At Filmfestival Cottbus
On Wednesday 6 November at 14:30, DOK Leipzig presents the documentary "Vojta Lavička: Nahoru a dolů" (Vojta Lavička: Ups and Downs) from Helena Třeštíková (Czech Republic 2013) within the Film Festival Cottbus.
Czech director Helena Třeštíková specializes in long-term observations, always following several protagonists at the same time over years. Vojta Lavička has been one of them since 1996, a highly talented and successful violin player and Roma.
In life, though he fights the stigma of being a Roma, strongly at first, then more and more desperately, though he would love to bear it with pride.
