The Aluminium Queen / 25. 2. / MeetFactory

25. 2. / 20:00 / MeetFactory

Apolena Vanišová and Matěj Samec

December 12, 2018, late at night. The American Mars probe InSight just took the first picture on the surface of the Red Planet and started to explore it. The long persisting famine in Yemen is escalating, and more children have been dying after Amal, whose death was widely covered by the media. Exactly 24 years have passed since the beginning of the first Russian-Chechen war and 920 years since the military plundered the city of Maarat al-Numaan in Syria. A Czech woman is alone in her flat in Prague, celebrating her thirtieth birthday. Elsa, who is originally from Grozny, is celebrating her fifty-fourth birthday, we don’t know where. There is sympathy with those who were born in the wrong time, at a wrong place, and one’s own toothache.
