Seville Film Festival Awards

 

The Jury of the OFFICIAL SECTION of Seville European Film Festival 2018, composed by Nerea Barros, Russ B. Collins, Marion Döring, Inés Nofuentes and Jonás Trueba have decided to award the following films: 

The latest, and very controversial, Golden Bear at the Berlin Festival comes to the #15FestivalSevilla: 'Touch Me Not' uses radicalness to talk about sex as therapy for overcoming trauma. A first film for Adina Pintilie, it dynamites all expectations with an innovative approach to talking without any restrictions, and with a certain desire to provoke, about bodies and intimacy. The Romanian filmmaker will participate in a talk after the screening which promises to be juicy.

'Touch Me Not' is part of the festival’s Official Section, as is 'La Ciudad Oculta', the new film by Víctor Moreno after that surprising metaphor of the financial crisis offered in 'Edificio España' (2014). The filmmaker offers a sensorial and visually striking journey to the subsoil of a large city: the sewers and tunnels, as an unknown part, and a symbolic space, of our habitat. The film will have its world premiere at the Seville Festival, as will 'Letters to Paul Morrissey': the first feature film by Armand Rovira, the result of, in his own words, "an experimental, underground amusement”, that gradually grew until it became an episodic, epistolary film in which various characters maintain a correspondence with the man who was a member of Andy Warhol’s troupe and director of films such as 'Trash' or 'Flesh'. Moreno and Rovira will talk with the audience in the Nervión cinemas after the screening of their respective films.

A very animated festival

Always open to the impact of all kinds of formats, this year the #15FestivalSevilla will pay unusual and special attention to the various trends in animation produced in Europe, with a handful of very striking titles. Two of them will shine in The New Waves section and can be seen from today: both also share a subject matter, the Palestinian conflict, and maintain a particular, and unexpected, dialogue: the Italian-French 'Samouni Road', by Stefano Savona, mingles real images with the scratchboard technique in a striking proposal that takes us to the Gaza Strip to offer a portrait of a family marked by tragedy. The filmmaker will take part in a subsequent debate with the audience. 'The Tower', by the Norwegian Mats Grorud, also offers a family group, in this case confined for several generations to a Palestinian refugee camp in the Lebanon. Animation at the service of a humanist and emotionally intense story.

 

road

 

Two films from The New Waves will also dialogue, through the figure of Vladimir Putin and the reality in Russia: 'Victory Day', by Sergei Loznitsa, photographs the parade which every 9th May is held in the Treptower Park in Berlin, in front of the Soviet monument in honour of the fallen in the Second World War. Loznitsa turns the spotlight on some of those attending, wondering if those followers of Stalin or Putin are paying tribute to the dead or if they are dreaming of the return of a glorious past. And in 'Putin's Witnesses', the director Vitaly Mansky recovers, and reinterprets, the many images he filmed in 2000, during the electoral campaign of the now president of Russia, and he’ll share them in person with the audience after the screening.

This Sunday, Endless Revolutions is showing a film that is very coherent film with the section, because it talks precisely about revolutions: the ones lived internally by a young monk when reality, the French Revolution and its derivatives, appears in the monastery where he lives. It happens in 'A Violent Desire for Joy', by a Clément Scheider who will probably explain, in the subsequent talk, how he is inspired by the cinema of Eric Rohmer or Eugène Green.

 

And for the general public...

The Special Screening section today includes a simple biopic, an atmospheric thriller and a family melodrama: 'The Happy Prince', first work as a director by the popular actor Rupert Everett ('My Best Friend’s Wedding'), looks at the final years of the legendary writer Oscar Wilde, fallen into disgrace after making his homosexuality public. Everett plays the writer, leading a cast that includes Colin Firth, Emily Watson and Tom Wilkinson.

The other two are Spanish: 'El desentierro', by Nacho Ruipérez, uses the rice fields of Valencia as an atmospheric setting for a thriller which features Leonardo Sbaraglia. And 'Alegría, tristeza', by Ibon Cormenzana, puts Roberto Álamo in the role of a fireman who suffers from a serious emotional block and finds in his daughter his main ally in learning to feel again. Manuela Vellés and Maggie Civantos accompany the actor in the film.

More Spanish cinema in Andalusian Panorama, and all of them followed by a talk: 'El secadero', by Antonio Donaire, is a harsh drama in an almost post-apocalyptic setting, which adapts a novel by Pedro Andreu which the author situated as between 'Mad Max', 'Tierra, by Julio Medem, and the work of Camilo José Cela. There is another tone in 'Segunda oportunidad', in which Gary Piquer plays a man who returns to his home town  to reinvent himself, opening a business selling marihuana for therapeutic purposes. Rosa Maria Sardá is also in this film directed by Álvaro de Armiñán. We also have 'Al sur del sur', by Manuel Blanco, a visual map of the bay of Cadiz, and it is accompanied by the short film 'Plástico planchado', by A.J. Luque.

