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).

No Home Movie
Chantal Akerman dedicated this film to her mother, who after her liberation from Auschwitz shut herself up in her home. Akerman accentuates her hyperrealist style through the use of digital technology (cheap DV camera, smartphone), thus capturing not only the closeness of home but also the distance between her mother’s life and modern nomadic existence.

Masterclass: Jacopo Quadri
Italian film editor Jacopo Quadri worked with documentary filmmaker Gianfranco Rosi on the successful Fire at Sea, which won the Golden Bear for Best Film at this year’s Berlinale. As part of his editing master class, he will screen his own film The Summer School (2014). According to Quadri, film editing “is something liquid and physical. It looks like a river that cuts through unknown lands. The spectator is like a swimmer or a sailor. Each element is linked to the other by contrast or similarity as if the film were a journey.”

The Yes Men Are Revolting
This documentary comedy proves that even environmental activism can be carried out with insight and humor. A duo of seasoned agitators infiltrate conferences and, using hoaxes, fake press releases and various declarations, draw attention to themselves so that they can point out the callousness and arrogance of large corporations and government organizations.“All of these actions could’ve been YouTube videos and that’s the end of it, but we wanted to tell a more complex story about what it also means to be an activist over time.” (Andy Bichlbaum)

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

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 Karel Vachek: How Vachek films Communism
Professor Karel Vachek (1940), the doyen of Czech documentary film and the last active member of the New Wave, is filming his latest cinematic novel, which has the working title Communism. In his film, he argues that revolutions are always followed by the restoration of the old order, and that power and wealth continue to be held by just a select few. Vachek guides the viewer through a collage of his personal memories, framed by scenes from his films, costume designs and news archives. During his lecture, he will show a roughly one-hour excerpt of recently edited scenes and will engage in audience discussion. And perhaps he will reveal whether he has managed to convince actress Jiřina Bohdalová to participate in his project.

Masterclass: Lordan Zafranović
Croatian director Lordan Zafranović, a representative of the Yugoslavian Black Wave, graduated from FAMU, where he studied under Elmar Klos. He was living in Prague when he made his documentary The Decline of the Century: Testament L. Z. (1994). His latest work is the documentary cycle Tito – Last Witnesses of the Testament (2012). In 2013, he was a jury member for the Between the Seas section. Zafranović believes that the soul of film exists in each filmmaker’s inimitably original form. This form, made up of time, space and the various key film materials, establishes the basis that brings all of the film elements into harmony. He compares filmmaking with music. In his masterclass, Zafranović will focus on how film works are composed and the origination and acceptance of new film forms.
