31 endings / 31 beginnings

from June 25 to July 1

Where does Prague end and where does it begin? Where is its center? What is its structure? Does it have its hidden face plunged in the darkness of the unconscious? Is it possible to take one's life and attach it to the concept of the city? The film 31 Endings / 31 Beginnings is based on movement. Like a child who would like to cross a river without getting wet and thus jumps from a stone to a stone, so the film jerkily, by leaps and bounds, goes on a journey and comes back again.
Watch for free this unique perspective on Prague and its artistic production directed as a film debut by the famous art collective Rafani.
