This documentary mosaic presents a reconstruction of the Jihlava International Documentary Film Festival. The festival guests encounter the everyday atmosphere of a town that each year becomes the centre of a celebration of film; they become part of the stylized scenes, enter into the stories that begin to evolve, and engage in a dialogue, confirming that the relationship between the filmmaker, the work, and the viewer is never culminated. The film does not tell the history of the festival or relate its purpose, but it is an opportunity for an encounter between a group of five former jurors who come from Jihlava and the surrounding area and documentary filmmakers. The film’s playful concept is augmented by the choice of themes and how they are realized through events that transform the entire town into a living cinema.
