Documentary Jam Session

jam session

On June 21, the squares of many European cities will resound with music; for the 13th time already, Europe will be celebrating the Music Day which falls upon the “longest day” of the year; the summer solstice. The DAFilms portal joins the music celebrations in its own way, having selected a special collection of “music” documentaries out of its rich offer. From June 18, you can watch (and listen to!) contemporary Czech hip hop in Pavel Abrahám’s Czech Rapublic, singer and multi-instrumentalist Radůza in a portrait by Olga Špátová I Go Where I Want, indigenous singers and dancers in the hypnotic essay Balifilm by Peter Mettler and many others. The films Balifilm, Step across the border and Sonor are available for FREE STREAM during this week.
