Once it’s over
Vojtěch Petřina

Close Areas

Close Areas
Zuzana Lazarová

Art and thus artistic and gallery activities became for me an indifferent labyrinth of unfulfilled expectations, a trap for a spectacle. So, as I had no other choice, I returned back to what I still feel like doing. To looking for new appellations for contexts and experience one can hardly express otherwise than by the language of a poem. Each text by a curator was to give one poem.

Cycles
+

Cycles
Jan Chajewski, Veronika Vaculíková

The film works in many layers, researching contrasts between performativity and placement in reality and contrasts in the monumental setting versus the vulnerability of coming out of the cocoon. The film built up the dramaturgy of how you feel reinventing yourself with knowledge.

There is no direction
Václav Pavlíček

We are in a man-made landscape. We watch a bunch of marching people doing the same moves. They are all dressed equally, and their overall look suggests that there is no place for someone to make a distinction. The group stops. They hold their hands. Their movement is synchronized. Suddenly, however, one man in the group stops repeating the movements of others. As if he woke up…

How To Make a Film
Martin Janoušek

In today’s modern times when a film material loses its old potential is this paraphrase of old instructional films from 50s and 60s a tribute to the obsolete way of shooting. The film is playing with its own form and content. Its moderator Milan Cyroň guides the audience through the film production process itself from writing a script through filming on a set to distribution. It contains typical aspects of old instructional films and some film jokes.

CINERGY & FAMUFEST - Our madness

Meet our guests - the portuguese director João Viana and the french DOP Sabine Lancelin. Screening of two of their films. The second part of the masterclass will take place on Saturday 10.11. at FAMU.

(ENGLISH FRIENDLY)

Our Madness

Lucy is hospitalized in a psychiatric hospital in Mozambique. She dreams about her little son, Hanic, and her husband, Pak, who is a soldier of the war. One day Lucy takes her opportunity to run away from the hospital and then a journey begins with the logic of a trance. The images and mise-en-scène of João Viana seem to inhabit that limbo where certainty is canceled and mirages take over the real world. In Our Madness the sound knows how to distrust words and is able to turn to music, the ringing, the murmur or silence to show that dimension only accessible through madness, a deep delirium without stridency, like the beautiful cinematography by Sabine Lancelin.
