Kinečko staff recommends / 13 November

The core of Kinečko film magazine is here again to recommend a couple of films you can’t miss.

 

Eva Križková: The White World According to Daliborek, Kino Lumière (K1), 8 p.m.

I almost didn’t make it through this film. Not because it would be boring. On the contrary. It is far too intense in how directly and intimately it portrays the everyday reality of people we’re not used to meeting and talking to in person. Instead of discussing whether this “portrait of a gentle neo-Nazi” should be considered a true documentary, I recommend spending 105 minutes in a reality I hope you’d never experience otherwise.

 

 

Saša Gabrižová: Kate Plays Christine, Kino Lumière (K2), 8:15 p.m.

Out of today’s programme, I’m picking a documentary again. Kate Plays Christine is a film that has left a deep imprint on my mind. In 1974 news anchor Christine Chubbuck committed suicide during a live television broadcast. As part of a reconstruction and efforts to understand this event, the director Robert Greene is interested in the re-birth of Kate, who is an actress, into the character of Christine. As Pavla Racherová aptly writes in her review, “in a standard production of a feature but often even documentary film, things such as archive footage, newspaper clippings or the costumes tend to be provided in advance rather than witnessed by the viewer. In this film, investigation and discovering are turned into working methods.” While working on his own documentary films, Greene often partners with the American independent filmmaker Alex Ross Perry and writes for Sight & Sound magazine.

The White World According to Daliborek (2017) and its main protagonist – a “gentle neo-Nazi” have prompted a controversial reaction in the Czech Republic. Klusák came across Dalibor on the Internet.

 

We’re slowly nearing the end of the festival and Kinečko has some recommendations for today’s screenings. This time we’re leaving Bratislava and expanding to the nearby cities.

Even today we’re here to recommend where to go and what to see.

The core of Kinečko film magazine is here again to recommend a couple of films you can’t miss.

Even today, the core of Kinečko film magazine has joined forces to bring you a couple of hot tips and recommendations.

 

Due to technical problems during the previous screening of the film HOUSE WITHOUT ROOF (dir.Soleen Yusef), we added a special screening on Sunday, November 12 at 1pm in Kine Lumière K4.

 

Just like yesterday, the core of Kinečko film magazine has come together to bring you a couple of hot tips and recommendations for today.

 

The documentary film directed by Soňa Maletzová is a portrait of Marián Varga, a legend of the Czechoslovak music scene. As many suchlike films, this one too reflects a particularly difficult time in the life of the artist – a different, original, innovative, progressive and controversial musician. Some found his style, artistic and life alike, crazy, whereas others imitated and loved it.

 

This year the renowned Canadian director of experimental, documentary and fiction films Denis Côté comes with his new release A Skin So Soft, combining all these three types of film, although most of all, it can be labelled a documentary. The filmmaker follows a group of bodybuilders throughout their everyday lives, but focuses mainly on various activities related to weight training and working out, their mutual hobbies.
