Crazy Against the Nation

Slovakia | 2018 | documentary | 78 min. Somewhere in Europe

Peter Kalmus, a colourful bird from Slovakia, takes you on a journey around his country. It will be political, historical and a bit controversial. This artist and performer is not afraid of confrontation, enters boldly into public space, organizes happenings, is active in public life, fights with the remnants of communism and the manifestations of extreme nationalism. He also admits his own mistakes and a few weaknesses. The film is an excellent opportunity to check your knowledge about Poland’s closest neighbour, a country which is not-well known to many Poles.
