19.00 Inventura presents
Zdenek Bina in concert
Entrance: 100 Kč
Traditionally the opening night of the festival presents the year’s newest films from, for and about people with learning disabilities. Meet the most terrible Danish terrorist Teddy; discover what’s new in British short films. Travel through a psychedelic hell and end up in heaven while watching a video accompaniment to the Mejla Hlavsa song Houby (better known as Muchomůrky bílé by Tony Duchacek & Garage) which was produced in Inventura’s film workshop. And to reduce the temptation to get high on psychedelic stimulants, we have Zdenek Bina, who doesn’t need 5 nor 123 minutes to win over the whole hall with his singing and guitar. And not to forget food for the audience; SIMPaticka kavarna believe the way to the heart is through the stomach and will be providing refreshments all evening.
19.00 Sexy evening with the authors and protagonists of documentary A Lure From Meadows and Doubravanek in concert.
Entrance films and debate: 80 Kč / Entrance for whole evening: 120 Kč
A Lure From Meadows
(Die Heide ruft/ Mirjam Mirwald/ 2007/Germany/60 min/German version)
21.30 Doubravanek – Concert
The films which are being shown tonight are all similar that they break down stereotypes in ways that may well make some of us blush. The members of vocal/instrumental group Doubravanek do exactly the same thing, but in a musical way, though instead of changing colour, those of us of weaker disposition should count on strained stomach muscles instead.
19:00 Tribute to Adam Elliot: Max and Mary, Harvie Krumpet
