Asian View

Each year, the section dedicated to the Asian continent strives to provide some kind of report about the current state of the local cinema and to introduce works of major Asian directors as well as award-winning films by new filmmakers to Czech audiences. The selection both reflects the well-liked action and historical films which popularised cinema from many Asian countries in Europe and attempts to introduce films from smaller and less prominent countries. This year's pick is marked by a reflective spirit. Each in their distinctive style, the filmmakers focus on the past, present, and future of their respective countries, be it China, the Korean Peninsula, or Thailand.
