A film about coincidences about the Prague IMF and World Bank meeting in September 2000. The organism of the city as a ground of different ideological conceptions and grotesque situations
In September 2000 a meeting of two global financial institutions - the International Monetary Fund (managing international finances - ensuring free trade) and the World Bank (fighting poverty through loans) - took place in the middle of Europe, in Prague. At the same time people were gathering to prepare demonstrations expressing their disagreement with the existence of these two institutions. Over the course of 14 days we documented these events with one film camera and one digital camera.
