Chiar si dupa 60 de ani de la sfarsitul celui de-al doilea razboi mondial, efectele acestuia sunt inca resimtite de societatea contemporana. Atat institutii publice cat si simplii oameni incearca sa depaseasca prejudecatile sau problemele aparute odata cu razboiul.
“Gestures of Reconciliation” este un concurs international de scurt-metraje, initiat in 2005 de catre Goethe Institut, in colaborare cu “Remembrance and Future”.
Studenti la film sau arte din 8 tari est-europene (Belarus, Cehia, Estonia, Letonia, Lituania, Polonia, Rusia si Ucraina), din Israel, Germania si Statele Unite ale Americii, au prezentat in filmele lor gesturi de reconciliere, din perspective foarte diferite – pe plan politic, civic, religios, interuman, stiintific sau chiar artistic.
Cu ajutorul Institutului Goethe, am realizat o selectie formata din 30 din filmele de la competitie, pentru a vi le prezenta in ultima joi a lunii septembrie.

ENGLISH VERSION

Sixty years after the end of the Second World War, with all the crimes and devastation that resulted from it, the effects are still being felt even in our present-day society. However, today we are also experiencing the diverse efforts being made on the part of the political institutions and the people themselves to achieve understanding and reconciliation.
Goethe-Institut initiated in cooperation with the „Remembrance and Future“ fund in 2005 precisely 60 years after the end of World War II a short film competition with this theme. Students of film and the fine arts from 8 eastern European countries (Belarus, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Russia and the Ukraine), from Israel, Germany and the United States have broached the issue of reconciliation in individual exposes, in order to find different images for them within an open and creative process.

As a special program, the Goethe-Institut presents together with the Czech Cultural Center, 30 short winning films realized within the film competition „Gestures of Reconciliation“.
