Freedom? Arabic focus on the 35th Göteborg International Film Festival

Film Festival News Break...Cairo, Egypt!

user

The Birthday

Director: Luiza Parvu.
Adina tries to make a birthday for herself, but this is not an easy job for a lonely bus ticket saleswoman, living alone in the old apartment of her late parents. She finds an unusual way of spending the day, when she decides to call a professional party entertainer agency.The Birthday is a sincere and sensitive short film about the need to get close to someone and, at the same time, the impossibility of doing it. The motivation of the Abu Dhabi Film Festival Short Competition jury, who awarded this film with the 2nd Prize was: 'The jury found this film effectively acted and directed to express a young woman's sense of isolation, but there is a stubborn hope in despair which resonated with us.'

After a week in Abu Dhabi for the Abu Dhabi Film Festival (October 14-23) 2010, I am now in London for the BFI LFF. While screening some fantastic (and some not so fantastic) films here at the BFI LFF, I took the opportunity to go outside of the festival to see Blumhouse Productions' latest super hit, 'Paranormal Activity 2'. And wow, what a pleasant surprise! I love this film. While I appreciated the first, I rave about the sequel. Most people I talk to roll their eyes when they hear 'Paranorm...
