Long Live Hunting!

Long Live Hunting!

2014 / Czech Republic / 66min

Three real hunters lure viewers on an exotic safari, on their search for trophies, and to their deer stands in the woods. With a brisk polka tempo, the film presents various hunting techniques and the protagonists’ varied personal relationships to hunting. The filmmaker sets out after the scent of animals in the greenery, and with hyperbole and exaggerated poeticism shows the entire hunting process from luring the animals to their gutting and final ingestion. This concisely constructed documentary essay takes aim at Czech hunting, but to the hunters it doesn’t make much difference.
