Cesta zpět po spálených mostech, Czech Republic, 2010, 26 min, Digi Beta, DV, DVD, HD, Philosophy, Portrait, Religion
A portrait of two people who have decided to live outside the bustle of civilisation and spent time in communities of nuns and monks. The first is Katka, who remembers the environment in the community of the Nuns of Bethlehem in the Savoy Alps. Having entered in 2001, attracted by the silence and opportunity to concentrate, in the end she left voluntarily. The film's second soulful protagonist is Miroslav, who talks about life among the Cistercians, the meaning of celibacy and the reasons why he left the ascetic order. This mediation on non-conformist existences and everyday miracles culminates in a surprising ending.
