Auto*mat (2009) Online

Traffic in contemporary Prague. Everyday accidents, jams, unbreathable air, police hopelessly punishing wrong parking. A group of the activist (organising annual bicycle march on the highway passing through the center of the city) trying to push council (and mayor) to set on the path of more human-friendly metropolis. In the meanwhile providing some views of the car culture: Tyre-burning feasts, right-wing MPs advising to immunize children by exposing them to air pollutants, megalomaniac traffic construction versus inability to mark simple cyclist routes, priest consecrating new tunnel, the car-seller admitting that this whole fetishism is sick and probably will bring soon end to us, the death of a member of an initiative... And moreover - wider discussion about automatic thinking patterns, the idea of the city and fight for the space, imbalance of power between driver and pedestrian. {locallinks-homepage}
