This film collection poignantly addresses the pressing issues of our time, from environment and climate to the changing worlds of work.

Along the Morava border river, reliéf Relief takes us through stunning landscapes, raising historical and cultural questions. We Are the Earth delves into a world marred by environmental pollution, yet it portrays a passionate hope for a better future. Primitive Times poses intriguing questions about the origin of work life, and Internet Gaga offers a critical look at the highs and lows of the digital revolution. Velhice traces the impacts of humans on the landscapes we inhabit. Ready provides a unique insight into the lives of the employees of the Greek Parliament, and finally, Aralkum takes viewers on a journey through the desolate landscape of the Aral Desert - a powerful testament to the consequences of human intervention in nature.
