Válek / Ars Poetica Film 2018

Wednesday, November 21 / 7:45pm
Lumière Film Theatre, auditorium No. 4, Špitálska 4, 81108 Bratislava

A documentary on the life and work of the poet and Minister of Culture in the period of normalization Miroslav Válek (1927-1991). He left such a mark on Slovak culture in the past century that not to come to terms with him would mean leaving his essential role without any reflection. The creators bravely undertook this difficult task and transformed numerous testimonials by Válek's family members, poets, living contemporaries and literary scientists into a three-dimensional mosaic.

They made use of archival footage and excerpts from the author's work in an attempt to portray the complex fate of one of the most conflicting public personalities of the last century.

Válek, dir. Patrik Lančarič (Slovakia, 2018, color/b&w, 131′, documentary)
