DOKUDOC in Villa Zlatica in Ljubljana


An exciting addition for this year is the collaboration between the DOKUDOC festival and the International Foundation Forum of Slavic Cultures, headquartered at the historic Vila Zlatica museum house in Ljubljana. On June 30 and July 1, we will gather in the garden of Villa Zlatica in Ljubljana to enjoy screenings of two films:  A World Beneath a Dark Lid directed by Amir Muratović, and Century of Dreams directed by Ven Jemeršič. Friday evening will commence with opening remarks from Dr. Andreja Rihter, the director of FSK, and Maja Malus Azhdari, the festival director of DOKUDOC. Following the screening of A World Beneath a Dark Lid, we will have the privilege of engaging in a conversation with both the director and the film's central protagonist.

A World Beneath a Dark Lid, directed by Amir Muratović (88 min, 2022, Slovenia)

On his journeys around the world in his ultralight aircraft, the aviator, photographer, mountain climber, biologist and environmentalist Matevž Lenarčič collects data about black carbon, the second largest forcing agent underlying global warming. His unusual, at times extreme worldviews send an urgent message: unless the values of our civilization change, our world faces devastation.

A Century of Dreams, directed by Ven Jemeršič (87 min, 2019, Slovenia)

A Century of Dreams is a feature documentary about the oldest Slovenian inventor, Peter Florjančič, who has recently celebrated his 100th birthday. In the film, the controversial innovator gives a first-hand account of, in his own words, a life as thrilling as Hitchcock’s films. Florjančič considers himself a hedonist whose inventions have given him a luxurious and exciting life.