 

Retrospectives

We continue to look at the filmmakers receiving tributes in this #15FestivalSevilla. With ‘A Swedish Love Story’, Roy Andersson had an enormous success which, in some way, marked his career: it deals with the beauty of the first love of two adolescents. With 'On Body and Soul', the Hungarian Ildikó Enyedi returned to cinema after more than a decade away from the cameras: the reward for her persistence was the Golden Bear at the 2017 Berlinale.

And the retrospective of the German Ula Stöckl offers one of the loveliest events at this edition of the festival: it will take place in the Bar Metáforas (c/ Mata, 20), where 'Tales of the Dumpster Kid' will be shown. This is a series of short films, like episodes, the screening of which was a performance in itself in the old days in Hamburgs bars: people would choose the episodes from a “menu” as they went along, so that each time the resulting film was a different film, and each screening a party. That spirit will be recovered in the Seville screening.

 

tales

 

The Festival’s effort to put spectators and filmmakers in touch will offer a second chance to participate in talks with Mia Hansen-Løve ('Maya'), Sergei Loznitsa ('Donbass'), Samuel Alarcón ('Oscuro y lucientes') or Alberto San Juan (and the team from 'El Rey'). There will also be repeat screenings of films such as 'Non-Fiction', 'Ray & Liz', 'Morir para contar', 'Chaos', 'Beast', 'Something is Happening', 'I See Red People', 'Sobre tudo sobre nada', 'De chaque instant', 'Leto - Summer', 'Michael Inside' and 'Euphoria'.

The Cinema with the Family session today offers 'Marnie's World', by the brothers Christoph and Wolfgang Lauenstein, a revision of ‘The Musicians of Bremen’, ideal to share with the little ones. Finally, the formal risk will be seen in the Found Rituals section, which today will show in a double programme 'Lejos de los árboles' (1973), by Jacinto Esteva, and 'Rapa das bestas' (2017), by Jaione Gamborda.

And, beyond the cinema seats, music takes over and offers the performance by Boogarins + DJ Unicornio. At 00:30 in the Sala X.

 

 

GIRALDILLO DE ORO | GOLDEN GIRALDILLO

Película | Film: DONBASS

Dirigida por | directed by: Sergei Loznitsa

 

“La película logra un exquisito balance estético entre el tono documental y ficción.  Su excelente fotografía, dotada de realismo y creatividad, muestra una visión sumamente clara de la imparable tragedia de la guerra y sus consecuencias. El guionista/director Sergei Loznitsa relata, con gran acierto, el horror del conflicto armado conjugado en su vertiente más nacionalista, en una historia conmovedora, cotidiana y muy cercana a nivel humano”.

  

The film achieves an exquisite mix of fiction film form and documentary film feel. The excellent cinematography provides a creative and clear view of the relentless tragedy of the “fog of war.” Writer/director Sergei Loznitsa effectively balances the horrors of violent armed conflict, plus the animus of nationalist posturing, with an affecting and watchable story on a relatable human scale.

 

GRAN PREMIO DEL JURADO | GRAND JURY AWARD

Película | Film: RAY & LIZ

Dirigida por | directed by: Richard Billingham

 

“Esta obra supone una producción vanguardista sobre una historia autobiográfica. En los tiempos de la Gran Bretaña de Thatcher, este relato de una familia desestructurada presenta una visión veraz y cautivadora. Destila un innovador estilo visual, destreza creativa y meticulosidad. El talentoso trabajo del elenco conforma una convincente película sobre unos padres y sus hijos en el camino a un destino inevitable”.

 

 “An impressive production of an autobiographical story. Set in Thatcher-era Great Britain, this tale of a dysfunctional family is presented with a truthful eye, in an engaging way. It uses an innovative visual style, creatively crafted and finely observed. Strong performances by a talented cast creates a compelling film of clueless parents and their struggling children on a collision course with destiny.”

 

PREMIO A LA MEJOR DIRECCIÓN | BEST DIRECTOR AWARD

Película | Film: M

Dirigida por | directed by: Yolande Zauberman

 

“Este documental de estilo cinema verité es una crónica del abuso sexual infantil dentro de una comunidad judía ortodoxa en Israel. Con el foco en un personaje adulto en busca de la reconciliación interna, la directora logra acompañar con una cámara cercana y en movimiento constante a este personaje sensible y honesto en su búsqueda de respuestas. Una paleta cromática apagada, con la mayor parte de la película rodada por la noche, la directora logra llevar un dolor muy arraigado hacia un lugar cercano al de la esperanza y la sanación”.

 

“This cinema verité style documentary is a chronicle of childhood sexual abuse in a closed orthodox Jewish community in Israel. Focusing on an earnest, now adult victim seeking understanding and personal reconciliation, the director follows this compelling character with a moving camera that expresses the nervous energy of its subject. A desaturated color palette, with much of the film shot at night, brings the pain and the hope for healing to light and life on the screen.”

