CZECH OUT THE MOON (CZECH REPUBLIC)

screenplay and director: Matěj Mráz | cinematography: kamera: Vidu Gunaratna
sound: Barbora Hovorková | editing: Nicole Hálová | producer: FAMU

The story of Czech out the Moon is based on a fictional memory from the director's chil­dhood, in which his dreams come true. It begins on the tenth birthday of a boy who makes a wish to be the first ‘man’ on the Moon. His wish comes true, but the family trip is far from ideal. Nobody thought ‘In space we are not alone.’ The story was inspired by authentic memories and is an allegory of leaving one's homeland.
