Czech Republic, 2005, 87 min, color

This funny and provocative analysis of the world of contemporary media manipulation is based on a hoax perpetrated by two film students on an unsuspecting public. Impressed by the escalation in the growth of hypermarkets in the Czech Republic, they organise an advertising programme for a non-existent one. Their final confrontation with the deluded public, who stampede towards the false front that disguises only an open field, is both instructive and surprising.

Vit Klusak (1980) studied photography and is now completing his studies in documentary film at Pragues FAMU film school. He has worked as a cameraman with Vit Janecek and Martin Marecek. He worked with Filip Remunda (1973) on the film A.B.C.D.T.O.P.O.L. Remunda studied electro-technology. He made his first film with an 8-mm camera while travelling through India and Iran. In 1997 he enrolled in documentary film studies at FAMU. As part of his coursework he participated in exchange programmes at the Sam Spiegel Film and Television School in Jerusalem and the Zellig Film School in Bolzano. He attracted attention with his short film Village B., which won awards in 2002 at the IFF in Karlovy Vary. He is a co-founder of the Institute of Documentary Film.
