Sen
“I dreamt about a house in which I could only walk up. The higher I got, the larger and more spacious the rooms were. The storeys were stripped of anything unnecessary, which was replaced by functionality. In the end, all that was left was me. Me and an emptiness without human dimension. And? Luckily, it was just a dream…” (FAMU)

PRATUR: Znovuzrození
An artificially made film about the artificially (re)created aurochs, the ancestor to domestic cattle, which is supposed to awaken not only the diversity of the landscape but perhaps also our own forgotten wildness.
