February: Documentary Time Travel

Řecko

After the film-packed beginning of the year, we at DAFilms do not slack off, keeping our fast online pace and preparing a documentary probe into the recent history of our days as well as the early history of the days of cinema. Keep your eyes wide open; a rich documentary February is coming!

Which European country has been undergoing the most turbulent political transformation in the past few days? Where have the words economic crisis and debt become the most frequent part of the vocabulary? Watch the films 155 SOLD and THE PRISM and follow the political and economic turnabouts experienced in the past few years by the Greek society. Do not miss the weekly event To the Bottom of Debt from February 9 to 15 for free.

For the 22nd time in history, the roar of the Czech Lion will reverberate through the documentary world, perhaps along with the surprised cry of the happy winners of the major Czech award. Which of the five nominated documentaries will receive the sparkly statuette? Watch all five candidates online in the week from February 16 to 22 and vote for your favourite at www.dafilms.com! What’s it gonna be; the winner of Jihlava IDFF INTO THE CLOUDS WE GAZE or the popular OLGA?

The earliest archive cinema meets online viewers again! Discover the short Czech films from the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s which became a popular film format at their time. Thanks to our cooperation with the National Film Archive in Prague, you can watch five archive films that have become part of the unique film event Atoms of Eternity from February 23 to March 8 for free. You can also look forward to an exclusive interview about the making of the project!

Did you miss some of the films from the first world online retrospective of Victor Kossakovsky? Do not forget that they are still available in our catalogue; as a bonus, you can watch the latest film master class the director gave in a packed Prague cinema hall on January 23 for free. If one master class is not enough for you, be inspired by other filmmakers such as Werner Herzog and Sergei Loznitsa.
