What should the male force look like in the 21st century? Martin Mareček’s film The Force captures five difficult years in the life of a film publicist, feminist and cultural agent Kamil Fila, during which he faces relationship problems, depression and a rather extreme experiment on his own body. The result is not only an incredibly honest testimony on an internal conflict and the middle age crisis, but also a wider reflection of the transformation and forms of masculinity in the new millennium.
