The winner of the first Slovakian moving image competition Other Visions SK 2016 is András Cséfalvay with his video New Horizons II.
The award ceremony took place on Friday February 24th 2017 within the film seminar 4 živly in Banská Štiavnica following the decision of the expert jury composed of Martin Kollár (SK, Svätopluk Mikyta (SK) and Martin Mazanec (CZ). „The string of dialogues comprising centuries-long reflections on occupancy of Pluto, as introduced by the artist András Cséfalvy, is a dreamy depiction of the world of rendered Copernicus, Charon or Pluto. We regard the video New Horizons II. as a piece of art, within which the gravitas and complexity of the story is coupled with a formal play retrieving not only the artificial world of theatre and film, but also the gallery space," the members of the jury commented on their decision.
