You'll be the first to see it: premieres at One World

It looks like this year there will be one celebration after another. After all, One World will be presenting 23 premieres!

Five of them are world premieres, so you will be the first audience to ever see the film. Director Alexandre Dereims will be on hand to present his new documentary We Are Humanity about the Jarawa tribe in the Andaman Islands. They face expulsion from paradise as their resource-rich environment attracts poachers, tourists and developers. The premiere will take place on Tuesday, 7 March at 19:30 in the large auditorium of the Lucerna Cinema.

Another new film is Grab and Run about the Kyrgyz tradition of men abducting young girls and forcing them to marry. Director Roser Corella shows that it is not a deeply rooted tradition, but rather a boorish habit established during the Soviet era. The world premiere, at which the filmmaker will be present, will take place at the Ponrepo Cinema on Tuesday, 7 March at 20:00.

In the documentary I'm Not Afarid you will be witnesses to the first assisted suicide of a psychiatric patient in the Netherlands. The protagonist does not suffer from a terminal illness, so it is difficult for the authorities to allow euthanasia. The film will be introduced in Prague by special guests, including the director Fadi Hindash and producer Marek Jancovic, and you will have the opportunity to meet the actual hero of the film, the psychiatrist Frederik Polak, who accompanied his patient on her journey to death over the course of 15 years. The premiere will be held on 11 March at 19:00 in the large auditorium of the Atlas Cinema.

There will also be two Czech films shown in world premiere. Epidemic of Freedom by director Tereza Reichová and her husband Hynek Reich Štětka focus on the topic of child vaccination and will no doubt inspire passionate debate. And don't miss the world premiere on Thursday, 9 March at 19:00 in the large auditorium of the Lucerna Cinema, at which the filmmakers will be present.

The premiere of Kateřina Hager's documentary Children Online will be held on Tuesday, 7 March at 19:30 in Kino 35. The film is about the pitfalls of the internet environment in which today's children spend a significant part of their lives. This screening will be equipped with audio description for the blind and visually impaired and special subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing.

And it doesn't end with world premieres. The festival will present another 12 documentaries in international premiere, such as The Giant is Falling by director Rehad Desai, who previously won the Vaclav Havel Jury Award for his film Miners Shot Down.

Five films will be screened in European premiere (Joe's Violin, Ovarian Psychos, I am What I am Not, Cyberjihad, Prison Sisters) and A Hole in the Head by Robert Kirchhoff will be presented in distribution premiere.

Tickets for the premieres are on sale, but keep in mind that numbers are limited.
