Streda (18.05.2016)

17:00–17:30 Incident na hranici / Határeset (maďarský dokumentárny film, réžia: Péter Szalay, 2006, 27 minút)
V auguste 1989 mali Kurt-Werner Schulz, Gondula Schafitel a ich šesťročný syn, ktorí žili vo Weimare v NDR, namierené cez Maďarsko na Západ. Aj oni – rovnako ako mnohí ich krajania – plánovali tajne prekročiť štátnu hranicu, ale v trojici nemali šancu dosiahnuť svoj cieľ. Pred očami sa nám odvíja príbeh spracovaný na spôsob kriminálky, v ktorom nechýbajú ani prvky humoru.

17:45–18:40 ’89 z mesiaca na mesiac / ’89 hónapról hónapra (maďarský dokumentárny film, réžia: László B. Révész, 1999, 53 minút)
Seriál ’89 z mesiaca na mesiac bol natočený v roku 1999 a mapuje udalosti prevratného roku 1989, ktorý priniesol Maďarsku zmenu režimu. Využíva pôvodné materiály a úryvky z archívov nadácie Fekete Doboz Alapítvány, Maďarskej televízie a spravodajstva. Časť o januárových udalostiach približuje vzrušujúce domáce a zahraničné dianie v období považovanom aj za rok naozajstného prevratu. Súčasťou filmu je interview s Károlyom Grószom v Davose, v ktorom generálny tajomník strany reaguje na vyjadrenie straníckeho politika Imreho Pozsgaya, ktorý udalosti v roku 1956 nazval ľudovým povstaním.

od 18:40 Beseda s režisérom Ernőom Nagyom a s historikom Miklósom Mitrovitsom


Dátum: 19. máj 2016
Miesto: Poľský inštitút v Bratislave
Štvrtok (19.05.2016)

17:00–17:30 „Takto volám ja, syn poľskej zeme…“ Poľská Solidarita / „Így kiáltok én, lengyel föld fia…“ (maďarský dokumentárny film, réžia: Ernő Nagy, 2010, 27 minút)
Film vznikol v Gdansku v čase osláv 30. výročia vzniku poľského hnutia Solidarita. Archívne zábery a spomínanie účastníkov (Bogdan Borusewicz, Zbigniew Romaszewski) pomáhajú divákovi pochopiť, čo sa prečo udialo v Poľsku v roku 1980. Medzitým môžeme sledovať nádherné zábery z koncertu a osláv organizovaných v miestnych lodeniciach. Film približuje poľské udalosti z maďarského uhla pohľadu, čím prispieva k posilňovaniu poľsko-maďarského priateľstva.

17:30–18:30 Generácia ’89 / Pokolenie ’89  (poľský dokumentárny film, réžia: Maria Zmarz-Koczanowicz, 2002, 61 minút)
Dokumentárny portrét s názvom Generácia ’89 približuje tzv. generáciu „veľkej zmeny“, generáciu, ktorá svoje dospelé roky už prežívala v „tretej republike“. Dnešných päťdesiatnikov, ktorí sa narodili okolo roku 1968 a v roku 1989 ešte väčšinou študovali, zasiahla zmena režimu na univerzitách. Sú prví, ktorí už mohli samostatne rozhodovať o svojej budúcnosti. Zostať v školských laviciach? Založiť nezávislé médiá alebo neziskové organizácie? Rozbehnúť vlastný biznis či priemyselné odvetvie (napr. reklamný priemysel)? Zúčastňovať sa na politickom živote? Dekomunizovať tajné služby? Pohľad na predstaviteľov generácie ’89, na ich úspechy a nezdary, obavy a nádeje, cez ktoré film predstavuje uplynulých dvadsať rokov poľskej slobody.

