Da li ste se nekada zapitali da li postoji život izvan naše plave planete? Da li ste ikada maštali o susretu sa vanzemaljskim životom? Da li ste ikada razmišljali kako biste uspostavili komunikaciju sa takvim oblikom života, ako biste imali šansu? Više nema potrebe da se pitate jer će „The Farthest” odgovoriti na sva vaša pitanja.
Ovaj film nas vodi kroz priču o jednom od najvećih ljudskih dostignuća u istraživanju letelici Voyager Space Probes.
Od aluminijumske folije sa lokalne pijace koja je u poslednjem trenutku dodata da zaštiti letelicu od radijacije do jednog od Voyager-ovih legendarnih elemenata „Zlatne ploče” koja nosi čestitke, muziku i slike sa Zemlje za vanzemaljce koje bi mogao sresti. „The Farthest” otkriva kako je stvarana ova čuvena ploča i kako predstavlja čovečanstvo bićima koji bi mogli da je vide i čuju.
U ovom moćnom, poetskom dokumentarca „The Farthest“ slavi ovu veličanstvenu mašinu, muškarce i žene koji su je projektovali i viziju koja ih je odvela mnogo dalje nego što je iko mogao da sanja.
Dođite da vidite ono što je Escape into Film nazvao „Intimno ljubavno pismo nauci i tehnologiji”.

Have you ever wondered whether there’s life beyond this blue planet of ours? Have you ever dreamed of meeting extraterrestrial life? Have you ever thought about how you would communicate with such life if given the chance? There’s no need to wonder anymore because The Farthest has answered your questions.
The Farthest tells the captivating stories of one of humanity’s greatest achievements in exploration: the twin Voyager Space Probes. From the aluminium foil from the local market that was added at the last minute to protect the spacecraft from radiation; to one of Voyagers most iconic elements: The Golden Record, which carries greetings, music and images from Earth to any alien beings they might one day encounter. THE FARTHEST reveals how this famous record was created, and how it presents humanity to any creatures who may find it.
In this powerful, poetic and cinematic feature documentary, THE FARTHEST celebrates these magnificent machines, the men and women who built them and the vision that propelled them farther than anyone could ever have hoped.
Come and see what Escape into Film is calling: “An intimate love letter to science and technology.”

U ovom jedinstvenom i izuzetnom filmu jednog od najinovativnijih irskih filmskih stvaraoca, prvi put je ekranizovan život i rad Huberta Butler-a. Film prati put ovog pisca, od njegovog engleskog-irskog detinjstva i studija na Oksfordu, preko vremena provedenog u Staljinovoj Rusiji (gde je radio kao učitelj), života u nacističkoj Nemačkoj (gde je pomagao izbavljenju Jevreja), kao i boravka u međuratnoj Jugoslaviji, pa sve do kasnijih godina koje je proveo kao baštovan, pisac i javna ličnost u Maidenhall-u, okrug Kilkenny gde je njegova porodica živela već vek i po.

Projekciji će prethoditi razgovor sa Kris Agijem i Ejdanom Omalijem – „Vreme u Jugoslaviji – Hubert Butler and Rebecca West”. Videti stranu Vreme u Jugoslaviji za više informacija.  

In this unique and remarkable film by one of Ireland’s most innovative film-makers, Hubert Butler’s life and work are brought to the big screen for the first time. The film follows the writer’s journey from his Anglo-Irish childhood and study at Oxford; through his time in Stalinist Russia (where he worked as a teacher), Nazi Germany (where he helped expedite the escape of Jews), and interwar Yugoslavia; to his later life as a market-gardener, writer and public intellectual at Maidenhall, Co Kilkenny, where his family had lived for a century and a half.

Savremena arhitektura u Irskoj dostiže svoj vrhunac ranih 1960- ih a jedna od najistaknutijih figura bio je Robin Voker (Robin Walker). Četvrt veka nakon Robinove prerane smrti, njegov sin, Sajmon, takođe arhitekta osvrće se na očevu zaostavštinu.

