synopsis

Fixers are local guides who tell journalists how to get the best images of war – from what angle to shoot a ruined airport, which checkpoint to pass through and which to avoid. A wartime road movie from eastern Ukraine, the film follows the fixer Ruslan and a Columbian television crew that wants just one thing – to see war.

Al-Araqeeb
A documentary observing the fortunes of the Al-Araqarqeeb , a village that has been already destroyed 111 times. The Bedouin settlement was needed for military training, so the army ordered its evacuation in 1951. The inhabitants were not permitted to come back even after the date that was set for them to return. The village is being repeatedly demolished by the state of Israel since 2010.  The struggle between the state and its citizens continues.

The Modern-day Robin Hood
This film, shot on 16mm colour film, explores the life of a person who steals things according to written lists. He takes only specific things that people need – primarily senior citizens, single mothers, and other socially marginalized people. When is a crime a crime? Where does this modern 21st-century Robin Hood live, and what do his activities bring him?

Umm al-Hiran
Under the surface of the modern state of Israel there lie stories that are largely hidden from European visitors. One of these is the fate of Palestinian Bedouins in underdeveloped areas living in unrecognized villages. A meditatively experimental film by an Israeli-Czech team captures the atmopshere of these places and the tragic fates of some of their inhabitants.

inscenatiOn.1948
A film about staging a theater performance 70 years after the events of 1948, as well as the real theater production that the whole communist coup was. Puppets seemingly without puppeteers, puppets moving about of their own free will - this is how communist comrades were and this is exactly how they’re presented in this film.

Grandfather’s Magic
This portrait of the filmmaker’s grandfather, stage manager of the Laterna Magika and slightly eccentric intellectual, is stylised into a surreal performance. In a small space, the film builds an original formal structure that freely oscillates between playfulness and illustration, childishness and seriousness, the Buddhistic here and now and sharp patterns of thoughtful post-production.

Blow-off!
In Czech, “vykuř!” is not only a command but now even an interjection. The film presents an elusive portrait of the ex-structural existence of a poet and modern-day king living outside the system and conventions, yet still moving through all shades of the spectrum of the meaning of this word.

If you place one spaghetti on second spaghetti
“When Joe says that the world will end in twenty years, why make movies?” “But this is also a culinary film!” This summery, sunny portrait of the French film collective MTK, devoted to their artistic cinema lab equipped to work with black and white and color material, offers similar impressive fragments of thoughts, comments and questions. The film will be screened from 16mm film.

Let's play soldiers
Respectable pieces of military technology have become nothing more than toys. Tanks and armored vehicles glamorously parade through town, and for a moment war seems like a fun pastime, a game for little children.

Love at the Monastery
In this highly personal film, the director returns to a French Christian community in order to relive thoughts and feelings from several years prior, and to see the woman whom he loved but from whom he had been forcibly separated. Literary journals blend with video, physical love with spiritual love.