 

PREMIO AL MEJOR GUION | BEST SCREENPLAY AWARD

Película | Film:  RUBEN BRANDT, COLLECTOR

Guionista | Screenwriter:  Milorad Krstic & Radmila Roczkov

 

“Una aventura de animación ingeniosa, salvaje, muy fresca y divertida. Un guión jovial y rotundamente absurdo que juega con los genios museísticos internacionales al más puro estilo “James Bond”. Una animación bellísima, llena de elementos pictóricos originales que enriquecen la narración. El conjunto de la producción es una experiencia cinematográfica cargada de inteligencia y claramente irónica.”

 

“A witty, wild and fun animation adventure! The excellent screenplay is a creative, joyfully and assuredly absurd story, which toys with “James Bond” style international masterminds and deep state law enforcement heroes. The animation is beautifully executed, literate and playfully ironic. Set in the context of the world’s finest art museums and high-brow art exhibition it creates a decidedly fun and smart movie experience.”

 

PREMIO A LA MEJOR ACTRIZ | BEST ACTRESS AWARD

Película | Film:  JOY

Actriz | Actress:  Joy Anwulika Alphonsus

 

“A pesar de no ser una actriz profesional, Joy Anwutika Alphonsus transmite a través de su trabajo cautivador, honesto, inteligente y auténtico. Interpreta a una víctima de la trata de blancas en Austria, que intenta escapar de la pobreza y lucha contra la falta de dignidad de su entorno con el objetivo de conseguir una vida digna y libre. Es una interpretación maestra de una drama incontenible.”

 

“Although not a professional actress, Joy Anwutika Alphonsus carries the film through her captivating, open, honest, intelligent and authentic performance. She plays a human trafficked sex worker in Austria trying to escape from third-world poverty. She struggles through the indignity of circumstance with a focus on achieving a life of dignity and personal freedom – despite the odds.”

 

PREMIO AL MEJOR ACTOR| BEST ACTOR AWARD

Película | Film: VIVIR DEPRISA, AMAR DESPACIO / PLAIRE, AIMER ET COURIR VITE / SORRY ANGEL

Actor | Actor: Vincent Lacoste & Pierre Deladonchamps

 

“Esta tragicomedia sobre la homosexualidad cobra vida gracias a la habilidad y la química de Pierre Deladonchamps, como un enfermo de SIDA encantador y cautivador y Vincent Lacoste, un inquieto veintiañero el cual descubre su vida, el destino y el amor.  La dupla guía la narración en un juego sencillo, tierno, divertido y natural, que desemboca en una historia conmovedora”.

 

“This gay themed tragic comedy is brought alive by the skill and chemistry of Pierre Deladonchamps, as an AIDS infected, charming and appealing character and Vincent Lacoste, an energetic 20-something who is discovering his life, love and destiny. Playing off each other in an easy, fun and natural way they make their characters and the film poignant and compelling.”

 

PREMIO A LA MEJOR DIRECCIÓN DE FOTOGRAFÍA | BEST CINEMATOGRAPHY AWARD

Película | Film: LA CIUDAD OCULTA / HIDDEN CITY

Directora de Fotografía | Cinematographer: José A. Alayon & Víctor Moreno

 

“Con este premio, el jurado desea rendir tributo al enigmático concepto visual de esta película. Teniendo en cuenta la estrecha colaboración del Director de Fotografía y el Director, estos dos artistas nos embarcan en un viaje por los laberintos ocultos de una ciudad: un trabajo magistral gracias a su captura de imágenes, sus planos secuencia y a una banda sonora que la convierten en pura y deslumbrante poesía visual”.

 

“With this award the jury wishes to pay tribute to the intriguing visual concept of the film. Relying on the close collaboration of the Director of Photography and the Director, these two artists take us on a journey to the underbelly of a city which they masterfully accomplish through captured of images, seamless editing and a musical score that combines to become entrancing visual poetry.”

MEJOR PELÍCULA LAS NUEVAS OLAS_NO FICCIÓN | THE NEW WAVES_NON FICTION BEST FILM AWARD

Película | Film: EXTINÇÃO

Dirigida por | Directed by: Salomé Lamas 

 

“Por el modo en que Salomé Lamas aborda el tema de la identidad y la (no) pertenencia. La película parece decirnos que, sin un país, no existes. Sin una identidad, no tienes una opinión. Sin una opinión, eres invisible. Con el fin de abordar este material, la cineasta desarrolla una mirada estética radical que encaja a la perfección con la idea implícita del desarraigo, la confusión y la desorientación que siguen a la caída de un sistema.”

 

“Because of the way Salomé Lamas treats the subject of identity and (not) belonging. You don’t exist if you have no country. Without an identity, you have no opinion. Without an opinion, you are invisible. In order to tackle this issue, she develops a radical aesthetic approach that perfectly fits with the underlying idea of rootlessness, confusion and disorientation, following the end of a falling system.”
