KineDok will start with the screening of 1989 in Slovakia, the authors will be present
On Wednesday, April 15, the official launch of project KineDok in Slovakia will take place in Bratislava in A4 -Association for Contemporary Culture. The introductory film will be the Danish-Hungarian documentary 1989. During the following year, screenings at 20 more non-traditional venues will take place in Slovakia.
KineDok- the international project focused on screenings of exceptional creative documentaries at alternative venues and debates with the filmmakers, will have its first session in Slovakia this Wednesday. "It will be officialy launched with the public screening of a Danish-Hungarian film, 1989 and a discussion with its directors Anders Østergaard and Erzsébet Rácz. A docu-party will follow. The authors of 1989, which I personally consider a great political drama about the fall of the Iron Curtain, will accompany the film tour throughout Slovakia in the next three days. After the screening in Bratislava they will introduce their film in the film club of The University of Ss. Cyril and Methodius inTrnava and then in Topolčany," says the main coordinator of KineDok in Slovakia Eva Križková from Filmtopia.
In the course of the year, up to 12 documentaries will be screened at each of the twenty alternative spaces and film clubs. "They are documentaries, which bind to important social issues. After the screenings, discussions will follow with filmmakers from Slovakia and abroad. Among the selected documentaries there are such gems as the Oscar-nominated Joanna by a Polish director Aneta Kopacz, " says Eva Križková. In the KineDok programme there is also the visually refined portrait of two notorious recidivists -film Comeback by the Slovak director Miro Remo. The interview with him about this film, which was competing in Karlovy Vary IFF 2014 among others, can be found here.
Comeback, Joanna, 1989, and other films from KineDok selection will be screened for example in the Centre for Independent Culture Záhrada in Banska Bystrica, in the cultural centre Dunaj in Bratislava, Kulturfabrik Bona Fide in Košice, Pôtoň theatre in Bátovce, Art Café in Žilina, etc. For the complete list of the screening venues and dates visit www.kinedok.net a www.filmtopia.sk.
