“Technique? Not interested. Whatsoever. No problem if it’s out of focus, but it should have feeling and atmosphere,” says one of the originators of the 1980s Slovak New Wave in describing their approach. This likable and lively documentary investigates a generation of photographers for whom playfulness, freedom of gesture, and irony became essential elements of artistic expression.
