“I spent half of my life under communism. The regime change came as I was starting to think about the world and developing my views. The 1990s were fascinating, frenzied, filled with hope. I am thus someone who stands on one foot in the old world and on the other in the new one. At the same time I am very interested in history, be it family or Slovak history. I like to plunge myself in media res without knowing what the future holds in store. Therefore I considered the emergence of the Slovak Republic to be an inspiration, an interesting experiment that proved right.”


What is “Slovakia”? How to explain the notion of “Slovakia” of the past 20 years to an unknown stranger, a visitor from another planet? What is the genetic makeup or the software for “Slovakia”? How to use it? How does it change?

Slovakia 2.0 is a film about twenty years of independent Slovakia as seen from the perspective of ten film directors. It is composed of ten 10-minute films of different genres ranging from drama, through animation and documentaries, to experimental film. The ten recognised film directors who offer an answer to what is Slovakia include a wide range of generations, views and genres, namely Juraj Herz, Martin Šulík, Peter Kerekes, Zuzana Liová, Mišo Suchý, Ondrej Rudavský, Iveta Grófová, Peter Krištúfek, Viera Čákanyová, and Miro Jelok.

The result is unique artistic reflection of contemporary history of Slovakia and, equally, a reflection of Slovak cinematography in its different forms.
