Alice and the miracle of the world

Production company: RAMAGU FILM
Producer: Lukáš Marhefka
Director: Daniel Dluhý

Alenka, a Romany girl – was born in the early nineties in Slovakia. The beginning of her life is sad – institutional care becomes a part of her life until adulthood and she grows up in foster homes. Her position in early adulthood by eyes of the public is “gypsy, from foster home, with special school.” Today, Alenka is 29 years old. She lives and works in Germany. She is successfully independent and stands on her own two feet. Like a small girl she met Michael, who became a solid point in her life. He looked at her as a real person. Years of their friendship continue.

Beyond a knit cap

Production company: VIRUSfilm
Producer: Vít Janeček
Director: Violette Deffontaines

The thinking of the independence leader, agronomist and Guinean poet Amílcar Cabral agitates still today the “beautiful” notions of independence and equality. Cabral drove Portuguese imperialism out of his country in the 60s and 70s with a cap on his head. This traditional Czechoslovak accessory has become since the Cold War a political, cultural and religious symbol in West Africa and Central Europe (I Slovakia it’s has been called “Budajka” according to Ján Budaj – political dissident who was wearing it while working as a manual worker). The film sets out to meet its wearers today and explore the forms of struggles that move them in different parts of the world. It takes the prism of this “Cabral cap” to question the notion of power and bring forth the present value of Cabral’s critical and constructive outlook on the world.

An instant of non-Existence

Production company: Retroviseur Productions
Producer: Dorian BLANC
Director: Hannah Papacek Harper

At the crossing of two rivers in Vojvodina (region of the north of Serbia) there is a village called Backi Petrovac. An enclave of identity and language, it is the biggest Slovak village in Serbia. In the centre of it is a large theatre which brings together another smaller community of actors of all ages lead by a Slovak director toward grand projects of theatre and film. Stuck with a hybrid sense of belonging, they exist, act, create and drink.  An Instant of non-existence observes life gently over several summers, from 2013 to 2021.  From bar life to the making of a feature movie in the village it  is a questioning identity, community and the feeling of freedom.

Love the Generals

What Peter

Production company: GNOMON Production
Producer: Jan Bodnár
Director: Martin Trabalík

Documentary film What about Peter? is a project with a clear societal appeal reflecting the situation of children with autism and their families, which we look at from the point of view  of several diverse characters. Our main protagonist; fourteen years old Peter lost his mother this year. Peter is growing up now, his physical strength is growing, his uncontrollable emotions are growing stronger with puberty, and due to the lack of systemic help, it seems almost impossible to provide sustainable care for him. So the painful and most urgent question arises; how can his father cope with such a situation?
