We are pleased to announce that after long deliberation "Testosterone Story - The Fragile Beauty of Masculinity", written by Andrea Culkova, has been selected for the 2nd edition of EWA’s scriptwriter residency programme in Berlin.
The high quality and diversity of the projects submitted made the decision-making process both complicated and inspiring, so we are also pleased to give a special mention to "It’s Bonny by the Sea" by Rebecca Innes.
Winner: "Testosterone Story-The Fragile Beauty of Masculinity" by Andrea Culkova
In the heart of Europe there’s a swimming pool where the water is almost completely still and the surface is just barely disturbed by the clumsy limbs of those who have been kissed by death. Testosterone’s fanatic riders have been brought here, the Kladruby Sanatorium, from all over the world to attempt the practically impossible - a return to life.
To do this they must reconsider all their previous goals and accept the fact that the world will never be the same as before death’s kiss, but that even this is a triumph. Yet not everyone is able to understand this and not everyone will make it during their five-month stay in the sanatorium. After all, it’s the past with all its debts, mortgages, and unresolved relationships that mercilessly catches up with them here. Indeed, nothing tests a relationship more than the serious injury of a partner.
And what about Adam and his wife, the rehabilitation nurse ŠteÌŒpánka? How do they fit into all of this?
