Graduates - Freedom Is Not for Free

  • Slovakia
Audio Tracks 

Documentary film GRADUATES is about the struggle of young people, who, after graduating, find themselves in the reality and have to adapt to the needs of society. Oftentimes, the graduates have to accept tough conditions that do not meet their interests or expectations. Their plans and dreams collide with the global financial crisis, they do not understand the market rules and feel they live in an unjust country. An graduated actor has to work as a steward for airlines, a photographer runs several shops with pet supplies and a student, who wants to be successful in the field of visual modern arts but finds out that it is not simple at all in a reality where money has the biggest value... We are free, but to what extent are we able to take fate into our own hands?
