Founded in 2001, the INSTITUTE OF DOCUMENTARY FILM (IDF) is a non-profit training and networking centre based in Prague, Czech Republic, focused on the support of East European documentary films and their wider promotion. Our activities support filmmakers through all stages of completion – development, funding, production, post-production, and distribution. We aim at individual filmmakers (tailored consultations), groups of carefully selected professionals with projects or films (Ex Oriente Film, East European Forum, East Silver, Doc Launch, etc.), broader professional community (East Doc Platform), as well as the general public (portal www.DOKweb.net). We closely work with key int. festivals, broadcasters, distributors, sales agents, markets, or training initiatives and serve as the GATEWAY TO EAST EUROPEAN DOCUMENTARY FILM.
This film by Radek Tůma is a modern lyrical experiment that is fascinating for its formal immediacy and spontaneous expressions of joy as it emphasizes the sensual aspects of life and a return to nature. Tůma's film is a sovereign cinematic space which, broken up into many chapters, takes an unconventional look at contemporary Czech society. The opening political grotesque on the presidential election is drowned out by the ecstatic ramblings of philosophising (and chattering) fragments turning on the sought-out axis of life and the world, and especially the introspective images full of colourful objectivity and charming humour, elevated to the level of pure poetry.
