PROJECTS

After the storm

AFTER THE STORM (LT)
Production company: KETVIRTA VERSIJA
Producer: Teresa Rožanovska
Director: Francesco Rufini

It is said that life is a constant search: either to find oneself or to look for answers. “Po Audros” follows the amber seekers in their constant search for amber, an ancient Lithuanian pursuit. Perhaps, the next washed-out piece will hold the answers they are looking for…

Dajori

DAJORI (CZ)
Production company: FILM & SOCIOLOGIE
Producer: Jan Bodnár
Directors: Martin Páv, Nicolas Kourek

Marie (45 years old) is a Romani woman, mother of three children and lives an orderly life with her husband Enrik (50 years old), who is trying to get her family and the wider community out of the spiral of poverty that afflicts them. Iveta (35 years old) is Marie’s sister and is referred to by many as her complete opposite. She has nine children, but she cannot take care of them due to her addiction to meth.

The upcoming film Dajori (which means Mother in Romani language) tells the story of how Marie takes care of her relatives at a time when they could not keep a roof over their heads. While dealing with this problem, another one arises when they find out that two of Iveta’s children have been taken into foster care…

I don't know if that makes sense

I DON’T KNOW IF THAT MAKES SENSE (IN)
Production company: KADHAS
Producer / Director: Anantha Krishnan

In this film we follow the curator and artist Johan Grimonprez into a world broader than the scientific realm. Grimonprez is a man not scared of questioning everything. What is consciousness for example? And what about time? Are there such things as horizontal and vertical time?

Privet Europa

NEM CÁ, NEM LÁ (PT)
Production company: MANILHA FILMES
Producer / director: Hermano Moreira

“Nem Cá, Nem Lá”, tells the adventures of ARTISTS from Portuguese-speaking countries, who migrated to Portugal. It talks about expectations and realities of immigration, while performing his arts and telling how his personal conflicts and his creative processes were impacted and transformed with the move from the country of origin to Europe.

New neighbours

NEW NEIGHBOURS (SK)
Production company: FILMFRAME
Producer: Zuzana Chadimova
Directors: Marian Bushan, Adrian Mihalik

Big and small things. Facts and stories that are characteristic of Ukrainians, our new neighbours in our neighbourhood. Based on Slovak local podcast with real heroes, we bring you the stories of our new neighbours as they adapt to life in our country. The narration is through their inner perception and concrete experiences. It opens the way to understanding the essence of what Ukraine is made of and how to understand Ukrainians living among us.

Raw rent a womb

RAW RENT A WOMB (SK)
Production company: STALKER PRODUCTION
Producer: Veronika Verešová
Director: Jaro Ridzoň

Eye-opening journey into surrogacy exploring the truth behind this controversial practice in EU legislation through stories of surrogate mothers and hopeful parents. From the dark side of exploitation and abuse to the ethical and legal questions, this film seeks to understand the limits and benefits of surrogacy. It aspires to offer several perspectives and opinions to help shape the public discourse around this topic.

Tough life of a musician

TOUGH LIFE OF A MUSICIAN (IT)
Production company: GRISMEDIO
Producer / director: Antonio Marenco

Jacinto and Pablo Melara are “Los Ganglios,” a legendary “Punk Techno Porc” group born in Extremadura and successfully exported to Barcelona. However, the two brothers juggle the life of an artist, an employee, and a family man… well, they have no other option but to make their creativity an unstoppable mechanism.

“The tough life of a musician” becomes the search for a balance between different worlds. Their story unfolds through loops: the creative family environment of their childhood, a recent tour, and the composition of the new album.

This documentary wants to be a portrait not only of my two friends but also of a category that is seldom celebrated critically: the artist who struggles to turn their passion into a job.

Tskaltubo

TSKALTUBO (SK)
Production company: SUPER FILM
Producer: Simona Hrušovská
Director: Andrea Kalinová

Thirty years ago Tskaltubo was the most sought after spa town in the USSR. After it’s collapse, followed by a war with Abkhazia and Georgia, the spas had become the largest refugee camp in the country. Around 6 000 refugees found a home in the sanatoriums.
