TWO ROADS

2019 I documentary I 80 min

A cruel film about the joy of life.

What would you do with your life if you knew that the Grim Reaper were lurking much closer than usual? That's precisely the fate of some of the members of the popular band The Tap Tap, all of whom are disabled (or as they cynically call themselves, crippled). Yet, one thing is clear to them. They live full-on and enjoy every minute. The Tap Tap orchestra proves that when you don't take things too seriously and remain positive, you can face the most difficult obstacles and live the life of the rock stars.

OFF SIDES

2019 I documentary I 75 min

Ten years ago a handful of enthusiasts began playing ice hockey in Morocco. A few years later the Czech embassy learned about their activities and decided to support the traditional Czech sport. This gave rise to the idea of an exchange trip, where the Czech Republic and Morocco would host each other's hockey teams. The invitation was ultimately taken up by a team from the east Bohemian town of Náchod. Following up on FC Roma, documentarists Rozálie Kohoutová and Tomáš Bojar turn once again to the world of sports, employing empathy and their exceptional observational talent to ask universal questions. This time they focus on Czech and Moroccan teenagers, two teams that meet both on and off the ice. While the game has clear rules, the same can’t be said of life in Morocco and the CR.
