“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.

For four years, the orthodox priest Libor Halík has been singing psalms aloud outside the maternity hospital in Brno. This is his everyday protest against abortions. The documentary features a man who is convinced that Czech people prefer laziness to hard-working Christian love, that abortion is murder, homosexuality is perversion, and atheism is a deadly sin. His prayer guard outside the "abortion factory" meets with opposition, but he still goes on holding the cross and saying: You can never be a prophet in your own house and land. The film was awarded at IDFF Jihlava 07 as the best Audience film.
