Could politics appear attractive on TV?

original title: Může být politika v televizi atraktivní?
running time: 90 min.

synopsis

Most TV viewers see as the most boring such documents, TV journalism and even entertainment formats that focus on political issues. This workshop will present three programs that prove to be the very opposite of boring: The Circus, a Showtime docusoap, following the US presidential campaigns since the first primaries in January 2016; BBC’s An Idiot's Guide to Politics, which reminds politicians of their broken promises; and Channel 4’s Ballot Monkeys, a satirical series, where TV audience watches the British election campaign through the eyes of four MP hopefuls.

Video Day 1989/2018
The exhibition Video Day, the first collective presentation of video art in the Czech lands, took place on June 11, 1989 at Julius Fučík Culture and Relaxation Centre (today’s Prague Exhibition Grounds) as part of the annual presentation of the Czech Association of Visual Artists.   The exhibition Video Day 1989/2018 was a reconstruction of the original 1989 exhibition which took place on September 4, 2018. Martin Mazanec as the curator came up with an idea of initiating a debate on historical forms of presentation, but also on potential preservation of moving images. The reasons why video art has been up to now avoided by large numbers of institutions and artists may be illustrated within areas representing the clash between socio-cultural and economic circumstances of the origination and existence of individual works of art.   Discussion with invited guests will be accompanied by fragments of works by artists exhibiting back in 1989: Věra Geislerová & René Slauka, Václav Hodan, Roman Milerský, 5D studio (Tomáš Kepka, Michal Pacina, Marta Karoliová), Radek Pilař, Pavel Scheufler, Petr Skala, Lucie Svobodová, Ivan Tatíček and Jaroslav Vančát.

Welcome
The spoken word plays the main role in this investigative documentary. While the screen remains black, we listen to a conversation between officials and filmmakers who want to shoot a film about lung disease in Sichuan. The audio record exposes the typical strategy of censorship, progressing from false affability to the point of open threats.

Man's World
When a village mayor in the Shanxi province gets killed, one of the villagers is chosen by the police as a scapegoat. His drawings of the torture to which he was subjected to plead guilty to the murder he did not commit, yet for which he spent five years in prison, are a testament of police brutality in Shanxi.

Samizdat
While on a trip with Ivan M. Jirous, Jan Ságl came across several dozen metal printers’ plates hanging out in the open landscape. A much-needed product in samizdat circles, the plates were being used to scare away birds. The film shows a sun-drenched landscape with scattered silver points arranged in random constellations like some kind of land-art. It is loosely inspired by Zorka Ságlová landscape interventions, which Jan Ságl regularly helped to realize and document in his photographs, and in which a large role is played by the juxtaposition of the landscape with objects of a more geometric nature

Prerequisites and Emergence of FAMU’s Documentary Department in 1963-1970
What are the ideological concepts behind the emergence of documentary film as a separate field of study at FAMU? How is the documentary approach to film specific and unique? How can this specificity be reflected in the teaching and how does it differ from journalism? Documentarian Viola Ježková will try to answer these questions. The workshop will be supplemented with examples of student film exercises. Participant input and discussion will be welcomed.---Kurátorka programu a autorka textů / Curator and author of the texts: Viola Ježková

Open Fortress
The film deals with events at Masaryk University in Brno during one academic year against the background of annual celebrations of historic events that helped to shape the academy’s present orientation. Through a large number of annual events and rituals with graduation ceremonies as their peak, the film asks questions about the continuity of university traditions and whether they still hold their original meaning: a quest to seek truth in the free world populated by students and professors. The film will be co-screened with Universities and Freedom. A Q&A session with guests is planned after the screening.

Miloš Šejn: Stream, Tree and Stone
The works of Miloš Šejn from the 1970s represent an unusual form of landscape film. It is based on a combination of land-art and physical performance, and can be perceived as both lyrical and spontaneous, but at the same time, silenced and concentrated. It uses the camera as an extension of vision and of the body and also as a tool to capture physical contact with nature, often in conjunction with extreme physical experiences. His films testify of his own experience as well as of the role of man in the surrounding ecosystem. With the filmmaker himself acting an active participant in the event, the National Film Archive will present a selection of his newly digitized films, some of which will be screened for the first time.The Workshop is led by Martin Blažíček Through the Maple Mine, 1977, 7 min   Mumlava, 1978, 7 min   Zívr's Prachov Rocks, 1978, 7 min   Journey, 1979, 7 min   Ravine, 1979, 23 min   Braun's Nativity Scene, 1985, 3 min

Scenes from the Underground. The Films of Jan Ságl, 1971–1974
Jan Ságl (*1942) is considered the court photographer of the Czechoslovak underground of the 1960s and ’70s. He also shot a total of 12 short films in 1971-1974. With a Super-8 camera, he photographed and filmed scenes from the underground, including concerts and happenings. Because he was a past of this closed community, his camera and hand-held spotlight had direct access to people and events, allowing him to create a captivating record of the atmosphere of underground culture.---Kurátor programu a autor textů / Curator and author of the texts: Martin Blažíček, FAMU CAS

We most commonly see Normalization era in Czechoslovakia – the time of social and political repression following the country’s invasion by Warsaw Pact troops in 1968 – through documentaries about dissidents or from old television series. But the dilemmas posed by the totalitarian regime affected everybody. The 16-part series Stories of the 20th Century explores various people’s (students, journalists, miners, secret police collaborators, soldiers, rank-and-file Party members, homosexuals, and many others) responses to the pressure they received not only from the government apparatus but also from those around them. ---Three films from the series will be presented by their writers and directors. Tři filmy představí a debatu o nich povedou režiséři a scenáristé cyklu.
