5 October

Country: Slovakia, Czech Republic
Year: 2016
Duration: 50'
Direction: Martin Kollar


Facing a life or death operation, a man who don't speaks to us on screen and who all we know about him is that he is called Ján, flees away and escapes with the only companion of his bicycle. His destination: inland Slovakia, where he lives surrounded by animals and where he becomes a hermit trying to assimilate what could be his final days. His other destination: his inner self, is presented to us through the pages of a fatal diary that advances like a countdown, like the lump on his neck, with a date marked in red: 5th October, the day of the operation. Ján writes down ingenious memories, photographs and experiences that we witness in silence, in mystical respiration with nature, unknowingly featuring an optimistic, wordless parable and the big question is what will he note down on what has been marked as his final day.
