This film, shot on 16mm colour film, explores the life of a person who steals things according to written lists. He takes only specific things that people need – primarily senior citizens, single mothers, and other socially marginalized people. When is a crime a crime? Where does this modern 21st-century Robin Hood live, and what do his activities bring him?

Al-Araqeeb
A documentary observing the fortunes of the Al-Araqarqeeb , a village that has been already destroyed 111 times. The Bedouin settlement was needed for military training, so the army ordered its evacuation in 1951. The inhabitants were not permitted to come back even after the date that was set for them to return. The village is being repeatedly demolished by the state of Israel since 2010.  The struggle between the state and its citizens continues.

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.

Umm al-Hiran
Under the surface of the modern state of Israel there lie stories that are largely hidden from European visitors. One of these is the fate of Palestinian Bedouins in underdeveloped areas living in unrecognized villages. A meditatively experimental film by an Israeli-Czech team captures the atmopshere of these places and the tragic fates of some of their inhabitants.

Blow-off!
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.

"Igor´s Great Emotion is a game for one of the most talented post-1989 directors. Contemporary self-reflection of daredevil deeds mixes with reconstructed fragments of laboriously etherized memory. But by calling oneself a “spiritual seeker”, one cannot bury the sleeping demons forever – and so during clinical death, only instant spiritual séances can bring the director back. An attempt at laying off the sedatives and resurrecting a director who ostentatiously killed himself by publishing Diary, or: Death of the Director in order to make the world his empire through the inclusion of the occult." (Jan Strejcovský)
