DOXANJE – DOCAVIV
The Doxanje program is dedicated to all documentary filmmakers who bravely and critically question the life that surrounds us, while being a part of it. Doxanje will host renowed international documentary film festivals from around the world and will screen films from their selections which do not hold back in testing the traditional documentary format. They offer a welcome view on people, nature, the world and universe and all their relationships. They also show an empthatic insight in the struggles and abuses of human rights and freedoms.
This year's guests come from Israel's Docaviv – The Tel Aviv Documentary Film Festival.
The next generation of documentary filmmakers presents a diverse selection of works. The program showcases three projects produced in Israel’s film schools, all of surprising maturity and originality, offering us a glimpse into the future of local documentary filmmaking in Israel. The selection of films presents personal statements and fascinating stories, ranging from the personal to the political, providing viewers with unique insights of the Israeli conflicted and multicultural realities through innovative and originally crafted films that excel in both content and form.

For 50 years a family archive sat in the dark, until Rotem persuaded her mother Varda to watch her childhood anew. The 8mm films are revealed to have been shot by Varda's mother, an amateur filmmaker that documented her life in Tel Aviv during the late 1960s. The films shed light on past memories mixed with the present, and on mother-daughter relationships.
Obiteljski arhiv već 50 godina skuplja prašinu, sve dok Rotem ne nagovori svoju majku Vardu da isponova pogledaju snimke njenog djetinjstva. Film na 8 milimetarskoj vrpci snimila je Vardina majka, amaterski snimatelj, koja je dokumentirala svoj život u Tel Avivu kasnih 60-ih godina. Film prikazuje prošla sjećanja pomiješana sa sadašnjošću te odnos između majke i kćeri.

Dokumentarni, Documentary, 18', 2017., Israel / Izrael
Twelve-year-old Murhaf is known as "the secret keeper of the tree". He is charged with watching over a 400-year-old oak tree, a responsibility he inherited from his father.
Beneath the oak tree, in a reality that oscillates between the poverty of the occupation, and a mythic world filled with fantasy, Murhaf finds a way to love.
Dvanestogodišnji Murhaf znan je kao „tajni čuvar drveta“. Zadužen je za čuvanje hrasta starog 400 godina, odgovornost koju je naslijedio od oca. Ispod hrasta, u stvarnosti koja oscilira između siromašnog zaduženja i mitskog svijeta punog mašte, Murhaf pronalazi ljubav.
