On Wednesday at ZagrebDox don't miss documentaries from the international and regional competition, and State of Affairs, Retrospective of Croatian Musical Documentaries, Teen Dox and ADU Dox programmes.
Beside the second ZagrebDoXXL event, Does the War Ever End?, scheduled for 7pm, theatre 4 that includes the screening of the Laurent Bécue-Renard's Of Men and War and the accompanying discussion, Wednesday brings many titles from the international and regional competition, and State of Affairs, Retrospective of Croatian Musical Documentaries, Teen Dox and ADU Dox programmes.
At 4pm, theatre 2 shows the film How We Entered Europe: SexA Case, in which director Ines Pletikos reconstructs the lives of the cult dark noise SexA band members in the Retrospective of Croatian Musical Documentaries. A Q&A session with the author follows. At 5pm, theatre 1, two Teen
Dox films are scheduled. The Dutch Who the Fuck Is Jett Rebel is a story about the teenage celebrity Jett Rebel who, like many people his age, wanted fame but did not count on its ugly side. The film will be presented by its director Linda Hakeboom. From Finland we present a playful film essay about modernity versus tradition, Santra and the Talking Trees, directed by Miia Tervo. In the film the director meets Santra, an old lady called ‘a living connection with the ancient culture’ by Finnish language teachers. ADU Dox at 5pm, theatre 4, features a premiere of the film Here Comes the Train, by Igor Husak, a student of directing, and so far unseen films by formers students: To the Last Breath (1989) by Vinko Grubišić, inspired by Dziga Vertov’s Cinema Eye manifesto and Children of Bacchus (1988) by Nadia Geras. At 7pm, theatre 1, Factumentaries present the premiere of the new experimental-documentary film by Davor Kanjir, Limb, a topographic study of an urban limbo and a hypnotic, meditative journey across the space of Croatian metropolis.
At 8pm, regional competition features the German-Hungarian doc Drifter, the best debut film at last year’s IDFA. The protagonist is a young rebel from a poor Hungarian village. The screening will be accompanied by a Q&A session with director Gábor Hörcher. At the same time, in theatres 3 and 5, two international competition films are scheduled. Don’t Breathe by Nino Kirtadze is a subtle comedy about a man trying to get a diagnosis in the hellish Georgian hospitals and find out what is wrong with him, and the German Städtebewohner, directed by Thomas Heise, is a story about the daily life in a juvenile correctional facility San Fernando in Mexico City. Both films will be presented by their authors and after the screenings they will participate in Q&A sessions. At 11pm, theatre 4, there is a documentary from the State of Affairs section, Project Wild Thing, directed by David Bond. The director, concerned about the future of his children who spend most of their time staring at the computer, decides to turn nature into an attractive brand.
