Fred Film Radio is media partner of the European Film Promotion (EFP) Future Frames, which presents ten outstanding young directors with their latest work at the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival. Director Damián Vondrásek, from the Czech Republic, was among those selected for this year’s edition and presented his film Imprisoned at the 52nd Karlovy Vary International Film Festival. In this film, Vondrásek talks to us about the meaning of “imprisonment” as a concept of his movie, the effects of the choice of using a naturalistic style – he mentions, for instance, that he prefers minimalistic acting – in his film, refers to some of his creative influences, his experience of being part of the 2017 Future Frames at Karlovy Vary, and more.

Imprisoned: an offer of a job as a prison educator could help unemployed teacher Jakub resolve a difficult family situation. His father-in-law exacerbates his already low self-confidence, and the man most certainly imagined a different kind of son-in-law. The claustrophobic feelings Jakub experiences at the prison, however, lead him to a single question: Does he want to control others the rest of his life or be controlled by them?
