Space Travel, Dissent & Youth
A commissioned programme from Anna Galkina, Hana Janeckova and Julia Tcharfas
This mini-season, commissioned by Cinema6, aims to address different modes of translation practices in cinema, with particular emphasis placed upon how experiments with translation interweave with fantasies, ambitions and dreams, re-enacted in the world of film.
This commission looks at translation as a vehicle for moving between geographical, cultural and metaphorical spheres. Three Experiments in Translation will consider translation as not only a socially and politically directed activity based in language, but as a way of negotiating subjective and collective identity in cinema and in society.
The first of this season will be An Evening with Čaroděj OZ: Wizardly Films for the People organised by Hana Janeckova on Friday 16 May.
