VIENNA CALLING

by Petr Šprincl

synopsis

Ondrej Jajcaj has been obsessed with death since childhood. Starting as a grave-robber, he became self proclaimed scientist/philosopher, focused on the dental remnants of the dead. Jajcaj’s goal is to liberate society from fearing death. To accomplish this, Jajcaj and his followers set on a journey with his mobile caravan of death, moving from village to village and confronting people with the phenomenon of death. The journey eventually turns to Vienna, where Jajcaj returns the dental remnants of Johann Strauss and Johannes Brahms. The remnants, which he took from their graves himself. Majorettes juggle with femur bones and Jajcaj’s caravan moves to another village. The journey doesn’t end, but loops into infinity.
