Discovering the Slovak Films

The Alisher Navoi Cinema Palace in Tashkent hosted the first Days of Slovak Cinema, organized with the support of the Embassy of the Slovak Republic in cooperation with the Uzbekkino National Agency.

At the opening ceremony, General Director of the Uzbekkino National Agency Otabek Musayev and the Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Slovak Republic to Uzbekistan Pavol Ivan noted the importance and significance of the cinematography.

“Cinema loves a sequel, and it will follow. Next year we plan to hold the Days of Uzbek Cinema in the Slovak Republic in Bratislava, as well as organizing the extended festival of the Slovak film with the invitation of Slovak filmmakers and actors,” Otabek Musayev said at the opening ceremony.

For three days Tashkent residents got acquainted with the Slovak cinematography. Three films were screened, which fully reflected the relationship between people, life of the Slovak people, and the issues they are concerned with.

At the opening day a tragicomic film ‘I love, you love’ was screened, filmed in 1980 by Dusan Hanak, and received the Silver Bear for best direction at the Berlin International Film Festival.

On the second day, viewers saw a feature film ‘The Boxer and Death’ by Peter Solan. According to the survey conducted by the film industry professionals in 1990, five of the top ten Slovak films were shot in the 1960s. Significant work of that time was also a picture of Peter Solan, shot in 1962.

The final film for screening was the tragic story of the fate of two young friends of the postwar period, filmed by director Miloslav Luther in 1989 ‘The Path across Danube.’

The history of the Slovak cinematography includes about 350 feature films, many of which have received positive responses by film critics.

A program of Uzbek films is getting prepared now, which will be presented next year in Bratislava.

By the end of the year the Uzbekkino National Agency film will hold the Days of Israeli Cinema and the Korean animation.
