Cinema World / Kino Svet

Running time: 28'

The documentary “Cinema World” tells us a story of one of the last village cinemas in Slovakia. Real life stories and memories of local villagers give us a look into the history of this cinema and show us its importance. Not only has the viewer an opportunity to be a witness of the cinema's celebration in the memories of people, but he can also witness the closure of this cultural village temple. Even though the cinema was a significant part of the village for over half of the century, villagers will have to give it their last goodbye. The trigger in this scenario is the digitalization of cinemas in Slovakia. Village Očová decided not to take a part in this action. Unfortunately, this means sending their cinema straight to execution. Will the last goodbye carry the smell of sadness or pride? That is the question.
