Somewhere Over the Chemtrails
(Kdyby radši hořelo)

  •   Adam Koloman Rybanský
  •   Czech Republic

Lovable if oafish family man Standa volunteers as a firefighter in a small Czech village. Highly impressionable, he unquestioningly follows the advice of his older colleague, the conspiracy-obsessed Bronya. When a car accident interrupts the town’s Easter celebration and injures a townsperson, Bronya seizes the opportunity to stoke racial animus by claiming the crash was an act of terrorism. A farcical display ensues as the fearful locals arm themselves against the non-existent threat. An incisive social satire, Somewhere Over the Chemtrails cleverly lays bare the insidious if banal forces that shape conspiratorial thinking and herd mentality.
