In this retrospective, author presents his video films which have been part of national and international exhibitions and festivals.
In Sedlaczek's work dominate one and multichannel projections. Strong visual and sound part balances on the border of compelling real experience and illusory film decorations. Elements of film noir, interpretations of amateur footage, minimalistic and experimental approach to the film narration, paraphrasing film cliche and usual film schemes - it all constitutes a peculiar atmosphere. His videos create their own autonomous time and absorb viewers into a dark elusive poetics.
