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.



Made In CZ/SK is one of Bratislava IFF loadbearing sections. In connection with the recent one-hundredth anniversary of the formation of the First Czechoslovak Republic, the section reflects a continuous and successful filmmaking cooperation of the two neighbouring countries. This year’s selection will present several recent films, some of which also originated in Czech-Slovak co-production.

The 20th edition of the Bratislava International Film Festival will open its doors in less than one month. The days between 29 November and 2 December 2018 will offer a generous selection of quality titles made by the best of young contemporary cinema. The Bratislava city cinemas Lumière and Mladosť will welcome the audience with a pleasant atmosphere and bring innovative perspectives on the world and being in it.

Another section of the Bratislava IFF programme will comprise three films nominated for the LUX Prize 2018, which has been awarded by the European Parliament since 2007. Its goal is to popularize original European film production and incite the EU citizens to discuss European values and identity. After last year’s success the festival will present LUX Prize films not only in Bratislava, but in three cinemas outside of the capital as well; Kino Mier in Modra, Kino Záhoran in Malacky and Artkino Metro in Trenčín. 


On Tuesday 14th November in kino Lumière were announced the winners of 19th Bratislava IFF. Festival continues in kino Mladost, MIER in Modra, Mier in Senec and Zahoran in Malacky. 



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.
