Ice Mother at the Haifa International Film Festival 2017

Is there an age limit to changing your life? And once you decide to go ahead with it, will your nearest and dearest try to dissuade you? In Bohdan Sláma’s new tragicomedy a sixty-year-old widow finally manages to shake off the influence of her selfish sons in order to begin a new life with a hardy nonconformist. But any kind of change is going to cost something.

The Shop on Main Street at Haifa International Film Festival

In festival section Haifa Classics we present new restored version of the Academy Award-winning drama The Shom on Main Street whose main character accepts an offer to Aryanize a piece of Jewish property. The decision is immoral and the price is steep regardless of excuses. Are ordinary people really always powerless? That’s at least what Tono says to soothe his smarting conscience.

The Fabulous Baron Munchausen

In this unique treatment of the famous book by Gottfried August Bürger, Zeman was inspired by engravings used in the original edition from the hand of one of the most important illustrators of the 19th century, Gustave Doré. Filming the action in black and white, the director then used heavy tinting and different colors as symbols of the changing moods and surprising plot twists of the story. This fantastical adventure - interspersed with unique effects and funny gags - won many international prizes, among other festivals in Cannes and Locarno.

Normal Autistic Film

A foremost Czech documentarist with a unique authorial vision challenges us once and for all to stop perceiving autism as a medical diagnosis. Let’s take hold of the surrounding chaos and overload our senses! In such a state one may understand autism as a fascinating way of thinking that’s often maddeningly difficult to decipher.
