Luba Skořepová has spent the past several years in solitude, struggling to stay an active theatre actress as long as she can. She invited the film crew into her home in order to shoot her daily life. Although the resulting film contains archival footage from her youth, it is definitely not a biographical film. The filmmakers focus on the present day, capturing scenes from the life of an old and solitary woman who possesses the will to live an active life but who is no longer important for others. Skořepová herself was behind the making of the film, through which she hopes to call attention to the subject of loneliness among old people.

“Luba wanted to film Alone in order to call attention to the subject of loneliness among old people. I am convinced that we have succeeded.” O. Faifr


Debuting director Otakar Faifr (1980) previously worked in theatre himself. He is a co-founder of Geisslers Hofcomoedianten, which produces comedies inspired by baroque tradition and where he worked as dramaturge, producer and actor. Alone, shot in collaboration with Luba Skořepová, was funded by the Taťána Kuchařová Foundation – Beauty of Help and through crowdfunding.
