The whole Czech Republic is One World!

This week, in Prague and thirty-two other towns throughout the Czech Republic, the human rights documents will be introduced. The One World Festival was launched on Monday the 6th of March in Prague with The Good Postman – a movie from the environment of small village on the border of Bulgaria and Turkey. Like the postman Ivan, also other thousands of characters of other One World movies deal with the moral dilemma and problematic issues of cooperation, integration policy or the actions of so called Islamic State. The cooperation is the main theme of this year´s festival.

This year the festival will welcome Zaradasht Ahmed, the director of stunning movie Nowhere to Hide, that through a small handheld camera follows the escape or Iraqi man Núrí from the Islamic state. Anna Zamecka, the creator of the Polish Communion – a movie about the early adolescensce of fourteen-year-old Oly who is taking care of her autistic brother – is another of the many guests. Classic categories will be complemented by thematic blocks: Who is Normal Here? – challenging the traditional view of normality; Journeys to Freedom – documenting the situation in countries where People in Need operates; So-called Civilisation – unifying the images of disastrous impact of excessive consumption on the environment; or new category Vote for Change! – reflecting the rise of populism in the world with images from Italy, Greece or Turkey.
