Memories of Childhood
The film Memories of Childhood is an observational reality documentary filmed in the time span of six months. As a small child, the film protagonist Filip Zahradil was sexually abused and mistreated by his mother. Therefore he brought a sexual trauma and a lack of feeling to his adulthood. "I'm not able to express my love for women. I'm not sensitive enough", says Zahradil. As soon as his relationship problems appeared, he started realizing that his troublesome childhood experience is to blame. He realized that it was his mother who ruined his life and that it is because of her that he will never be a normal loving man. So one day, seized by an alcoholic fit, he decided to settle the score. He shot her. He was sentenced for twenty years for murder, however, due to good behaviour and a number of mitigating circumstances he was released in the middle of his sentence. The film crew meets him the moment he is leaving the prison. He is telling his childhood memories to be later reconstructed with the help of actors. Besides, we also follow his current life and his attempts to become part of the society.
The aim of the documentary is to capture the behaviour, slang and ideas in a complex reflection of life of the generation born after 1992. On one hand, they can't live without Facebook and their mobile phones, spending a major part of their lives online, chatting, blogging, watching YouTube and porn. On the other hand, they are similar to the older generation as well. It is this similarity that the film will be based on. It will provide an image of a generation that is neither good nor bad but different, hoping to contribute to a deeper understanding between the two generations.
