Helena Třeštíková / Czech Republic / 2015 / 101 mins / Czech with English subtitles / Documentary

“Superior ‘time-lapse’ documentary filmmaking…Helena Třeštíková hits another one out of the park.” – The Hollywood Reporter.

 

Filmed over 13 years, internationally renowned Czech documentarian Helena Třeštíková’s Mallory offers an empathic and gritty immersion into the life of a captivating protagonist. Facing homelessness, depression, drug addiction and a son in state care, Mallory struggles to survive in the unforgiving streets of Prague and a Kafkaesque bureaucracy. The odds may be severely stacked against her, but Mallory is a true force of intelligence, resilience and tenacity that never falters in this remarkable ‘time-collective’ documentary. Winning the Grand Prix at Třeštíková’s native Karlovy Vary International Film Festival, Mallory is a documentary that is as heartbreaking, as it is ultimately hopeful.

 

This film has been exempt from classification and is restricted to people over 18 years.
