Founded in 2001, the INSTITUTE OF DOCUMENTARY FILM (IDF) is a non-profit training and networking centre based in Prague, Czech Republic, focused on the support of East European documentary films and their wider promotion. Our activities support filmmakers through all stages of completion – development, funding, production, post-production, and distribution. We aim at individual filmmakers (tailored consultations), groups of carefully selected professionals with projects or films (Ex Oriente Film, East European Forum, East Silver, Doc Launch, etc.), broader professional community (East Doc Platform), as well as the general public (portal www.DOKweb.net). We closely work with key int. festivals, broadcasters, distributors, sales agents, markets, or training initiatives and serve as the GATEWAY TO EAST EUROPEAN DOCUMENTARY FILM.
Russia's nightmare - Chechnya. When they went to war, they were young and naive; they returned disillusioned and scarred for life.Petya and Kiril - who've just turned 18 - volunteers who serve on the front in Chechnya. Katya, a nurse, works in a field hospital in the war zone. None of them are the same when they come back. Crippled physically and emotionally, abandoned with their experiences of mutilations, torture and death.Over a three-year period Johann Feindt and Tamara Trampe observe the returnees trying to cope again in a society that represses awareness of the war. The Committee of Mothers of Russian Soldiers is the only place where they, along with the helpless parents, find like-minded people they can talk to.
