Vidíš, Praha!

Barbora Šimková

Karolíny Světlé 18, Prague,

A personal documentary about the (im)possibility of living in the center of Prague. The film draws on my experience with an eviction notice ordering me and my five-year-old son to leave the one-room apartment at Prague‘s Old Town which is owned by the Prague City Hall and has been occupied by my grandfather since the 1980s. Our story illustrates the impact mass and non-regulated tourism and Prague City Hall’s housing policy have on the lives of the local citizens which are often far away from dignity. The film was made at the My Street Films 2018 workshop.
