Andrej Kolenčík / Slovakia / 2012 / 19 min.
Mr Slovák is a welder. He has a wife, a teenage son, a car and a hobby but his greatest passion is theatre. Since childhood he has wanted to be an actor; now his dream has come true. He became a member of an amateur theatre group and is performing in Plan 9 from Outer Space. The troupe has already toured several Slovak towns and Mr Slovák relishes the applause at every performance. Although his professional life has been a failure – he has lost his job eight times – the theatre abundantly fulfils his desire for self-realisation. This short film by Slovak director Andrej Kolenčík shows how important it is to seek fulfilment outside of work and family.
