Elsewhere

inde-2

Inde, r. Juraj Nvota, Marian Urban, SK/CZ, 2018; 75 min.; sk, fr / sk tit,

The life and times of a unique author and pilgrim, Alexander Mlynárčik, in action – in his exceptional manifestations, activities, tricks, but also the contradictions of the era in which he lived. A story of almost a full century which formed the modern identity, culture and fundamental values of Slovakia – not only as a part of Czecho-Slovakia, but also as an independent state, but mostly as a part of the broader, marginally European, community to which our protagonist, with his work and life, integrally belongs.

Actually, he is a local, Slovak, Pussy Riot.
