Caught in the Net (V siti)

Režija: Barbora Chalupová, Vít Klusák

Czech Republic, 2020; 100' DCP
 

Three actresses, three children’s rooms, 10 days and 2458 sexual predators. An experiment that shines an urgent light on the taboo subject of the abuse of children on the internet. Three over-18 actresses with very young appearances are tasked with pretending they are 12 on fake social network profiles. In faithful copies of children’s rooms created in a film studio they chat and Skype with men of all ages who have searched for and contacted them online. The vast majority of these men demand video sex and send photos of their penises or links to porn.

Marek Šindelka: Material Fatigue (Únava materiálu)

Masterful writing and an amazing reading experience. Material Fatigue is a comprehensive and melodious analysis of the spirit of the time. Tzum
 

Material Fatigue is a startling novel about refugees, about fleeing war-torn homes and a journey through uncharted and hostile territory. Employing a poetic language, it tells the story of two brothers, human shadows on the margins of society, seeking sanctuary in a world dominated by brutality and aversion to outsiders. As the brothers’ pain, anxiety, and fear intertwine, a universal image of human rootlessness and alienation emerges, and a metaphor of today’s Europe, reminiscent of an automated mechanism, an endless production cycle. Šindelka’s novel does not moralize or point fingers, but draws us into the life of another, whilst kindling our sensitivity and empathy for our fellow human beings.

The novel was translated by Nives Vidrih.

Marek Šindelka is one of the Czech Republic’s leading young authors. His multi-award-winning work has been translated into several languages. His style combines precise language, convincing narrative, and a great flair for involving the readers, confronting them with in-depth insights into mutual relationships.

The conversation with the author will be hosted by Slovenian journalist and television presenter Igor E. Bergant in Cankarjev dom. If the situation with the pandemic and the measures against the spread of COVID-19 will not allow live events yet, a live broadcast from Cankarjev dom will be arranged. The event will be interpreted into Slovenian.

Marek Šindelka's attendance at Fabula has been supported by the Czech Literary Centre.

Deborah Levy: The Man Who Saw Everything

One of the big stories in English fiction this decade has been the return and triumph of Deborah Levy ... You would call her example inspiring if it weren’t clearly impossible to emulate.
New Statesman

 




In 1988, Saul Adler crosses the famous zebra crossing on Abbey Road in London. He gets (perhaps then, perhaps later) hit by a car. Seemingly injured, he visits his girlfriend, artist Jennifer Moreau; they split up after engaging in sex. As a historian, Saul then carries out a research trip to East Germany just before the fall of the wall, where he enters a bizarre frenzy of Marxism, eroticism, guilt, and pop culture all blending to make a chaotic whole, focusing on what people are willing to overlook to convey an impression – in the eyes of History and our own eyes – of being who we want to believe we are. How much damage do we cause ourselves and the people around us by supressing things? The Man Who Saw Everything is a novel that deconstructs itself so that it can be reassembled in the end, which leads us to finish the last page and instantly start reading it all over again.

The novel was translated by Jernej Županič.

Deborah Levy is one of the UK’s most prominent contemporary writers and playwrights, and one of the great thinkers of our time. Her masterful autobiographical collection is regarded as a ground-breaking work of autofiction and a major essayistic accomplishment. Her novels have received several nominations for the Man Booker Prize, including The Man Who Saw Everything (2019).

Due to the pandemic and measures against the spread of COVID-19, the literary event with Deborah Levy will take place virtually. The recording of the virtual conversation with the author, prepared by the Fabula film crew, will be hosted Slovenian editor, publicist and doctor of history Manca G. Renko. The recording will have Slovenian subtitles and will premiere on Cankarjev dom's website, www.cd-cc.si, and Cankarjev dom's social media channels.

Jokha Alharthi: Celestial Bodies

Celestial Bodies is itself a treasure house: an intricately calibrated chaos of familial orbits and conjunctions, of the gravitational pull of secrets.
The New York Times Book Review
 

Celestial Bodies is a multifaceted story about the expectations of family and society to which people respond differently: some with submissiveness, others with resistance. The story revolves around three sisters and their decisions concerning marriage and love. Mayya marries to get over her first heartbreak and turns her marriage into an emotional emigration; Asma marries out of a sense of duty to a man she does not love, but knows both are able to nurture affection; and Khawla, willing to accept unhappiness in the name of romantic love, chooses to refuse all offers and await a reunion with the man she loves. An emotional, historical, geographical, and political study of a microenvironment, Celestial Bodies affords a glimpse at society in all its degrees.

