Against the backdrop of Northern Bohemia, a young man spends his days fixing his beat up Ford, looking for work and for connection in the night-time world of tuning festivals. Into the Clouds We Gaze is a beautifully observed documentary by established Czech Director Martin Dušek (The Analogs), painting a portrait of a growing subculture and an entire generation of aimless youth. "Funny, melancholic and lyrical," Dušek's film explores the life of a young man in a region of infamous anti-Roma marches, high unemployment and uncertainty, providing a compelling snapshot of modern Europe.

Part of the Made in Prague, The New Czech Cinema UK Tour 2015, organised in collaboration with Czech Centre London and Czech Film Center.
