Alpha: 06. und 07.04. / 12.00 am

For the first time, goEast looks at the current works of directors who took part in past student film competitions. Work by former entrant Ivona Juka (2004 with SMECE / GARBAGE), for example, can be seen in this year’s documentary competition. And last year, Anna Melikjan presented her feature MARS in competition. How has the young talent developed? Let’s raise the curtain for:

CZECH REPUBLIC 2004 / 35MM / COLOR / 87 MIN / OV W. GERMAN ST / DIRECTOR: Vit Klusak, Filip Remunda
This documentary casts a witty and provocative eye on the effects of increasing consumer activity in a post-Communist society. Both directors create a gigantic advertising campaign for a product that does not even exist, thereby revealing the manipulative powers of the market economy. The film won the FIPRESCI Prize in Ljubljana, among others, and was voted best Czech documentary at Jihlava. Filip Remunda took part in the student film competition at the first goEast-Festival in 2001 with his documentary HILARY A CHRIS NA CESTE / HILARY AND CHRIS ON THE WAY. He was a student at the State Academy of Performing Arts, Film and Television Department – FAMU in Prague.
