WHITE AS SNOW, an interview with Selim and Nur Gunes

user
One of the most memorable films I have seen this past year was the haunting and lyrical film WHITE AS SNOW (Turkey, 2010) by director Selim Gunes and producer Nur Gunes.

The producer Jozko Rutar: "Silent Sonata" is a war film without soldiers

user
Jozko RutarBulgarian cinephiles know well the name of Jozko Rutar, the producer of Silent Sonata (A.K.A. Circus Fantasticus) from another cult Slovenian film, Jan Cvitkovic’ Gravehopping (2005).

PRAHA DRESDEN BERLIN

#
Director: MILTOS POULOS.
“The philosophers have only interpreted the world in various ways. The point is to change it.” It is about Marx’s 11th point on Feuerbach as well as it defines the main sentence in a personal-poetic storyboard with sounds, music and pictures. Pictures that claim memories of the past. Pictures haunting the present, piercing and conjuring it. Pictures that could make the opening to the main Game of a millennium which has already started to dawn, the third one, one which looks like it has more things on its head.
