MandagsDokumentar Efterår 2011

A text in Danish about the unique Copenhagen based documentary screening initiative ”MandagsDokumentar” where films, new and old, Danish and international, are screened, mostly with directors present and/or subjects to be discussed.

Så er det tid til en ny sæson af MandagsDokumentar, det unikke formidlingsinitiativ som blev taget for 9 år siden af Ebbe Preisler, som stadig er den utrættelige primus motor og kurator, som han selv betegner sig. Programmet er sædvanen tro opfindsomt sammensat, der er herlige gensyn med fine film som Claus Bohms designerfilm ”Den magiske orden”, Jon Bang Carlsens mesterlige gennembrudsfilm ”Jenny”, Frank Piaseckis ”Guerilla Girl”, som har været verden rundt og den herlige tegnefilm ”Hellere rask og rig end syg og fattig” af Jannik Hastrup.

For ikke at tale om Morten Henriksens ”Bag Blixens maske” (foto), som er blevet rost til skyerne af Allan Berg på denne blog – og en række sociale og politiske film fra verden omkring os.

Det er fremragende kompetent, det arbejde som Preisler udfører og det er derfor helt uforståeligt, at DFI (Det danske filminstitut) har beskåret tilskuddet til MandagsDokumentar med 25%. Sæt beløbet op igen, det manglede bare!
