Detective Hae-joon is called to the case of the death of a man who killed himself under unclear circumstances by falling off a cliff. The shadow of suspicion immediately falls on the newly widowed, beautiful Seo-rae, who at first glance is not even bothered by this fact.

Living room

The theatre of masks and furniture from the workshop of the Czech-French art collective tYhle is an expedition of human imagination into the unexplored territory of furniture. It takes place between the walls of one room, in a world that exists parallel to ours. Each item in it has its own character. On the border between light and dark, amidst the silent creak of wooden legs and creaking doors, furniture and the human body become a canvas from which fantastic figures emerge and disappear again. In his project, Lukáš Karásek balances on the edge of mask theater, dance and circus and plays an exciting game full of imagination and humour.

Where is Anne Frank?

In an unmistakable way, with Ari Folman’s charming animation, the film deals with topical issues that resonate in the contemporary world. Every day, in the media and in everyday life, we encounter inattention, intolerance and increased resistance to injustice and violence. It is the inspiring stories of individuals, very brave people who, despite everything, do not hesitate to help, sacrifice themselves for others, help us overcome disillusionment with the current set-up of society.

Be2Can Film Tour: Final Cut

The filming of a low-budget zombie horror movie goes awry in an abandoned building. With his obnoxious demeanour, the obnoxious director pushes the cast and crew to the brink as he reveals his plan to bring energy and excitement to the project: bring a real, ancient zombie curse to life. In a frenzied one-shot with body parts and fluids flying all over, the actors fight for their lives with the undead and their director until the film comes to a shocking conclusion and the credits roll… but is that the whole story?

Blanch + Riava

Friday 21. 10., 8:00 p.m. 


Blanch + Riava

BLANCH is the stage name of Bianca Mack. Blanch works as a solo artist and as a 4-member musical group (Dominik Špuler, Marek Votruba, Jakub Kolesár).

The repertoire has an alternative rock-pop sound with subtle elements of melancholy and discovery. The successful debut ‚Delusion‘ (Slnko Records) from 2019, which was the result of the author’s first three years of creative work, was followed up by Blanch and the band with last year’s album ‚VERACITY‘ (Slnko Records). On it, you can hear the sonic shift of the project and personal growth. But Blanch is no stranger to the sound of trap and hip hop, which is why, in addition to many collaborations with names like WEN and YOO, you can hear her together with a rapper and a producer Duch on their joint album ‚Indigo Waters‘ from last year. As part of Blanch’s concert repertoire, you will be able to hear a cross-section of previous work, especially songs from the latest album ‚VERACITY‘.

RIAVA is a young band from Bratislava with a minimalist sound made up of analog sounds of synthesizers, original rhythmic elements and piercing sound of the guitar. The melancholic but energetic alto of the singer Hanka Sumbala is in a penetrating connection with striking lyrics.

Be2Can Film Tour: Holy Spider

In Mashhad, the Spider-Man goes on a rampage at night, luring victims into his web. He kills women, prostitutes. While police ignores the crimes, Rahím, a journalist from Tehran, wanders the dark neighbourhoods of the holy city in search of the truth. The film Holy Spider is based on a true story and its title refers to the nickname of the serial killer Saïd Hanaí, who killed sixteen prostitutes in the city of Mashhad in 2001 because he considered them „unclean“. His trial caused a great stir in Iran, not only because of the horror that happened, but also because some media and conservative groups made him a hero.
