Festival "30 Decagrams of Freedom"
The first edition of the festival of documentary films on human rights entitled “Thirty decagrams of freedom” has been organized by FMC students to be held on 7th-10th March 2006. The films have been selected and borrowed from the archive of the national festival “One World.” They will be shown in the Zlin skyscraper and followed by a discussion aimed at the Topic of the Day and held with a guest. The topics of individual days are: Censored, Children and Outcasts, Silent Suffering of Women, Man in the Leading Role.
“We gave the festival an unconventional, controversial name on purpose. Thirty decagrams of freedom should lead to contemplation and remind you that, in some places, freedom is still treated as a commodity. It is a hint at the fact that freedom is not a commonplace thing for all people in the world. In some places, it is still a “scarce commodity”,” the leader of the project, Michal Vičar said. The festival is to be opened in the Baťa skyscraper at 16:00 by showing a preview of photographs made by Helena Houdová and named “You are not allowed to see”. Everyone is invited to come.
