but rather decline. Behind the layer of film images, there is a monster created by computer animation, whose abstract virtual body represents the invisible ideological administration.

Phantom skies
We are in alternative reality which philosophical state is proliferated by invisible authorities and overall shame from being under the reign of natural and cosmic forces. Fast and violent technological developement allows the human to tame the atmospherical phenomenons that schedule his life for thousands of years.

There Is Something Behind The Sound
This sound-generated animation gives the audible world an impressive visual form of moving geometric shapes or a starry sky. The Max For Live and Touch Designer visual programming languages turn an original soundtrack into space galaxies where the technical and the human, the earthly and the spiritual, and machines and poetry meet.

Operation Urban Warrior
Anthony Bird is a war veteran who was the sole survivor of a military operation in his unit. His memories are as surreal as the animation which simulates the course of the incident in the form of a computer game. Everything looks flat but we must trust our own sensees which tell us that in reality, the world isn't flat.
