Then we are taken to Slavkov (Austerlitz), to see the Battle of Three Emperors re-enacted. Then, together with Napoleon, we follow general Kutuzov to Moscow. The montage weaves the web of the film, while also setting a trap for itself. FAMU, Department of Editing (2nd year - documentary film)
"Ultimum refugium" means “the last refuge” where we can hide when conditions are averse. That is our most fundamental position and a departure point of this project. Secondly and consequently, it is a film-collage structured along documentary footage with radical poetic means. The place: here (Czech Republic), there (Europe) and everywhere (Cosmos). The topic: the end – understood in the whole range of its meanings. On one side, the end is embodied in second thermodynamic law and, on the other side, the end is a tragedy that only mankind sees: the death. The film is an attempt to catch and let live both the eternity and the ephemeral moment in sound and image. It is a testimony combining sublime and poor, sacral and profane, barbarous and volatile. Selection of in-game professions: presidents, trade unions, free-mason, ship builder, ornithologist, old slavonic historian, designer, communist, priest, writer, prostitute, druid, sheep-killer and others.

A film about the ten most important words: kingdom (10), foundations (9), victory (8), gratitude (7), reconciliation (6), grace (5), forgiveness (4), wisdom (3), understanding (2), and a shining crown (1). The film is set in the contemporary reality of the Czech kingdom whose head – Václav Havel – just died. One of the protagonists, Zdeněk Neubauer claims that despite the fact we have reached the end of history and are now temporarily suspended in a state of anticipation, a new beginning may actually never come. This kingdom houses two main protagonists, Boris and Johana. At a time of uncertainty, they would like to create new foundations. Each in their own way, they look for an expression of love. They go through the list of important words that are projected onto the screen of our consciousness. In the end they reach the Sun.
