Case Study

In the quantities of the audio-visual materials that surround us, films are permeating and reflecting on one another. It is essential to learn the context of contemporary cinema in which our film works are set and to consciously work with this context. Is originality possible anymore? This is the question me, Klára Tasovská, the co-author of most of the films I have collaborated on, and producer Tomáš Hrubý always ask ourselves ever since the early stages of developing our film script. In fact, when you are watching films you are actually already working on your own ideas and scripts.
