country: Belarus, Russia, Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia
year: 2016

synopsis

Videos from Russian roads have become an internet phenomenon. Dash cams record their surroundings without any embellishment. Out of fifty such videos, Dima Kalashnikov has made something much more than just another YouTube compilation. Thanks to music and sophisticated editing, he successfully created a multi-layered portrait of contemporary Russia.

“There is as much humor as tragedy witnessed here. The film really depicts the essence of Russian life and the Russian attitude to life. It is a very Russian film.” D. Kalashnikov

Nicolas Philibert: Film As an Invitation
At this master class organized by the Jihlava IDFF and the Institute of Documentary Film, French director Nicolas Philibert – a recipient of the European Film Academy’s Best Documentary Film Award, among other things – will share his unusual approach to filming and storytelling, which he summarizes with the sentence, “The less I know about a topic, the better I feel!” This filmmaker, who has long been fascinated with language and communication, transforms curiosity and ignorance into an effective filmmaking method. Philibert’s documentaries have explored dark visions of a future world controlled by the financial sector, everyday life at a one-room school in a remote mountain village, or one broadcast day at Radio France, but they always touch on paths that we set out on without a map but with courage.

Lecture: Craig Baldwin’s Orphan Morphin'
There is no “center” to the art of filmmaking, and–for better or worse–no “avant-garde” either. The engaged cineaste of our post-industrial times not only LOOKS at, but also–often at the same time–PRODUCES all sorts of para-cinematic work on the margins… that’s why we call our San Francisco-based project “Other Cinema”. Among the many practices of this cinema povera is the re-purposing of older found film artifacts. Discarded by institutions switching to digital, and generally available for free or very cheaply, these motion pictures are called “Orphans” because they have no sponsors or archival shepherds. Craig Baldwin’s 80-min. lecture-demo at the Jihlava Fest will trace the history of this reclamation, of this “surfing the wave of obsolescence” towards a perverse revenge against the Society of the Spectacle.

Game
A sophisticated game of cat and mouse in which the constantly moving camera is the hunter and the young woman wandering the streets of Ljubljana to the sounds of jazz music is the prey. The film spent fifty years hidden under the bed of one of the filmmakers and was first screened at a meeting of Slovenian amateur filmmakers.„All my films have certain message and only important thing for me is and was to catch a spirit of time.“ K. Godina

Masterclass: Godfrey Reggio
Godfrey Reggio’s task will be to provoke those present to consider the most misunderstood and consequential subject of the last 5,000 years: the Technological Environment. Technology is not something we use; it is as ubiquitous as the air we breathe. Though seeing, we are blind to its presence, hidden in plain sight. For those willing to “take a walk on the wild side,” we will explore how we see the world through language, how our languages no longer describe the world in which we live, and how through the lens of outsider cinema we may approach this untellable subject. The focus is speechless narrative, not a story to be told, but rather a story to behold. In a syntax of the eye, the form is cinematic poetry. Godfrey Reggio invites you to join him on this journey to the vivid unknown.

Masterclass: Viktor Kossakovsky
After 16 years the Russian documentarian Victor Kossakovsky, who is undoubtedly one of the most outstanding contemporary filmmakers, will be returning to Jihlava as the leader of the Ex Oriente Film Workshop and as a jury member for the festival’s competitive Opus Bonum section. This director gained international renown thanks to his film The Belovs (1993), which has since achieved cult status. He has the justifiable reputation as a filmmaker who not only is able to capture mundane situations with subtle transcendental poetic visual and audio elements but also has an innate talent for composition, internal rhythm, and drama within individual scenes. In his open Masterclass, Kossakovsky will give the participants insight into the principles of his work and sources of inspiration, which, in addition to the magic of everyday life, he also finds in the visual arts, poetry and classical literature. The lecture will be preceded by a screening of his film ¡Vivan las Antipodas! (2011).

Long Live the Antipodes!
It’s difficult to imagine two more different places to live than Brasil’s Entre Rios and Shanghai in China. Despite this, they have something in common - they are antipodes - two places connected by a straight line through the centre of the earth. Using contrasting images from these geographically and culturally opposite countries, the filmmaker turns our views of the world upside-down. “You need your brain both before and after filming, but don’t use your brain during filming. Just film using your instinct and intuition.”Victor Kossakovsky
