Blow-off!

director: Kateřina Dudová
original title: Vykuř!
country: Czech Republic

synopsis

In Czech, “vykuř!” is not only a command but now even an interjection. The film presents an elusive portrait of the ex-structural existence of a poet and modern-day king living outside the system and conventions, yet still moving through all shades of the spectrum of the meaning of this word.

biography

Kateřina Dudová (1987) studied theater directing at the Prague Academy of Performing Arts and is currently a third-year student of the Department of Documentary Film at FAMU. As in the theatre, she applies experimental amateur procedures to her films.

Show me the war
Fixers are local guides who tell journalists how to get the best images of war – from what angle to shoot a ruined airport, which checkpoint to pass through and which to avoid. A wartime road movie from eastern Ukraine, the film follows the fixer Ruslan and a Columbian television crew that wants just one thing – to see war.

Grandfather’s Magic
This portrait of the filmmaker’s grandfather, stage manager of the Laterna Magika and slightly eccentric intellectual, is stylised into a surreal performance. In a small space, the film builds an original formal structure that freely oscillates between playfulness and illustration, childishness and seriousness, the Buddhistic here and now and sharp patterns of thoughtful post-production.

Kov o kov
Mum is. Mum lives. There’s a scar on her chest, but don’t pay any notice. There’s a heart inside that is beating. Metal against metal. A mechanical aortic valve to replace the one that was all used up. The heart beats on. The film poem gets beneath the surface, opening up the skin through projection. It shows a process that gives new life.
