Our lives are unique and unrepeatable. The ”Private Century” series shows the history as a set of intimate human stories. Their intensity can adress also the others because the fundamental events happen in the lives of each of us.

The sources for the film cycle ”Private Century” are amateur family films. This material was in the time of its creation an exclusively private matter concerning only a narrow group of people. It however has grown to become a unique testimony of spontaneous private lives. It is a probe to intimate family niches. The ”Private Century” cycle is free of the ambition to present self-contained historical views. Its aim is much more modest: to stop the time. Within the ”Private Century” the local private memory becomes public. All the meanings in the film acquire much wider and more universal humane scope. The ”Private Century” shows the history as a set of intimate human stories.

The ”Private Century” cycle consists of 8 films, each 52 minutes long.
