The Previants

Scenes from the life of village musicians.
Read more...
Everyone has experienced it at least once - a country wedding or a country funeral, a baptism, a feast on the occasion of a pig-slaughtering, Shrovetide ... Relatives and friends meet, both the locals and those from further afield. The prescribed ritual takes place in a most dignified manner, but only then, it seems, does the main event begin. Food is laid out on the table, people talk, remember, complain about the times, give advice, mourn and also dance and sing.
The film portrays the mood of these festivities and their main actors - the musicians. It is poetic, but also a little ironical, kindly, humorous, but also cynical and nostalgic. These musicians accompany the country dweller from the cradle to the grave.
Will this phenomenon of folk music, which carries within it the national tradition, disappear?
The film was made with the financial support of the State fund of the Czech Republic for the support and development of Czech cinematography.

One Year

The film portrays seven inhabitants of the foothills of the White Carpathians who were born either before or in the course of W. W. I, that is, between 1907-1917. The filmmakers visited them both on ordinary days and on traditional church and state holidays. The result is a testimony of the value system and order of people whose life journey began at the beginning of such a contradictory and difficult century and ends at its frenetic close. A testimony that touches on questions of age, illness, death, faith and culture without sentimentality. A testimony about people who, in spite of difficult mountain conditions, maintained their free spirit and humour as an expression of their great inner strength.
