VLADISLAVA Plančíková’s documentary Felvidék: Caught in Between premiered at the Budapest International Documentary Festival where it also received an award in the Let Us Be Free section.

The documentary unravels the history which continues to be a sore spot for people whose lives were impacted by the events after World War II.

The author looks at the forced resettlement of ethnic Hungarians in post-war Czechoslovakia through her own family history.

The jury was attracted mostly by the non-traditional adaptation of the film which combines oral history documentary, archive footage and animation, the SITA newswire reported.

Thanks to the Mobile Cinema project, Felvidek: Caught in Between will be screened in several local cinemas, gardens and houses of culture across Slovakia.

“Every director would be glad if his or her film were seen by as many spectators as possible. In the end, the film was made for the people,” Plančíková said, as quoted by SITA, adding she has one special wish for her own documentary. “I would like the film to get to the people whom it concerns the most – the contemporaries, their children and grandchildren.”
