Together Forever!

Together Forever!

Magda and Zuzanka share their little lives through phone conversations. The first cannot be without the second, while the second is self-absorbed. Why do they still communicate at all, and what do they actually have in common? Fragments of their absurd relationship appear in a kaleidoscope of situations from other lives, lived without recognizing their sense and direction, between fun and powerlessness, narcissism and fear of death. The present alternates with the past, rejection with the desire for closeness. Time passes, the elevator goes up, and the party has to end sometime. We’ve grown old. Does it surprise us?

Disconnected

Disconnected

They’re disconnected. From “normal society”, from necessary failure in the everyday struggle with “the world out there”. Withdrawn into themselves, (in)voluntarily imprisoned in their apartments and rooms, which they don’t leave for months, years, sometimes even entire decades. There are hundreds of thousands of them. In Japan, Brazil, Scandinavia, in the Czech Republic, and in other parts of the world. A generation in crisis? An disease of contemporary society? Hikikomori.

Whistleblowers

Whistleblowers

What lies beneath the marketing created images of the corporations whose products we consume daily? The desire to discover what is “behind” this and to inform the world about it led a young group of activists to collect concealed information, and to uncover the criminal practices of a multinational concern. They came to understand that they could not break free from this corporation’s influence. But after what they had discovered they couldn’t simply go on as before. What to do? And “who is” this corporation against whom they are fighting?
