From 15 February to 6 April, ten films will be screened from the 2022 Verzió Film Festival's program at the Blinken OSA Archive.
The audience can watch again the Audience Award winner of the 19th Verzió, The Killing of a Journalist, about the assassination of the Slovak investigative journalist Ján Kuciák. Several Hungarian documentaries that were popular at the festival will be screened: It Has Passed, and It's Fine, Howling Like We Do, KIM, and Holy Dilemma; after each Hungarian film the filmmakers will be present too.
On 16 March, there will be a unique opportunity to see one of the most extraordinary films of the past year, All That Breathes, a documentary that tells the story of two Indian brothers who save black kites with stunning imagery. The film was awarded at Sundance and Cannes in 2022 and was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Documentary in 2023.
Fragments of Paradise, a film about the life and work of Lithuanian-born American independent filmmaker Jonas Mekas, will be screened at the end of March. The film won the Best Documentary Award last year in Venice.
Mekas' diary film, Reminiscences of a Journey to Lithuania, was screened at Verzión in 2019.
Each screening will be accompanied by a discussion and will take place on Wednesdays.
The screenings are free of charge, but registration is required by filling out this form.
