We invite you to our annual Prešeren Holiday film screening event with the Slovenian Film Database and the Slovenian Film Center.
This year, the celebration is especially joyful, as two recipients of The Prešeren Award are from the ranks of filmmakers. Multimedia artist Ema Kugler is the recipient of the Prešeren Lifetime Achievement Award, while director and screenwriter Matevž Luzar is the recipient of the Prešeren Foundation Award.
We will screen online the feature films Man with a Shadow (2019) directed by Emma Kugler and Good to Go (2012) directed by Matevž Luzar.
Man with a Shadow, Ema Kugler, 2019, Slovenia, 100'
Humans’ biggest delusion is their illusion of freedom. New-borns have no choice, they are brought into this world regardless of their will, groomed as utterly powerless beings to submit to the social norms imposed by those in the position of power… But what if there is an alternative?
Good to Go, Matevž Luzar, 2012, Slovenia, 100'
He is a grumpy old man with no passion for life. He buys himself a plot in a graveyard with an unrivalled view of the Alps and then he checks into a retirement home to wait for his death in peace. However, the exact opposite happens, for the first time in his life, Ivan starts to actually live.
