Shooting of short movie Tonight the world in Brno

From July 23 to July 27 took place the shooting of short movie Tonight the world in Brno. The production spread over three locations in Brno; mostly in the vila Stiassni, in forest of Kohoutovice and in the Atelier XL in Divišova čtvrť. Among the 35 people of film crew were professionals from London, Prague and Brno.

The film is inspired by dream diaries of Susi Stiassni, daughter of builders of the Vila Stiassni and founders of the local textile factory. Among thousands of her dreams, more than 250 are connected with her childhood in Brno. Daria Martin, the granddaughter of Susi Stiassni and the director of the film, returned to the country of her ancestors, to restage 7 of the 250 dreams. These will form a short film, commissioned by the Barbican centre in London.

Check out the photos from the film set in the gallery. The press day was attended by journalists from Czech Television, Czech radio and Czech Press agency, covering the event in various reportages.

The film is now postproduction phase. The 16 mm film negative has been developed in Bonton film labs Zlín, scanned in UPP Prague and now being edited in London. The premiere will take place in the Curve gallery of Barbican centre, London by the end of January 2019.
