Martin Scorsese Masterclass in Cannes services and offers



The trap

Director: Marina Danezi.
When you are caught, unsuspected, to The Trap, it is almost certain that the end has come. “The Trap” is a documentary film about the restitution of disabled / handicapped people. A glance at psychiatric institutions (operating as storages of human beings) and endangered guest houses. All that during Christmas time in Athens of 2009. Our hero, Dionysis, is 34 years old and lives with his mother. He is quadriplegic and suffers from a slight mental retardation. He loves Sunday “strolls”, singing, talking on the phone and secretly drinking coca cola. His future is uncertain. In his own words: “Today’s society is a very tough place to live. Ok, our parents will eventually go but what is there left to see for us children?”


Director: Bill Kalamakis.
An old, isolated woman, has an unexpected caller during a storm. After many years of isolation, she opens the door to the stranger. Finally they share their loneliness, and much more..

A Diamond Forms Under Pressure

Director: Ocusonic.
A Diamond Forms Under Pressure, is an anomaly existing somewhere between experimental film and music video, computer animation/ programming, science and art. An improvised electronic soundtrack drives proprietary software, which analyses the frequency content of the audio and generates a cogent synchronous image in real-time. Frequencies push and pull against each other stabilising or agitating the central image.

Song for Argyris: A Brave Piece of Work by Stefan Haupt

THE August screening in Bangkok of Stefan Haupt's "A Song for Argyris" is still on my mind, even though a month has gone by and I have seen more than 20 movies since. Haupt is of Swiss-German extraction which makes this documentary all the more extraordinary, because it tells the true story of terrible atrocities committed by the Nazis during their occupation of Greece in WWII. Haupt lives in Zurich and wasn't in Bangkok for the screening, but he is on record as ack...
