Mezipatra Queer film festival

Mezipatra Queer film festival

7. - 13. 11. 2019

What would films talk about if their protagonists merely accepted the goings-on passively? If they never set out on a journey into the unknown, accepted new challenges, took part in adventures or gathered experience? Would the screens present stories of first loves, dreams, and ideals one must fight for?

The films of our anniversary programme will convince you that we are the ones holding our fates firmly in our hands, and emphasise how important it is to never relax efforts to create a better world based on solidarity. You see, Mezipatra came to life 20 years ago with the awareness that only an active approach can create a future full of tolerance. Find some inspiration for yourselves in this year's films!

Sandra Hezinová, Program Director

MEZIPATRA: A Family Is a Derivative of Listening

The art of listening between generations seems like an insurmountable task. As these five original films show, starting and keeping the family hearth burning is usually accompanied by moments of surprise, disillusionment and disappointment. But even if it isn't always easy, mutual understanding finally appears and the flame doesn't die. And that's what makes a family. Show more

MEZIPATRA: Adam

The year is 2006. Adam is seventeen, lives with his parents in a small town and is not very good at being cool and scoring with the girls. When his older sister, Casey, invites him to spend the summer holidays with her in New York, he's excited: he might finally get lucky. But soon he realises something different is in store for him. He finds himself in the middle of queer bars, marches for equal marriage and other events, and realizes how ridiculous the prejudices he brought to Brooklyn are. So when he falls for Gillian, who considers him to be a trans boy, Adam faces a difficult decision: Should he correct her misconception? Rhys Ernst's feature debut, told with ease and sharp wit, will charm you with its authentic story about the importance of friendship and mutual tolerance, not only within the queer community.

MEZIPATRA: Love Field Intenstity

There's nothing more adventurous than meeting a new person. The world is suddenly more beautiful and without obstacles, colours are more vivid, and even the stars shine brighter. Getting to know someone tends to be an intense but also ephemeral experience. The protagonists of these stories figured out, however, how to make it last longer and make the most of it. Let's hang on with them at this exciting point for a while and allow ourselves to be dragged around the nooks of romance. Show more

MEZIPATRA: End of the Century

While on holidays, Ocho rents a flat on the seashore of Barcelona. He eats alone, drinks beer and visits the beach where he flirts with smiling Javi. The inconspicuous admiration from afar gradually grows into stolen kisses and finally passionate sex. The lovers spend a whole day together. But the situation starts to feel familiar to both. Is this truly their first meeting? Can you forget a person you may have once loved? This intimate story by the Argentinian director Lucio Castro focuses on the importance of small decisions that can change the direction of our lives in a completely unexpected way, and on the treachery of human memory. The director's debut relies on the authenticity and detailed psychology of the couple's relationship, showing how the unusual romance might be less detached from us than it may seem at first sight. This sincere account of a long-term relationship won the main award at the Frameline festival in San Francisco. Show more

MEZIPATRA: The Ground Beneath My Feat

Lola is a successful young woman specializing in management consultancy and works happily almost 24/7. She sacrifices everything for her career and is always in overdrive. Her personal life consists only of an occasional night spent with her boss, but the woman carefully hides their affair. Lola's amazing career starts to disintegrate when, like a nightmare in a perfect life, her older sister appears, despite supposedly being safely locked behind the walls of a psychiatric ward. Marie Kreutzer, one of the most prominent Austrian directors today, has made a captivating psychological thriller that toys with the audience just as cleverly as life toys with the main protagonist. Dive into the dark nooks of the human psyche where rationality holds no sway -- because the ground beneath the feet slowly starts to crumble away. Show more

MEZIPATRA: And They Lived Happily...

Občas zavrávorá každá. Návod na milostný život zatím nebyl objeven, a tak nezbývá nic jiného než metoda pokus omyl. Ale není život bez návodu ta pravá jízda? Z těchto krátkých filmů o vzájemném hledání, které je většinou hořkosladce neobratné, je patrné jedno: vzpomínky znamenají zkušenost k nezaplacení. Show more

MEZIPATRA: And Then We Danced

Since early childhood, Merab has been a member of the National Georgian Ensemble, which focuses on traditional dance. The lead choreographer is strict with the dancers: Georgian dance does not express sexuality, just the soul of the nation. And that means the Orthodox religion, traditional gender roles and family values. It is therefore not only the strict dance rules, but also the rigid opinions of society that influence the life of the hardworking youth whose dream is to perform abroad. But when Irakli appears at the practice sessions, Mareb's world is shaken. He faces a new rival, but is simultaneously confronted with a mesmerizing attraction to another man. Throbbing in the rhythm of energetic music, Levan Akin's sensual romance captures the desire to be free, as well as the conflict we may feel regarding our roots. This sincere, emotionally raw drama won Best Film at the Odessa IFF and Best Director at the Sarajevo IFF. Show more

We face systems that cannot predict our desires and that create boxes we cannot fit into. As the protagonists of this block demonstrate, it's time to stand up and let the world know we're here.

MEZIPATRA: To the Stars

1960s, Oklahoma. Bullied by her classmates, reclusive Iris finds small-town life pure torment; for self-assured Maggie, however, moving to the sticks provides an opportunity to stand out from the rest. What begins as an uneven relationship between two very different girls gradually grows into a sturdy friendship which starts to bring Iris out of her shell. But can the girls be truly themselves? As the heroines soon discover, a society bound by gender traditions doesn’t easily tolerate those who step out of line. In all its fine-spun detail, the story told by director Martha Stephens conveys a black-and-white, almost dreamlike existence. At first glance it might seem remote to us yet it still tilts a mirror towards today’s world. Pay no mind to the opinions of others--just be yourselves and come and see one of the most distinctive female films of this festival season. Show more

MEZIPATRA: What I Dream About

The medium of animation is not the only thing these films have in common. To model or paint the moments that are stuck in our memory for some reason is also a great therapeutic tool. The filmmakers literally put things in motion through their work, and replay their wildest fantasies. But don't be mistaken, the heady glamour of the animating effects hides real human victories and failures, not anything from a toyshop. Show more

MEZIPATRA: Matthias & Maxime

Matthias and Maxime have been inseparable friends since childhood. Yet when they are asked to kiss in front of the camera during a student film shoot, everything suddenly changes. Their seemingly unbreakable bond is shaken by doubt – what is the true nature of their mutual feelings? The years go by, their paths diverge, but as their thirties approach, they must both make a decision that will dramatically affect their future. In his eighth film, Xavier Dolan again focuses on the issues of friendship, family relationships and being in love, offering an intimate portrait of two slightly lost men, one of whom tries to deny his nature while the other wants to live in an authentic way. Just like the moved audience at this year's Cannes festival, this film will convince you that Dolan is the only one who can capture his generation's hopes and fears with quirky sincerity. Show more
