Director: Martin Kollár
Slovakia, Czechia, 2016, 50', color
Slovak with Turkish subtitles
 

The protagonist of this quiet picture is the director’s 52-year-old brother Ján Kollár, who learns that he needs to undergo a hazardous procedure with only a 50-50 chance of surviving. Ján takes his bike and a minimum of equipment and sets out on perhaps the last journey he’ll ever take when he can essentially do everything exactly the way he wants. The only limitation is the day set for his operation – October 5th. With its refined imaging, the visually precise movie bears witness to the physical and spiritual wanderings of a man in a crucial life situation. Employing sensitivity without pathos, the director records Ján’s struggle against fear and his sincere effort to stand face-to-face with his circumstances and find reconciliation. Ján commits his thoughts and feelings to a journal, excerpts of which serve as a formal element in this contemplative, powerful film.

Good News from the Skies

Good News from the Skies

Inspired by the exhibition And Now the Good News, which focusing on the relationship between mass media and art, we prepared horoscope readings based on the chapters of the exhibition. Using the popular astrological language inspired by the effects of the movements of celestial bodies on people, these readings with references to the works in the exhibition make fictional future predictions inspired by the horoscope columns that we read in the newspapers with the desire to receive good news about our day.
