With this daring motto, playfully ironic visual design and primarily interesting film selection, Visegrad Film Festival presented its programme in Cork, Ireland. How was it, where does it go and why is it actually held in Ireland?

Nobody Is Listening is an attempt to portray the philosophy of one of the greatest Czech thinkers of our time - philosopher, sociologist and essayist Václav Bělohradský. It is an opportunity to think about the current state of human existence in political, media, universal, social and personal contexts. Bělohradský agreed to the filming after a year of persuasion. The film documents the meetings of the philosopher and the director in different parts of Central Europe. It is built on the question about the nature of freedom in today's society when one can say anything without any impact: "In totalitarian regimes, one must be cautious about words because there is always someone listening. On the other hand, democracy is a regime where no one listens to anyone," says Bělohradský. The philosopher quite openly talks about his freedom in the academic world, about the meaning of his work in the digital age, about his place in Czech society after 1989, about the myths he once believed and the myths some Czech are not willing to let go. Why does the Czech public, political and artistic life often resembles a fake rather than a true story?
