Bells of Happiness
Zvonky šťastia, Slovak Republic, 2012, 62 min, DCP, Digi Beta, DVD, Creative, Entertainment, Music, Social Issues
Mariena and Roman are cousins. They share one passion which has little to do with their everyday life - admiration of singer stars Karel Gott and Dara Rolins. They collect and exchange newspaper clips from tabloids, they rehearse songs from the repertoire of their idols and borrow their identities, although they switch gender roles. One day they decide to sing their favorite hit “Zvonky šťastia“ and send it to Karel and Dara with their own video on a DVD. In this project they are accompanied by filmmakers Marek Šulík and Jana Bučka. Thus arises a mutual play in which the roles of protagonists and film-makers are exchanged, swapping the worlds of media stars and simple people from socially weaker classes.
