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.
