February program

Wednesday– Saturday, 30. 1. – 2. 2.

International Documentary Film Festival on Human Rights

One world (Jeden Svet)

Since the murder of journalist Ján Kuciak and his fiancé, the archaeologist Martina Kušníř, it has been over half a year. The murder and society's reaction to it has become a moment that defines the present days. After ten months, relatively sure about Jana and Martina’s assassin, we are arguing about the ordering agents, but we learned a lot about the society we live in. This knowledge attempts to amplify the International One Documentary Film Festival, which will take place from January 30 to February 2 in Zilina. The festival has been opening the theme of freedom, democracy and human rights for 13 years. This year dedicated to the memory of Ján and Martin.

Entrance fee (one movie): 2,00 €; Season ticket: 8,00 / 6,00 €

Monday – Friday, Jan 28 – Feb 8
