Conclusion of the Slovenian Film Retrospective in Los Angeles

user
The last week of the Slovenian Film Retrospective at the Hammer Museum in September was as memorable as the first, which I wrote about in two previous blog posts.   I was unfortunately not able to see the next two films in the series, Dance in the Rain, an enigmatic love story that (to quote the program) “masterfully weighs whether life’s plateaus are cause for disillusion or hope,” and Sand Castle, a “tour-de-force of absurdist, physical comedy [that] subtly ...

Berlin 61 Kicks Off with True Grit

user
If  John Wayne is up there watching from the Great Beyond in the Sky over Berlin, he must be truly gritting his teeth to see a younger Good Ole Boy, name o' Jeff Bridges, reaping the kudos and leading the pack into Potsdamer Platz on opening night, while wearing the same black eye-patch Wayne did in the original version of this gritty All-American western. Of course, Big John did pick up an Oscar for his turn as Rooster Cogburn, the alcoholic, one-eyed, straight-shooting lawman, back in 1969...

The King, The Swan And The BAFTAS

user
BAFTA, the British Academy of Film and Television Arts, has announced its "longlists", a rather quaint annual exercise that reduces the number of potential candidates for BAFTA Awards to 15. At the moment, in one of the key races of the awards season, the historical epic THE KING'S SPEECH and the ballet-goes-mad BLACK SWAN are tied for most mentions (to be translated in a few weeks time to most nominations). Not far behind are the films INCEPTION and THE SOCIAL NETWORK. The Leading Actor candi...

El Misterio de las Lagunas, Fragmentos Andinos (The Mystery of the Lagoons, Andean Fragments)

user
Director: Atahualpa Lichy.
« The Mystery of the Lagoons, Andean Fragments » has as a principal stage the so called « Villages of the South », located in the region of the Venezuelan Andes. These lost villages were isolated among mountains, until a few years ago. Even though the access using four wheel drive vehicles started bringing in the “civilization” the traditions are kept, while in places with an easier access these are disappearing. The stories told with humor by the peasants and artisans will allow us to recreate old times. Trough them, we will have a lesson of life. They will tell and sing their stories for us, often accompanied by the typical Andean violin, with its rustic sound, by the guitar or the cuatro, a kind of small four string guitar which is the traditional Venezuelan instrument. The “taitas”, the Indians’ ancestors, left record of their pass in the Venezuelan Andes and their mark has remained alive in the daily life and in certain practices and believes imbued in a marked syncretism. Even when the general image of the Andean is of a fervently catholic people, we find ourselves before the presence of the “Mohanes” powerful Shamans, who still keep the secret language to dominate the elements of Nature, they are respected and feared at the same time. We will travel backwards in time, following the thread that created the legends, through oral tradition and songs that will reveal a collective conscience and the characteristics of their culture.
