27th Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival
director: Elen Řádová
original title: Wet video
country: Czech Republic
running time: 1 min.
synopsisThe erotic charge of the title is underscored by its visual treatment in the film’s opening, with pink typography evoking the aesthetics of hourly hotels and titillating shows from the 1990s. Instead of sexual imagery, however, the film consists of an animated choreography of two apples, reminiscent of the surrealist stop-motion films of Jan Švankmajer.
