JIRI VOLEK

Jiri Volek was born in Kolin, Czech republic, right next to the grocery store from Forman’s Black Peter. He studied architecture and graphic design in Prague and later on he started his film studies at FAMU with Vera Chytilova as his mentor. In 2010 he shot the movie “Bastards” about growing aggression among teenagers and the thin line between foolish pranks of boredom and pathological violence.

In 2012 he made his movie “Open Call” that was nominated for the Best Student Film at Cesky lev national film awards. This movie is a bitter sweet summer story about two girlfriends stranded in a carousel of questionable castings for young girl models. Jiri is also an author of a very successful chapter “Flag Bearers” in the project “Tribes 0” where he reveals the onset of the british hooligan “illness” during 1970’s. He also shot a television adaptation of this chapter for Czech television.

With his currently finished movie “The End” he won Czech television’s competition “The Accelerator“ selecting the most ambitious scripts from all Czech film schools for future co-production.

Kajal (Paakhi A Tyrewala) India                                                                                   20 min. 2017

Like all elements, humans have a saturation point. What happens when a woman – constantly bullied by her boss, harassed by strangers and abused by her husband – finds an abandoned package one night?
A package that holds an answer to all her demons. A package that triggers an inner change in her the moment that she lays eyes on it.
Kohl captures a turning point in the life of a woman, in a world claimed by men.
