24th Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival
Everything´s Gonna Be Fine
Producer Čestmír Kopecký had originally wanted to make a film about the changing face of Brno, but in the end director Robin Kvapil and co-writer Pavel Šplíchal created something more closely resembling Šplíchal’s ironic blog Prigl. In their “lovingly anarchistic” film, Brno forms the epicentre of a sarcastic look at Czech society. The naive and vacuous communist-era documentary with which Kvapil’s film opens gives way to the reporter’s bitter monologues right in front of the camera. These are intercut with acted sequences featuring Brno’s political elites, artists, and outcasts.
“People say that Brno is the only joke that is inhabitable. The entire film follows this logic.” R. Kvapil
Robin Kvapil (1982) studied theatre directing at JAMU and documentary film at FAMU. His past films include The Skull Man (2012, Ji.hlava IDFF 2012) and Fairyland (2014, Ji.hlava IDFF 2014); he also worked on the series Ex-premiers (2013, Ji.hlava IDFF 2013) and the anthology Big As Brno (2011, Ji.hlava IDFF 2011). Everything's Gonna Be Fine is his feature-length documentary debut.
