Týždeň slovenského filmu 2017

3. - 9. apríl 2017

Týždeň slovenského filmu prekvapí bohatým programom a známymi hosťami


Týždeň slovenského filmu prinesie bratislavským divákom kolekciu minuloročných domácich titulov pohromade na jednom mieste a umožní dohnať resty, ktoré sa filmovým fanúšikom mohli vlani nazbierať. Počas siedmich dní, medzi 3. a 9. aprílom 2017, ponúkne takmer tri desiatky celovečerných filmov a niekoľko krátkometrážnych snímok. Súčasťou prehliadky bude aj tento rok odovzdávanie národnej filmovej ceny Slnko v sieti, slovenskej obdoby Českých levov či amerických Oscarov.
 
V ponuke Týždňa slovenského filmu nájdete hrané, dokumentárne aj animované snímky, viaceré ovenčené prestížnymi cenami zo svetových festivalov. Niektoré z uvádzaných titulov vznikli výhradne v slovenskej produkcii, ďalšie v koprodukcii s niektorým zo susedných štátov, najčastejšie s Českou republikou. Svoje diela prídu osobne uviesť mnohí tvorcovia, v kine Lumière sa budete môcť každý deň stretnúť a diskutovať s filmármi „spoza kamery“, s hereckými hviezdami, ale aj s odborníkmi na viaceré z tém, ktorým sa filmy venujú. Po skončení podujatia v Bratislave si budú môcť Ozveny Týždňa slovenského filmu vychutnať v priebehu apríla a mája diváci v Banskej Bystrici, Bytči, Kežmarku, Košiciach, Martine, Spišskej Novej Vsi, Trnave a Žiline.
 
Okrem prezentácie domácej filmovej tvorby pripravujú organizátori v duchu tohtoročného motta „Spoznaj slovenský film!“ aj bohatý sprievodný program. Na obľúbenom kvíze Múdreho pondelka si budete môcť otestovať znalosť slovenskej kinematografie, trojica odborných diskusií vám umožní vedomosti rozšíriť a konfrontovať svoj názor s názormi odborníkov na hranú, dokumentárnu aj animovanú tvorbu. Diskusie, podobne ako celý filmový a sprievodný program prehliadky, sú otvorené širokej verejnosti.
 
Spoločenským vrcholom sedemdňového podujatia bude odovzdávanie národných filmových cien Slnko v sieti, ktoré je ďalším z dôkazov, že slovenskej kinematografii sa darí. Ešte pred pár rokmi odovzdávala akadémia ocenenia najlepším filmom a filmárom raz za dva roky, vlani však zmenila periodicitu a Slnká v sieti udeľuje každoročne. Tento rok akademici vyberajú spomedzi rovnej dvadsiatky prihlásených titulov, spomedzi ktorých je 9 celovečerných hraných a 11 celovečerných dokumentárnych filmov. V kategórii animovanej tvorby sa neprihlásil dostatočný počet filmov, v súlade so štatútom Slnka v sieti v nej preto cena nebude udelená. Nominácie v ostatných kategóriách vyhlási Slovenská filmová a televízna akadémia 7. marca 2017, slávnostný galavečer odovzdávania ocenení sa bude konať o mesiac neskôr, 7. apríla 2017 v Starej tržnici a v priamom prenose ho na Jednotke odvysiela RTVS.

Abandoned Space

Opuštěný vesmír; Peter Hledík, 2015, OV (sk, cz; Peter Hledík, 2015, versions: OR

What awaits us after death remains a mystery, even though we doggedly seek an answer. Does this question even make sense? This documentary is about death and dying and about two (im)possibilities of life after death. In the first view, we take a look at current scientific knowledge which does not exclude some form of endurance for the human substance even after physical death. In the second one, we look into the author’s personal experience with the death of a beloved and at how well-known personalities in the art-world cope with mortality. Show more

The World Economic Forum in 2014 described and statistically documented a number of key global issues that indicate a critical and disruptive social phenomena. Among them is the deteriorating position of representative democracy, consisting in the loss of confidence in elected representatives of the people and of the mechanisms and processes that precede the election. As shown in the chart compiled SEF for the last half-century, this trend is steadily deteriorating, the acceleration took place after the crisis in 2008, when the entire Western world mass expressed distrust of the people in the ability of the political class to solve the ensuing crisis. The film explores the phenomenon against the background of Slovakia's presidential election - examines the candidate, voters and electoral mechanisms in the heart of Central Europe. source: http://www.aic.sk Show more

