My Name is Janez Janša

Director: Janez Janša
Cast: Dražen Dragojević a další

Just how much does our name affect us, our identity, our lives? Is it a unique, personal trade mark, or a universal and transferable item? Is it easy to steal the identity of someone with the same name? Three Slovenian artists change their names, all taking the same name as the Slovenian Prime Minister, Janez Janša. Is this an artistic act or a provocation? What do they intend to achieve by changing their names? What does a name really mean in today's society? A number of artists, philosophers, linguists, and sociologists try to answer these questions. This unusual documentary chronicles an absurd Kafkaesque situation and reveals how much our name determines who we are or who we are not.
