Cinematherapy by Ivan Vojnar

A commercial aired on Czech Television invited viewers to attend a casting and tell their stories. Later on, eleven of them underwent cinematherapy – provided by the camera as an intermediary between them and the outside world. Blurring the lines between feature film, documentary and reality show, the film lets the participants witness their often bizarre lives and thus move forward in dealing with their issues.

CINEMATHERAPY - Ivan Vojnar, Czech Republic 2010, 108 mins, screen 2

Living in the age of reality TV, in a society hungry for sensation, it is easy to feed on the highly emotional stories of people whose futures are being shaped by dozens of professionals. "Cinematherapy" takes a slightly different approach. A commercial aired on Czech Television invited viewers to attend a casting and tell their stories. Later on, eleven of them underwent cinematherapy – provided by the camera as an intermediary between them and the outside world. Blurring the lines between feature film, documentary and reality show, the film does not offer the participants a plastic surgery or a reunion with a long lost friend but lets them witness their often bizarre lives and thus move forward in dealing with their issues.

This screening is supported by Pilsner Urquell.


The event is kindly supported by the Embassy of the Czech Republic, Pilsner Urquell and Techo.
