Documentary Cinema World tells us story of one of the last village cinemas in Slovakia. Real life stories and memories of local villagers give us a look into history of this cinema and show us its importance. Not only has the viewer an oportunity to be a witness of the cinema"s celebration in the memories of people, but he can also witness the closure of this cultural village temple. Even though the cinema was a significant part of the village for over half of the century, villagers will have to give it their last goodbye. The trigger in this scenario is the digitalization of cinemas in Slovakia. Village Očová decided not to take a part in this action. Unfortunatelly, this means sending their cinema straight to execution. Will the last goodbye carry the smell of sadness or pride? That is the question.

Life is a big ball that we have to push up a steep hill. All it takes it a single slip to set the ball rolling back down, leaving us with no other option but to start from the bottom again... „Sisyphus“ is a portrait of a former drug addict who has moved to a little house in the country, away from civilization, and spends his time making orgiami in the loft. Sometimes art is the easiest way to start from scratch.
