APPARATUS AS A GOAL OF HISTORY / APARAT KAO CILJ POVIJESTI
Zbyněk Baladrán – Češka / Czech Rep. 2019. – 13’52” firstname.lastname@example.org
Like every film, this audiovisual work is a metaphor that pretends to be a mirror of reality. It is an interpretation, a translation of reality into the language of film. The documentary records of the working environment and activities, which may seem hopeless, are looped into algorithms. Algorithms are basic units of apparatus, and apparatuses are our normative experience, no matter in which social strata they are experienced. When looking for an adequate ontology transcribed into form, the apparatus, which captures the symptoms of the present and spews them out in the form of images, is precisely such an ontology. Vilém Flusser wrote about it: “All of history, politics, art and science is sucked in by the apparatus to be transcoded into its structural counterparts; into programs that repeat in loops. The apparatus is the aim of history.” He continues: “Technical images cannot be deciphered by revealing the motives behind them (pretexts) but by revealing the structure of the apparatus. This is the only way in which we can hope to manage these apparatuses. This is the challenge our images face us with.”
MILENA’S SONG / MILENINA PÍSEŇ / MILENINA PJESMA
Marie Lukáčová, Anna Remešová – Češka / Czech Rep. 2019. – 9′ email@example.com

The courage and extraordinary of the message could not be left without attention of the Ecumenical Jury. As well as the aesthetic form of the short film that vividly recalls the true beauty of human reunion with the divine origin.
