Ptáčata aneb Nejsme žádná béčka, Czech Republic, 2010, 26 min, Docu Series, Longitudinal, Social Issues
Sixteen eight-year-old classmates mostly of Roma descent are the protagonists of Fledglings, a 16-part docu-soap in which the children were given cameras and, for a period of one year, captured the world and events around them. Shot from September 2009 to August 2010, Fledglings is the first Czech docu-soap project, with a few elements of reality show. In more than 500 hours of footage, the children at times find themselves in situations they would not otherwise be exposed to but finding the right solution and approach is always entirely up to them.
