SH_T HAPPENS

INTERNATIONAL COMPETITION 

Czech Republic, Slovakia, France 2019 / 13 min
Directed by: 
Dávid Štumpf, Michaela Mihályi

Produced by: Peter Badač / BFILM.cz (CZ)
Co-produced by: BFILM (SK), Bagan Films (FR), FAMU (CZ) ... (full crew)

An apartment building full of self centered inhabitants. Utterly exhausted caretaker and his sexually frustrated wife. Widowed deer drowning his sorrows in loads of alcohol... While trying to cope with their problems, they find themselves in a hard to solve triangle asking for absurd and irrational solutions. The consequences can easily become permanent, sometimes maybe too permanent. The film is a loose adaptation of a well-known biblical story while transforming it into an contemporary ironic narrative about how the world sometimes works.

THE KITE

Directed by: Martin Smatana
Produced by: Peter Badač / BFILM.cz (CZ)
Co-produced by: BFILM (SK), FAMU (CZ), CeTA (PL) ... (full crew)

The Kite deals with the topic of death in a metaphorical and symbolic way. Through the relationship between a little boy and his grandpa, the film shows that none of us is here forever and all living creatures must die, but at the same time it reminds us that death doesn’t mean the end of our journey.
