Disease of the Third Power
a film by Zuzana Piussi
2011, 52'

A political documentary about black holes in the 
Slovak judiciary system and about the state of 
law in Slovakia. The film from the backstage of 
the Slovak judiciary system also stands as an 
essay about a very peculiar form of power that 
effaces itself in order to adopt a new name later 
- justice.
