„Poklonite osmijeh! Svima i kad god to uzmognete. Osmijeh nosite na licu, a kad ga nekome poklonite, ta ga osoba nastavlja nositi u svojem srcu,“ poručio je publici Peter Ercolano, redatelj filma „Zaraza“ prikazanog sinoć u prepunom kinu Riva.

 

„Zaraza“ govori upravo o tome, kako nam je taj osmijeh zapravo svima potreban, a koliko je u današnjem svijetu malo smijeha. Snimljen je u suradnji sa štićenicima mentalne ustanove, koji su s redateljem sudjelovali u svim fazama snimanja, od odabira teme, pripreme i samog snimanja. Iako su u teškoj životnoj situaciji, akteri filma vrlo su ozbiljno pristupili produkciji i, kako autor kaže, na setu su jedini problem bila česta prekidanja snimanja izazvana bujicama smijeha.

Film „Za nju se ženim“ ispočetka je svojom temom zbunio publiku, budući da se u njemu glavni akter ženi vlastitom majkom. No kada je Albert Arcas Pons, autor filma, pojasnio kako je film baziran na istinitoj priči o njegovim roditeljima koji boluju od Alzheimerove bolesti, publika ga je pozdravila stojećim ovacijama.

Autoru je ovo debitantski film i njime je želio skrenuti pažnju na ovu tešku bolest bez obzira što mu, kako kaže, ispočetka nije bilo lako „ogoliti“ se i dijeliti svoje najintimnije trenutke s gledateljima. Priznao je da je upravo humor i smijeh jedini način da se takvi trenuci prebrode.

Autorski par iz Slovenije, Tijana Zinajić i Gregor Andolšek predstavili su nam svoj film „Priče iz wc-a“ i opisali iskustvo zajedničkog rada na filmu. Film prati troje ljudi koji se nalaze na životnoj prekretnici i, svaki na svoj način, pokušava prihvatiti životnu situaciju u kojoj se nalazi, ali i izmjeniti je na bolje.

Večer na Rivi zaokružila je simpatična „Muha“, kratki film o dječijoj mašti u kojoj nacrtana muha oživljava i zadaje muke djevojčici tijekom školskog sata.

Ovaj kratki film dobitnik je nekoliko nagrada na festivalima, između ostalih i za glavnu ulogu koju je odigrala izvrsna Carlotta Ligalupo.

Nicolo Grossi, pomoćnik redatelja na filmu, posebno je pozdravio polaznike OFF filmske škole, budući je ekipa ovog filma svoj zanat ispekla na sličnoj radionici.

OFF DAY THREE – A DAY FULL OF SMILES

“Give the gift of a smile! To everyone and whenever you can. You carry your smile on your face and when you smile at someone, that person then carries it in their heart,” said Peter Ercolano to a full audience at last night’s screening of his short film, “Contagion.”

“Contagion” talks about exactly this, how smiling is essential to everyone’s well-being, and yet how little everyone in today’s world actually smiles. When Ercolano is not busy working on film projects, he spends his time as a clown, working with mental health patients, in Italy. This film was almost entirely created in cooperation with patients from the mental health centre where Ercolano clowns – from choosing a theme for the film, to all the preparations and the final filming. Notwithstanding their difficult personal life situations, the actors (all with severe mental health issues) took their roles seriously and, according to the director, the only on-set problems had to do with frequent delays caused by too much laughter and smiling.

From the outset, the film, “I’ll Get Married, For Her” confused the audience with its subtle plot twist, wherein the protagonist prepares for his wedding…to his own mother. But Albert Arcas Pons, the film’s director, soon enlightened the spectators to the fact that the film is based on the true story of his parents, both of whom suffer from advanced Alzheimers – the realisation earned him an enthusiastic standing ovation.

With his debut film, the director was determined to shed a light on this debilitating illness even though, at the start, he’d found it difficult to be so open with his private life. He admitted that humour and laughter were the only things that got him through the toughest moments.

The Slovenian director-duo, Tijana Zinajić and Gregor Andolšek introduced their film Toilet Stories, and told the audience about their experiences of being in a romantic relationship and living together, while filming. The film follows the lives of three people who find themselves at a crossroads and each of them, in their own way, tries to accept the situation and to change it, for the better.

The evening on the Riva ended with “The Fly”, the much-loved short film about children’s imagination, where a drawing of a fly magically comes to life and torments a young girl in her classroom. This short film has been the recipient of many festival awards, including one for lead actor, for the young star, Carlotta Ligalupo.

Nicolo Grossi, the fifteen-year-old assistant director of “The Fly”, gave special mention to the OFF film school as he, too, became involved with this short film through connections he’d made attending a film workshop, in Italy.

The feature film Diplomacy, by Volker Schlöndorff, depicted the power of words and the determination of one man, who took it upon himself to convince the German military governor of Paris under the Occupation, to disobey Hitler’s direct orders and to not destroy the fabled city under his control.
