ERNESTÝNKA. ŽIVOT JE LABYRINT

Saturday, 27 October, 9.30 am, main auditorium

Ernestýnka. Život je labyrint, díl z minidokumentární série o mladých dívkách se zajímavým posláním, koníčkem či osudem. Ernestýnce je dvanáct a vyrůstá ve střídavé péči svých rodičů. Není v tom sama, střídání domovů s ní absolvuje také její osmiletý bratr Adrian. Rozhodla se navštívit psychoterapeutku a zahrát svým spolužákům divadlo, aby jí lépe pochopili a snad i víc vzali mezi sebe. Ernestýnka miluje snění, vodu, stromy a víly. Toho všeho by se ale klidně vzdala, kdyby jí to pomohlo k nalezení lepší cesty k ostatním i k sobě samotné. Podaří se jí to někdy? Režie Theodora Remundová, ČR 2017, 14 min.

 

Frantisek of His Own Kind

František’s exactitude is given a lighter touch by the spoken commentary, which focuses on little details, and the explanatory approach we know from traditional documentaries on nature. Directed by Jan Gogola, Jr., Czech Republic, 2014, 26 min.
