Iranian Film Festival 2018

18. - 20.1.2018

„Byť sám sebou vo svete, ktorý sa z vás neustále snaží urobiť niekoho iného, je najväčší úspech.“ R. W. Emerson

Práve v tom spočíva podstata festivalu IRÁN:CI – dať priestor znamenitej tvorbe umelcov, ktorí sa nesnažia zmeniť len preto, aby „zapadli“.

Pohybujú sa mimo dosahu radarov, ktoré sledujú, čo je práve „v kurze“ a čo je „dôležité“. Odvracajú sa od inštitucionalizovaného poňatia filmu a venujú sa iba takému umeniu, ktoré je absolútne úprimné voči divákom.

Rozprávajú príbehy nádeje, pochybností, lásky a zúfalstva, ktoré si sami prežili. Prehovárajú hlasom, ktorý prenikne len k tomu, kto k nim pristupuje s otvoreným srdcom. Vydajte sa medzi nich. Otvorte svoje srdcia. Vypnite radary. Vstúpte na cudzie územie. Pripojte sa k nim.

Nemajte strach!

Každý skvelý film v nás nenápadne, ale zato zásadne čosi zmení. Žiadna iná forma umenia nepreniká do nášho vedomia tak ako film.

Tak tu ho máte - náš znamenitý program celovečerných, dokumentárnych a krátkych filmov.

Ich režisérmi sú hviezdy iránskej kinematografie. Predvedú vám dokonalo zvládnuté remeslo a zavedú vás do sveta hrdinov, ktorí pátrajú po svojej minulosti, hľadajú svetlo, ktoré dávno vyhaslo. A pokúšajú sa nájsť k sebe navzájom cestu.
