From my roots: part one

This year seemed unlikely at first: from the constraints of our London abode, with no outside space, just a tiny flat where not even windows can be properly opened, the idea of South Bohemia, with its open landscape, became utopia. But as the lockdown rules across Europe started to relax, we took the opportunity to... Continue Reading →

Underwater Ophelia

We know that Ophelia drowned, she took a plunge into a large soup bowl, where wild flowers floated, making her departure from this world rather aesthetically pleasing. She has been washed out elsewhere, into a world I am trying to understand, for reasons I am also trying to understand. But before that, briefly, she appeared... Continue Reading →

Cosmologist’s reflections on my new film

Having recently completed my short film Self-isolation Dinner, I have asked a selected number of interesting thinkers from different disciplines, to write a short response to the film. The idea is to offer different viewpoints on the work, so that the film is not an end in itself, but becomes an inspiration to dialogue, which... Continue Reading →

Shadow Ophelia

It's been a joy drifting along the sprawling pathways of Willesden Junction, experiencing the place through their eyes, as various plants... Continue Reading →

Something about the different time scales being out of synch with each other. The whole experience of walking with Steve yesterday felt... Continue Reading →

Thoughts from behind the screen

Still from a filming of Self-isolation dinner, April 2020 We are living through a moment in time where a physical proximity of others has become a threat. It is not a new idea of course, the idea of contamination has been here always, just as disease and infection have been part of our human history.... Continue Reading →

95th birthday of my Grandmother

Today is the 95th birthday of my grandmother Jiřina Vojáčková. Here she is in 2015 and 1940. Because we can't celebrate together in person, I wanted to mark the occasion by sharing here a short film I made, in 2017, a small tribute to the other 3 generations of women in my family. Here we...

Self-isolation Dinner – script

I wanted to share with you the latest poetic film script, which was inspired by the current lockdown and social distancing rules, while also continuing with my experiments using food and its ingestion as a means of transportation into interior worlds. I am very interested in the creative process and therefore find sharing different steps... Continue Reading →
