A year after the premiere of the documentary of the Antifascist Action – 161>88 in BIO OKO cinema in Prague, the movie was released on DVD that includes English and German subtitles.
During the year that followed the premiere, around 25 screenings were organized – both in Czech Republic and abroad (Slovakia, Serbia, Germany, Sweden…). The movie was also introduced on Jihlava International Documentary Film Festival, one of the most important event of its kind in Europe. The movie was also selected for screening on East Silver Market – an event aiming at professional audience and focused on Central and Eastern Europe documetary production. We were especially happy to see a demand for screening from schools and also interviews with the authors that were published in couple magazines.
About the movie
This movie was made by antifascists who have already chosen their attitude to the topic. We won’t persuade you that the movie is ”objective” in the usual sense. But we see its value in something else - the fact that we have been an active part of the events and that we were effectively shaping them. The movie of the Antifascist Action (AFA) monitors more than twenty years of the struggle against neo-Nazis, fascists and racists. The historic cross-section shows the multiple rises and falls of neo-Nazis and racists. You will witness the power as well as limited potential of the antifascist movement that doesn’t deal just with neo-Nazis, but also with the repression of the state and the public opinion.
