The series of film screenings during the month of June will present a selection of short, animated, and feature films of NEOPLANTA FILM from 1966 to 1971, in which all types of work within Neoplanta will be represented - from the approach to the topic, which varied from illustrative, through lyrical-visionary, all the way to the problematic, as well as all genres, from animation, through classic documentary film, to fiction and feature film.

The aim of this selection is to show the most exemplary examples from large-scale production, examples that were simultaneously awarded by the decisions of international juries, and withdrawn from distribution by the decisions of local self-government bodies if a foreign partner would not rebel. Screenings with expert introductions and conversations with authors, contemporary authors, and film experts in the field of film for certain topics covered there, will aim to lead the audience to a critical reception of heritage that is constantly erased by administrative decisions, changes in cultural paradigms, and ways of acting in culture. and the inertia of cultural actors.
