Film According to Helena Třeštíková

Saturday
1.8.2015

This year’s cycle of Masterclasses was concluded by the Czech documentarist Helena Třeštíková, an author of the closing SFS film Mallory. She revealed the viewers that the selection of her heroes is fairly based on how much they are “filmogenic“. The characters should be as authentic in front of the camera as in their everyday lives. When someone asked whether she’d ever tried to draw herself closer to her heroes by using any drug, she answered: “I haven’t tried pervitine, but if I should ever become addicted it would be the painkillers.” She also mentioned her financial problems related to making the time-lapsing documentaries. “But I’ve just won 117 crowns in the Czech lottery, so I might be well-off now!”


 

SFS Is Over

Saturday
1.8.2015

“For many of us didn’t attend the opening ceremony, I would like to replay it again.” With these words, Jožka Kubánik opened the closing ceremony of the 41. Summer Film School edition and sung the same special song. Radana Korená officially terminated the festival and together with Iva Hejlíčková presented the last AČFK Annual Prize to Helena Třeštíková. “I am in fact a product of a film club. I used to spend there all my pocket money and got to the idea of becoming a film director. So, viva la film clubs!” said the Czech documentarist Helena Třeštíková. A screening of her latest film Mallory came after.


 

Pre-premiere of a New Greenaway

Friday
31.7.2015

“Bear in minds you’re the first elite viewers of this film. And if you like it, spread it further to maintain the power of information until November,” challenged the senior programmer Jan Jílek during the introduction of the Czech pre-premiere of Eisenstein in Guanajuato. Due to AČFK, the film is going to the official Czech film distribution this autumn. Many of us had a chance to see the film backdrops last year, when the famous British film director Peter Greenaway brought some of the filmmaking paintings to exhibit at the SFS Uherské Hradiště.


 

Hungarian War Mockery

Friday
31.7.2015

A 1965 comedy The Corporal and the Others aims at the period of the chaotic end of the WWII. With irony and absurd humour it captures the transfer of the front lines and usual turning the coats. “This mockery was paradoxically one of the first Hungarian films that reflected the Second World War. Since then, the explicit depiction of war has become a taboo,” said during her introduction Štěpánka Ištvánková. The film watches a crazy charade of a cunning corporal Molnar, who senses the chance to get the most out of the situation. “This film has been very popular in Hungary,” said Ištvánková.


 

Pulp Dreams Factory

Friday
31.7.2015

“You might be surprised by the B movies action heroes and the serious many-times-awarded actors being at one stage.” After having screened the company’s promotional spot from the late 1980s, these words opened Jiří Flígl’s lecture Cannon Films – Chandlers Who Love Film. “All this is Cannon Films – Superman next to the ballet genius Mikhail Baryshnikov.” This basically summarized the main principles of this plup dreams factory, as Flígl calls it. The following presentation disclosed the birth of the company, its rise to fame and the final downfall.

Thursday
30.7.2015


Michael Málek, programmer at the Czech television, was awarded AČFK Annual Prize for his long-time collaboration with film clubs and SFS. “I would like to thank the Association and people who like film,” said Málek after he had received the prize from the SFS director and AČFK chairman Radana Korená, and a flower with kiss from the SFS programme director Iva Hejlíčková. He then went to give introduction to Welles’s Trial. Those who stayed in Hvězda cinema had a chance to see the premiere of a digitally restored version of The Deadly Invention.


 

Digitalization of Czech Film Heritage

Thursday
30.7.2015

The delegates of the National Film Archive explained the viewer the process of the digital restoration of our film heritage. The ongoing project, which includes digitalization of fourteen Czech films, is aimed at providing the current generation with access to classical films. Tereza Frodlová from NFA admits certain ethical issues: “We strive to observe the original image as close as possible, even with some of the imperfections. We don’t want correct or enhance the authorial works.”


 

Discussion with Ludmila Zemanová

Thursday
30.7.2015


Karel Zeman‘s daughter, Ludmila Zemanová, who is a writer, illustrator and author of animated films, presented SFS audience with the work of her father and with her own projects. She was hanging about the film ateliers since her childhood, later on she took part in father’s production. Her short animation Lord of the Sky was made in emigration and drew inspiration from old Native American legends. “My father was so worried that I wouldn’t get to film in Canada and he was so happy when he heard that I could have made films,” said Ludmila Zemanová. Besides film, she was busy with book illustrations. Her trilogy The Epic of Gilgamesh won many prestigious awards and half a million of the books were bought by the Mexican state and included into the national educational programme. “My father used to say that there were lots of illustrators but few filmmakers. When I showed him my books he broke into tears. He finally understood I had to make my own things as well,” added Zemanová.
