Original purpose of this film was like an attachment to bachelor´s work focused on freetekno subculture and phenomenon of freeparty in the context of Czech Republic area. The main goal is exposed an emic point of view on freeparty to the readers and specatators. The other aim is attempt to explain a certain schism in freetekno czech scene which is caused by influence of economic tendency on the culture industry. There is a connection with desintegration of ideas based on popularization (became popular among the masses), relaxation and last but not least self-realization.

This film is first project of talented anthropologist, who approached to visual anthropology at his „alma mater“ University of Pardubice. At the same university he is now attending master program.

Two filmmakers dive into an ancient rite of manhood in Islamic Java – the tender and raucous sport of the singing doves, the Indonesian Nascar. When General Zainuri announces The National Perkutut Championship, thousands of Muslim men arrive at the grounds. Seven hundred poles stand in the center. Men hoist their doves – perkutut – seven meters up and dangle them ina sea of colorful cages.
A team of judges passes trought the forest of tall posts straining to discern the birds magical coos. If the judges are impressed they score a bird´s dong by tacking a small flag to the pole. After three hours a winner is declared. Winning perkutut sell for tens of milion rupiahs – tens of thousands of dollars.
