A young woman is looking for an apartment in a busy metropolis, while overcoming the ubiquitous alienation and trying to find closeness. The topic of life wandering is examined through crowded city streets, empty spaces and mechanical underground. The film uses a combination of stylised movements and expressive dance to discover new forms of film language with an emphasis on the role of sound and picture more than a dialogue. As the woman explores different spaces, a new life is given to seeming banalities of everyday life. Physical dialogue with the void begins as the question of space identity in an anonymous cityscape. “Delimitation” is a personal journey from an inner isolation to the ability to open up to others, meanwhile discovering yourself.

Born in 1995. Tereza graduated from the Film and TV School of the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague (FAMU). Her student short film “A Part” (2017) won a Special Jury Prize at FAMUFEST Film Festival in 2017, was nominated for the Magnesie Award by the Czech Film and Television Academy and was featured in the National Competition at the Prague Short Film Festival. Her short film “Sugar” (2019), exploring contemporary forms of relationships, such as sugar dating, was premiered at the Aesthetica Short Festival and won a Special Jury Prize at the Ostrava Kamera Oko Film Festival in 2019. “Delimitation” is her experiment with classical narrative and expressive dance as a form of acting and is a result of her fascination with the physical expression of the human body and abstract visual forms. Tereza is currently working on two feature film scripts, one of them “The Flower” was supported by the Czech Film Fund. Besides that she works as an editor and director for non-profit organisation Post Bellum, she also directs music videos.
