The first day of filming was to feature the Edenist Manifesto and a conversation with its author, Vašek Návrat. The crew, time and place were agreed upon and we spent the night prior buzzing with nervous excitement.
At six in the morning we started receiving SMS messages and phone-calls suggesting that we postpone the shoot since it was pouring rain in Prague. Our gut feeling was that if we were to start this project by fleeing rain, then we’d never get the film made. We decided to go ahead as planned and asked the others to bring as many umbrellas as they could find.
We met, got soaked, got the scene, had some sound problems with the rain, and then went for some warm tea.
