Elias Demetriou: I had no ambition to leave my country, but in the end it left me”

After The Battle: a Film Review

user
    Xan Brooks from The Guardian says, "Veteran director Yousry Nasrallah makes a melodrama out of a crisis in After The Battle, a film hewn from the headlines of the Egyptian revolution that crash-lands in the Cannes competition on the basis of its urgent topicality, a heart-on-sleeve narrative, and not a whole lot else. Try as I might, I can't see it troubling the judges."A producer from the Short Film Corner at the 65th Cannes Film Festival said that it was a g...

2012 LOS ANGELES GREEK FILM FESTIVAL LINEUP REFLECTS GREECE’S STRUGGLES

ZAPATOS-CHAUSSURES-SHOES

Director: JAVIER ERCILLA & VICTORIA PLAZA.
Little more than seven minutes unfold step by step with a spirit of fantasy, reflection, sensations and empathy... Seven minutes that walk together with the spectators, with their capacity to read in images the feeling of the feet with their experiences, and that wander in the mind of who wears each of the shoes. Walking amongst photographs in black and white, in color and in neon. Moving forward on the path of thinking through images and sound To feel, somehow, that the steps are never lost... Poco más de siete minutos que se dibujan paso a paso con ánimo de fantasía, reflexión, sensación y empatía… Siete minutos que caminan con el espectador, con su capacidad de leer en imágenes el sentir de los pies, con sus vivencias y que deambulan en la mente de quien lleva cada uno de los zapatos. Caminar entre fotografías en blanco y negro, en color y en neón. Avanzar por el camino de la reflexión visual y sonora. Sentir, de alguna manera, que los pasos no son nunca perdidos… Un peu plus de sept minutes qui se dessinent pas à pas, avec un esprit de fantaisie, de réflexion, de sensation et d'empathie... Sept minutes qui marchent avec le spectateur, avec sa capacité de lire en images les sensations des pieds avec ses expériences, et qui déambulent dans l'esprit de celui qui porte chaque soulier. Marcher entre des photographies en noir et blanc, en couleur et en néon. Avancer sur le chemin de la réflexion visuelle et sonore. Sentir, d'une certaine façon, que les pas ne sont jamais perdus...
