pěšec (2021)

Ten film je o mé neschopnosti se proměnit. O tom, že nedokážu přestat dělat chyby, o kterých vím, že to jsou chyby i když je v mé moci je napravit v daný okamžik. O tom, že se nedokážu vymanit ze série neúspěchů a že s každým dalším debaklem se ve mně mocní pocit, že je příště udělám znova. Že je to prostě zkurvenej kolotoč. Nejde z něho odejít.
