26th Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival
Fascinations: Lumír Hladík
The eight-millimetre films by Czech artist Lumír Hladík capture the creator's body-art and landscape events from the turn of the 1970s and 80s. These are private events with the presence of a camera, which can be viewed as authentic documentaries or as small, experimental film miniatures. It is also one of the few period film recordings within the context of Czech performance, which is historically known mainly for its photography. The screening was put together by the National Film Archive on the basis of Hladík’s newly digitised films.
