POSTER

 

Tα νέα μας (13)

Μέσα σε ζεστό κλίμα παρέας, παρά το κρύο που επικρατούσε χτες βράδυ, Τετάρτη 4/12, έριξε αυλαία το 32ο Πανόραμα Ευρωπαϊκού Κινηματογράφου, με την τελετή λήξης στον κινηματογράφο Τριανόν και το πάρτυ που ακολούθησε, στο bar Matchpoint.

Στην τελετή, με οικοδεσπότη, όπως πάντα, τον Διευθυντή του Φεστιβάλ, Νίνο Φένεκ Μικελίδη, και παρουσία πολλών ανθρώπων του κινηματογράφου, απονεμήθηκαν τα τιμητικά βραβεία, καθώς και τα βραβεία του Διαγωνιστικού Τμήματος, από τις 4 επιτροπές της φετινής διοργάνωσης, ενώ ακολούθησε η προβολή, σε πανελλαδική πρεμιέρα, της ταινίας της Haifaa Al Mansour “The Perfect Candidate” (Σαουδική Αραβία).
Ο Νίνος Μικελίδης, αφού έκανε μια ανασκόπηση του φετινού φεστιβάλ, αναφερόμενος στα μεγάλα αφιερώματα, τους καλεσμένους και τις πρεμιέρες της διοργάνωσης, ευχαρίστησε θερμά όλους τους φορείς, τους υποστηρικτές και τους χορηγούς επικοινωνίας
της 32ης διοργάνωσης, ενώ στο τέλος της τελετής, ευχήθηκε να εξασφαλιστούν και την επόμενη χρονιά οι πόροι (πράγμα όλο και πιο δύσκολο, όπως ανέφερε χαρακτηριστικά), ώστε το φεστιβάλ να γιορτάσει το 2020 τα 33α γενέθλιά του!

Αναλυτικά τα βραβεία του φεστιβάλ, με τη σειρά που απονεμήθηκαν:

(Μέλη: Ιωσηφίνα Κοντέση, Στέλιος Πετρουλάκης & Σπύρος Χειμωνάκης)

Το βραβείο απονεμήθηκε στην ταινία
STITCHES | Σερβία | 105’
Σκηνοθεσία: Miroslav Terzic | Sales: Cercamon

Το σκεπτικό της απόφασης:
Εμείς, ως η κριτική επιτροπή των αναγνωστών του περιοδικού «Αθηνόραμα», επιλέξαμε τη σερβική ταινία “Stitches | Ράμματα” , του Μίροσλαβ Τέρζιτς, η οποία θίγει το ζήτημα της εμπορίας βρεφών, που μάστιζε τη χώρα τη δεκαετία του ’90, αμέσως μετά τον εμφύλιο πόλεμο και το διαμελισμό της πρώην Γιουγκοσλαβίας. Πέρα από το σενάριο και τον σκηνοθετικό χειρισμό, μας εντυπωσίασε η έξοχη ερμηνεία της πρωταγωνίστριας και η φωτογραφία, η οποία προβάλλει με εξαιρετικό τρόπο τα «ράμματα» στις πληγές του μετεμφυλιακού Βελιγραδίου, που δεν έχουν επουλωθεί 20 χρόνια μετά.

Επιτροπή μελών της Πανελλήνιας ‘Ενωσης Κριτικών Κινηματογράφου
(Γεράσιμος Βάκρος, Δημήτρης Κολιοδήμος & Θόδωρος Σούμας)

Το βραβείο απονεμήθηκε στην ταινία
Η ΑΝΑΚΡΙΣΗ / The Interrogation | Ελλάδα | 80’
Σκηνοθεσία: Παναγιώτης Πορτοκαλάκης | Sales: Viewmaster Films

Το σκεπτικό της απόφασης:
Το βραβείο της Πανελλήνιας Ένωσης Κριτικών Κινηματογράφου απονέμεται στην ταινία Η ΑΝΑΚΡΙΣΗ, του Παναγιώτη Πορτοκαλάκη, για την εύστοχη και πειστική αναμόχλευση του κοντινού παρελθόντος της χώρας μας, που αποδίδεται με επαγγελματική επιδεξιότητα, αφηγηματική οικονομία και σκηνοθετική άνεση, μέσω δύο καλά σκιαγραφημένων σημερινών χαρακτήρων – μιας οργισμένης νεαρής αντιεξουσιάστριας και του συμβιβασμένου αριστερού, βασανισμένου από τη χούντα πατέρα της.


