Ever since 2008, Doc Alliance has been organising an international award intended especially for first-time directors. The Doc Alliance Selection Award helps up-and-coming filmmaking talents to put their name on the documentary map, providing a prize of EUR 5,000 to support their future projects. In 2016, Doc Alliance again nominated 7 outstanding films that will be vying for the 9th annual Doc Alliance Selection Award. The name of the winning title will be announced on August 7, 2016 during an official ceremony at the Locarno International Film Festival.
Roots of Relationship // Pravztahy aneb Jak vnučka a babička tahaly řepu a nemohly ji vytáhnout. (Orig.)
2008 / Czech Republic / 20 min
Film unavailable :-(
Sorry, this film is no longer available.
The generation conflict present in the daily disputes of a grandmother and granddaughter, the film director, lead to her decision to leave; the compact images of the gradual moving out of the house, bound by place and time, and the long, agonizing dialogues become a basis for the cruelly intimate documentary within private reality, where feelings mingle with reproach; and where, despite mutual blame, nobody is guilty, as the captured situation is accompanied by nothing but misunderstanding.
