Černobyl is a post-apocalyptic vision of a famous love story by this progressive duo of the Czech alternative music scene. Those who were discovering the world of computer games during the 1990s will find the music video familiar. The author has made interesting use of the dungeons in which the Prince of Persia looked for the princess in order to save her.
It can be safely said that Jaromír Plachý is a specialist in making music videos for DVA. After his successful music videos for Nunovó tango (2009) and Mulatu (2014), he made an animated music video for Vespering. The film depicting a little boy’s dream once again shows the director’s artistic symbiosis of the grotesque with a slight horror-like deformity and the musical style of the popular Czech duo.
This visually minimalistic short film in the best tradition of Estonian humour deals with the hardships of life in a corner where two angles meet. Existence seems very hard here – laws of perspective and gravity play strange games so the whole image becomes geometrically relative and the characters lose their ground.
Little Pete gets a camera as a birthday gift - and with it an unexpected visit from crazy aunties who turn the apartment upside down, eat his birthday cake, let his grandpa stick to a carnivorous flytrap and bring to life the hungry monsters hidden in the fridge. Was it real or just Pete's fancy? It's hard to tell. Only the Crazy Horror Aunties mail order service knows the answer. Half nonsense, half horror: a whirlwind of strange situations and little catastrophes in an unusual fusion of poetry with animation.
