Martín Perano is a young Argentinean piano virtuoso and composer whose life has been turned upside-down by mental illness. He spent the past few years in the largest psychiatric hospital in South America, El Borda in Buenos Aires. After his release he returned to the nearly empty house of his parents, where his biggest concern was to learn to live without walls and to go back to the piano, which he played every day in the institute. The director patiently observes Martín’s return; in interviews with his loved ones, he learns more about Martín’s past, lyrically approaching the inner workings of a person obsessed with creation, capable of taking strength from their own hypersensitivity.

The State Capture

Zuzana Piussi, SK/CZ, 2019, 79 min.

» The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the protagonist of the film Radovan Bránik.

After the murders of the journalist Ján Kuciak and his fiancée Martina Kušnírová, the shooting of the documentary about a new kind of social establishment in which the traditional state structures become replaced with Mafia and oligarchy took a huge turn. By interviewing various persons – lawyers, bloggers, journalist, security experts, and former secret service agents –, the author tries to uncover the complex network of those influencing the Slovakian public space. The investigative film about a country in which the communist regime fell thirty years ago offers overwhelming facts about the unclear relationships among former secret service agents and interest groups, and shows the issues and threats faced by both journalists and the public.


The Echoes of Ji.hlava IDFF in Vienna are organized in collaboration with the Czech Centre Vienna and the Embassy of the Czech Republic in Austria.
