Welcome to Czechia / Adam Martinec, Ondřej Erban, Damián Vondrášek / Česko 2021 / 68 min
This block of short feature films by three promising directors doesn’t only offer films with two-dimensional topics. In fact, it offers perspectives on the Czech weak spots, character traits, and emotions that we don’t want to but need to see. It can be said that it therefore helps identify Czech identity using a different style. The Anatomy of a Czech Afternoon takes the audience to beaches full of full fat bellies, over-fried food, and beer in plastic cups. The Opponent brings us almost uncomfortably close to one sneaky addiction – gaming. And Frontier highlights the line of inner integrity in people who are supposed to protect not only our borders but also our principles.
