“The Man Who Knew How to Fly”
In this very inventive, fun filled fantasy, Mr. Tomasek has just discovered the human ability to fly. Now he fears the repercussions.
“To Catch a Billionaire”
A cheeky comedy from Vorel. Everyone longs to catch a billionaire—the police, reporters, politicians, artists, ladies and even the clergy. A report is fabricated accusing a successful businessman, Patrik Grossmann, of racism. When the media launches a full-blown campaign against him, the atmosphere gets so thick that anyone can kick him while he’s down, just to prove their morality. Grossmann’s demise seems inevitable until he gets an idea: buy a TV station and get the public opinion on his side. Let the comedy begin.
