Kinečko staff recommends / 15 November

 

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.

 

 

Eva Križková: Sami Blood, Kino Záhoran – Malacky, 7 p.m.

 

This incredibly mature debut of the young Swedish director Amanda Kernell shocks by pointing at how many different faces of racism there are. In one of her interviews, the director said one of the main reasons why she’s making films is to feel less lonely. This formally chilling drama is a great example of how a film can assist at opening various personal, family as well as social taboos and thus become a tool for real and liberating communication. The fourteen year-old Sami girl Elle Marja is far from being the only one afraid to admit who she really is…

 

 

 

 

Saša Gabrižová: My Life as a Courgette, Kino Záhoran – Malacky, 10 p.m., Kino Mier – Senec, 5 p.m.

 

Animated films like My Life as a Courgette are very important as they fight against stereotypes, prejudices or speak about such topics as death, family break-ups and loneliness, in children’s films for (not so) obvious reasons often marginalised. There’s no need to point out that Courgette is a film for children and adults alike. The story with no additional sentiment done with stop-motion animation features vivid characters and boasts a beautiful handwriting. The film was nominated for last year’s LUX Prize, awarded annually by the European Parliament.

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.

Zuzana Golianová asked Jean-Marc Barr 10 questions.

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.
