Synopsis

Four short stories.

Note

Between 1987 and 1992, two friends – Pavel Marek (1963) and Roman Včelák (1962 – 1993) – created several films on 16mm format; first amateur ones in their independent film association Bulšit film, established in 1983, and later also in the framework of their studies at the Film and TV School of Academy of Performing Arts in Prague. The series of three short films and one medium-footage film was composed thanks to the company Negativ and other coproducers including the National Film Archive. The films were refined, transformed to 35mm format and distributed by the Association of Czech Film Clubs. Pixelation was used in the films along with classically performed scenes.
