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.
This is a story about a family which gathered a variety of experiences throughout the 20th century including displacement, expulsion, and being deprived of one's roots. Despite the generation gaps and varying motivations, the members of each generation seem to follow a similar pattern, leave their homes around certain age. The oldest family member was sent to Siberia during WWII, his son left Poland for Israel in 1969; while his granddaughter decided to leave from Israel in order to study in the U.S. Farewells and returns intertwine as a constant motif in the family's history. What effects can such accumulation of experience have? How did the family adjust to constant changes? What is worth taking with you if one is leaving home forever?
