Documentary films in a gallery? KineDok at
MeetFactory promises remarkable experiences
29 September, Praha
– Screenings of the latest documentary movies thematically connected with current exhibitions and complemented with
Q&A sessions with artists and filmmakers of the selected artworks and
movies. This is the new collaborative project of the centre of contemporary art MeetFactory and
KineDok, the alternative distribution platform focusing on documentary films,
starting from October 2016.
However, KineDok at MeetFactory doesn't aim at becoming
yet another ordinary cinema. “Screenings
in the gallery spaces will be complemented with curator-guided tours of current
exhibitions or follow-up Q&A sessions with artists and filmmakers or
protagonists of the screened movies,” explains Šárka Maroušková, MeetFactory PR Manager.

on October 5th with a Latvian movie My Father the Banker in which the director describes a dramatic life story of her father, university
professor and later a wealthy banker, who was found by Interpol 18 years after
escaping from Latvia in a Malaysian mental asylum. Before the screening will
take place a guided tour of exhibition Laughter
and Forgetting, which explores the malleability of memory, pain of
laughter, the interrelationship between the public and private lives and the
deception of human relationships. The screening will be complemented
with a follow-up discussion with the filmmaker Ieva Ozolina.
On Tuesday 1st November there will be a
screening of a Polish-German documentary by Elwira Niewiera and Piotr
Rosołowski titled Domino Effect about
the great love story from Black Sea marked by the shadow of the Russian power.
