Through the Viewfinder of AK 47

According to American Photo Magazine, Antonín Kratochvíl is one of the 100 world's most important photographers. He payed for success and glory not only by hard work in places everybody want to leave. He had left home his firstborn son and has only seen him twenty years after emigrating. The different lives on opposite sides of the iron curtain divides them till this day. They look and talk the same, but the difference is remarkable between Antonín, the globetrotter and his son Michael who prefers to work home in his atelier.
Their mutual efforts to converge are the film's main storyline. Many of an unsaid issue could be revealed as they travel together to the biggest refugee camp in Jordan. Family and colleagues will support the testimony about a father and a son, divided by history.

My Father Antonín Kratochvíl

Three generations of photographers marked by totalitarian regimes. Through the youngest Michael, we follow the fates of the Krathochvíl clan, focusing particularly on the most famous of them – Antonín. At 18, Antonín emigrated from Czechoslovakia, where his father Jaroslav spent a life marked by the communist terror. Antonín left a newborn son behind. In America, he tasted fame and became a sought-out war photographer. He met his son for the first time after 20 years. Antonín wants to make up for the guilt of abandoning a small child, Michael attempts to process reuniting with father.

Investigators

Investigators want to look at the phenomena and controversial topics that are spread in our society, but have no scientific background – e.g., some types of alternative medicine or the popular eso-themes such as telepathy, out-of-body experience, bioresonance, telepathy or clairvoyance.

Investigators try to explore each topic - sometimes amusingly, but clearly and seriously in general. Other protagonists - mainly supporters of one side or another (sceptics vs. advocates) are there (not) to help them. The aim of the project is to raise public awareness. However, the authors do not want to force their own opinion upon the audience - their goal is to present facts, so that the spectator is able to create his own opinion.

We currently witness an increasing blending of esotericism and science, which makes room for imposters and greedy people. The documentary series therefore aims at objective investigation of the phenomena on the frontier of knowledge of the contemporary science so as to “separate the wheat from the chaff”. The main goal is not to unequivocally prove or refute the phenomena (the film is not a scientific study) but to describe them from a rational point of view. Attention is thus drawn to the facts. All the topics have a common element: their advocates are presenting them as clear, real and existing, even though they have never been scientifically proven.

The Taste of Celibacy

Slovak priest Peter Lucian Baláž (39) decided to write a book advocating the idea of consecrating married men. He asked his friend from the seminary – priest Michal Lajcha (35) who was about to leave the clergy because he had been in a long-term relationship and wanted to get married. He invited him to be a co-author of a book, and its first version was published only under Lajcha's name.
Anyway, sensing the danger of a recourse, he left his diocese and went to serve as a chaplain in prison. While Mr. Lajcha was in a really bad situation as his girlfriend had left him in the meantime and he found himself without a job, Mr. Baláž stayed in prison where he was shifted to the position of a guard. Mr. Baláž decided to go on with his mission.
In the meantime, the Amazon synod takes place in Vatican – its major topic is the consecration of married men. In the final report, the Pope gets a recommendation that he should allow the consecration of married men in Amazonia due to the actual lack of priests there. Mr. Baláž starts his investigation to find out who in Europe shares his opinions.
