In collaboration with Edison Filmhub, we bring you a screening of Francofonia as part of the DOX Summer Cinema

Francofonia is the story of two remarkable men, Louvre director Jacques Jaujard and Nazi Occupation officer Count Franziskus Wolff-Metternich - enemies then collaborators - whose alliance would be the driving force behind the preservation of museum treasures. FRANCOFONIA explores the relationship between art and power, the Louvre museum as a living example of civilization, and what art tells us about ourselves even in the midst of one of the bloodiest conflicts the world has ever seen.

Film version:
France, Germany, Netherlands, 2015, 84 min
Language: RU, FR, DE
Directed by: Alexander Sokurov
Genre: dokumentary
Film is shown in the original language with Czech subtitles.

Keep exploring

KAFKAesque

The exhibition KAFKAesque focuses on reflections on Kafka’s work and poetics in contemporary visual art offering not a historical perspective of his work, but a view that reflects our present-day situation with all its complexities and ambiguities.


Pavel Forman: TransForman

The exhibition will present thirty of the latest works by the painter Pavel Forman. The title of the exhibition can be understood as a play on words, referring of course to the artist’s name and at the same time to his favourite forms and approaches, which are in a sense “trans”, i.e. metamorphosing, transitional or mutating.


Point of View: Identity

Another instalment of the long-term project, which combines the format of an exhibition and a classroom and focuses on the theme of human identity. Who am I? What am I? The human form naturally takes centre stage; the body, its clothing, its behaviour. A person's identity and the different ways of looking at it.


DOX Summer Cinema

We are introducing a unique summer project combining DOX and Edison Filmhub. Together we have prepared a summer cinema in a unique location – on the roof of DOX+, offering a total of 11 screenings on a large outdoor screen and great sound with wireless headphones.


Adam Štech: houellebecq!

The exhibition houellebecq! by Adam Štech is neither a tribute to the French writer Michel Houellebecq nor an illustration of his works. Nor does it attempt to interpret or explain anything of his texts. Štech explores primarily himself, mediated in any way.


Nothing

Nothing is a raw and unedited story about a group of young people who, faced with the meaninglessness of life, venture away from the safety and innocence of childhood. The movie is screened in the summer cinema on the terrace of DOX+.


Sunset

This visually compelling historical drama follows 20-year-old Irisz Leiter, who arrives in the Hungarian capital after spending her adolescence in an orphanage, and is suddenly confronted with her own past and a dark secret surrounding her family. The movie is screened in the summer cinema on the terrace of DOX+.


The Killing of a Sacred Deer

Steven, a charismatic surgeon, is forced to make an unthinkable sacrifice after his life starts to fall apart, when the behavior of a teenage boy he has taken under his wing turns sinister. Eye for an eye, heart for a heart. The movie is screened in the summer cinema on the terrace of DOX+.


Under the Silver Lake

A fun, multi-genre romp full of bizarre plot twists, it follows Sam as he embarks on a surreal quest to decode the secrets, scandals and conspiracies lurking in the depths of Los Angeles following the disappearance of his mysterious neighbour. The movie is screened in the summer cinema on the terrace of DOX+.


France

A celebrity journalist, juggling her busy career and personal life, has her life over-turned by a freak car accident. The movie is screened in the summer cinema on the terrace of DOX+.


Daaaaaalí!

A young French journalist tried to meet artist Salvador Dalí repeatedly for a documentary film project which never gets off the ground. The movie is screened in the summer cinema on the terrace of DOX+.


Thin Skin

A performance by established circus acrobat Eliška Brtnická and her hypnotic production Thin Skin at the interface of movement installation and contemporary circus in the spaces of the DOX Centre.



Czech Hero

Satirical physical theater production Czech Hero by the theatre ensemble Farm in the Cave, which focuses on the contemporary and pressing topic of disinformation and political marketing. Movement, words, live music, dynamics, energy, exaggeration. All this in the DOX+ hall.



Commander

The unique production combines a physical theatre performance with live music and a film starring child actors of Farm in the Cave studio to communicate an urgent, yet widely overlooked, topic – the online radicalisation of youth.



Is this the end?
No, it's the beginning.
