DOCUMENTARY MONDAYS
un eveniment Centrul Ceh sustinut de Pilsner Urquell

De-a lungul celor 14 ani de existenta Festivalul International de Filme Documentare de la Jihlava, festival competitiv de documentare creative, a devenit cel mai mare eveniment de acest gen din Europa Centrala. Evenimentul este specific datorita atmosferei sale informale, caracterului discutiilor, sprijinului sistematic a filmelor documentare si a activitatilor de publicare. Pe langa premiile acordate de juriu in fiecare an se mai acorda: Premiul Publicului si Premiul pentru Contributia la Cinematografia Mondiala. In acest an Festivalul International de Filme Documentare de la Jihlava s-a desfasurat in perioda 26-31 octombrie. Asemenea editiilor anterioare, in luna decembrie la Centrul Ceh va asteptam cu proiectiile filmelor castigatoare.

Auto*mate, Czech Republic, 2009, 90 min
regia: Martin Marecek
VO: ceha / Subtitrari: engleza

Praga. In zilele noastre. Aerul din oras este irespirabil, trotuarele sunt blocate de masini, pietonii sunt furiosi ca trebuie sa se strecoare printre masini, biciclistii nu-si gasesc locul, iar soferii sunt nervosi ca nu au unde parca. Suna cunoscut, nu?
Acest haos urban, pe care cetatenii il traiesc automat, este tinta filmului care imbina elemente de documentar, animatie, videoclip si home movie. Regizorul Martin Mareček a realizat pe parcursul filmarii ca nu este de ajuns un simplu eseu, cu elementele clasice si cu un public dinainte stiut si a devenit un adevarat activist al organizatiei “Auto*Mat”, pregatit sa faca lobby pe lânga autoritati si politicieni pentru a schimba, realmente, ceva.

ENGLISH VERSION
During the 14 years of its existence, the competition festival of creative documentary film from Jihlava has become the greatest event of its kind in Central Europe. Its traditional motto is “Thinking Through Film!”. The festival is specific for its informal atmosphere, discussion character, systematic support of documentaries as well as publishing activities. Besides the prizes awarded by juries, the Audience Prize and the Contribution to World Cinematography Award are awarded each year.
This year the Jihlava International Documentary Film Festival festival took place between October 26th and 31st in the city of Jihlava. Like after the previous festival editions the Czech Center is going to screen the winning films from the Jihlava Festival.

Auto*mat
Prague. Nowadays. Unbreathable air, tons of cars blocking the sidewalks, angry pedestrians that have to slip between vehicles, angry cyclists that can’t find a place of their own and angry drivers that can’t find any parking spots. Bet it sounds familiar. This urban chaos that citizens live automatically on a daily basis is the target of the movie that combines elements from documentaries, animations, videos and home-made videos. While filming, Director Martin Marecek realized that a simple essay with classical elements and an already known public wouldn’t be enough, so he became an a la lettre activist for the Auto*Mat organization, ready to lobby authorities and politicians in order to really make a change.
