I LOVE MY BORING LIFE
Mam rada nudny zivot, Rep. Ceha, 2009, 26 min
Regie: Jan Gogola
VO ceha / Subtitrari in engleza

Timp de cinci ani Alena Nemcova a notat in jurnalul ei activitati zilnice, vise, retete, ganduri specifice varstei. Filmul prezinta viata pe care Alena o traieste in casa ei, o secventa a lumii si in acelasi timp un spatiu pentru diferite evenimente. La fel ca jurnalul si viata ei, filmul reuneste in acelasi timp povesti amuzante si serioase, personale si sociale, de zi cu zi sau atemporale. O viata plictisitoare, dar nu monotona.
Intentia filmului este de a arata ca limitele impuse de oameni sunt de fapt determinate de limitele propriei tale perceptii.

I LOVE MY BORING LIFE
The documentary traces the diary of a grandmother from the Prague neighbourhood of Zbraslav as a diary of eternity.
Using informal language, Alena Nemcova from Zbraslav has been writing down weather forecasts, dreams, morning exercises, recipes, regular house bustle, global events as well as notes concerning relationships, religion and the general spirit of the age – matters of a private, family, social, real and also surreal nature. The film captures the life in her house, as a place that could represent a slice of the world and merge various events and connections, both of a daily and timeless nature. It points out that banality can indeed be part of our perception but not of the world itself. The device is just a change of banality to singularity.

Jan Gogola born in 1971, is working as director, script editor and lecturer at FAMU (Film and TV school of Academy of Performing Arts) in Prague; formerly a commissioning editor for Czech TV, he resumed his filmmaking career last year. He graduated from the Faculty of Journalism, Charles University and from the Department of Documentary Films at FAMU. As a script editor Gogola has been involved in the making of numerous documentaries, e.g., Czech Dream (dir. Filip Remuda, Vit Klusak); 66 Seasons (dir. Peter Kerekes); Cooking History (dir. Peter Kerekes); Lost Holiday (dir. Lucie Kralova); Private Century (dir. Jan Sikl), and others.
