IRON SKY FILM FESTIVAL
16-17 November 2019 | The Hague
"What is objectionable, what is dangerous about extremists is not that they are extreme, but that they are intolerant. The evil is not what they say about their cause, but what they say about their opponents."
Robert F. Kennedy
MORE THAN A FILM FESTIVAL
The goal of the second season of Iron Sky Film Festival is to bring people together who care about the fight against far-right extremism. We show movies that inspire debate and offer a friendly environment for open discussion.
When the war comes (Keď príde vojna)
documentary puts into forefront a middle-class teenager Peter who rebels against the established structures in Slovakia by forming a paramilitary group with fascist inclinations. The movie reflects on the rise of the group's popularity while authorities turn a blind eye on their activities.
Directed by by: Jan Gerbert
Teaching War (Výchova k válce)
This documentary can be considered not only to be a message about how easily people allow themselves to be manipulated into a state of paranoia by the media, but also a warning against the possibility that extremism will become a part of the regular school curriculum.
Directed by by: Adéla Komrzýová
Czech Allah (Český Allah)
is a story-driven time-lapse documentary of Zuzana Piussi which explores the impact of the refugee simulacrum on the collective imagination and real society. While the Czech Republic only accepted a very small number of refugees, the immigration wave awakens xenophobic and anti-Islamist feels of the society.
Directed by: Zuzana Piussi
against Czechs (Česi proti Čechúm)
movie is presented as a personal diary of the director. It reflects on xenophobe attitudes of Czechs towards Roma population and offers solutions to notoriously problematic cohabitation between two ethnic groups.
Directed by: Tomáš Kratochvíl
