Every Single Minute

Každá minuta života

Just about everyone has an opinion on what constitutes the right way to bring up children. This film, which tracks a rigorous effort to create a perfect young man, is a surprisingly provocative contribution to the debate.

The complex child-rearing method called “Kamevéda” should make Miško into a perfect man. The aim is to use every second of his childhood to develop all his talents. His young, loving parents are determined to devote all their energy to this task. But are they starting their son on the path to happiness and success, or will he burn out? The response to the film so far has revealed how heated the topic is. Documentarist Erika Hníková tries to take a look at the life of a Slovak family objectively and from a distance, which makes the resulting film all the more valuable. The film does not offer any unambiguous answers, forcing us to ask questions about our own biases as well as the broader social context.
