Matchmaking Mayor


A situational documentary film about a village mayor trying to match local people in their thirties who are still single. Slowly but surely, the Slovak village Zemplínské Hámre is dying out. Its mayor, a retired general, doesn't want to give up though. Fighting the thirty-year-olds' loneliness, he has used various means such as offering a financial reward for each newborn child or encouraging people to make children in the local public address system. None of it has worked. However, the mayor has a new plan. He decides to organize a dating party for singles from all the neighbouring villages. Will the protagonists finally find their partners? In its theme and approach, the film represents a continuation of Erika Hníková's previous successful films "The Beauty Exchange" and "I Guess We'll Meet at the Eurocamp". The film was awarded in Berlinale IFF 2011.
