Caught in the Net
A new documentary by Barbora Chalupová and Vít Klusák on what can happen to young girls when left at the mercy of the uncontrollable virtual world.
Everyone knows something like this is happening. But this is the only experiment to fully demonstrate what excessive openness on the internet means. The filmmaking couple hired youthful-looking (but over 18) actresses to pretend to be prepubescent girls and communicate with strangers who approached them based on their fake accounts. They attracted dozens of men in the first ten days, then hundreds, and finally thousands. The numbers of those looking for sexual satisfaction from the interactions are shocking. Most of the middle-aged men stopped at nothing to lure the supposed children into sending them photos or videos. And after weeks of online communication, there was even a personal meeting, held under the watchful eye of hidden bodyguards. What are sexual predators capable of?

The human species is starting to realise its transience and human identity is in crisis. The film tries to reflect this feeling forming a nonanthropomorphic view of the landscape and nature. An audio-visual requiem for homo sapiens.

The Czechs Are Excellent Mushroom Pickers
HHow would an extra-terrestrial intelligence view homo sapiens and the way the species plods along? The way we humans treat our planet? Do Czechs differ in how they care for nature?

The current development of domestic humanoid robots ever more convincingly meets our need to attribute human traits to advanced machines. At the same time, however, we know that they are only imitating us, because they are programmed.
Artificial intelligence is increasingly transforming the nature of the world. The testimonies of the qualified experts show how wide the scale of these changes is and how they affect the fate of individuals and of humankind.
Social media has become a new platform for showbusiness. Fans have their stars, stars have their managers – and managers hold the keys to their dreams coming true. One young person striving for this dream is 16-year-old Austyn.
