A political documentary on black holes within the Slovak judiciary system and on the condition of law enforceability in Slovakia. Peeking behind the gown of Slovak courts of law, this cinematic essay examines the motives of power that has withdrawn to seclusion but still prefers to be addressed as “justice”.
Documentarist Zuzana Piussi (born 1971 in Bratislava) completed her studies at the VŠMU Faculty of Film and Television in 2007 with a graduation film Stoka: The Epilogue. Even before that, she received international acclaim for her documentary Výmet, which won Grand Prix at the Beirut IFF in 2003. In 2004 she shot Godless Country for Slovak Television, followed a year later by documentary feature Angels Cry that was presented at the Bratislava IFF, Gay Festival in New York or the Wiesbaden IFF. In 2008 she finished her film Koliba on the condition of Slovak cinematography, followed in 2009 by Hrdina našich čias, a film dedicated to Pavol Branko.
