27th Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival
director: Marek Kuboš
original title: +-90
running time: 90 min.
synopsisIn this partly autobiographical documentary, the director traces the history of Generation 90, a group of Slovak filmmakers who studied in the 1990s. Kuboš conducts interviews with his contemporaries, including Jaroslav Vojtek, Peter Kerekes, and Zuzana Piussi, which he intersperses with their work, while at the same time placing both in a broader cultural and political history. A playfulness and respect for documentary film as such shines through the film.
“Generation 90 is now the dominant one, I think it co-determines not only the face of Slovak cinema but also the face of documentary filmmaking. I can't imagine a bigger break, a jump into the water. Something like that doesn't happen often historically.” — Pavel Branko
