Five Hundred Plateaus

  • Czech Republic

A conceptual experimental film partly inspired by the book A Thousand Plateaus by the French philosophers Giles Deleuze and Félix Guattari. Andrea Slováková updates and ponders selected concepts of this fundamental theoretical work without an explanatory text, using only fragments of reality and a soundtrack, the individual layers of which are revealed and fragmented by the movement of the camera. Just as both thinkers argued with the dominant way of Western thinking, Slováková's film shows how to think differently in just six minutes – not through words, but through images and sounds.
