The film study of the detective genre was created by means of re-editing the episodes of a legendary TV series Columbo made between 1968 and 2003. The protagonist Peter Falk closely inspects objects around him, one object leads to the next one. The film follows the object-led contemplative wandering of the protagonist, until he slowly becomes an old man. The film suggests the possibility of a different approach towards objects that is based on the intense and serious observation of them.
Roman Štětina (1986, Kadaň, lives and works in Prague). Štětina graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague and the Städelschule, Frankfurt. He recently had solo shows at Spike Island, Bristol; Cardiff Contemporary, MNAC Bucharest.
