In 2005, she wrote and directed her first feature, Silence, which was released and won a number of regional awards. In late 2007, she began lecturing at the Screenwriting Department of VSMU, which she still does to this day. In 2008, she received a Doctorate in Screenwriting from VSMU.

The House / Zuzana Liová

Beautiful and melancholy Eva lives in a rural part of the Czech Republic from which she achingly longs to flee when she graduates high school. Her authoritarian and conservative – not for lack of a good heart – father, however, plans to keep her there by building her a house next to the family residence; he sees it as a home and she as a prison. Eva works odd jobs to save money for a ticket to London and gets involved with a married man. Ηer rebellions, an archetypal part of growing up, also constitute a reaction to the parent who denies her the world. Centering on the father-daughter relationship and its traditional conundrums, House is a straightforward, naturalistic family drama, where every element occupies its proper place flawlessly: frames, words, as well as silences are used to construct a classical piece of filmmaking.
