Travis Wilkerson will hold a masterclass on how very personal memories of his family (his father) transcend to collective memories of the veterans.

Uzun Mirkova 1
In her lecture Viera Čákanyová will interpret Notes From Eremocene as the final film of an intuitive trilogy dealing with the same motives, narratives, issues: artificial intelligence, a dystopian future of humankind, analogue versus digital, nature versus civilization, and climate change.
