Collective Loss of Memory by DOT504 @ Be Festival
Place five men in a confined space, where masculinity is championed and a virulent type of group phenomena can take hold, in this case with a brutal outcome.The influence on each other when in a group can have a profound and irrational effect on a human’s thinking. A powerful, humorous and shocking show, dripping in sweat, that questions our sense of individuality. Double award winners at last year’s Czech Dance Platform Festival, the show is directed and choreographed by Jozef Fruček & Linda Kapetanea who also conceived the Fighting Monkey concept and touring workshops.
Masterclass with Helena Třeštíková
Helena Třeštíková speaks on her impressive career in non-fiction film making, and offers invaluable insight into time-lapse documentary, long term filmmaking, and interaction between filmmakers and film subjects. Třeštíková is a Czech filmmaker who specialises in time-lapse character studies. Her camera follows her protagonists over the course of several years, even decades, and from this she creates intimate portraits of their lives. One of the first to put documentary in Czech cinema, we are delighted to welcome Helena to talk about her filmmaking methods and her role in shaping new visions for Czech filmmaking.
