Sokol de Paris

Sokol de Paris

2010 / Czech Republic / 18min

An ironic sketch, made as an exercise in the first year of the master's programme in the department of documentary film making at FAMU film school in Prague. It follows a ceremony held by the Sokol organisation - the traditional Czech physical education movement - in a French village near Paris. The traditional exercises, including gymnastics and marching, are accompanied by the cooking of traditional Czech food and its mass consumption. The singing of the Czech national anthem, the laying of wreaths on a monument and other ceremonial rituals form a grotesque contrast to the good things cooking in huge pots, the bottles of beer and the remains left on the plates... This investigation of displays of patriotism in a curious place and an obscure context ends in a mass pose by all the participants in the ceremony.
