The Villa? Marek Ther 2010, video, 12 min

The Villa? presents a spectacular but this time exceptionally impressive and intimate sketch with a strong sexual and existential subtext. In terms of subject matter, The Villa? reflects some of Ther’s earlier work exploring questions of gender (a dominant theme for Ther) and an equally frequent subject in his work: the interwar and postwar period in the Sudetenland, which forms the aesthetic and semantic backdrop for many of his films.
