Superzebraman

Director: HORACI GARCIA, ORIOL FAURA Y JAVIER URTASUN.
SUPERZEBRAMAN, a documentary about how to make the first Spanish Nigerian production of the history without having a clue. The scene: Nollywood, the Nigerian film industry that produces the largest number of films in the world, over the powerful Hollywood and Bollywood industries. A concept of the cinema in which the movies are rolled in two weeks and for less than 20.000 dollars, accessibly a priori and which Javier Urtasun believed attainable. The thing is that this special look to the seventh art definitively is a world full of possibilities, or at least this was what Javier Urtasun thought.

Born in agreement to the requirements of script of the Nigerian industry, SUPERZEBRAMAN (The movie) counts the history of a man who changes the color of his skin thanks to the power of the zebras. An ambiguous starting point that constitutes the first step of a way riddled with anecdotes gathered in this delirious documentary.

Probably after seeing the documentary we will understand why this first Spanish Nigerian film was never done before: it is necessary to have testicles. Great ode to life and to the dreams that it we should never stop fulfilling, in SUPERZEBRAMAN (The Documentary) you realize that though the producer is drunk and the director does not appear, the important thing is to know that the perimeter is defended by a good number of AK47.

The Balkans Beyond Borders Short Film Festival

In June 2011 the Balkans Beyond Borders Short Film Festival travels to Athens, where  the headquarters of the eponymous NGO organising the festival is based. This year, similar to last year, young artists from the Balkan region and beyond (Southeast Europe) up to the age of 30 are invited to create their own short films on a pre-defined subject. Entries are accepted from the 1st of November 2010 until the 31st of March 2011. This year’s edition will tackle the topical subject of crises, and aspiring artists will be invited to address the question of “Who’s afraid of the Big Bad Crises?”.

Crises have always been a reality in people’s lives and most of the time we are facing difficult situations which confront us to the different faces of crisis. But how do we define crises and what are we afraid of? Can crises serve as opportunities?

The Balkans Beyond Borders Short Film Festival 2011

 

 

In June 2011 the Balkans Beyond Borders Short Film Festival travels to Athens, where  the headquarters of the eponymous NGO organising the festival is based. This year, similar to last year, young artists from the Balkan region and beyond (Southeast Europe) up to the age of 30 are invited to create their own short films on a pre-defined subject. Entries are accepted from the 1st of November 2010 until the 31st of March 2011.  This year’s edition will tackle the topical subject of crises, and aspiring artists will be invited to address the question of “Who’s afraid of the Big Bad Crises?”.

 

Crises have always been a reality in people’s lives and most of the time we are facing difficult situations which confront us to the different faces of crisis. But how do we define crises and what are we afraid of? Can crises serve as opportunities?

 

The festival addresses young people, up to 30 years old, interested in creatively expressing their ideas about the Balkans region through film making. Balkans Beyond Borders encourages all young people to participate regardless their social, cultural or religious background.

 

The films can be documentaries or fiction, animations, recorded performances and they must address the subject of the call, having no more than 30 minutes length. The official language of the competition is English.

 

More information on how to apply is available on the Balkans Beyond Borders website:

www.balkansbeyondborders.eu

 

Balkans beyond Borders (BBB), a non- profit organization, intends to promote cooperation in the Balkans and encourage  young artists to reflect on current political and economical issues in their region.  

 

BBB started as an Initiative in the framework of Southeast Europe and the EU Leadership and Development Programme (LDP) and is now a non-profit organization based in Athens with the  purpose of  promote intercultural dialogue and an innovative way of learning through the art of film-making and image. Moreover, BBB aims to support young artists from Balkans and promote their work on both local and European level.

 To this aim, the Balkans Beyond Borders Film Festival will travel to a different Balkan city each year addressing a different subject. The Festival will be reinforced by a number of supporting activities throughout the year including, seminars, exhibitions, workshops, other cultural events, as well as collaborations with local and international film festivals.

Piotr: A Mistranslation

Director: Martín Seeger.
Piotr Herroll’s family had to leave Nacrovia and now lives in exile in Santiago de Chile. Young Piotr is sent to find work. A friend points him out that the Chilean State supports artists; so, he comes up with a play about the story of his unknown country. This carries several problems: he must have Chilean actors, who are less concerned about the meaning of his work. Also, his citizenship credentials are not very reliable. And the language barrier will result in a series of mix ups that will end altering the play. The film is spoken in a made up language, Nacrovese. The continuing use of subtitles is incorporated into the plot games, making Piotr Herroll a unpredictable hero and turning the film into a sharp comedy about the essence of the Chilean self.
