All for the Good of the World and Nošovice!

Czech Republic 2010 dir. Vit Klusák 52 min

  • Director: Vit Klusák
  • D.O.P.: Jakub Halousek
  • Editing: Janka Vlcková
  • Producer: Vít Klusák, Filip Remunda, Irena Taskovsk

An original portrayal of a small Czech village where – as the locals put it – an UFO has landed in the form of a kilometre-long silverish factory: a Korean Hyundai automobile plant. The village, hitherto famous mostly for its sauerkraut and the “Radegast” beer now is turned into an industrial zone – the largest greenfield investment project in the Czech Republic’s history. Nonetheless, for a long time many farmers resist selling the land upon which the factory is now standing. Eventually, they all succumb under the pressure from the neighbours. The filmmakers returned to Nošovice two years after the dramatic property buyouts, at the time when the factory has just started churning out cheap cars. Combining the perspectives of seven characters, they have composed a portrayal of a place suddenly changed beyond recognition that is playful and chilling at the same time – an absurd about a field that yields cars.
