The aim of Normal is to take the viewer beyond the preconceived ideas associated with these disorders through an openly subjective and personal narrative.These encounters are an opportunity to question the notion of normality in our society. In a carefully crafted aesthetic, this documentary offers an intimate view of pathologies on a spectrum that is often misunderstood.

Ukrajina – Co se deˇje a jak se s tím vyrovnat
(Ukraine – What Is Happening and How to Deal With It)

When the warin Ukraine began, children's questions began to proliferate. Our viewers wrote that they did not understand the situation, that they did not understand what was happening, that they were afraid that the war would come to the Czech Republic. That is why we immediately launched an informative page with videos, pictures and a form through which children can write to us.Every question is answered, and in the first two weeks we received over 1000 questions. The children's questions were then used as the basis for making further informative videos, where we asked their questions to experts in various fields.

Das ist also Kunst (So This Is Art)

Since April 11, 2022, So This is Art has been providing clear background knowledge and also establishing connections between works from different epochs and current socio-political questions from the users' environment. Were self-portraits the first selfies? To what extent do paintings from past centuries provide important clues for today's climate research? What ideals of beauty were popular in the 16th century? And what role do people of color play in art history? The focus of the channel is not elitist expertise, but insights, surprising perspectives and impulses to be exchanged within the community. So This is Art wants to encourage people between 25 and 34, for whom the hurdle to go to a museum or to deal with art has been too high,to deal with classics of art and to exchange ideas with others.

What's Happening in Myanmar?

As the military tightened their control to prevent videos and photos from spreading via social media, we launched the What's Happening in Myanmar? website, which asks people to send information. We decided that, rather than allow such precious acts of censorship to be buried among the masses of other online material, we would record those that were clearly not fake (in other words, those for which we could verify the photographer and the time and place of filming).

Mammorna – I våldets skugga
(The Mothers – In the Shadow of Violence)

In the stigmatised outskirts of Stockholm, suburbs faced with decades of de-investment and segregation, live the mothers who outlived their murdered children. Society has since long ago stopped caring for its citizens living here. Eleni, Maritha, Katri, Carolina, Sussie and Sirra talk to us about the bottomless grief and finding the means to keep on living – and fighting for a society where children do not become casualties in the meaningless gang violence. It's a modern tragedy taking place, that needs to be told and addressed. But it's also a story about the children of the concrete high-rises, about crime and marginalised mothers' call for help. About human life value. Everyone's children are everyone's children, right?
