3 doc mentaries on film at Sheffield

SHEFFIELD DOC/FEST 3-7 November 2010
www.sheffdocfest.com


Among the 130 film line-up at this year’s Sheffield Doc/Fest - which includes 15 World Premieres, 26 UK Premieres, 5 European Premieres and 1 International Premiere - are 3 feature docs which look at the art of cinema.

Belair (UK Prem) (Brazil 2009 Dirs Noa Bressane and Bruno Safadi 80min)
THURS 04 NOV / 14:15
Noa Bressane and Bruno Safadi’s Belair is about an extraordinary chapter in Brazil’s cinematic history. At a film festival in 1969, directors Julio Bressane and Rogerio Sganzerla met and fell in love with each other’s work. They went on to form a production company together, giving it the kitsch title of Belair, after the suburb in Los Angeles. In the first half of 1970, during a repressive military dictatorship which heavily censored art, Bressane and Sganzerla made half a dozen feature length experimental films with Sganzerlas wife, the avant garde actress Helena Ignez. Audacious in both style and content, the Belair films were too much for the times, and were unreleased, instead becoming the stuff of legend. Julios daughter Noa and Bruno Safadi delve into Belairs archives, hearing from Bressane and a host of others about this remarkably intense period of creative output. A treat for all cinephiles.

...but Film is My Mistress (UK Prem) (Sweden 2010, Stig Björkman, 66mins)
WED 03 NOV / 18:30
Ingmar Bergman remains one of cinemas most celebrated directors, famous for his style, and the intelligence of his piercing films. This wonderfully rich documentary takes us behind the scenes of eight Bergman films, and directly into his film-making process. “We were all playmates”, recalls Bergmans muse actress Liv Ullman, who looks back with fondness of the great adventure on the many films they made together. Indeed what is surprising given the bleakness of the Bergman oeuvre is the bonhomie clearly evident on his sets. “I feel its part of a directors duties to be in a good working mood. And to generate a feeling of enjoyment surrounding the work itself”, says Bergman, whose voice is heard throughout, as are those of a number of great directors who he has influenced, including Martin Scorsese, Woody Allen and Lars Von Trier. A total joy for any Bergman fan, this doc also serves as a memorable introduction to those less familiar with the legend.

The Miscreants of Taliwood (Australia 2009, Georges Gittoes, 90mins)
THUR 04 NOV / 20.15
Australian George Gittoes has carved an unlikely career travelling to war zones in search of art and culture. Now he has arrived at one of the most dangerous of all: Pakistan’s Northwest Frontier. In the ancient capital Peshawar, the films that the Taliban most want to destroy are being made. Cheesy and overblown even by Bollywood standards, their themes reflect the violent conflicts at the heart of Pakistani society. Gittoes launches himself into ‘Taliwood’ by self-funding two dramas, which take him and his frightened crew into the mountains where Bin Laden lurks. Peppered with comical and surreal scenes this is nonetheless a deadly serious film. With Gittoes as guide we are immersed in an industry in which everyone exists under fear of death, from the women modestly appearing on screen to the men running the DVD stalls. At times difficult to watch, this is an utterly astonishing foray into Pakistan’s heart of darkness.
