The film essay brings the audience right into the heart of a historical battle re-enactment. The hundreds of soldiers fighting in historical costumes imitate organized violence; the film oscillates between a game, a theatre play, a Spartakiad and Land art. The multiplied projections evoke war turmoil, further enhanced by quotes from Karel Čapek’s anti-war drama The Mother.

Martin Ježek (1976) is one of the most distinctive representatives of Czech experimental film.  He has graduated from production and film editing at FAMU.  Since 1999, when the FOMA company started producing 8mm films again, he has been creating short structural films as well.
