An absolutely captivating silent journey across Europe shot with great verve, tenderness and humour. 5 October features the director’s 52-year-old brother Ján in centre frame with a moving narration comprised only of postcards, mementos and the relentless count-down that rises up unimpeded from his journal. With a "flip of the coin" probability of surviving a necessary but very complicated surgery, Ján embarks on his own Easy Rider momento mori odyssey as we slowly discover what he’s running away from.
In addition to his work as a film director (Autoportrét, 2012), cinematographer and producer, Martin Kollár is devoted to documentary photography. His works have been exhibited in prestigious museums such as the Martin-Gropius-Bau (Berlin), Brooklyn Museum of Art (New York) and Zamek Ujazdowski (Warsaw). 5 October is Kollár's feature film debut.
