SAVING ONE WHO WAS DEAD (CZECH REPUBLIC) BY VACLAV KADRNKA
After a serious stroke, the Father goes into a coma. The Son and the Mother are suddenly confronted by a motionless body. The person they love is somewhere far away and nobody knows whether he will ever return. The doctors do not give them much hope. The Son and the Mother concentrate all their strength and start to act. They meekly accept the diagnosis but resist the verdict. They spend hours by the Father´s motionless body looking for the right words to say to him. First, they address the Father´s body, but soon they realize they must direct their words into a much greater distance. The saving of the Father and themselves requires them to overcome fear together and accept resurrection. Running time: 01:30:00
Awards and selections: International Film Festival of India.
