Director Zuzana Piussi started to shoot her film out of sheer despair. In the period between the 2010 elections and the 2012 elections, she was looking around with open eyes, recording the whole fuss: election campaigns, politicians, voters, demonstrations related to the “Gorila scandal” and the organizers of these protests, and so on. The resulting film brings a fascinating portrayal of the Slovakian society after 20 years of freedom and independence. A portrayal of Slovakia, which you want to close your eyes to. This authentic documentary is a must-see. For your own health and at your own risk. If you feel unwell, contact your doctor. Just to make sure. We are worth it.
