Filip Javora, Ondřej Javora, 2016
It's a social satire by a genre and talks about the responsibility of an individual for his actions and the extent of the impact on others. The story of the film follows the everyday routine of Ed. A completely normal person, living in an ordinary suburb with his ordinary family with uninteresting employment at airport security. The movie shows with fair momentum and exaggeration that people like Ed do matter and how exactly can his ignorance and irresponsibility inflict considerable damage upon the world.
Eliška Chytková, 2012
This story is about an imagination which was chained up for a long time and then set free with a lot of strength. It is about playing God in a childlike and honest way.
