Anyone who missed a Meltingpot guest (or all of them) live on site, may now follow the unique insight in the inner worlds of the personalities of the forum from the comforts of their homes through the movie project, Voices of Meltingpot. “We want to preserve the inspiration and energy which the important and influential guests of the forum radiated and delivered to the audiences on site,” said the founder and curator of Forum Meltingpot, Ms Zlata Holušová. The speeches are recorded by a special camera with a one-way mirror which makes the viewers feel as if the personality on screen is talking to them. The exceptional feel of the videos is also appreciated by the speakers. “Individual personalities in the videos reflect the wide range of cultures and experiences which, like instruments in an orchestra, work together to produce a symphony accompanying the spirit of Voices of Meltingpot,” said Dan
Millman, author of the famous novel Way of the Peaceful Warrior. One of the most popular interviews in the project of Voices of Meltingpot is the speech by Mark Gungor who said, “Thank you for making me part of the project. Forum Meltingpot was an incredible experience to me. The audience was amazing, longing to hear each and every word. That is a speaker’s dream come true.” Organizers believe that this wasn’t Mark Gungor’s last visit to Forum Meltingpot. The 4th year of Forum Meltingpot will take place at Vítkovice Lower Area in Ostrava during the festival Colours of Ostrava, July 17-20, 2019.
