One World online

During the pandemic, we strive to ensure that documentaries reach as many viewers as possible. We have therefore created One World Online – a year-round platform on which you will find selected documentaries from the last eleven editions of the One World Festival. 

From April 3 to 17, you will also find there the twenty most significant films of this year's festival. 

So even if you decide not to go to the cinema, you won't be deprived of the latest human rights documenteary films. You can watch movies on One World Online at any time from anywhere in the Czech Republic.  

Those marked as “English friendly” have English subtitles.

Foundation Pit

A fascinating montage of online videos where ordinary Russians beg Putin for help. Amusing scenes of people in their living rooms shot in various corners of this complicated country shift to emotionally crippling moments of hopelessness for the protagonists who are at the mercy of their dysfunctional state. This unusual format not only has momentum, but above all it has a lot to say about the situation in Russia.

Partička vegetí na vyhřátém písku někde v poušti. Kolem se povalují platové kelímky.

Raving Iran

How do rave parties even work in a place like Iran where this form of entertainment (and others like it) are harshly censored? Find out first-hand when the film's heroes take you on a wild ride to a secret party in the desert and on a dramatic journey to attend a festival in Europe. You'll also become so enthralled by the film's title track that it will be stuck in your head for hours.

Hustý týpek v bílém tričku něco vysvětluje.

Požár v pralese a hasiči stojící v plamenech a snaží se ho uhasit. Všude je dým a plameny.


Czech documentary filmmaker Martin Trabalík travelled to Bolivia to capture the efforts of volunteer firefighters to prevent the burning of the Chiquitano forest. Despite the efforts of environmentalists, this tropical dry forest is still suffering in the name of industrial and agricultural interests. If the film Incendios had an impact on you, you can contribute to the FCBC – Foundation for the Conservation of the Chiquitano Forest. Since 1999, this foundation tries to protect this tropical dry forest on many levels.

Vyprahlá cesta v horském údolí. V popředí běloch ve formálním oblečení u automobilu, oslněný sluncem přivírá oko. Vzadu přichází po cestě muž a dítě.
