Ecce Ach Maco

Director: Tomáš Vaďura .
The Macocha Abyss is the biggest abyss of its kind in the Czech Republic and even in the Central Europe. It depth of 138m was a great challenge for both of the B.A.S.E. jumpers, Martin Trdla and Robin Kaleta. There was more than the jump which requires technical proficiency, there was the aim to show how easy and difficult it is to get prepared. At first sight it seems all the legal restrictions were broken for the humble thirst for fame and popularity, to be seen in a film. However, the jumpers wanted to point at absurdity of some rules and obstructions. The feature connecting the document to other ones by Jumps, o.s., the wish to lead nonspecialist audience through the backgrounds of B.A.S.E. While filming the unconventional documentary there were no fatal or other injuries to any members of the team, no harm to property private or state, and all the team behaved extremely carefully to protect the nature.

Director: Václav Marhoul.
There is only a very thin line between heroism and cowardice. Courage is the will power, which no man has enough to spare. If used, it is soon exhausted. Courage is the capital, which we spend gradually. Thus, the last order may be the order to pay out the account drawing to zero. The deepest fear rises when a man is floundered by a current, all alone, having nothing to hold on and not being able to cope. This is the main topic and the artistic motto of this wartime psychological drama. North Africa, II. WW, Fall 1941. Jiri Pospichal, twenty years old, signs up as a volunteer in the Czechoslovak army. His naive ideas about heroism are rawly confronted with the hell of the African desert, complicated relationships in his unit and the ubiquitous threat of death. All this takes its cruel toll in the shape of his gradual loss of self respect and courage. He is full of self-confidence and patriotic ideals, yet at the same time is deeply frustrated by his father, whom he views as a collaborator. His closest companion is a Jewish soldier, Jan Lieberman, in many ways more mature. Their opposite, in turn, is Corporal Kohák, a former member of the French Foreign Legion, for whom warfare is above all a profession The psychological drama between these three characters, the differing attitudes and personalities of each of them, are, during the course of the story and most clearly in its dramatic climax, brought into confrontation with a clear and harsh test of the moral character of all. The plot of the film is freely based on the classic American novel “The Red Badge of Courage” by Stephen Crane, first published in New York in 1897.

Exploring Wroclaw, Poland

  by Sandy Mandelberger, Online Dailies Editor To the untrained ear, Wroclaw, Poland, the site of the ERA NEW HORIZONS International Film Festival, is generally mispronounced as "ro-claw". I've been learning to offer the correct pronunciation, which is more like "rotz-vav". The former German city known as Breslau has been on-again and off-again part of the Polish empire for centuries. It is now a major economic and cultural center for the modern state of Polan...

Thoughts on Berlinale 2008 Expanded Forum

For cineastes and critics, the Berlin International Film Festival, or Berlinale, is a frequent target of criticism, since it is argued that the official competition has become subverted by commercialism, that politics drives the final selection in the official competition, or that Dieter Kosslick’s craving for media attention prevails. Thus the chorus of nay sayers grew more intense this year. After all, having the Rolling Stones, Madonna, and Sharukh Khan on the red carpet and bestowing the ...
