We mark the entry into the new year, 2021, with new biographical films on the volimdokumentarce.net platform: Vita Activa: The Spirit of Hannah Arendt and The Lives of Albert Camus. An additional six films on the theme of political and intellectual rebellion are available at half price until January 17 with the code DOKU-PRAZNICI. The campaign for the most watched films from Restart’s docu-treasury has also been extended.
The start of the new year, 2021, is marked by Restart with new films on the volimdokumentarce.net platform. Their common theme is the political and social engagement of two exceptional personalities, the political theorist Hannah Arendt and the journalist and writer Albert Camus, whose thoughts and practical actions left an exceptional mark on the overall philosophical and political thought of the 20th century, and whose influences are very current even today and continue to resonate rebelliously throughout the 21st century.
We enter the new week of holiday isolation on volimdokumentarce.net with the online premiere of VITA ACTIVA: THE SPIRIT OF HANNAH ARENDT directed by Ada Ushpiz, a biographical documentary about this exceptional German-Jewish philosopher. Hannah Arendt’s reflections on the sources of totalitarianism, the nature of evil, and exhaustive transhistorical research on the emergence and position of refugees, but above all pointing out the pitfalls of all ideologies against the idea of active citizenship, which she passionately advocated, left an indelible mark. Uncompromising in her thinking but also in her actions, Arendt tirelessly wrote about the open wounds of the modern age, and the director of the film, Ada Ushpiz, managed to create a provocative and insightful portrait of this great philosopher and intellectual. In the new cycle on Restart’s platform, the repertoire includes the film THE LIVES OF ALBERT CAMUS, a biographical documentary by director Georges-Marc Benamou dedicated to the famous philosopher and writer, whose activities were primarily aimed at raising awareness of the position of the powerless and humiliated. Rebelliousness in thought and action marked the short but extremely intense life of this modern classic, who definitely confirmed his cult status by winning the Nobel Prize at the age of only 44.
Both films are available on the volimdokumentarce.net platform for a fee of 3 dollars, or in the HRK equivalent of around HRK 18.
The new cycle of films on volimdokumentarce.net also brings 6 titles thematically related to the topic of political, intellectual and identity rebellion, which are also available at half price until January 17 with the promotional code DOKU-PRAZNICI.
Among the “rebellious titles” stands out WALDHEIM’S WALTZ, a film by the famous documentarian Ruth Beckermann, which tells about the scandal of Austrian diplomat and politician Kurt Waldheim, former Secretary General of the United Nations and Austrian President. The affair broke out after it was leaked to the public that Waldheim kept silent about part of his wartime career in the Wehrmacht army. He fought in Greece and Yugoslavia, and Ante Pavelić himself decorated him for his contribution in the Battle of Kozara. There are also OBSCURO BARROCO, a sensual docu-fiction film by Greek author Evangelia Kranioti about the icon of the Brazilian queer scene, transgender activist Luana Muniz; THE FORGOTTEN CASE OF HAMMARSKÖJLD, the legendary Danish docu-provocateur Mads Brügger, an unusual investigation into the mysterious death of UN Secretary General Dag Hammarskjöld, who actively advocated for the liberation of African countries from colonial rule, for which he resented the many Western countries and corporations that tried to keep the former colonies power over natural resources; THE YES MEN: REBELLION! in which the activists of this famous collective are preparing for the biggest challenge so far – climate change; CITIZENFOUR, winner of the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature, tells the story of Edward Snowden, America’s most famous whistleblower and former CIA employee who exposed the scandal of illegal wiretapping of citizens by the US National Security Service (NSA); THE VIEW OF SILENCE, a film by renowned documentarian Joshua Oppenheimer, nominated for an Oscar as well as a European Film Award, which gives a fascinating insight into the political present and past of Indonesia marked by political assassinations during the 60s.
