Occupation 1968


Okupácia 1968, r. E. Moskvina, L. Dombrovszky, M. Szymkow, M. E. Scheidt, S. Komandarev, SK/CZ/PL/HU/BG, 2018; 130 min.; sk, cz, pl, hu, bg, de, ru / sk tit,

A documentary project about August 1968 is a collective subjective view on soldiers of the “allied” armies, on the occupation of Czechoslovakia in August 1968, and on the role the soldiers played in it. The main question is how a “small fry” behaves in the face of a “big story”. What role do their personal responsibility, personal point of view or morals play, and what happens when they have to choose between saving one’s life and obeying orders?

Off Season


Po sezóne, r. Andrea Kalinová, SK, 2018; 35 min.; sk / en sub,

A documentary about one of the most remarkable buildings of the 20th century – the abandoned Machnáč Sanatorium in Trenčianske Teplice spa town. The constructivist building was once an ode to progress, the architect’s materialized vision of humanism. The architect demonstrated in it his own ideas on technical and social progress, and thus built a symbol of a modern society. Today it is just a modernistic ruin of utopia, a transoceanic cruiser that shipwrecked in a spa park. The owners are not interested in maintaining a building which is not paying. The film is dedicated to the phenomenon of this extraordinary building through people who haven’t give up their efforts to save the Machnáč.
