Zázraky a nadprirodzené úkazy sa dejú na celom svete. Na Slovensku napríklad existuje muž, ktorý chytá blesky do špeciálnych zariadení, ktoré si sám zhotovil. O takýchto mužoch je aj dokumentárny film Jany Minárikovej 25 km2, ktorý získal na festivale v Hamburgu Grand Prix.

25 km2

Disappearing Old World is a documentary about an expedition to one of the most dangerous African rivers – the River Omo. Rafting down the river, the members of the expeditions were passing tribal territories of the Body, Bata, Bume, and others. Some members already visited Ethiopia for the third time; therefore, they could compare the changes in the life of the tribes, who had led a primitive way of life just a few decades ago. In addition, the documentary shows the part of Ethiopia that will disappear under the surface of a new dam lake in a couple of years.

Disappearing Old World

Documentary Cinema World tells us story of one of the last village cinemas in Slovakia. Real life stories and memories of local villagers give us a look into history of this cinema and show us its importance. Not only has the viewer an oportunity to be a witness of the cinema"s celebration in the memories of people, but he can also witness the closure of this cultural village temple. Even though the cinema was a significant part of the village for over half of the century, villagers will have to give it their last goodbye. The trigger in this scenario is the digitalization of cinemas in Slovakia. Village Očová decided not to take a part in this action. Unfortunatelly, this means sending their cinema straight to execution. Will the last goodbye carry the smell of sadness or pride? That is the question.


Life is a big ball that we have to push up a steep hill. All it takes it a single slip to set the ball rolling back down, leaving us with no other option but to start from the bottom again... „Sisyphus“ is a portrait of a former drug addict who has moved to a little house in the country, away from civilization, and spends his time making orgiami in the loft. Sometimes art is the easiest way to start from scratch.


Arsy-Versy is the life story of a mother and her son Lubos, who turned the world upside down. Lubos escaped the world of people to live symbiotically with nature. He flew away to a planet where only butterflies live – intelligent beings. Lubos invested his life’s energy combined with his unbelievable empathy into his amateur photograph and film creations. His greatest fascination with nature was the unique study of bats. He attempted to maximize the understanding between human and animal by expressing his fascination for this upside down being. His biggest support in his wanderings, as well as in all areas of his life, was his mother. Lubos’ mother, however, is 70 years old and worries about the future of her son. “What will happen with that kid?” she asks. People who ‘knew him’ thought Lubos was crazy, but only until they saw the film upside down. Now they feel like the crazy ones!