ΒΡΑΒΕΙΟ FIPRESCI – ΘΟΔΩΡΟΣ ΑΓΓΕΛΟΠΟΥΛΟΣ

Επιτροπή μελών της Διεθνούς Ομοσπονδίας Κριτικών Κινηματογράφου (FIPRESCI)
Τάσος Γουδέλης, Vecdi Sayar (Τουρκία), Alena Sycheva – Ρωσία

Το βραβείο απονεμήθηκε στην ταινία
PASSED BY CENSOR | Τουρκία, Γερμανία, Γαλλία | 96’
Σκηνοθεσία: Serhat Karaaslan | Sales: Bac Films

Το σκεπτικό της απόφασης:
Τα μέλη της επιτροπής της FIPRESCI του 32ου Πανοράματος Ευρωπαϊκού Κινηματογράφου αποφάσισαν να απονείμουν το βραβείο ΘΟΔΩΡΟΣ ΑΓΓΕΛΟΠΟΥΛΟΣ στην Τουρκο-Γαλλο-Γερμανική συμπαραγωγή με τίτλο "Görülmüştür" (Passed by Censor). Η ταινία αντανακλά, με λεπτό, διακριτικό τρόπο τα κοινωνικά και διανοητικά ζητήματα ενός αξιωματικού των φυλακών, που ελέγχει την αλληλογραφία των κρατουμένων. Ασκώντας κριτική στο σύστημα φυλακών της Τουρκίας, η ταινία παράλληλα εστιάζει στη σχέση μεταξύ μύθου και πραγματικότητας και μεταφέρει πειστικά στο θεατή την αναζήτηση του ήρωα για δικαιοσύνη καθώς και τα ερωτικά του συναισθήματα. Ο σκηνοθέτης Serhat Karaaslan χειρίζεται το στοιχείο της μεταφοράς , συνδέοντας την έννοια της λογοκρισίας
με τις μεθόδους δημιουργικής γραφής που διδάχθηκε.

Το σκεπτικό της απόφασης:
Η Επιτροπή του 32ου Πανοράματος Ευρωπαϊκού Κινηματογράφου αποφάσισε ομόφωνα να αποδώσει εύφημο μνεία στη σέρβικη ταινία «Stitches» του Μιροζλάβ Τέρζικ. Για την ευαίσθητη και διεισδυτική προσέγγιση σε μία απ' τις πιο τραγικές συνέπειες του εμφυλίου στην πρώην Γιουγκοσλαβία, την εξαπάτηση των γονέων και την αρπαγή των φυσικών παιδιών τους.

Το σκεπτικό της απόφασης:
Η Επιτροπή του 32ου Πανοράματος Ευρωπαϊκού Κινηματογράφου αποφάσισε ομόφωνα να δώσει το βραβείο καλύτερης ξένης ταινίας στην συμπαραγωγή Τουρκίας, Γερμανίας και Γαλλίας, “Passed by censor” του Serhat Karaaslan. Για το πώς ο κεντρικός χαρακτήρας αντιλαμβάνεται την υπάρχουσα πραγματικότητα, η οποία επιδέχεται πολλά επίπεδα «ανάγνωσης», άρτια ενορχηστρωμένη από τον σκηνοθέτη. Για μία ιστορία, επίσης, που αναγάγει το προσωπικό δράμα του ήρωα σε συλλογικό, για το καθεστώς λογοκρισίας στις τουρκικές φυλακές και για το πατριαρχικό μοντέλο της τουρκικής οικογένειας.

The Perfect Candidate Haifaa Al Mansour poster

 

About the film:
Maryam is an ambitious young doctor working in a small town clinic in Saudi Arabia. Despite her qualifications, she has to earn the respect of male colleagues and acceptance from her patients every day. After Maryam is prevented from traveling to Dubai in search of a better job, a bureaucratic mixup leads her to stumble on the application for her local city elections and she decides to run. With her musician father away on tour playing the first public concerts allowed in the Kingdom in decades, Maryam enlists her two younger sisters to begin fundraising and planning campaign events. While they face the restriction of women's traditional roles in the Kingdom at every turn, Maryam's audacious candidacy starts to build momentum and challenges her conservative community. A tight race emerges between Maryam and her male opponent, as Maryam and her family mobilise their determination and creativity to move their traditional society forward.

About the director:
Haifaa al-Mansour is one of the country's best-known and most controversial directors, and the first female Saudi filmmaker. With her father's encouragement, she studied comparative literature at The American University in Cairo. She later completed a master's degree in Film Studies from University of Sydney, Australia.

PRESALE
VIVA.GR and at the cinemas

Another Tribute of this year's 32nd Panorama of European Cinema is dedicated to

Woodstock and the year 1969.


The Festival is held from Thursday, November 21 to Wednesday, December 4, 2019 at TRIANON Cinema (21/11-4/12, Kodrigktonos 21) and ANDORA Cinema (28/11-4/12, Sevastoupoleos 117).

