It is all too easy to judge these boys and label them as extremists in a far away country. The power of this extraordinarily intimate film, in my opinion, is how it can spark an important dialogue about how and why all kinds of people develop these sentiments in the first place.
Selected by: Ben Terwel, Music curator

We Are Public’s Front Row introduces you to Peter, a charismatic boy from a middle-class family, with a nice girlfriend and a good diploma. In his free time, however, he recruits his friends to prepare for an upcoming war with immigrants by playing with guns in the forest. Terrifying? Or innocent nationalism? An exception? Or a growing phenomenon?

Peter and his ideals deserve more than aversion. That is why we invited Katarína Gališinová, a socially engaged photographer and film aficionado, born in Slovakia. The film gave her goosebumps, and she is very happy to explain why prior to the film. About the conservative culture of Slovakia, but also it’s progressive developments. The artistic aspects of the film, as well as the ethical dilemmas of the director. The absence of a voice-over and judgement, as well as it’s complex implications.

After the film there is room for discussion in the café of Humanity House. The introduction will be in English and the film will have English subtitles.

In Art We Trust

We Are Public will keep investing in arts and culture. Now more than ever! That is why our membership will work a little differently for the time being:

✔️ Every month our curators will select 15 makers
✔️ Our main focus will be on independent makers, who have been hit hard by the current circumstances. Makers we think are brilliant and want to enable to keep working. Makers who we want to list in our programme again when the time comes.
✔️ As a member you are able to heart makers on our website to express your support.
This month we will distribute € 35.000 between 15 makers.

Join us. We need your art-loving heart!
