    A dýchejte klidně Andið eðlilega
    Directed by: Ísold Uggadóttir
    Iceland, 2018, 100min.

    While Lára, a single mother with a drug history, struggles with her oppressive situation in life, Adja is attempting illegally to get to her daughter into Canada via Iceland. When the two women’s lives intersect at passport control, neither of them realises to what extent coincidence will influence their future. A socio-critical drama which won Sundance’s Directing Award.

    Akumulátor 1 Akumulátor 1
    Directed by: Jan Svěrák
    Czech Republic, 1994, 102min.

    In this unusual action sci-fi comedy a secret parallel reality exists behind the television screen – some sort of world “behind the mirror” filled with corresponding images of us that siphon off our strength. Sheepish outsider Olda is going to have to battle his vigorously demanding double – with the remote slung pretty damn low around his waist. World premiere of the remastered version.

    All That Jazz All That Jazz
    Directed by: Bob Fosse
    USA, 1979, 123min.

    Jan Mattlach presents

    Within a decade Bob Fosse shot two musicals that choreographically and musically reinvented the form of the genre, interconnecting an intricate storyline and the protagonists’ no less complicated inner worlds with musical dance passages. The autobiographical drama of a creator obsessed with his work, awarded the 1980 Palme d’Or at Cannes, was with fitting alacrity dubbed the musical equivalent of Fellini’s drama .

    Amal Amal
    Directed by: Mohamed Siam
    Egypt / Lebanon / France / Germany / Norway / Denmark / Qatar, 2017, 83min.

    This long-term observational portrait of teenager Amal takes us to post-revolution Egypt. The turbulent fate of the country is also reflected in the vague gender role of the protagonist, an intrepid street protest leader and devoted daughter obliged to find her way through the intricacies of an Arab society undergoing precipitous transformation.

    Amir Amir
    Directed by: Nima Eghlima
    Iran, 2018, 106min.

    Now in his thirties, Amir is beleaguered by other peoples’ problems. His friend Ali’s ex-wife and son have gone missing, his sister is desperately trying to break away from the family, and his parents are trying to keep the family together. Amir is a film about contemporary Iran, about a generation whose private lives are determined more by the rules of society than by their own will.

    Antigravitace Antigravitacija
    Directed by: Audrius Stonys
    Lithuania, 1995, 20min.

    Audrius Stonys’ Antigravitation is a continuation of the new poetic cinema of the “break generation.” Silence is a common feature in all the documentaries of this school. Symbolically, it represents the silence of freedom in the wake of the uproar of independence rallies.

    Apolinaras Apolinaras
    Directed by: Henrikas Šablevičius
    Lithuania, 1973, 10min.

    When Henrikas Šablevičius started filming Lithuanian “oddballs” he invented a bizarre new genre of documentary biopic. Characteristic of these portraits is a sense of mocking irony directed not at their subjects but at the “Soviet hero” genre. The subject of this film is Apolinaras, a kindhearted policeman who even outwardly looks very unlike the ideological “guardian of morals.”

    Directed by: Makoto Nagahisa
    Japan, 2016, 27min.

    One summer day, 400 goldfish were found in the swimming pool of a secondary school. This is the story of the four 15-year-old girls who put them in there. Grand Prix in the International Competition at the 2018 Prague Short Film Festival.

    Atlantida, 2003 Atlantída, 2003
    Directed by: Michal Blaško
    Slovak Republic / Czech Republic, 2017, 30min.

    It’s 2003, four years before Slovakia becomes part of the Schengen Area. Atlantis, 2003 provides a chilling excursion to a recent past we should not forget, but it also asks a universal question: How responsible are we for each other? The Best Film Award in the National Competition at the 2018 Prague Short Film Festival.

    Až na konce světa Les confins du monde
    Directed by: Guillaume Nicloux
    France / China / Belgium, 2017, 103min.

    Indochina, 1945. Young French soldier Robert Tassen (Gaspard Ulliel) sets out on a frantic mission whose goal is to find and punish Vietnamese General Vo Binh, instigator of the massacre that saw Robert’s brother brutally slain. This powerful, dark probe into the depths of a soldier’s soul comes from one of the most versatile of French directors (e.g. The Kidnapping of Michel Houellebecq).

    Až přijde válka Až přijde válka
    Directed by: Jan Gebert
    Czech Republic / Croatia, 2018, 76min.

    “We’ll become legends of our time,” states one of the members of the Slovak Recruits paramilitary group, which puts young people through inhumane drills and aims to “defend and preserve the nation”. Jan Gebert’s documentary, screened at the Berlinale, observes a youngster with authoritarian inclinations, part of a growing nationalism in unexpected age groups.
