24th Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival
A somewhat ironic documentary study focusing on the ambivalence of new neighborhoods. The filmmaker focuses on poorly-planned new buildings: enthusiastic young families with children move into their new home, but the area around the panel apartment blocks is one huge mud puddle, forcing mothers with prams and forlorn children to traverse it.
Václav Táborský (1928) emigrated in 1968 to Canada, where he founded the first film school focusing on filmmaking practices. In his work, he addresses primarily contemporary social issues.
