Barbora Chalupová (Czech Republic)

Czech film director of the new young generation. Her filmography starts with the student film TRANSITION (2014). The following film ARMS READY (2016) looked into the enormous increase in the number of applicants for a firearms license in the Czech Republic. This film was nominated for the Pavel Koutecký Award and appeared in the competition sections of the One World festival or IDFF Jihlava. Her next work is A THEORY OF EQUALITY (2017), in which the director traced the state of the current debate on gender equality in the Czech Republic. Her experimental film ON THE EDGE (2018) about the Czech flat Earth movement was shortlisted for the best student film award at Magnesia Awards. The film was selected for competition sections of international festivals such as In the Palace ISFF, Sao Paulo ISFF, IBAFF, Elbe Dock, and others. Last year, Barbora presented her author documentary REAL (E)STATE (2019) which reflects the current housing crisis. Right now, Barbora is finishing A NEW OATH, a film which deals with the legalisation of marriage for same-sex couples. At the same time, she is conducting a research for a feature documentary film THE END OF THE WORLD about spreading misinformation.
