My Dog Killer

This movie screening is a part of a program of Panorama Europe film festival of new european films. Known as Disappearing Act for its first five years, the newly re-named festival continues the mission of showcasing vital European filmmaking as distribution remains challenging for foreign language films in the United States. Panorama Europe gives New York audiences access to what may be their only chance to see these acclaimed films from the festival circuit on the big screen or at all. This year’s festival will take place at Museum of the Moving Image in Astoria and at the Bohemian National Hall in Manhattan. It was programmed by David Schwartz, Chief Curator at Museum of the Moving Image.

Presented by the Consulate General of the Slovak Republic and Slovak Film Institute 

Slovakia/Czech Republic. Dir. Mira Fornay. 2013, 90 mins. Digital projection. New York premiere. With Adam Mihál, Marián Kuruc, Irena Bendová. In a desolate corner of rural Slovakia, vacant-eyed skinhead Marek spends most of his time training his dog, Killer, and hanging out with the local neo-Nazis. But when he discovers he has a half-Gypsy brother—a serious taboo in this racist region—Marek is driven to drastic extremes. A Tiger Award winner at the Rotterdam Film Festival, this riveting, naturalistic drama conveys quiet intensity via hushed and hypnotic long takes.

Tickets for Panorama Europe at the Bohemian National Hall are free. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.
