The T-Shirt

Hossein Martin Fazeli

Czech Republic 2006, 9 min.

Fiction, Short

Spoken language: Slovak

Subtitles: Dutch, English

A T-shirt in a store in Slovakia gets involved in an ingenious and funny comment on extremism and cultural imperialism. Praised as “one of the most successful short films of all times”,
Hossein Martin Fazeli’s hilarious work portrays how a half-American, half-Slovak customer bonds with the store clerk, who is displaying an American flag on the wall and wears a T-shirt that seems to be saying something about God. This leads to unexpected and darkly funny surprises about
war, terrorism and nationhood in a tidy comment on US sloganeering and cultural imperialism.
