DocAlliance: From All of Us to All of You

Yes, this is how one the partners, CPH:DOX, of the very generous DocAlliance, ends the year with a Disney quote. And it IS a veeery good present that you should accept. The online platform – after a brilliant series of films by Miroslav Janek – offers 16 films (including a couple of masterclasses) FOR FREE, to be watched until next year, January 3rd.

If you have not seen them already, it is a must to go to Viktor Kossakovsky´s ”Vivan las Antipodas”, and to Eyal Sivan’s 128 minutes ”The Specialist” from 1999, with a quote from the text of the site:

“The incredible trial of an appallingly ordinary man. Drawn entirely on the 350 hours of rare footage recorded during the trial of Adolf Eichmann (photo), in 1961, in Jerusalem, this film about obedience and responsibility, is the portrait of an expert in problems resolving, a modern criminal. The film is inspired from the controversial book by Hannah Arendt : “Eichmann in Jerusalem, report on the banality of evil””.

And one more to be mentioned, check the rest through the website, link below, a film from 2012 that I did not see yet, by film essayist Peter Mettler, “The End of Time”:

“Working at the limits of what can easily be expressed, filmmaker Peter Mettler takes on the elusive subject of time, and once again turns his camera to filming the unfilmmable.

From the particle accelerator in Switzerland, where scientists seek to probe regions of time we cannot see, to lava flows in Hawaii which have overwhelmed all but one home on the south side of Big Island; from the disintegration of inner city Detroit, to a Hindu funeral rite near the place of Buddha’s enlightenment, Mettler explores our perception of time.”
