Hugh Hudson: Sport is a form of pure art

user
  Sport is a form of pure art, an individualistic form of art. Even collective sports like football are art in themselves. Yes, sport is definitely an art – water jumps are so beautiful, archery as well. There is something else as well – collective sports like football, volleyball, basketball create a feeling of togetherness, commitment, family. Individual sports such as running, on the other hand, inspire you to challenge yourself every day. The goal off course is not to w...

Konstantin Bozhanov: “It is not necessary to take a ship to go to a non-existent village on the Danube”

user
Ave is one of the most highly anticipated films of the year. The work keeps the viewers in a natural suspense that is not a filmmaking trick but the core of the story told – universal on one hand, but on the other hand, somehow corresponding to the local reality (just before the start of the shooting Konstanin Bozhanov was offered to rewrite the script and moving the story to Seattle, but he refused because it didn’t seem natural to him). A film with very dark and poorly lit sp...
