The Night of the Agama
Tomáš Janáček

Prague, a bus station on a winter night. Radka, together with her little daughter, a suitcase on wheels and a gym bag, gets off a bus. Down the streets of the same city, Ludek is taking his time going home, aware that nobody is waiting for him there. For a couple of hours before dawn, what was meant to be a fateful connection with one purpose only might resemble a family. The Night of the Agama is about an encounter of people who rely on others' help, yet they must primarily help themselves.

Anna is a young artist, studying UMPRUM in Prague. She has one little problem with her work - she cannot tell even one word about it. It is not because she is a foreigner in Czechia. She cannot speak about her ideas in any language, cannot express herself by words. Her strange art is the only way of communication, where she feels herself comfortable, but she is not able to defend her ideas, so she feels unconfident about it. Anna must tell something about it. Or not? May be non-verbal way of communication in art is enough? Or she will have to explain her works?

Melanya Hamasyan

Behind the Curtain is a poetic drama about a theater stage manager, Eva, who has recently lost her son yet needs to go about her daily work in the theater. Matěj, a novice actor in the theater group, becomes another obstacle to her work, as he is overcome by stage fright and the inability to distinguish between reality and surreality – between himself and the role his is playing, between backstage and stage. At first, Eva empathizes with the troubled actor, seeing in him a reminiscence of her lost son and as a result acts with maternal compassion. However, Matěj unravels further and refuses to follow her instructions as well as the forceful guidance of a chorus of fellow actors.
