(Fotojatka | 2014 )
Czech version, 210 min
Photographic projections of series made by some of the most noted auhtors in world’s creative and documentary photography in an informal atmosphere of your cinema. Besides the well-known Czech atrists Jan Pohribný, a creator of magical landscapes, and North Bohemian documentarist Ibra Ibrahimovič, this year’s Fotojatka invited a variety of artists awarded at the prestigious World Press Photo contest. Paolo Patrizi’s documentary about the Nigerian migrant sex workers in Italy will be presented alongside Jean-Michel Fauquet’s dark alchemistic still-lifes, Elena Chernyshova’s documentary account of Norilsk – the industrial hell behind Polar Circle, or Peter Bialobrzeski’s photos of the suburbs of modern Asian metropolises which will contrast with two series by the famous “environmental” photographer Chris Jordan. Of course, the festival cannot miss out on humourous or conceptual photography, either – and be prepared for a special feature of shots from the archive of the secret communist State Police which inadvertently captured the grey reality of Prague in 1970s and 1980s.
