The 20th-anniversary edition of the One World Film Festival (aka the International Human Rights Documentary Film Festival) in Slovakia will be opened by the latest feature by Slovakian documentarian Zuzana Piussi, The State Capture (see the news). In it, Piussi aims to reflect on “the mechanism used by the oligarchy and the mafia to blackmail key players in the system, to influence public perception, and to penetrate police, the judiciary and the government”.

The State Capture has been programmed in the Social Situation and Political Regimes section, which, along with the Interpersonal Relations, Technological Development and Ecology sections, constitutes a subtopic to the central theme, Lost in the Present. “During this year’s birthday celebrations full of high-quality cinematography, not only through the Slovakian titles on screen but also through various discussions, we look back at the past to move smoothly into the present, and then reflect on the ‘here and now’ and our future,” say the organisers, adding: “Thirty years have passed since the Velvet Revolution, and it is time to discuss how our history has affected us – what we took from it, what we have learnt from it, what we have forgotten and what we have overlooked.”

A number of domestic films will vie for the festival’s award in the competition section. Among the competing titles are Peter Kerekes’ latest project, BATAstories [+lee también:
