Program includes…

Poisoned Well

Radek Ševčík • Slovakia • Czech, Slovak • 14 min

October 12, 2022 – a terrorist attack in Bratislava – the death of innocent LGBTI+ people – no political response. Film-requiem discusses the deteriorating state of society after the attack, as well as the intimate feelings of LGBTI+ people, including the author himself. Suppressed emotions cannot be filtered even on a self-defense course, where the participants do not belong, where they are forced to be because of their fear. A rotten well poisons society’s opinions, which do not improve even after the attack. Do people really need to live in fear? Content Warning: Hate Crime, Homicide, Violence, Guns, Homophobia
