15. GDFF: day one

31-st May 2017

We’re beginning the 15th Gdańsk DocFilm Festival at the European Solidarity Centre as early as at 2.00 PM with a screening of “Little Bucharest” (dir. Sam Geyskens), which is one of the competition films. Then, we’ll see Anna Wiśniewska’s road movie, with its main character, the Szczecin composer Piotr Klimek. After the next documentary “My Daughter Nora” there will be a teleconference with its director, Jasna Krajinovic. Just after the Q&A we’ll screen an experimental project “Methane Ghosts” (dir. William Randall). It explores human impact on the environment. At 4.30 PM the audience will see “Borderline Miracles” by Tomasz Jurkiewicz. The image is a story of Wiesław Koneczny who failed to appear at a mine one day and it was the very day when a fatal accident happened at his workstation. Aleksandra Marchenko’s documentary “Mirrored Mountains. Altay” is the last competition picture to be presented today. All the GDFF viewers are welcome to the Festival Opening Ceremony at 7.00 PM. After the official part, we’ll watch two fantastic non-competition films. The 2017 Hungarian Oscar winner “Sing” is a vanguard of the festival’s new element – a review of short fiction films, which next year will become a competition. A screening of the European Film Award Nominee “Mr. Gaga” is going to be the highlight of the evening. It is a story of a genius choreographer, Ohad Naharin, who has been the head of Batsheva Dance Company, the most famous contemporary dance theatre from Israel.
