Don’t miss the exhibition of sculptures “Noha”, “Irony”, “Cross Check”, “Archimedon” and “Metamorfloris” by sculptor Lukas Rais on the plaza in front of CineStar Prague – Andel. Lukáš Reis focuses on the transformation of existing, standardized objects into new forms and meanings so that it's not difficult for a regular viewer to define, describe, and experience the object and eventually realize that nothing is what it seems on the first sight. His favourite materials are definitely metal pipes and their industrial products, which are deformed so that they deny their original purpose and essence. The sculptor cuts, bends, welds, turns inside out, dissects and recombines the seemingly invincible metal in unusual contexts.
Tickets for the new, prestigious section of Febiofest Culinary Cinema are still on sale online at http://www.ticketportal.cz/nevent.aspx?id=105 or at the Febiofest Information Desk. During three film evenings from March 24th to 26th, chefs from three top Prague restaurants – Jan Kratochvil from Divinis, Marek Hora from Yamato, and Michal Psenicka from Cafe Imperial – will cook for the audience under the direction of chef Zdenek Pohlreich. The program in the restaurant set up in Barrandov will include a screening and a several-course dinner prepared and served on the spot. Menu Febiofest Italy 2015 is accompanied by the screening of I Am Love, Final Recipe inspires the chefs for Menu Febiofest Asia 2015, and Menu Febiofest Foodies 2015 will be served after watching the documentary,Foodies, set in the environment of the best Michelin restaurants.
After the audience hits of the retrospective selections of the cinemas of Norway, Denmark, Sweden, and Finland, Febiofest will include the Northern Lights section in its program for the second time. Bille August depicted the topic of euthanasia in Silent Heart with dignity, and the excellent Danish actress, Paprika Steen, was awarded in San Sebastian for her performance in the leading role. Rockers, as the main protagonists, appear in two films – in Pernilla Fischer Christensen's Someone You Love, an ageing musician gets the opportunity to make up all that he has missed to his family because of his career. On the other hand, Itsi Bitsi is based on reality – the main protagonist, Eik, is a famous character of the Copenhagen music scene of the raging 1960s, with all that it included – the sexual revolution, meditations in exotic countries, up to the final devastation by drugs.
