25th Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival
Everything Has Its Own Time
Viola Ježková’s experimentally conceived film presents real time and cinematic time as something woven into one image. The image layers are often layered over one another, and the audio tracks are intermixed. This very personal documentary is a poetic exploration of memory, consciousness and future expectations as inexorably joined by reality. Filing by before our eyes (before the cinematographic gaze) are scenes from the past and images of everyday life; in the voiceover, inner voices recite fragments of long-ago dialogues between those who have left us but have not left us alone.
“How to come to terms with loss? How to treat the remains? How to understand the meaning of memories? When we enter a picture, we leave the frame. We meet ideas of images. And through this encounter we gain a new image – an image for the future.” V. Ježková
Viola Ježková (1979) is graduate of Charles University’s Protestant Theological Faculty and FAMU’s department of documentary film, where she is currently working towards her Ph.D. In 2009, the Ji.hlava IDFF screened her film Not Just Standing, But Rising Up (Milan Balabán) (2009).
