RENÉ

RENÉ

René is a long-term documentary that tells an extraordinary story – filmed over 20 years – about a character on the edge of society. The documentary director Helena Třeštíková follows through these 20 years the life of René, habitual criminal – who even robbed the director at a certain point. He was sent to prison for the first time at the age of 16 and as a constant backslider, never lived a proper life. (Frederikke Lett, European Film Academy)

Helena Třeštíková, born 1949 in Prague, Czech Republic. She studied documentary filmmaking at the Prague Film Academy and, since graduating in 1974, has been working as a professional filmmaker, shooting more than thirty documentaries of various lengths. Her films have been the subject of retrospectives at several major festivals. // Films (selected): DOTEK SVĚTLA (Touch of Light, 1980, doc), MARCELA (2007, doc), RENÉ (2008, doc; CE '09), SOUKROMÝ VESMÍR (Private Universe, 2012, doc; CE '13), VOJTA LAVIČKA: NAHORU A DOLŮ (Vojta Lavička: Ups and Downs, 2013, doc), MALLORY (2015), LÍDA BAAROVÁ - ZKÁZA KRÁSOU / LÍDA BAAROVÁ – DOOMED BEAUTY (2016)
