LIDF - The London International Documentary Festival

Murgia Karst Phenomenon

Since 2007 the LIDF has worked to ensure that London is host to exciting, diverse, challenging and inspiring films from every corner of the world. The LIDF is committed to providing a platform for international documentaries and their directors. It does this by working with globally recognised partners and venues, such as the British Museum, the Barbican Centre, and the Royal Society of the Arts on a year-round programme of screenings and other events that includes the 10-day London International Documentary Festival.

The LIDF’s ongoing commitment to what it calls ‘Conversations in Film’ creates a unique kind of film festival. The films within LIDF are the starting point for a series of programmed ‘conversations’ – panel discussions and workshops – that bring diverse audiences together to go beyond the films themselves in order to engage with social, cultural and political issues in the company of policy makers, academics, journalists and other cultural commentators

Having celebrated its third year the LIDF is now looking forward to working with new partners and presenting another feast of film and debate in April / May 2010.

CHAMELEON

Director: Krisztina GODA.

 

Gábor is an office cleaner. Wearing overalls and a baseball hat, he seems insignificant. Working on the night shift, Gábor rarely has any contact with his employers, yet he learns everything about them by thoroughly analyzing their garbage. Since he is almost invisible, nobody suspects that Gábor is, in fact, a con man who carefully chooses his victims by the trash they leave behind. His targets are mostly disillusioned, lonely women. In a few months he destroys all their romantic illusions by taking all their savings. Having an unusually high IQ and an ability to assume various personalities, Gábor is an expert in manipulation. When he gets a job at a psychologist's office, Gábor meets Hanna, an injured dancer who happens to be the daughter of a millionaire. Insecure and vulnerable, Hanna seems to be the perfect victim. Gábor pretends to be a doctor who can cure her body and her soul, an irresistible offer for a desperate woman. Everything goes according to plan until Gábor falls in love with Hanna and has to make a hard decision between her and the money.

Papal Brokendance

#
Director: Marie Losier.
Music video Papal Breakdance by PTV3-Genesis P-Orridge With Genesis Breyer P-Orridge and many friends. A campy music video in the style of a scopitone from the early 1960s, with the wonderful cast of 10 boys in sexy red singlets and girls in red tutus, all dancing with joy with Genesis P-Orridge in a boxing ring…all the ingredients for a slap stick boxing match in music.

Tony Conrad, DreaMinimalist

#
Director: Marie Losier.
The latest in Marie Losier’s ongoing series of film portraits of avant-garde directors (George and Mike Kuchar, Guy Maddin, Richard Foreman), DreaMinimalist offers an insightful and hilarious encounter with Conrad as he sings, dances and remembers his youth and his association with Jack Smith.

This Time We Can't Say We Didn't Know

user
Director: Slaven Zimbrek.
This Time We Can’t Say We Didn’t Know combines the archived footage and still images of the Holocaust, Rwanda and Darfur genocide with testimonies of the Holocaust survivors to establish a parallel between the ongoing crisis in Darfur and the Holocaust. However, as the film’s title points out, ignorance cannot be used as an excuse for not helping out because “this time we can’t say we didn’t know”.

Blank

Director: Cristina Ertze.
Four people awake in a derelict house with no memory of who they are or why they are there. All they know is that tonight, when they fall asleep they will forget everything again, so they have only a few hours to find out something – anything – about what or who is doing this to them. As they journey through a desolate, abandoned landscape they come to realise that this may all have happened before. And that they may be their own enemies. Blank is a existential, psychological thriller which explores the cycle of violence and retribution which comes from the failure to remember the lessons of the past. The film is inspired by Milan Kundera’s quote “the struggle of freedom against power is the struggle of memory against forgetting”. A post-apocalyptic thriller about suspicion, mistrust and fear which leads to a shocking conclusion, the film is a political parable of the dangers of forgetting lessons and repeating mistakes.

True Beauty This Night

Director: Peter Besson.
Last night, Rhett Somers met the love of his life. Now all he has to do is convince her that she's the one. Not an easy feat considering how they met.

Teenagers

Director: Paul Verhoeven (France).
Beside not very commendable teenagers, there exist some others, but who are never showed… Now, these young people, like Lucas, Alexis, etc, can have a beneficial influence on the youths adrift, and even make them better. But sometimes it is necessary to agree to pay the full price, like the corn grain which must die to bear fruit… It is what this film shows, film at the same time dramatic and full with hope, inspired from real facts.

Jelena's World

Director: Tanja Brzakovic.
Feature documentary movie. Exclusive journey through and into the world of professional tennis, with number 1 woman- player of the world Jelena Jankoviæ.

March 2003 Danish whistleblower, former Military Intelligence Officer Frank Grevil, faces imprisonment, public shame and the destruction of his family after exposing his government’s doubts on the Iraqi weapons programme.
