“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.

In 1909 in the mining area around Rožňava one of the most modern mining factories in Europe was built. Almost 65 percent of the local people worked in the total of 17 mines. After communism collapsed the iron ore extraction was stopped being left with only one mining complex open. The film Miners’ Bread focuses on the inhabitants of Rakovnica, a village in Gemer, and through a series of portraits it provides a complex mental picture of the region converging in a belief that during communism people living there were happier and their lives were better.
