Crazy Against the Nation
2018, Slowakei, 72′
New busts, memorials, street names are popping up across Slovakia. Erected names don’t have to pass critical investigation, involvement with fascist or communist regime is overlooked or what is more, highlighted. This is a situation where our protagonist Peter Kalmus steps in. For some he is an agile activist, performer, artist. For the rest a vandal, lunatic, psychopath or the “fucker” of Slovak nation. His mission is to remind the society of black chapters of common history. He provokes, he plays a jester, he is a bad conscience of apathetic society. He is needed. Actually, he is local, Slovakian, Pussy Riot.