Modern architecture in Ireland reaches its highpoint in the early 1960s and one of its most celebrated and influential figures was Robin Walker. A quarter of a century after Robin’s premature death, his son and, architect Simon addresses his father again and considers the legacy of his life’s work. Talking to my Father features two voices from two eras who are each concerned with how we (as an Irish) nation understand the architecture that surrounds or lives. The director, Sé Merry Doyle, allows the buildings featured to speak for themselves, and takes us on an exploration with Simon in his search for Robin’s architecture of place. Sé Merry Doyle follows Simon as he tries to understand why Robin quit architecture at the the height of his fame and began to exclude his children from his world.

Serbian Cavalry

GOLGOTA SRBIJE / SERBIAN CAVALRY

MESTO/VENUE: Kinoteka, Kosovska 11
DATUM/DATE: 15.3.2018.
VREME/TIME: 20:30
KARTE/TICKETS: 350

Golgota Srbije je istorijski dokumentarni film o promenljivoj sudbini srpske nacije tokom Prvog svetskog rata (1914 -1918).

Ovaj film se smatra umetničkim delom i najboljim dokumentarnim filmom snimljenim u Kraljevini Jugoslaviji, i okarakterisan je kao kinematografsko delo od izuzetnog istorijskog i kulturnog značaja.

Kroz film nas vode citati istaknutih državnika, istoričara, i vojnih posmatrača tokom ratnih dešavanja na Balkanu. U nedostatku originalnog dokumentarnog materijala izgubljenog u toku rata, neke scene su naknadno rekonstruisane. U filmu takođe možemo čuti i irsku koračnicu iz Prvog svetskog rata „It’s a long way to Tipperary”.

Prva projekcija filma zakazana je 1940 godine, ali je u međuvremenu film zabranjen, jer su cenzori smatrali da bi mogao negativno da utiče na odnose sa stranim zemljama. U avgustu iste godine film je prikazan sa velikim uspehom, uz nekoliko izbačenih scena. Materijal je obnovljen sedamdesetih godina, ali je po drugi put prikazan tek 24. februara 1992. godine u Sava centru.

The Cavalry of Serbia or Balkans Burning is an epic historical documentary film about the mixed fortunes of the Serbian nation during the Great War, 1914 – 1918.

It is considered a work of art and the best documentary film made in the Kingdom of Yugoslavia, and has been authenticated as a cinematographic work of exceptional historical & cultural significance.

The film uses explanatory titles from quotations of eminent statesmen, historians, and military observers describing wartime events in the Balkans. Due to a lack of original documentary material (lost during the war) some scenes were reconstructed later. There is also a rousing rendition of the Irish WWI morale boosting & marching song, “It’s a long way to Tipperary”.

The documentary was first scheduled for a premiere in 1940, but was banned because censors conidered it potentially damaging with foreign countries. In August of that year, The Calvary of Serbia—originally titled Balkans Burning, was screened with great success, though with some scenes removed. In the 1970s the material was restored, but it wasn’t until February 24th 1992 that a second screening took place in the Sava Center.


Medicated Milk

LEKOVI U MLEKU / MEDICATED MILK

MESTO/VENUE: Kinoteka, Kosovska 11
DATUM/DATE: 15.3.2018.
VREME/TIME: 17:00
KARTE/TICKETS: 350

‘Medicated Milk’ je uzbudljiv film zasnovan na malo poznatim činjenicama o životu Lucije Džojs (Lucia Joyce), kćerke proslavljenog irskog pisca Džejmsa Džojsa (James Joyce). Režiserka Onja Stejplton (Áine Stapleton) u centar zbivanja stavlja misterioznu Luciju, koja je zbog mentalne bolesti provela pet godina zaključana i isključena iz svakodnevnog života.

Frustrirana uobičajenim prikazom Lucije kao lude kćerke jednog genija, Stejplton je prikupila njene preostale radove i ponovo proučila njenu priču. Zasnivajući se na Lucijinim rečima i dnevnicima, autorka je, uz pomoć Hose Migel Himenesa (Jose Miguel Jimenez) ponudila nov i svež pristup životu Lucije Džojs.

Uz moćnu muziku Somadrona, umetnici su spojili izuzetne plesne sekvence sa neverovatnom podvodnom kinematografijom kako bi izrazili gubitak, traumu i marginalizaciju koju je preživela Lucija Džojs.

Kroz ovaj film Stejplton je dala glas i život ženi kako bi doprinela tome da se ne bi ponavljale greške prošlosti kao i da način na koji je tretirana u prošlosti više niko ne iskusi u budućnosti.

