24th Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival
In her work, interdisciplinary artist Kandis Friesen (1978) combines various artistic forms – video, drawing, audio, animation, and graphics. Her projects are a mixture of video installation and documentary collage. In terms of subject matter, she is interested in the interaction between public memory, cultural identity, and personal stories from marginalized communities. Her film Katyusha: Rocket Launchers, Folks Songs, and Ethnographic Refrains was shown at the 2016 Ji.hlava IDFF.