The novel was translated by Barbara Skubic.

Jokha Alharthi has published two collections of short stories and three novels. She rose to international prominence with Celestial Bodies, a novel that won the Man Booker International Prize in 2019. This is the first novel written in Arabic to receive this prestigious prize and the first work by an Omani woman to have a novel translated into English – and Slovenian.

Due to the pandemic and measures against the spread of COVID-19, the literary event with Jokha Alharthi will take place virtually. The recording of the virtual conversation with the author, prepared by the Fabula film crew, will be hosted by Slovenian writer, literary critic and journalist Ana Schnabl. The recording will have Slovenian subtitles and will premiere on Cankarjev dom's website, www.cd-cc.si, and Cankarjev dom's social media channels.

Claudia Durastanti: The Stranger (La Straniera)

Claudia Durastanti has written a work of great emotional urgency and elegance.
Books Hunters Blog

The Stranger is a story of growing up with deaf, emotionally unstable and underprivileged parents with whom the narrator moves through life: from her childhood as an Italian emigrant in New York and in the impoverished south Italian Basilicata to her studies and intellectual and artistic development in Rome and London. The Stranger is not only an intimate, but also generational narration of a young woman born in the mid-80s who sought to escape the unbearableness of her everyday life in music, film, and art, donning this as an armour to help her make it through the present. This is a tale of the generation of austerity measures and globalized tastes that walks the thin line between depression and fun. The Stranger does not hide behind fiction: the author seeks to make sense of her own life through contemplations about identity, class, art, and love.

Writer and translator Claudia Durastanti is considered to be one of the most insightful Italian writers. She received the Mondello Prize for her debut novel One Day I'll Come Throw Rocks at Your Window (2010). Her novel The Stranger (2019) landed her on the final shortlist for the most prestigious Italian literary Strega Prize and was also very well received internationally.

The novel was translated by Vera Troha.

Due to the pandemic and measures against the spread of COVID-19, the literary event with Caludia Durastanti will take place virtually. The recording of the live conversation with the author, prepared by the Fabula film crew in Rome, will be hosted by Slovenian journalist Klara Krapež. The recording will have Slovenian subtitles and will premiere on Cankarjev dom's website, www.cd-cc.si, and Cankarjev dom's social media channels.

Claudia Durastanti's attendance at Fabula has been supported by the Italian Instutite for Culture Slovenia.

Vladimir Sorokin: Day of the Oprichnik

The scene in Day of the Oprichnik is set in a Russia of the near future, a period of political restoration in which the monarchy has been re-established. Its pillars are self-determination, Orthodoxy, and tradition. Passports are being burned on the Red Square and diplomats are being driven out of the country. The only country with which Russia is maintaining contact is China. Futuristic technology is merged with the torture techniques of Ivan the Terrible; the world seems like a horrifying dystopia, while being simultaneously more real than ever. Welcome to Russia of 2028: leave any hope behind, all who enter. The novel is considered to be a modern classic and has been translated into over thirty languages.

The novel was translated by Andreja Kalc.

Vladimir Sorokin is one of the finest and most celebrated contemporary Russian writers. His works fuse postmodernist fiction with elements of dystopia, satire, and Soviet motifs. He has received every major Russian literary prize and has also been shortlisted for the Man Booker International Prize.

Due to the pandemic and measures against the spread of COVID-19, the literary event with Vladimir Sorokin will take place virtually. The recording of the live conversation with the author, prepared for Fabula in Berlin by Slovenian correspondent Polona Fijavž, cameraman Gregory Gan and Manca Filak, will be hosted by Russian journalist, producer and writer Julia Efremenkova. The recording will have Slovenian subtitles and will premiere on Cankarjev dom's website, www.cd-cc.si, and Cankarjev dom's social media channels.
