One World festival under slogan “Who fights”

Alexandru Solomon, director of One World Festival, told a press conference that the event will be held under the slogan “Who fights,” a combination between cinema and “a sort of fight for human rights,” saying they wanted to open it to other forms of expression. At the press conference held on Tuesday at the Czech Center in Bucharest, there were present among others Rena Kubasek, director of the cultural institution, Thorsten Geissler, director of the Law Programme South-East Europe of Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung, and filmmaker Vlad Petri. The seventh documentary festival One World Romania takes place between March 17 and 23 in Bucharest.
The festival has five main sections, “After 25 years,” “Rebel with a cause,” “The crooked state,” “Media clinic” and “Love is a man’s right, too.” The festival also presents the “Retrospective One World Romania 2014,” a section devoted to filmmaker Marcel Lozinski, where ten of his movies will be screened. The section “After 25 years” includes six recent documentaries which revisit the communist era, a quarter of a century later, but also includes five Romanian short movies created between 1963 and 1983 at the Sahia studio. The section “Rebels with a cause” brings to attention examples of unconventional activism in the former Soviet space, but also two Romanian movies presented for the first time: “Romanian autumn” by Matei Budes and “Bucharest where are you?” by Vlad Petri. “The crooked state” presents a selection of documentaries on various cases of corruption all over the world, including “Putin’s Games,” a film on bribing, corruption, environment degradation and violation of human rights behind the recently concluded Olympic Games at Sochi. “Media clinic tries through six movies, some of them more serious, others with a funnier approach, to analyze the state of the media at the moment, all over the world. The fifth section, “Love is a man’s right, too,” includes four stories about relationships denied by society, family or the laws of the countries they live in.
