Drugi dan festivala započeo je projekcijom filma „Lola“ Rainera Wernera Fassbindera, o malom bavarskom gradiću u kojem uspješna elita kontrolira i izrabljuje siromašne, što je autoru poslužilo kao metafora njemačke korumpiranosti.

Zatim su prikazani filmovi „Veronikin dvostruki život“, „Bez kraja“ i „Žrtva“ Krzysztofa Kieslowskog, jednog od najutjecajnijih suvremenih poljskih filmskih redatelja i scenarista, dobitnika brojnih nagrada na filmskim festivalima te nominiranog za Oskara za najbolju režiju. 

U kinu Pjaca predstavljen je dobitnik šest nagrada German film awards „Ajme meniJan Ole Gerstera, čija radnja prati mladića koji polako postaje autsajder u vlastitom životu te se mora suočiti s posljedicama svojih odluka kad ga liječnici proglase psihički nestabilnim.

Nakon toga, u filmu „Bijela kućaRanka Paukovića smo doznali je li Washingtonska Bijela Kuća doista sagrađena od bračkog kamena te što taj kamen predstavlja ljudima koji od njega žive.

U kinu Riva troje je autora predstavilo svoje filmove, nakon kojih su razgovarali s publikom.

Irena Škorić predstavila je svoj kratki film „I love YU“ i otkrila neke zanimljivosti o snimanju filma koje su se događale „iza kamere“. Romantično-nostalgičnu radnju inspirirala je pjesma „Bila je tako lijepa“ Dragana Stojnića, koja je i lajtmotiv cijelog filma dok pratimo nježnu ljubavnu priču dvoje glavnih aktera. Kako bi se dodatno pojačao osjećaj „povratka“ u prošlost, neke su scene filma snimljene Super 8 kamerom.

Leo Vitasović i Fran Grgić publici su otkrili razloge koji su ih naveli da snime film „Govorna pošta“. Film prati život dvojice štićenika doma za nezbrinutu djecu koji s punoljetnošću, još nespremni za samostalan život, napuštaju dom i donose neke krive odluke koje će ih obilježiti za čitav život. Autori su nam objasnili kako je ovaj film satkan od nekoliko istinitih priča i detalja iz života stvarnih osoba te da su na ovaj način željeli skrenuti pažnju na probleme o kojima se u našem društvu vrlo malo govori.

Olga Kosanović u filmu „Dizalo“ kroz likove je premostila tri generacije ljudi raznih profila. Dizalo je povezalo mladog pisca, zaigranu djevojčicu i jednog starca, ali i cijelu ekipu filma koja je od početna tri člana kroz snimanje narasla na brojku od 30 entuzijastičnih volontera.

Olga nam je povjerila kako ni teški uvjeti snimanja nisu poljuljali entuzijazam i snažnu volju filmske ekipe, koja je radila na velikoj hladnoći i uz gotovo nikakvu financijsku podršku.

 

Iz programa hrvatske i kratke selekcije prikazani su još i „Premladzavožnju“ (MarijaStonyte), „Cvrčak“ (MarkoJukić), „Vlog“ (BrunoPavić) te dobitnik mnogobrojnih nagrada „Slušaj“ (Rungano Nyoni, Hamy Ramezan).

A MAGICAL ATMOSPHERE MARKS DAY TWO OF THE FESTIVAL

 

The second day of the festival began with a screening of Rainer Werner Fassbinder’s Lola, about a small Bavarian town where the poor and underprivileged suffer under the control of a powerful elite, providing Fassbinder with an ideal cinematic metaphor for German corruption.

Following this, the Salon Theatre screened “The Double Life of Veronique”, “No End” and “The Sacrifice” by Krzysztof Kieslowski, one of Poland’s most influential contemporary filmmakers, having won numerous awards at festivals around the world, as well as an Oscar nomination for best director.

 

The theatre Pjaca presented Jan Ole Gerstera’s, Oh Boy, winner of six German film awards. The film follows a young man who, through a series of events, gradually becomes an outsider in his own life and who must then deal with the consequences of his decisions when he’s diagnosed as being ‘emotionally unstable’.

The second screening was of Ranka Pauković’s White House, which investigates the myth that the White House was built using white stone from the island of Brač, and also explores the lives of the people who work with this stone, every day.

Three directors were on-hand to discuss their films, all of which were projected in the Riva cinema.

Irena Škorić presented her short film “I Love YU” and gave the audience several interesting, “behind-the-scenes” glimpses into the making of her short. This romantic-nostalgic work, inspired by the song “She Was So Pretty” by Dragan Stojnić, follows the romantic love between the two leading roles. While the gentle strumming of the iconic song provides the background music, the nostalgic feel of the film was further enhanced by the use of a Super 8 camera.

 

Leo Vitasović and Fran Grgić spoke to the audience about the events that inspired them to film their short, “Voicemail”. The film follows the lives of two boys from a foster home that, upon turning eighteen, are released into the world to find their own way as adults. Their youth and inexperience lead them through a gamut of wrong decisions that prove detrimental to their futures. The filmmakers explained that the film is based on true stories and on episodes from the lives of real people. In this way, they wished to draw people’s attention to the real problems that people face, to which society often chooses to turn a blind eye.

 

In her short film “Elevator”, Olga Kosanović bridges three generations of characters. The elevator links a young writer, a playful little girl and an old man but as the filming progressed, the number of connected characters grew to thirty enthusiastic volunteers.

Olga revealed to the audience how difficult the filming was but how neither the extreme cold nor the lack of financial incentives could dampen the spirits of the exceptional cast and crew.

 

Other films shown from the Croatian and Short Critique programme included “Too Young to Drive” (MarijaStonyte), “Cricket” (MarkoJukić), “Vlog” (BrunoPavić) and finally the multi-award winning “Listen” (Rungano Nyoni, Hamy Ramezan).
