VŠECHNO BUDE / Winter Flies
Did you know you can bring a fly back from the verge of drowning by covering it in warming, drying cigarette ash? Fifteen-year-old Mára (Tomáš Mrvík) does - it’s a bit of useless lore he picked up from his grandfather. He demonstrates it to the police interrogator who brings him into custody when his quixotic journey in a stolen Audi with fellow runaway Heduš (Jan František Uher) comes to an abrupt halt. Olmo Omerzu never overworks the metaphor, but the Winter Flies that buzz on windowsills throughout his third feature are, like the boys, a nuisance, but there’s something admirable about their tenacity.
Olmo Omerzu was born in Ljubljana in 1984. During his studies at FAMU in Prague he directed several short films and the 40-minute feature "The Second Act". In 2011, Omerzu graduated from FAMU with his first fiction feature "A Night Too Young", a Czech-Slovenian co-production. His second feature "Family Film" (2015) was selected as Best Film of the Year by the Czech film critics.
