A Few Words about Disobedience
In the Czech Republic, where democracy is on the decline and a populist movement rules, it may seem as if the issue of climate change has been relegated to the background. The environmental initiative Limity jsme my / The Limits Are Us uses civic disobedience, whereby the participants knowingly break the law, to draw attention to this problem. Disobedience, which traditionally bears a negative connotation, is a path towards emancipation and change.
Tereza Langrová (1994) and Misha Weingartová (1990) chose the topic of Klimakempu and civil disobedience mainly out of curiosity, but during filming, the filmmakers themselves also become activists. A Few Words About Disobedience is their film debut.
2nd place in the My Street Films 2018 competition
