Filmotéka - Apríl 2018

Priatelia archívneho filmu,

v apríli sa dožívajú 80 rokov dvaja významní slovenskí režiséri: Dušan Hanák (*30. 4. 1938) a Juraj Jakubisko (*27. 4. 1938). Obaja študovali na pražskej FAMU a v dlhometrážnom hranom filme debutovali v druhej polovici, respektíve koncom 60. rokov 20. storočia. Hanák nakrútil svoj prvý dlhometrážny film 322 (1969) voľne podľa poviedky Jána Johanidesa Potápača priťahujú pramene mora. Ide o psychologický príbeh o chorobe jednotlivca a spoločnosti. V roku 1972 dokončil dlhometrážny dokument Obrazy starého sveta, ktorý si získal – po 17 rokoch v trezore – svetové renomé. Nasledovali Ružové sny (1976) o láske dedinského poštára Jakuba (Juraj Nvota) a cigánky Jolany (Iva Bittová). Film Ja milujem, ty miluješ (1980) bol tiež zakázaný, no na 39. medzinárodnom filmovom festivale v Berlíne v roku 1989 získal Strieborného medveďa za najlepšiu réžiu. Doposiaľ posledným dokončeným Hanákovým dlhometrážnym filmom je dokument Papierové hlavy (1995) o vzťahu občana a moci. Z Jakubiskovej tvorby uvedieme jeho dlhometrážny debut Kristove roky (1967), Zbehov a pútnikov z roku 1968 a prvý diel jeho „trilógie osudu a šťastia“ (ako ju sám nazval) – Vtáčkov, siroty a bláznov (1969). Hoci ešte v roku 1970 nakrúcal Jakubisko film Dovidenia v pekle, priatelia, ten dokončil až po Nežnej revolúcii, v roku 1990. V 70. rokoch mohol nakrúcať len krátkometrážne dokumentárne filmy, k réžii dlhometrážneho hraného filmu sa dostal opäť až v roku 1979 filmom Postav dom, zasaď strom. Pred každým z uvádzaných dlhometrážnych filmov Dušana Hanáka a Juraja Jakubiska premietneme v apríli krátkometrážny film z ich portfólií. Za pomoc pri zostavení blokov venovaných výročiam Dušana Hanáka a Juraja Jakubiska ďakujeme Martinovi Kaňuchovi a Petrovi Michalovičovi.

10. apríla sa dožíva 80 rokov aj teoretik výtvarného umenia a filmu, architekt a scénograf Juraj Mojžiš. Pán Mojžiš vybral svojich „päť srdcoviek“ do cyklu Carte Blanche: Juraj Mojžiš. Zaradil doň dlhometrážny debut enfant terrible francúzskej novej vlny Jeana-Luca Godarda Na konci s dychom,ako aj obraz swingujúceho Londýna vykreslený na pozadí pátrania po záhade jednej fotografie v Zväčšenine Michelangela Antonioniho. Ďalej zvolil film Ela Havettu Slávnosť v botanickej záhrade, ktorý podľa slov autora výberu „je a zostane krásnym príkladom autorského filmu, svedectvom úsilia o čo najuvoľnenejšiu kompozíciu narácie“, a tiež Nebo nad Berlínom Wima Wendersa. Cyklus uzatvára československo-francúzska koprodukcia z dielne Alaina Robbe-Grilleta Muž, ktorý luže. Ako hovorí pán Mojžiš, tento film „nám ponúkne zároveň s provokatívnym pohľadom na identitu (anti)hrdinu ako hýbateľa príbehu aj príležitosť uvažovať o estetike nového románu, zrejme posledného dôsledného avantgardného gesta moderného umenia“. Juraj Mojžiš osobne uvedie projekciu posledného menovaného filmu. Aj touto cestou chceme pánovi Mojžišovi popriať všetko najlepšie k jeho jubileu a poďakovať mu za zostavenie cyklu.

V apríli sa dožíva 85 rokov režisér a kameraman Rudolf Ferko (*17. 4. 1933). Filmová historička Eva Filová pri tejto príležitosti zostavila pásmo krátkometrážnych dokumentárnych a spravodajských filmov Výročia: Rudolf Ferko. Pásmom krátkometrážnych animovaných filmov Výročia: Helena Slavíková-Rabarová si pripomenieme aj 75. narodeniny dramaturgičky, scenáristky a režisérky Heleny Slavíkovej-Rabarovej (*3. 3. 1943). Obaja jubilanti sa zúčastnia na projekciách svojich výročných pásiem. Pri príležitosti 60. narodenín producenta Rudolfa Biermana (*20. 4. 1958) uvedieme dva filmy Martina Šulíka, ktoré Bierman produkoval: Všetko čo mám rád Záhradu.