Onja Stejplton će lično predstaviti film i odgovarati na pitanja posle projekcije.

‘Medicated Milk’ is a captivating movie based on the little known life of Lucia Joyce, daughter of the celebrated Irish writer James Joyce. Director Áine Stapleton highlights the mysterious Lucia who was locked away from the public eye for half a decade due to mental illness.

Frustrated by the portrayal of Lucia as the mad daughter of a genius, Stapleton has gathered what remains of Lucia’s writings and re-examined her story. Working from Lucia’s own words and diaries, Stapleton presents a new and fresh approach to Lucia Joyce’s life with the aid of Jose Miguel Jimenez.

Alongside a powerful score from Somadrone, the artists have fused stunning dance sequences with breathtaking underwater cinematography along with highlighting the loss, trauma, and marginalization suffered by Lucia Joyce.

‘Medicated Milk’ sees Stapleton giving voice and life to a woman in order to ensure that mistakes and the treatment of a woman from the past aren’t committed and felt again by those of the future.

Áine Stapleton will present Medicated
Milk in person this year at BIF, and take questions after the screening.

Moskva nikada ne spava je multi-narativna drama o nevidljivim vezama koje nas sve povezuju i kinetičkim energijama ruske prestonice u provokativnom prikazu Putinove Rusije. Film nas vodi kroz gradski pejzaž i otkriva neukroćene energije najvećeg grada Evrope, grubost i lepotu ruskog duha.

Priča se kreće kroz nepredvidive raskrsnice savremene Moskve i intimne živote pet ljudi: preduzetnika čiji posao počinje da ugrožava moćna birokratija, tinejdžerke utopljene u nesreću rasturenog doma, mladića prinuđenog da bira između svoje devojke i bake, lepe pevačice koju progone dva muškarca, i filmske zvezde umešane u bizarnu otmicu. Tokom jednog dana životi ovih ljudi će se potpuno promeniti.

Džoni Orajli (Johnny O’ Reilly) će lično predstaviti film na BIF-u i odgovarati na pitanja posle projekcije.

Moscow Never Sleeps is a multi-narrative drama about the unseen bonds that connect us all and captures the kinetic energy of the Russian capital in a provocative statement on Putin’s Russia. The film blasts through Moscow’s choked cityscape to reveal the unrestrained energy of Europe’s biggest city and the cruelty and beauty of the Russian spirit.

The film dives headlong into the volatile intersections of contemporary Moscow and the intimate lives of five people: An entrepreneur whose business empire comes under siege by powerful bureaucrats, a teenage girl, mired in the misery of a broken home, a young man forced to choose between his girlfriend and his grandmother; a beautiful singer torn apart by the pursuit of two men and an ailing film star who gets embroiled in a bizarre kidnapping. Over the course of one day the lives of these individuals will change forever.’

Johnny O’ Reilly will present Moscow Never Sleeps in person at BIF, and take questions after the screening.

“True North” je redak i nezaboravan pogled na život kanadskih starosedelaca iz perspektive jedne irske porodice tokom sedamdesetih i osamdesetih godina prošlog veka.

Pod Malroni (Paud Mulrooney), učitelj iz Limerika, došao je sa porodicom da živi sa plemenima Odžibve i Kri, tokom osetljivog perioda promene obrazovnog modela i prelaska sa sistema internata za decu starosedelaca, na mnogo humaniji sistem lokalnih škola. Učestvovao je u osmišljavanju novog nastavnog programa prilagođenog starosedelačkim tradicijama i načinu života

Malronijev film snimljen “super osmicom” i fotografije koje je sam izrađivao prikazuju život na jezeru Cat i rezervatu Ogoki Post.

Njegova kćerka Deirdre Malroni će lično predstaviti film na BIF- u i odgovarati na pitanja posle projekcije.

“True North” is a rare and unforgettable glimpse into the life of First Nations Canadians through the eyes of an Irish family throughout the 70s & 80s.

Paud Mulrooney, a school teacher from Limerick, Ireland, brought his wife and family to live with the Ojibway and Cree people. He was there at a critical period of transition from the Residential school system to a more enlightened native community-run school, developing a new curriculum suited to indigenous traditions.

