Dear spectators!

We are more than honored to invite you to the 10th One World Documentary Film Festival in Český Krumlov. We are proud to offer you screenings with English subtitles and after-screening-Q&As translated into English.

Drying rivers, parched fields, and empty wells - climate change is starting to affect even our immediate surroundings. This is one of the reasons why this issue is being discussed by experts, in the media, by politicians, and often even amongst friends at the pub. When William Shakespeare coined the phrase “not till a hot January”, he had no inkling that this phenomenon might actually occur one day. Currently, however, it quite accurately describes one of the main results of climate change – continuously rising temperatures. The increasingly warmer climate in combination with poor soil management has resulted in a landscape that is incapable of retaining water.

Pollution is the main theme of our opening screening - the Canadian film There’s Something in the Water. The well-known actress and activist Ellen Page and the director Ian Daniel visit with women in the agricultural regions of Nova Scotia, who are battling industrial companies in order to save the local landscape, their community and, most importantly, the future.

Our selection of films covers diverse topics. Family is the central theme of Iryna Tsilyk’s The Earth Is Blue As an Orange, a portrait of single mother Anna and her four children living in a warzone in Ukraine.

The Oscar-nominated Honeyland is an internationally recognized documentary about traditional beekeeper Hatidze Muratova. The film looks not only at a disappearing trade in the breathtaking mountain regions of North Macedonia, but is also a powerful parable about the state of our civilization. The poetic and understand yet multilayered film shows what it means to fully internalize the natural order and live in harmony with it.

For Sama is another Oscar-nominated film which tells the dramatic tale of journalist and filmmaker Waad Al-Kateab as she reports on the unending conflict as a witness for her newborn daughter Sama.

As the closing screening we feature Two Roads about The Tap Tap’s musicians and singers from Jedlička’s Institute – people living with various diagnoses as well as diverse personalities and original humor.

We are looking forward to you!