Významný britský režisér, jeden z popredných predstaviteľov tzv. free cinema Lindsay Anderson sa narodil 17. apríla 1923. Pri príležitosti jeho nedožitých 95. narodenín uvedieme filmy Ten športový život Keby... – na druhom menovanom spolupracoval s českým kameramanom Miroslavom Ondříčkom. 29. apríla sa dožíva 80 rokov aj český režisér a scenárista Hynek Bočan. Vo FILMOTÉKE uvedieme jeho film Pasťák, ktorý nakrúcal už v roku 1968, no nemohol ho dokončiť. Definitívna verzia vznikla až v roku 1989 a do kín bola uvedená o rok neskôr.

Profesor Rudolf Urc pripravil v rámci cyklu Očami filmových spravodajcov pásmo Ulice, mesto, hrad, ktoré je venované obrazom Bratislavy v spravodajskom týždenníku Týždeň vo filme. Eva Filová pokračuje v uvádzaní cyklu Kraťasy z archívu: Kino Čas a v bloku nazvanom Ako sme oddychovali sa zamerala na závodné rekreácie, vzácne dovolenky v zahraničí a domácke či komunitné koníčky vrátane obľúbeného chatárčenia. V cykle Double Bill uvedieme filmy Spalovač mrtvol Juraja Herza a Mefisto Istvána Szabóa o dvoch mužoch, ktorí sa usilujú realizovať svoje sny v temných časoch nastupujúceho nacizmu. V cykle Otec a syn uvedieme mimoriadne rôznorodé filmy: Chlapec na bicykli belgického režisérskeho súrodeneckého tandemu Jeana-Pierra a Luca Dardennovcov, Revenant: Zmŕtvychvstanie, ktorý nakrútilmexický režisér Alejandro González Iñárritu, a napokon oscarového Saulovho syna Lászlóa Némesa. Aprílovým majstrovským dielom francúzskej kinematografie je film Clauda Sauteta César a Rosalie s Yvesom Montandom a Romy Schneiderovou v hlavných úlohách. V cykle Filmová hudba uvedieme film Vtedy na západe, ku ktorému skomponoval hudbu taliansky skladateľ Ennio Morricone.

Dúfame, že si z nášho aprílového programu vyberiete.

Cremator

Spalovač mrtvol; Juraj Herz, 1968, versions: OR : ces

This adaptation of a 1967 novel by Ladislav Fuks is regarded as one of director Juraj Herz’s greatest films. The dark and absurdist story, which utilises elements of the psychologically grotesque, represents one of many 1960s works by author Fuks that deal with issues of Jewish identity and alienation in a brutal world. These also include Pan Theodor Mundstock (Mr. Theodore Mundstock); Variace pro temnou strunu (Variations for a Dark String); and Myši Natálie Mooshabrové (The Mice of Natalia Mooshabr). The protagonist in Spalovač mrtvol (The Cremator, 1969) is 1930s crematorium worker Karel Kopfrkingl, who loves his work and family – in fact, he loves them so much, that he decides to kill his wife and two children in a loving and professional way, since under the new Nazi ideology, Kopfrkingl’s mother-in-law, who is of “non-Aryan” origins, and the entire “miserable” family, have no right to exist. Kopfrkingl denounces his friends and colleagues to the Gestapo and takes part in a campaign against the Jews. The kind-hearted and dutiful man is being transformed into a psychopathic murderer by the ascendant ideology of Nazism – and paradoxically, by an essentially peaceful, though misappropriated Buddhist philosophy… The outstanding qualities of the film are largely down to the performance of the man cast to portray Kopfrkingl, Rudolf Hrušínský. In one of his greatest roles, Hrušínský masterfully plays an ordinary man, inconspicuously transforming into a psychopathic monster. Vlasta Chramostová plays Karel’s wife, in one of her final on-screen roles – she was later blacklisted by the communist authorities for signing the Charter 77 initiative… The film’s mix of black comedy and its vivid evocation of German expressionism makes The Cremator one of the most important films of the Czechoslovak New Wave. Cinematographer Stanislav Milota – who closely collaborated with the 40-year-old Herz in staging the film – also makes a great contribution to the motion picture's aesthetic; the elegant black and white photography representing one of Milota’s greatest efforts. The film suffered a somewhat dramatic fate: it was entered into contention for the Academy Awards, but failed to be short-listed. Almost immediately after its March 1969 premiere, the film was banned from Czechoslovak cinemas. It was only re-released in August 1990. Show more

Paper Heads + short film: The mass

Papierové hlavy; Dušan Hanák, 1995, versions: OR : deu, rus, slk

“I think that we are unable to deal with our own past. Paper Heads is a reflection on freedom and lack of freedom. It talks about the relationship between the citizen and power and the lack of respect for human rights in the Czechoslovakia of 1945–1989. The film takes place in the framework of street theatre. The conclusion extends these happening motives by contemporary reflections of our times. The structure of the film is built around key events of the past regime and archive footage is applied in shortened, paradoxical and even humorous ways. In the testimonies I looked for the people’s concrete human and universal dimensions in order to combine them in an emotional picture of man in socialist society.” Dušan Hanák Show more
