I WAS TRYING TO KICK YOU OUT OF HERE (CZECH REPUBLIC)

Director: Eulalie Polne, Tomáš Kotas | Producer: Berta Holoubkobá |
Star: Jiří Procházka, Tereza Jonášová |
Year: 2018 | Length: 6 min | Experimental |

“I was trying to kick you out of here” is a digital romance taking place on a frontier between two worlds, about the inextinguishable effort to cross that frontier, the world behind the red line, the world of immortal sun. The meeting, the moment when she met him and he met her, was love at first sight, waiting for the sun to come up again, a process of placing their bodies into the infinity. As the sun slowly rose higher and higher, they both felt that the frontier dividing their worlds was becoming more and more defined and that there was no way back. All is inevitable and there is nothing to do but await the restoration. The frontier is a shining red line, drawn from one end of the surface to the other. It was love at first sight. The distance between them became greater and greater. The digitalization brought slight nausea but all would soon be well. The nausea slowly began to subside. The smell of the sea overwhelmed their senses. The frontier between them faded in the light of the rising sun.

When Eva goes to the lake with her older brother and his friends, she finds herself under her body’s control, for which she is still ashamed of at her age.
