27th Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival
This year, in the ongoing series of retrospectives devoted to the history of avant-garde film through the ways of representation of certain topic or motive, we want to map the representation of "progress". Something inscribed in the nature of the avant-garde itself, the topic was also widely represented - typically with enthusiasm and admiration, but sometimes also critically. We are interested in films from the beginning of cinema until today. The works from the beginning of cinema and between-the-war period. The "classical" works and "big" names, but also not so well-known films and authors.
The films selected for the Ji.hlava IDFF 2022 edition are below.
