An Application for Asylum in the Czech Republic on Ecological Grounds
Žádost o azyl z ekologických důvodů, Czech Republic, 2010, 20 min, Beta SP, HD, Environmental, Human Rights, Reportage
“My name is Brian Kulkaer Larsen, I am forty three years old, I come from Copenhagen and I am applying for asylum in the Czech Republic for ecological reasons." Filmed in Denmark, this film demonstrates two of the country's cutting-edge ecological projects while poking gentle fun at the “dinosaur” mentality of high carbon emission and energy generation. Kulkaer Larsen is a figure, that is shunned by Danish society. He has a dream of freedom to rival the first pilgrim fathers, however, until he visits the Czech Republic he has nowhere to realise it. This "real-life" investigation explores the environmental technology and Kulkaer and his shovel's struggle for dirty justice in a spotless world.
