Lilia returns home to her family and fellow soldiers after spending months held captive as a prisoner of war. As an aerial reconnaissance expert, she was always on the lookout from the drones that she controlled from the sky. As a civil and a wife, she struggles to look forward to the future. The pain and trauma from her time in captivity continue to surface in dreamlike ways, as something is inside her reminding of what she’s trying to move on from.  Maksym Nakonechnyi’s debut film is a harsh and surreal tale about a victim who simply refuses to be identified as one.

Terminally ill Janette wants to die with dignity, which she finds impossible in the UK where she lives. Therefore she decides for an assisted suicide.

An autobiographic film by a legendary Czech New Wave director Jan Němec based on his biography “Nepodávej ruku číšníkovi”. "Wolf, a savage, tricky and uncotrollable creature. Wolf insheep's clothing and other way around. You'll see the crime scenes, the authentic dialogues, author's comment, archive materials both genuine and fake. Everything in the film had really happened. Or maybe it might be little blown up."

Animated short based on an urban legend from the era of Nazi occupation of Czechoslovakia during the WW II. The phantom avenger with spring-heeled shoes jumps above the streets of Prague and fights the occupants. He has to stop the Nazis from waking up the Golem - a dreadful artificial being from The Old Jewish Town. Czech variation on classic superheroes. Apart from them it wasn’t created by the fantasy of comic writers. This one was created directly from the folk tales.

Feature documentary film The Czech Way tells a story of Czechoslovak economic transformation of the 90s. This transformation took place in the period, when the Czech and Slovak nationhood were established, so it was presented as the key to the transformation of totalitarian society into a democratic one, and on the other side, publicly understood mainly as a process of wealth redistribution from the stay to the people. The consequences of the very execution and rhetorics accompanying such sudden and large transfers of property still have interminable importance.

Documentary series called One Blood tells stories of young people in countries we know mostly from pictures full of suffering, poverty and terrorism. It documents lives of people who attempt to fulfil their dreams through sport and art despite their uneasy conditions in the country. They belong among the handful of those who stand against the society which denies or even bans their way of life. Their passion might be considered naive or stunning in Europe, nevertheless it shows a new generation of people who aim to change the future of these failed countries.