Paud Mulrooney’s never-seen Super-8 films and self-developed photographs capture life on Cat Lake and Ogoki Post Reserves. His daughter Deirdre Mulrooney’s documentary gives us an insight into what drew Paud Mulrooney there through ethereal Super-8 reels and slow photography.

Deirdre Mulrooney will present True North in person at BIF, and take questions after the screening.

GRACE JONES

MESTO/VENUE: Kinoteka, Kosovska 11
DATUM/DATE: 13. i 17.3.2018.
VREME/TIME: 20:30
KARTE/TICKETS: 350

Veća od života, divlja, zastrašujuća i androgina – Grejs Džouns (Grace Jones) igra sve ove uloge. Ipak, ovde je otkrivamo kao ljubavnicu, ćerku, majku, pa čak i baku, dok se razotkriva pred našim pogledom i dozvoljava nam da razumemo šta sačinjava njenu masku. Scena je mesto gde se otelotvoruju njeni najekstremniji aspekti i gde se oslobađa njena dramska imaginacija.

U filmu možemo videti jedinstvena izvođenja kultnih hitova kao što su „Slave To The Rhythm” ili „Pull Up To The Bumper”, kao i novije autobiografske numere „Williams’ Blood” i „Hurricane”. Ove lične pesme povezuju nas sa porodičnim životom Grejs Džouns, dok pratimo putovanje kroz Jamajku, otkrivajući njene korene i priču o njenom traumatičnom detinjstvu. Njeni nastupi se tematski provlače kroz film, a „Love is the Drug“ izvedena u stilu arije nas dovodi do završnih i najdirljivijih scena. Ovo je Grejs koju ne poznajemo, neko ko nas podseća šta zaista znači biti živ.

Larger than life, wild, scary and androgynous – Grace Jones plays all these parts. Yet here we also discover her as a lover, daughter, mother, sister and even grandmother, as she submits herself to our gaze and allows us to understand what constitutes her mask. The stage is where her most extreme embodiments are realised and her theatrical imagination lets loose. The film includes Grace’s unique performances singing iconic hits such as ‘Slave To The Rhythm’, ‘Pull Up To The Bumper’, as well as the more recent autobiographical tracks ‘Williams’ Bloods and Hurricane’. These personal songs also link to Grace’s family life, as the film takes us on a holiday road trip across Jamaica, where her family roots and the story of her traumatic childhood are uncovered. In Jamaican patois, ‘Bloodlight’ is the red light that illuminates when an artist is recording and ‘Bami’ means bread, the substance of daily life. The performance continues to move thematically though the film, with Love Is The Drug acting like an aria, bringing the film to its final and most touching scenes. This is a Grace we have not seen before, someone who reminds us of what it is to dare to be truly alive.

SONG OF GRANITE / PESMA GRANITA

MESTO/VENUE: Kinoteka, Kosovska 11
DATUM/DATE: 13. i 18.3.2018.
VREME/TIME: 17:00
KARTE/TICKETS: 350

Song of granite prati životnu priču velikog pevača tradicionalne irske pesme Džoa Hinija (Joe Heaney). Surovi pejzaži u kombinaciji sa mitovima, pričama i pesmama kraja iz koga je potekao, oblikovali su njegovu kompleksnu ličnost.

Hini je bio jedan od najvećih pevača tradicionalnog irskog stila poznatog kao šanos (na irskom: sean-nós). Priznati režiser Pat Kolins (Pat Collins) oživljava dramatičnu životnu priču ove enigmatične i složene ličnosti. Kolins je odabrao pristup koji ukršta tradicionalnu naraciju i dokumentarne snimke koji slave muziku Džoa Hinija, dok istovremeno oslikava portret Hinija, čoveka.

“Ovo je veličanstven film koji morate pogledati !” BIF

Song of Granite revolves around the life of the great traditional Irish singer, Joe Heaney. The harsh landscape combined with the myths, fables and songs of his Connemara childhood helped shape this complex and fascinating character.

Joe Heaney was one the greats of traditional Irish style of singing known as seannós. Acclaimed filmmaker, Pat Collins, brings the dramatic life story of the enigmatic and complex singer to life in Song of Granite. Collins comes with an approach that marries traditional narrative episodes with documentary footage that celebrates the music Joe Heaney created while painting an unflinching portrait of Heaney, the man.

“This is a magnificent and beautiful film and a must see !” BIF
