Silent Days

  • Slovakia
  • Czech Republic

The protagonists of this poetic film, in which the boundary between reality and fiction is erased, are the most excluded of the excluded – deaf children living in the impoverished conditions of Slovakia’s Roma settlements.

The film is separated into four chapters, each tracking a different group of protagonists who all have one thing in common – they were born deaf. Little Sandra likes to play football and admires Ronaldinho. Marián worships trains and wants to be an engine driver. Teenagers Alena and René are expecting a baby and long for it to be born healthy. The trio of Roman, Kristián and Karmen help their parents by collecting junk to be sold and dream of one day having a house with a flush toilet. Through static, thoughtfully composed shots, the film records ordinary scenes from their everyday lives in an environment where innocent children’s games are in sharp contrast to their bleak surroundings.
