The Crossing

  • Czech Republic
Audio Tracks 

Twenty years ago, a car ran over a man at a pedestrian crossing in Prague's Čimická street. It was my dad. I couldn't walk across that crosswalk for years. A short poetic film from a place that has a special meaning for me and a glimpse into the relationship with my father.

This film was made during the My Street Films workshop under the guidance of Marika Pecháčková and Jan Sacher.
The film received first prize of the My Street Films Award as well as Student Jury Award.
