A World Through Glasses
How good do you know your own country and its people? Who and what hides in remote regions or in the hustle and bustle of the metropolis. «A World through glasses», an innovative and personal travel report in a series of episodes, takes you across various regions and cities in your own country. «Hello, I'm Michael and I am a documentary film producer. There is a little camera in my glasses and a microphone in my jacket.» This could be one possible greeting of the host, meeting his surprised opponent. «It is told in your village, that you have quite an interesting and extraordinary hobby. Is that true? Do you have time to show me, what it is all about?» Before the answer is even made we are already standing in the door of our respondent and the next moment our camera in the glasses makes us part of a new story, where everything is possible: sometimes sad, sometimes weird, sometimes funny or simply ordinary. Alongside Neo-farmer and professional butterfly catchers, street sweeper turn out to be professional ex-soccer players, former box-champions turn into world changers and house builders become globetrotters. A classic travel report series with experimental and innovative camera material «A World through glasses» is a perfect mix of documentary and road movie and gives a great encouraging insight into a sometimes curious everyday life. Go ahead and explore your country and its people!
