Czech and Slovak Docs at Floating Cinema: Solar Eclipse

Two Czech engineers, Milan and Tomáš, are sent on a mission to restore a solar electric system in a remote village in Zambia. It had been installed several years earlier as part of an international aid project but has since fallen into disrepair. They discover a number of causes, ranging from poor maintenance to theft and corruption. Basically an observational documentary, Martin Mareček’s film analyses the course of events with an ironic perspective that raises uncomfortable issues around the clash of cultures. Winner of the Czech critics’ prize, Solar Eclipse is a collaboration between Mareček and the production team of Vít Klusák and Filip Remunda (Czech Dream / Český sen).