Zlatá lýra 1. diel: Roky nádeje; Peter Hledík, 58´, 2015, OV | Týždeň slovenského filmu; Peter Hledík, 2015, versions: OR

Desaťdielny dokumentárny cyklus o medzinárodnom festivale populárnej piesne Bratislavská lýra, ktorý ovplyvnil nielen dianie na tejto scéne, ale aj vývoj populárnej hudby v Československu od roku 1966 až po Nežnú revolúciu. Počas 30-tich rokov svojej existencie nielenže upriamil pozornosť na malú krajinu v srdci Európy, ale stal sa pýchou medzinárodného združenia festivalov populárnej hudby združených vo Federation of International Festivals Organization. Od svojho vzniku v roku 1966 bol v socialistickom Československu vždy akýmsi závanom slobody, keďže na ňom účinkovali nielen najlepší československí interpreti, ale aj celý rad zahraničných hviezd prvej veľkosti ako boli Josefine Baker, Cliff Richard, Gilbert Bécaud, Mireille Mathieu, Sandy Shaw, Drupi, Stevie Wonder, Amanda Lear alebo Joe Cocker. Hoci sa počas svojej existencie festival nevyhol ideologickým vplyvom, politickým zásahom, finančnému podhodnoteniu, technickým a technologickým nedostatkom či rozdielnym pohľadom na samotnú populárnu hudbu vplyvom rôznych naturelov dvoch národností, napriek tomu bol štartom pre viaceré generácie autorov a interpretov. Víťazstvom alebo upútaním pozornosti na festivale sa súťažiacim zmenil život doslova z večera do rána. V cykle účinkuje takmer 200 osobností zo sveta česko-slovenskej aj zahraničnej hudobnej scény a je v ňom použité veľké množstvo unikátneho archívneho materiálu, v ktorom sú zachytené spevácke vystúpenia domácich a svetových hviezd, zákulisie organizácie festivalu, no zaujímavý je aj presah do súčasnosti a pohľad organizátorov, interpretov a autorov s odstupom mnohých rokov. Cyklus však nie je iba sumárom udalostí, ktoré sa viažu výlučne k festivalu. Tvorcovia si dali za cieľ ukázať, ako na charakter festivalu a jeho jednotlivých ročníkov vplývala celková spoločenská a politická situácia, ako jeho tvár formovali udalosti i konkrétni jednotlivci, medzi ktorých patril aj slovenský fotograf svetového mena Dežo Hoffman. Popri výpovediach známych osobností – organizátorov, spevákov, skladateľov a textárov, pracovali tvorcovia aj s veľkým množstvom filmového archívneho materiálu, fotografiami, bulletinmi, zápisnicami. Práce na tvorbe samotného cyklu trvali viac ako tri roky, avšak kompletizácia informácií trvala takmer 10 rokov. Použité archívne materiály pochádzajú z archívov Slovenskej a Českej televízie, Slovenského filmového ústavu, Národného archívu SR a sú doplnené o rozhovory s pamätníkmi festivalu či zvukové záznamy z archívu Slovenského rozhlasu.

I, Olga Hepnarová

Já, Olga Hepnarová; Petr Kazda, Tomáš Weinreb, 105´, 2016, OV (cz) + AT ; Tomáš Weinreb, Petr Kazda, 2016, versions: OR , CV , ES

Olga Hepnarova was a young, lonely lesbian outsider from a coldhearted family who couldn't play the part society desired of her. Her paranoid self-examination and inability to connect with other people eventually drove her over the edge of humanity when she was only twenty-two years old. The film shows the human being behind the mass murderer without glorifying or downplaying the terrible crime she committed. Guided by her letters we delve into Olga's psyche and witness the worsening of her loneliness and alienation as we reconstruct the events that led up to her disastrous actions. Evil is part of being human. Although the story is set in the 1970ies, young people worldwide today still face problems of not belonging, being different, and being bullied because of race, gender or sexual orientation.
