Opening Gala Screening: Alois Nebel

Summer 1989. Alois Nebel works as a stationmaster in a small village in the Jeseník mountains, close to the Polish border. Preferring old timetables to people, Nebel lives through his memories, haunted by the violent post-war expulsion of the Germans and getting lost in the mists of time. An encounter with a mysterious mute man and kind Květa helps him to connect the past with the present and find middle-aged love. Introduced by artist and musician Jaromír 99.


Based on the graphic novel trilogy by Jaroslav Rudiš and Jaromír 99 this is a superbly atmospheric debut using rotoscope animation and evocative soundtrack to portray the fractured psychology of a man and his country.
