The screening of Other Visions CZ 2019 will take place on Monday, 20th January 2020 at 6 pm in the Ponrepo cinema in Prague.
The curator, architect and writer Laura Amann was the curator of the selection of ten works of the Other Visions CZ competition at last year's PAF Olomouc 2019.
In short, there are several options, from trying to introduce a ‘rational’ and ‘objective’ evaluation system to a somewhat embarrassing application of the thematic curatorial concept, but perhaps the fairest solution is to use both, if at least somewhat possible. We would like to cordially invite you to a film tour of ten different islands, interconnected in many ways. Together they create a portrait of the society, albeit fragmented, that deals with the fundamental issues of our time, be it technology, the environment, gender or more. They provide sense to our emotions, psyche, or personal needs, which are part of an eternal puzzle and a journey from inner to outer worlds, a journey you are invited to see and evaluate through certain points of view.
The International Jury Award, awarded by Matt Carter, Zh Fevek and Erika Balsom, was given to Zbyšek Semelka for Advertising the Earth Radio — Stephen P. McGreevy’s VLF Cut-outs video. The Audience Award went to the BCAAsystem’s team for No~one Is an Island.
The screening will be introduced by Sylva Poláková together with the authors of the videos, who will partake in a discussion at the end.
