The 7th “MakeDox” festival of the creative documentary movies began on Saturday, August 20 under the open sky of the Kurshumli An in Skopje in pleasant atmosphere with international guests. Eight-years process of creative re-thinking resulted in Petra Selishkar movie “My world is upside down,” which première happened at the opening night of the festival. The spectators, which in large number visited the opening of the festival, saw the mixture of music and a personal story of Slovenian actor, writer and unique performer Frane Milcinski-Ježek.
In the 75 minutes travel in his personal story, joined with music in different languages, “My world is upside down,” offered an insight to the comic, sad, but joyful travel in the life of famous artist who rose above the hardships and left the layers of creativity. At moments, the irony of the former life brought on surface new dimension with many archive materials, carefully combined in creative approach.
The viewers were probably flabbergasted with 15 minutes “When you awake,” by Jay Rosenblatt that combined tricky world of the hypnosis with archival-video materials. Some of them were not proper for the children in the audience, but the viewers did not reacted to some explicit scenes in the video. “MakeDox” continues until August 26. On Saturday, the viewers could se, “Jonas and the backyard circus,” by Paula Gomes, the opening of the program “Russian Snow,” with “Under the sun” by Vitaly Mansky, the short movie about aftermath of the Egypt’s revolution and “Beyond boundaries,” by Peter Zach.
