Documentary Positions

ZAPLYV, 2015

The UdK’s film institute presents new monographies by graduates of the Art and Media program. In his documentary GONE, Jin Xingzheng accompanies two families in a run-down, nearly abandoned village in the remote province of Central Zhejiang in Eastern china, the left-behind losers of modernity who are struggling to survive. Yalda Afsah's and Ginan Seidl's documentary short BOY is the portrait of a 13-year-old girl who grows up as a boy in Masar-e-Scharif/Afghanistan, a film about roles determined by society and the fight for self-determination. Kristina Paustian’s experimental documentary ZAPLYV examines the life of a drop-out commune in Russia. The film won the Arte Documentary Film Prize at the Duisburger Filmwoche. Marta Popivoda shows her installation MASS ORNAMENT #1. WATCH OUT FOR GORILLAS IN YOUR MIDST! in the foyer – a complex reflection on mass events in the last years of Yugoslavia. Attended by the filmmakers. (ta) (30.4.)
