ROOTS IN EGO / Roots in Ego

Synopsis

A short, independent movie, set in one of the Prague’s most iconic suburbs – Žižkov. The film describes one day in the lives of two sisters and their friends, recounts about drug addiction and electronic music. Teamed up with a DJ, we will provide you with a unique movie night/party experience you will not forget.

Žižkov may seem a gray neighbourhood at first, but the Television Tower in its center is like a rocket that will catapult you right into space. This is exactly the kind of trip our
group of friends likes to take; they never lack the fuel, the appetite or the well-tuned rhythm in their hearts. Each of them is in a different life situation, but they have one thing in common: they consciously live lives that reflect an unyielding desire to never become docile servants of the ‘system’.

Their relationships become more entangled and through a bizarre series of events, everything heads towards a brief enlightenment, but also to a cruel climax.

The film is a playful follow-up of British films about the dancing generation. It draws the viewers into a swirl of parties, drugs and feelings of infinite freedom as well as the loss of innocence, loneliness and paranoia. Good and evil appear as mere concepts that acquire substance through the small everyday deeds.

DJ BBoss will play after the movie finishes that you have time to digest its message and have fun and simply enjoy the occasion. So, this party is exactly what you’re after on Saturday night.
