Audiovisual hypnotic meditation on the symbol of the "black sun" as depicted in prehistoric and ancient spiritual traditions, runic scriptures, alchemy, psychoanalysis, occultism, and politics. In the Euro-Atlantic context, this symbol is as controversial as the swastika. However, the real tradition of this symbol is several thousand years old and at the same time it is firmly connected with the history of our capital city Prague. The film approaches this symbol as a broader concept and tries to emphasize and examine its psychological and mythological side. As one of the most frequently depicted symbols in human cultures across all continents, the black sun is a rich and significant source of inspiration and deep thought.
