Czech and Slovak Docs at Floating Cinema: Mythmaking

Bringing people together through what divides them – this is how internationally known Czech artist Kateřina Šedá describes two projects aimed at bringing together the inhabitants of two villages. For one, she creates a new holiday; for the other, a new mascot. Jan Gogola documents the creative process while trying to influence it as little as possible. Documentary film is perhaps the best way to capture Šedá’s “work” as it allows, the viewer to find themselves inside her art – her projects are designed to have only participants, not viewers.

Kateřina Šedá, a figure of international renown, enters with her social and art projects the life of her native Brno-Líšeň and the neighbouring Bedřichovice village. A montage of two parallel and mutually intertwined concepts of Kateřina Šedá focuses on her project from Morning till Night commissioned by Tate Modern. This project sent 80 inhabitants of Bedřichovice village to London, where they spent their Saturday, September 3rd 2011 the same way as they would have spent it back home.