About this Tribute the Festival Director Ninos Mikelidis wrote:
“In the United States at the beginning of 1969, while the Vietnam War is still at its peak, Lyndon Johnson leaves the nation's presidency and Richard Nixon is inaugurated as the new President of the United States. At Memphis Studios Elvis Presley writes his version of the song “Long Black Limousine” from the famous album "From Elvis in Memphis". The strikes at Harvard and Berkeley University begin, with National Guard helicopters dispensing airborne tear gas to the students. The beginning of the modern gay rights movement begins at New York City. The whole world watches Neil Armstrong taking the very first step onto the moon's surface. The brutality of the My Lai killings and the official cover-up fueled anti-war sentiment in the United States over the Vietnam War. Manson's followers murder Sharon Tate. Black Panthers members are gunned down by police officers as they lie sleeping in Chicago, while the Woodstock Music & Art Festival is held in August and brings together famous singers and their bands, a three days festival celebration that was captured by Michael Wadleigh's camera.
In the same year, the so called "New Hollywood" movement introduces new subject matter, putting aside the glamour and false sentimentality of its conventional narrative, influenced by the national and international events of the time.  A series of films encapsulate this mood - “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid” and “Midnight Cowboy” considered the leading representatives- films that are infused with issues such as the Vietnam War, the fight for human and civil rights, student protests, political assassinations, the feminist movement, free love and abortion, and at the same time pose questions about the role of power, state violence and the role of the State.
The films we have chosen for this Tribute are centered on these particular themes.”

The following films will be screened during this Tribute:

About the film/Plot Summary

ES escapes from Palestine seeking an alternative homeland, only to find that Palestine is trailing behind him. The promise of a new life turns into a comedy of errors: however far he travels, from Paris to New York, something always reminds him of home. From award-winning director Elia Suleiman, a comic saga exploring identity, nationality and belonging, in which Suleiman asks the fundamental question: where is the place we can truly call home?

“Filmmaker and actor Elia Suleiman uses his own face and body to express the soul of Palestine in his films, and nowhere more so than in his droll new comedy, It Must Be Heaven.”
The Hollywood Reporter

“Suleiman’s comic method is sly subversive. His keenly observed episodes can seem like unrelated black comic incidents, until the whole fabric of his theme begins to appear.”
The New York Times

“Suleiman’s always a reliable charmer, with a penchant for funneling the language of Jacques Tati and Buster Keaton into moving-image editorials about his troubled homeland.”
Indiewire



The next day, on Friday the 22nd of November at 12.00 p.m., Elia Suleiman will be giving a masterclass at IANOS bookstore (Stadiou 24, Athens). More information will be announced shortly.

His essays and articles have been published in English, Arabian, and French.

His first feature film "Chronicle of a Disappearance" won the Best First Film Prize at the 1996 Venice Film Festival. His second feature "Divine Intervention" won the Jury Prize at the 2002 Cannes Film Festival and the International Critics Prize (FIPRESCI).

Today we give a sneak preview of our first Tribute entitled “Film Noir in the Greek Cinema”
About this Tribute the Festival Director Ninos Mikelidis wrote:


“Thanks to crime novels and Yannis Maris’ screenplays ("The Man on the Train", "Murder Backstage", "Crime in Kolonaki" and “Doubts") and thanks to Greek filmmakers’ love and persistence for this particular genre that emerged and flourished in Hollywood during the decades of 1940 and 1950, the film noir genre made its first striking appearance in Greece in the early 1960s.
A genre that stood out due to its dark atmosphere -all films were shot in black and white film which highlighted the ideal dark atmosphere borrowing many of its elements from German Expressionism)- due to its characters’ typology -femme fatale, flawed heroes- and finally due to its plot: violent crimes, underworld, betrayal and brutal violence.
Starting with Greek filmmakers such as Dinos Katsouridis, Erricos Andreou, Dinos Dimopoulos, Sokrates Kapsaskis followed by Giorgos Karypidis, Dimitris Stavrakas, Dimitris Panayiotatos, Nikos Grammatikos, Yannis Economides and Karolos Zonaras, Greek Cinema features an extensive list of films with noir elements that did not lose their beauty, atmosphere and dynamic through time.”

Concerning this year’s art exhibition Jannis Psychopedis stated:

‘’This year the Panorama of European Cinema celebrates its 32nd birthday. Nowadays Panorama is established as a cinematic institution that, apart from its durability over time, has every reason to proudly boast about the quality of its films displayed, its tributes as well as its artistic tendency and tradition. Furthermore Panorama is also proud of its audience: vigorous, restless and really committed to Panorama, its great audience supports and contributes significantly with its constant and overwhelming presence, to this enduring, long lasting and constantly renewed artistic effort.
In the past years along with the Panorama Screenings, an art exhibition has also been held as a parallel event related to the festival, seeking to express and find exactly where do film and visual arts really meet. […]
Stanley Kubrick was a cinematic giant in story-telling and hence a significant part of this year’s Panorama is dedicated to his work. Likewise, the art exhibition ‘’Artistic Trilogy – A discourse between Painting and Cinema’’ is also dedicated to this great director. […]’’
