66% of Slovaks say they speak English, but only 33 % actually do. 90% think corruption is normal. 52% would prefer not to live in Slovakia, and just 11% feel truly happy. “Could that be the very same 11% of  Slovaks who are alcoholics, or is it another 11%?”, wonders director Michal Vajdička. ‘Empty Hole’ is a hilarious parody of Slovakian politics and culture. Eleven actors and actresses, known for their film and television work in Slovakia, improvise with figures derived from statistics, news headlines and opinion polls. This succession of quick-fire scenes offers a crash course in hectic Slovakian life.
