The Diary of Grandmother Němcová

  • Czech Republic
Audio Tracks 

Our aim is to capture the life in a house in Zbraslav, as a place that could represent a slice of the world and merge various events and connections, both of a daily and timeless nature. As a point of departure, we use the diary of grandmother Alena Němcová from Zbraslav and film The Diary of Grandmother Němcová that we made ten years ago (using the diary of Jiřina Němcová - Alena's mother-in-law) as our "script". The diaries of both women come from the same house and they both include notes about matters of a private, family, social, real and also surreal nature. We see these as an opportunity to shoot a film that will point out that banality can indeed be part of our perception but not of the world itself. Our device is just a change of banality to singularity.
