Fascinated by amateur film, he signed up for his studies at the Department of Documentary Film at the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague (FAMU). During his studies, he made several films of great thematic variety, ranging from a reportage from a travel agency trip to visit Czech countrymen living in the forgotten villages in the mountains of Romania, through a portrait of anarchist Hillary and Marxist Chris, Californian musicians who escaped from America to Tábor in Southern Bohemia, to the film narrated by Jaroslav Tříska, amateur filmmaker from Blšany village who decided to make a film “about the smallest village in the world to play first league football.“ The film Village B. was awarded the best documentary at the 2002 Karlovy Vary International Film Festival and the 2003 FAMU festival, also winning the Don Quijote Award at the 2003 Annual Art Film Fest in Trenčianske Teplice, Slovakia, and several other awards at festivals both in Europe and the US.

He is the co-founder of the Institute of Documentary Film to support Czech film abroad. Together with his colleague Vít Klusák, he co-founded the Hypermarketfilm production company. Their very first project, a controversial documentary about a fictitious supermarket Czech Dream, already raised great attention. Their upcoming feature-length project Czech Peace deals with the Czech public response to Czech Republic’s becoming part of the anti-ballistic missile defense system.
