Recommend this film

Shutka is the largest Roma settlement in the Balkans. At least according to the words of a young local fisherman, who is the main protagonist of this documentary film, shot in co-production with Czech Television. The film is a guide through the streets of Shutka, where in every person we can find at least one national champion, or even world champion, regardless of what it is in. What is important is that each person believes in their uniqueness and others recognize it. In this ever-expanding society, space is made for competing religious representatives such as those participating in a Muslim dervish or the servants of God using the “medium” of Christian tradition. The local homosexual in his colourful wardrobe is no less respected that the greatest pair of lovers – prostitute Kasandra and the elderly Alfonso who enjoys walking around Shutka in a copy of Tito’s uniform. This Macedonian settlement, with its difficult-to-estimate population, also has its own music industry: from the recording studio to the workshop for music videos and even some big stars, who due to the active work of local music pirates must earn money in the old-fashioned way – at weddings, circumcision celebrities or funerals.

“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.
