Ecce Ach Maco

Director: Tomáš Vaďura .
The Macocha Abyss is the biggest abyss of its kind in the Czech Republic and even in the Central Europe. It depth of 138m was a great challenge for both of the B.A.S.E. jumpers, Martin Trdla and Robin Kaleta. There was more than the jump which requires technical proficiency, there was the aim to show how easy and difficult it is to get prepared. At first sight it seems all the legal restrictions were broken for the humble thirst for fame and popularity, to be seen in a film. However, the jumpers wanted to point at absurdity of some rules and obstructions. The feature connecting the document to other ones by Jumps, o.s., the wish to lead nonspecialist audience through the backgrounds of B.A.S.E. While filming the unconventional documentary there were no fatal or other injuries to any members of the team, no harm to property private or state, and all the team behaved extremely carefully to protect the nature.

Where And What Is Zlin?

  With less than 2 weeks to go until the 50th anniversary celebrations begin for the ZLIN FILM FESTIVAL, the first major film  event following CANNES, the question I am hearing from associates is: where and what is Zlin? Well, let me answer that with some relevant information on a city both historic and modern. Zlin is a city situated in the southeastern Moravian district of what is now the Czech Republic. The city is a natural metropolis, a city of statues, a university seat and ...

Director: Václav Marhoul.
There is only a very thin line between heroism and cowardice. Courage is the will power, which no man has enough to spare. If used, it is soon exhausted. Courage is the capital, which we spend gradually. Thus, the last order may be the order to pay out the account drawing to zero. The deepest fear rises when a man is floundered by a current, all alone, having nothing to hold on and not being able to cope. This is the main topic and the artistic motto of this wartime psychological drama. North Africa, II. WW, Fall 1941. Jiri Pospichal, twenty years old, signs up as a volunteer in the Czechoslovak army. His naive ideas about heroism are rawly confronted with the hell of the African desert, complicated relationships in his unit and the ubiquitous threat of death. All this takes its cruel toll in the shape of his gradual loss of self respect and courage. He is full of self-confidence and patriotic ideals, yet at the same time is deeply frustrated by his father, whom he views as a collaborator. His closest companion is a Jewish soldier, Jan Lieberman, in many ways more mature. Their opposite, in turn, is Corporal Kohák, a former member of the French Foreign Legion, for whom warfare is above all a profession The psychological drama between these three characters, the differing attitudes and personalities of each of them, are, during the course of the story and most clearly in its dramatic climax, brought into confrontation with a clear and harsh test of the moral character of all. The plot of the film is freely based on the classic American novel “The Red Badge of Courage” by Stephen Crane, first published in New York in 1897.