18.45–19:45 Holky z fildy (český dokumentárny film, réžia: Natasha Dudinski a Taťána Marková, 2009, 70 minút)
Jediným riešením je osobná revolúcia. Film Holky z fildy rozpráva príbeh štyroch českých žien, príslušníčok generácie ’89. V roku 1989 študovali všetky štyri filozofiu v Prahe a aktívne sa zúčastňovali na dramatickej Nežnej revolúcii, ktorá skoncovala s komunistickým režimom. Prostredníctvom ich životných osudov film predstavuje dedičstvo revolúcie po dvadsiatich rokoch. Jana Hybášková je poslankyňou Európskeho parlamentu a chce zachrániť svet. Alena Ježková píše jednu knihu za druhou a inšpiráciu, ktorú v slobodnej, ale chaotickej prítomnosti nenachádza, hľadá v minulosti. Alice Rahmanová je úspešná, hoci uzavretá žena, ktorá väčšinu energie venuje výchove troch vlastných detí a jedného adoptovaného dievčatka. A Pavla Milcová zasvätila celý život svojmu hudobnému a spirituálnemu poslaniu. Čo zostalo z revolučných ideí? Cez koľké revolúcie musí prejsť žena, kým dovŕši štyridsiatku? A čo prezradí ich príbeh o mieste a čase, v ktorom žijú?

od 19:45 Beseda s historikom Jurajom Marušiakom a s režisérkou Taťánou Markovou

The Hungarian translation of the book Havel: A life by Michael Žantovský is to release by HVG Publishing House on 28th November 2014. It is an honour to announce that the International Documentary Film Festival PAREVO 2.0 will present the book for the first time and the audience have the great opportunity to buy the book at the opening ceremony of the event. We shall note that the closing film of the documentary film festival is also connected to the legendary figure of the Czech anti-communist opposition, the first president of Czechoslovakia and later Czech Republic (Citizen Havel, directed by Pavel Koutecký and Miroslav Janek, 120 min, 2008). Welcome everybody!

HavelAbout the book

The Velvet Revolution in Prague broke out 25 years ago on 17th November 1989. The significance of the revolution is fully recognized during the process of a -more or less – gentle and non-violent power transition in our region. Due to his charismatic personality, his chief position at Charter 77 and his unbroken faith in in the vulnerable, Václav Havel became a key figure in the success of the revolution.

Havel is considered the most outstanding figure of the 20th century: an iconoclastic intellectual, a well-known playwright who turned out to be an imprisoned political and human right activist. As the last president of Czechoslovakia, then the first president of Czech Republic, not only did he urge reconciliation within the frontiers but also he encouraged to build good relations with the neighbours.

“Those who were fighting sanguinary with revenge are now terrified of us. Although, they have nothing to be afraid of. We are not like them, we are different” – said once in a speech following the victory of the revolution.

Michael Žantovský was one of Havel’s closest friends, having met in the democratic opposition under Communism. During Havel’s early years in office Žantovský was his press secretary, advisor, and political director, and their friendship endured until Havel’s death in 2011. A rare witness to this most extraordinary life, Žantovský presents a revelatory portrait—up close and personal—of this giant among men and the turbulent times through which he prevailed Currently Žantovsky is the delegated ambassador of the British Royal Court in Czech Republic and he is the president of the Aspen Institute in Prague. Beside his political and external action service, he is a remarkable author and an active Czech translator of numerous contemporary British and American writers.

Recommendations

The Havel autobiography by Michael Žantovský has so far been the most comprehensive work on Havel’s career and life. Regardless all the contradictions around his fugure, Havel’s name cannot be eliminated from the list of the Czech national heroes. There’s no need to lower our register when determining his role, Havel -in a particular way – was a true hero of independence. If you are interested in the history of 20th century East-Central-Europe, the shaping of a close culture, it is an imperative for you to read this book.

György Varga literary translator , former ambassador of Prague

Many times president Havel and I discussed the Beneš decrees, which for the Czech meant exclusively the deployment of the Germans. I told to Havel that even we- the Hungarians- were deported in line with these decrees. He said this case was urgent and the resolution could not be delayed. He also appointed me to set up an expert committee that could manage to solve the problem in no time. What a character! When something clashed with his moral values, Havel did not hesitate to take actions. He told directly what he thought and dared to take steps.

Péter Hunčík, psychiatrist, Havel’s advisor 1990 – 1992

I first encountered with Havel forty years ago. I can remember his friendly smile, his deep murmuring voice and his special meditative sense of humour. In my eyes, he was a manifestation of perspicacious and liable European politics. It happened not only once that Havel and I signed a mutual statement and I trusted his judgement. An inner voice always reminded me “if he thinks it is the right way, then I must believe him”.
