My Recommendation! Erika Hníková, film director

Erika Doporucuji

New Scenes from America (d. Jorgen Leth)
The visual film poem by world director Jorgen Leth offers a fantastic glimpse under the surface of the “ever bright American smile”. I have seen the film several times and I can recommend it to anyone interested in the American character.

Behind the Fence (d. Marcin Sauter)
I am very fond of observational films, with the director humbly observing anyone or anything. Behind the Fence is just like that; the director is observing a group of children in a limited space. Some of the images are really powerful; I ended up watching the film three times.

Anna, Seven Years on the Frontline (d. Mascha Novikova)
A portrait of Anna Politkovskaya, a murdered Russian journalist. I was interested in the personality of Politkovskaya; that was my reason to watch the film in the first place. I have learned a lot of things from this well-crafted film.

The Mother (d. Pavel Kostomarov, Antoine Cattin)
I have seen this brilliant film at a film festival several years ago. However, the second time I watched the film at the portal was even better than the first time. The fascinating story of a Russian woman with nine children, who is leaving her alcoholic husband to move to the country, is far from being a tearful lamentation; it rather is a perfectly constructed film, not lacking humorous scenes either. The most powerful scene, however, is the one taking place at the train station platform…

Island Belarus (d. Victor Asliuk)
I was happy to discover a Belarusian film at the portal since I have been shooting in Belarus several weeks ago. The director examines life in the country and in the city; the merging of modernity and tradition. I can recommend the film to anyone interested in this country.
