Against the dictatorship of film festivals

Against the dictatorship of film festivals

Zuzana Piussi is not an author who likes to please her audience. Her films are provocative, often made all by herself and even without the help of a cameraman. For her, films are an “inner compulsion”. She has been labelled a heroine, although she does not accept this label and refuses to answer questions about what she is and what she is not afraid of.

About the films
A charge brought against Slovak independent documentarist Zuzana Piussi for an unauthorized use of the footage of judge Helena Kožíková in her documentary reportage entitled DISEASE OF THE THIRD POWER, which focuses on uncovering the faults of the non-functioning Slovak judicial system, initiated a debate about the freedom of speech in Slovakia. Her film KOLIBA is a documentary detective story exploring the fate of Slovakian film. What might look as a portrait of film critic Pavel Branko has been recast by Piussi into an intimate confession in the documentary called HERO OF OUR TIMES. In her film CRYING OF ANGELS, the director shows the conflict of homosexuality with catholic faith in Slovakia.

She wanted to be a priest but became a filmmaker

She wanted to be a priest but became a filmmaker

Viola Ježková exclusively at DAFilms.

The selection of works by Viola Ježková is pervaded with the themes of faith and religion, ranging from The Cowshed where cows represent both the old and new, the worldly and the beyond; through Not Just Standing But Rising Up, an impressive portrait of Old Testament scholar Milan Balabán, showing that God is not a “what” but a “where” (a Way); to the ontological search for a background in My Body's Body, providing a disturbing and dislocated perspective of motherhood connected with contemplation.

Watch her films FOR FREE from November 26. to December 2.

Jørgen Leth and Hamburger in Four Minutes

Jørgen Leth and Hamburger in Four Minutes

Jørgen Leth (born 1937), living legend of world documentary, writer and poet, studied literature and anthropology. In the 1960s, he became a leading personality of Danish poetic modernism and experimental film. In his films, Leth creates film images similarly to a painter. At the beginning, he directs both the characters and the camera; during shooting, he stops “painting” the scenes and becomes an observer of the depicted events. We offer a rigorously selected retrospective of this Danish director most known for example for The Five Obstructions or his last film Erotic Man. Stream FOR FREE from November 13 to 25.
