We are happy to announce that we are going to produce a documentary about our project! The movie, made in cooperation with the Institute of National Remembrance in Slovakia, will show the workshop process, including the emotions, opinions and reactions happening in the backstage. It will be directed by Daniel Dluhý, a rising star of Slovak non-fiction film (you can find his bio below).
The premiere will take place during the multi-genre Freedom Festival (Festival Slobody) on 8 November 2016.
Director Daniel Dluhý comes from Kežmarok, Slovakia. He studied documentary directing at the Film and Television Faculty of the Academy of Performing Arts in Bratislava. He completed the bachelor’s degree under the supervision of Robert Kirchhoff and Jaroslav Vojtek. In 2011 – 2012 he studied documentary filmmaking at FAMU, Prague. Nowadays he continues his master’s degree in Bratislava under the supervision of Peter Kerekes. In his work, he always tries to be close to the individual, whether the protagonist of the film or the viewer. His student film The Village Vicary about a young priest Ján Záhradník, working in a purely Roma village Lomnička in Eastern Slovakia was broadcasted by Slovak television in 2012.
Director’s assistant Juliana Gubisova is a photographer and historian. She works at the Institute of National Remembrance in Slovakia with Freedom Festival. During her studies she specialized in modern history, with a special emphasis on socialism in Slovakia.
