BRATISLAVA: The portmanteau film DOGG directed by Jonáš Karásek, Slávo Zrebný, Vilo Csino and Enrik Bistika will screen at the Slovak Film Week. The showcase for domestic production is organised by the Slovak Film and Television Academy and runs from 9 to15 April 2018.
Using a unique concept in the Slovak cinema, DOGG mixes different ways to incorporate the fundamental human emotion of fear. Enrik Bistika, Peter Balko and Maroš Hečko penned the script.
„I consider DOGG as a radical author film. Each of the four directors has a very specific style and vision. The short stories are full of anxiety and bizarreness, that cannot leave the audience indifferent“, producer/scriptwriter Maroš Hečko told the Slovak media.
The 100% Slovak production was produced by Azyl Production in coproduction with HomeMedia Production. The budget is 200,000 EUR. The Slovak Audiovisual Fund supported the project.
DOGG is the first film in a cycle of films reflecting human emotions. Two following projects made by the same team will be focusing on „laugh“ and „cry“.
Continental Film released DOGG in November 2017.
Director Jonáš Karásek and scriptwriters Maroš Hečko and Peter Balko stood behind Candidate (a Slovak/Czech coproduction between Azyl Production and B Digital), which was a box office hit in 2013.
