House in Order

AlenaSramkova (born in June 1929 in Prague) is known as the first lady of Czech architecture or as a pioneer of Czech minimalism. She received awards such as the Medal for Merit from the Czech President or State Award for her contribution in architecture, although some people find her architecture controversial, mostly for its extreme almost provocative simplicity. She has been active since the 1950s and so far her last building, symbolically the home of faculty of architecture of the Prague Technical University, was opened in September 2010. This monumental and in some ways challenging building is the subject of our short film.

Painting John

Two universal themes that define life in the rural American West are solitude and routine. Experienced every day whether on an isolated ranch or in the somewhat faster pace of town, life can be slow and deliberate, but rarely easy.

Painting John captures two very different people, generations apart yet tied together by art, a love for the expansiveness of the West and through their quiet, thoughtful and compelling character.
