Crooks

Silvie Dymáková

Description

A special screening of Silvie Dymáková’s documentary film Crooks, held under the auspices of the Representation of the European Commission in the Czech Republic.

Manipulation, pressure, denigration, aggression. Hidden cameras show the cruel reality behind “direct-sales events” for senior citizens, who use their meagre pensions to pay outrageous prices for oft-shoddy products. Some of them swear that they will never attend a similar event, while others can’t resist the temptation and go again. What drives them? Curiosity? Loneliness? Or addiction?

The filmmaker spent a year attending events at which retirees are brainwashed. The screening will take place in the presence of the film’s author and director, plus psychologist Romana Mazalová and other interesting guests.
