The World of Jiri

director: Marta Kovářová

editor: Varvara Šatunova

producer: Jan Bodnár

producer: Jan Hubáček

An authentic raw documentary from the point of view of a daughter, the director behind the camera, who helps her father a scientist to provoke a world debate about his plan to save the planet from climate upheaval. The viewer observes the relationship between father and daughter on the basis of their joint efforts to provoke a discussion about Jiri’s idea; partial successes in debates with experts in the Czech Republic and mostly disappointments from attempts to meet world movers. After exhausting efforts to find allies in the Czech Republic, Jiri and Marta set off in December 2019 under the guise of journalists on a “mission expedition” to the UN global climate summit in Madrid.
