The Gleaners and I – Agnès Varda / (1999, FR, 82 min) The queen of modern documentary Agnès Varda takes a closer look at the environment of traditional poor French countryside. How does time flow if not governed by the rhythm of the city?

New Scenes from America – Jørgen Leth / (2002, DE, 35 min) The visual collage by the most renowned Scandinavian documentarist Jørgen Leth is a homage to photographer Robert Frank and painter Edward Hopper as well as an unconventional exploration of the nature of American popular culture.

Nénette – Nicolas Philibert / (2010, FR, 70 min) She is the oldest survivor of the Paris ZOO, yet she was born in Borneo and her age of 40 is considered a natural miracle. Who is she? Nénette, an orangutan who is unique in many respects.

Motherland or Death – Vitalij Manskij / (2011, RU, 99 min) What is life in contemporary Cuba really like? Compare the reporters’ and travellers’ images of the heated island with the critical insight of Russian directing legend Vitaly Mansky.

It happened just before – Anja Salomonowitz / (2005, AU, 72 min) Star of the young generation of filmmakers Anja Salomonowitz makes an unusual directing experiment. She lets the persons involved in illegal trade with women tell the personal stories of their very victims. How far does the blame go?

An Episode in the Life of an Iron Picker – Danis Tanović / (2012, BH, FR, SL, 75 min) Presented in an online premiere, the film by Bosnian director Danis Tanović received the Jury Grand Prix at Berlinale. Will the real story of saving the life of a loved woman win your favour as well? The film is accessible to Czech audiences only.
