March edition of the event “Documentary Thursday” will present a controversial movie “Fuck for forest” directed by Michał Marczak from Poland. Screening is going to take place at REX (Jevrejska 16), on the 20th of March at 8 pm. Tickets: 200 RSD (from 11 am to 8 pm at REX).
Berlin’s Fuck for Forest is one of the world’s most bizarre charities: based on the idea that sex can change the world, the NGO raises money for their environmental cause by selling home-made erotic films on the Internet.
When I decided to make a film about Fuck for Forest, my first intention was to capture an image of this bizarre phenomenon of our times. It would be a portrayal of ideals becoming de-centered, micro-trends being formed, and elements of our culture going every possible way. The freedom and availability of information has fragmented society and extended the capabilities of human imagination. As I began to examine the characters’ organisation and understand the complexities of this particular case of foreign aid, I discovered an opportunity to film a paradoxical clash of cultures.
My final intention was to make a film that encompassed a variety of different themes. Although this discovery is ultimately left up to the viewer.
