One World Echoes: Stone Games

In a small town near the German border of Czech Republic, Sudeten Germans were tortured and killed during their illegal mass expulsion at the end of World War II. Do they deserve a monument or not? Stone Games shows just how far this is from an academic question.

In response to the stone monument, a group of local inhabitants unleashes a hate-filled ritual dance of national fervour and moral outrage. Part Clochemerle, part The Sorrow and the Pity - and with a comic touch - Gebert reminds us how Europe’s buried history never quite goes away.

Jan Gebert / 2012,  Czech Republic / 56'
