Takes place during FAMUFEST 40

The screening of a series of short films will take place as part of the FAMUFEST 40.

One of the most famous quotes from the Danish philosopher Søren Kierkegaard says, “Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards.” It’s no wonder that before almost every important decision, we feel apprehensive because we don’t know what will follow. There is undoubtedly something instinctual about it. Worries are simply a part of all of us. They can be big or small, personal or generational. There is then no greater event than when we find the courage to overcome our fear. All of this, we – flesh and bone people – put into our characters and stories, secretly hoping that at least someone will understand us. And we hope that it will be you who understands us.

Anticorro / Petr Kamil Ponec / Czech Republic 2023 / 5 min. / without dialogue – A feathered monster searches the apartment of an egg collector at night for a rare specimen. But he is disturbed by the owner of the apartment. What fate awaits her?

12121 / Olga Srstkova / Czech Republic 2023 / 27 min. / Czech with English subtitles – Mental issues, alcoholism and deliberate exclusion from society have defined the world of a young artist up until a breaking point, signalized by numbers in the title. An introspective portrait depicts the moment of his return to life, attempting to capture the fragile maintaining of balance on the edge of nonexistence that’s so hard to grasp.

We Used to Have a Garden / Hana Slaninová / Czech Republic 2023 / 9 min. / Czech with English subtitles – In this meditative and playful timelapse documentary lets us observe a gardener and a garden gnome search a concrete courtyard for a lost garden.
