“My work has two strands: the first one deals with direct political images of violence, aggression and protest, mostly in Israeli-Palestinian context. It’s critique of news media, researching the complex, both realistic and surrealistic aspects of these images. The second strand of videos is more abstract and universal, dealing with cognitive, environmental and existential issues,” says the director about his works.
Celebration of a Lonely Palm // Slávnosť osamelej palmy (Orig.)

Film unavailable :-(
Sorry, this film is no longer available.
This documentary film pays tribute to Elo Havetta (1838-1975), a solitary director, an author of only two feature films (Celebration in the Botanical Garden, and Wild Lilies) that belong to the best Slovak cinema. At their time they brought playfulness and spontaneity, on which the authors of the documentary base their happening - a journey to the director s grave in the search for his legacy.
