Short description

The film’s introductory and competition sequence is framed by a black van driving through a beautiful snowy landscape. The sequence which poetically evokes a fatal turning point in the story. Most of the story takes place in an urban environment – at casino tables.

The feature film “Casino.sk“ follows two storylines. The first storyline illustrates the luxurious space of the casino and a gambler clears out one table after the other in an attempt to make as large a fortune as possible. The second storyline is political and linked to officials, oligarchs and similar powers.

We have selected several scenes for you from the first storyline. We believe that it will be interesting, fun work for you, and the members of our prestigious jury are already looking forward to all your competition entries. We wish you good luck and musical inspiration.
