“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.

The film, shot from a boat floating in St. Johann’s Rapids on the Vltava River, became the first Czech film awarded abroad (Grand Gold Medal at the 1st International Film Exhibition in Vienna in 1912). The film’s author, Antonín Pech, was inspired by the work of Jan Kříženecký. In 1911, he and his partners founded Kinofa and started producing documentary and fiction films.
