“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.

Sorry, this film is no longer available.
A curious and quaint medley of beauty and ugliness, wisdom and stupidity, joy and sadness, filth and colourfulness. The curious place, where time has draw still. A story of the lost mining settlements in the Northern Moravia and their bizarre inhabitants. Duing the 18th and 19th centuries, they migrated to this area from all corners of Europe to get jobs. Now the settlements are like a god-forsaken open-air museum of old industrial architecture and human qualities. The absurd situations of everyday life raise both tears and smiles.
