In Martin Pav's Wolves at the Borders the fight between Man vs. Nature and our role in the ecosystem continues, and in this True Story interview, Martin and Nicole discuss culture clash, ecology and how we can all learn to talk about difficult topics.

 

We speak with Pavla Klimešová the producer of the Czech documentary Caught in the Net by Vít Klusák and Barbora Chalupová

A powerful, important and necessary film for all to watch in our times. An invigorating interview with producer Pavla Klimesova, where questions of morality, education and empathy are raised while we all look to our complicitness in how we can better protect our children.

 

Do you feel young people and children in the West know less and less about World War II? Should we know more? And how should we frame these important stories? In the newest film, Town of Glory, Russian film director Dmitry Bogolyubov shares with us a particular version of "remembering" heroes of the war. We learn about the town and people of Yelnya, 400 km from Moscow, and how propaganda affects the human minds of both adults and children. We asked questions in this vein, and much more, in this interview with Dmitry Bogolyubov during his latest visit to Prague.  

 

With Maxim Shved about his latest film Pure Art, but also about new project, the upcoming film, which follows the dramatic events surrounding the last presidential election in Belarus. At the end of the filming, during the post-election protests, director Maxim Shved himself was arrested and imprisoned. In this part of the True Story Podcast, we also talked about his experience.

 

With Liis Nimik and Carlos E. Lesmes, co-authors of the new documentary A Loss of Something Ever Felt, a gripping story about a young Estonian drug addict who goes missing, and his sister who searches for him in the dangerous corners of Bogota, where no one seems to go. 

 

Tudor talks about the 19th edition of the Transilvania Film Festival, which was held this year in Cluj from 31 July to 9 August on-site despite the difficulties of the COVID pandemic. This was one of the first big film festivals in the region to take place since the pandemic and many other events have been watching to see how the event plays out.

The first production grants in 2020 were announced by the Croatian Audiovisual Centre mid-July 2020.
