Literature

ZOMBIE

Director: Thomas Caruso.
A mild-mannered mannered serial killer commits his final crime. From the award-winning novella by famous American author Joyce Carol Oates, and the acclaimed Off-Broadway play. Featuring the award-winning performance of Bill Connington as "Quentin P."

Jocasta

Director: Elise Kermani.
In Sophocles' play "Oedipus Rex" Jocasta hangs herself shortly after finding out that Oedipus is both her husband and son. In Euripides' play "The Phoenician Women", Jocasta stays alive a little bit longer to try and reconcile her sons but stabs herself shortly after they kill each other during the war at Thebes. But in Kermani's film "Jocasta", Jocasta stays alive after her sons' mutual murders to perform a sacrifice to save Thebes, and to satiate Ares' ancient fury of Kadmos' slaying of the dragon. Jocasta chooses the creative act of writing over suicide. Her ritual act remembers that Body is Presence (Plato's 'ousia' and Heidegger's 'Ereignis') and Jocasta reminds us that she (also known as Iocasta) is related to Io, the Great Cow goddess of Egypt. The origins of writing are sacred manifestations of ousia/hestia...esti/Being. She reverses the taboo of incest, and reestablishes the symbollic image of mother and son. Jocasta's sacrifice was inspired by an ancient Persian ritual of ingesting the Word to cure illness. www.elisekermani.com/jocasta.html www.elisekermani.com/thejocastaproject.html

Story Telling: An Art beyond time.

user
“You and I shall pass on but our stories shall linger.”   From yesterday, today and tomorrow, stories come from all time and all ages, keeping us unwearied, unbridled, unburdened in its magical realm. A realm of make believe where no matter how desperate things seem there is always something to learn. Learning that changes the way we see our world, the way we act or think, the way we are supposed to live and evolve to what is truthfully our true essence. ...

PARK IT RIGHT

Director: Donny Kingsley Okoh.
Five Traffic Wardens who are University Students and migrants are determined to prove to the public that there is more to them than their big bums and issuing parking tickets. Being a Migrant worker and student with an accent in the UK is a big problem for Chris and his colleagues and they embark on a mission to uplift the image of traffic wardens and are determined to go extra miles. Albeit the daily difficulties inherent in being a traffic warden, Chris, Emeka, Sanjay, Everton, Heather, Colin and Lucy utilize all their skills to show the public that their temporary career path do not define who they are and that whenever people see them, they should not get scared that they will be fined for not packing properly rather; they should be ready to be entertained by their wits and dancing capabilities. Their quest to help change the views of the public about traffic wardens and gain acceptability is dealt a heavy blow when Colin falls in love with a fellow student (Jade). In his “never say never” attitude, Colin decides to sing to her about his undying love in front of the whole class and in turn, makes himself and his colleagues a laughing stock.

JANE EYRE at SFF 2011

user
The latest JANE EYRE (2011), directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga screened in the open air theater in Sarajevo at SFF. And did my skin shiver with goosebumps (not only because of post rain cold outdoor air) when Jane (played by Mia Wasikowska) answered to all of Edward Rochester's (played by Michael Fassbender) very cloudy English stoicism with such chilling yet captivating self-assured humility. I fell in love with Jane myself! read summary of film and more here: http://www.sff.ba/film/show/id/1565Fu...
