Small book market
After a long time, the Small Book Market returns to Stanica. And what month could be better than March - the month of the book!

Your interest in books is clear to us, so we would like to encourage the circulation, sale or exchange of used books. Whether as a visitor, seller or donor, we invite you. Old and new books, magazines, records, and things related to it can be “marketed”. We also welcome children's sellers. Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.

‘Big bad fox and other events’
The countryside is not always as calm as it seems, and the animals from this farm are unpredictable: a fox who is the mother of three chickens; a hare that plays the stork or a duck who wants to be Santa Claus. You think rural life is a walk through a rose garden, think again! We will screen the film together with a short pre-film by Šarkan by Martin Smatana.

Sadness begins with the work of an abandoned house, which he wants to turn into a home for his daughter and granddaughter with a beautiful view of the countryside. Reconciliation is complicated by the information that his beloved had led another, secret life. Was she unfaithful to him? A man cannot go on until he finds out the truth.

‘Whiskey Travel Cinema: Patagonia’
One of the most beautiful and remote roads in the world, 1,240 km long Carretera Austral, leading through the wilds of southern Chile through vast virgin rainforests and over 20 Patagonian National Parks. A landscape of wild fjords, huge glaciers, tall volcanoes, pioneering villages, beautiful azure mountain lakes, almost untouched by tourism. But also famous areas of Argentine Patagonia such as the breathtaking mountain peak ‘Fitz Roy’ in the National Park Los Glaciares or Perito Moreno glacier with an area of 250 square kilometers and a height of 20 storey buildings. In contrast, the arid and windy, endless pampa full of llamas and armadillos running through the famous Ruta 40, which will take us over 1,500 km of wilderness to the green region of Los Lagos. But also the vibrant and beautiful Buenos Aires, or the legendary Argentine steaks. This will also be discussed in the next installment of Whiskey Travel Cinema.

‘Loafers’ (dir. Ladj Ly)
Stéphane recently joined a special criminal unit in Montfermeil, a suburb of Paris. Together with his colleagues Chris and Gwad, both experienced team members, he quickly registers increasing tensions among neighboring gangs. When they find themselves escaping during their arrests, the drone captures their every move, every action… Inspired by the revolts of 2005, director Ladj Ly set the current Montfermeil, the same place where the famous Victor Hugo Bedsmiths took place in 1862. More than 150 years later, the resemblance between today's angry youth in sweatshirts and Gavroch, the main character of Bedar, is very distinctive.
