24th Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival
The film 29 26 is an audiovisual recording of the thoughts and feelings of two sixteen-year-old and two nineteen-year-old girls, who in monologues reveal their concerns and ideas about the life they’ll lead in ten years. The director underscores their speech with stylized and realistic images of themselves, acquired under varying circumstances and on different materials, thus creating an original work of art connecting elements of multiple artistic areas that are close to the author. Long shots of the protagonists’ faces, captured in great detail, are highlighted with expressive illumination and interleaved with poetic, experimentally conceived passages.
„‘The world grows with fear next to us‘“ - 29 26, tries to be an intimate and honest tribute/portrait about growing up. Together we create a new space, between performance and film hoping to remember who we were one day.“ P. Velho
Pedro Velho (1991) graduated first with a degree in drama and theater studies, and later with a degree in graphic design. His artistic work runs to the experimental, connecting film with performance art and photography, moving, in his own words, on the fine line between documentary and fiction. His technique is similar to that of artist Sergio Galvão Roxo, with whom he has frequently collaborated.
