THE ORPHEUS NEWSLETTER

THE PATTERN OF BELIEF

The first week of Jun I transformed myself into a movie buff. I saw eight films at Transilvania International annual Film festival in Cluj. Pa-ra-da, Marco Pontecorvo’s moving feature film about homeless children in post-Ceausescu Romania. This according to New York time was Europe’s answer to the Indian rags-to-riches blockbuster “Slumdog Millionaire.” Then it was Dominique Blanc, French award winning actress in L’autre. She played the role of a jealous obsessive woman after opting out of a relationship. Award winning Filmephobia, Kiko Goifman (Brazil) made a documentary about fear in contemporary society. The crew of this film-within-a-film documentary explores the limits of the psyche by exposing phobics to their greatest irrational fears. ‘Valentino the last emperor’ is a feature-length film on the legendary designer Valentino Garavani in the wake of his exit in 2008 from the company he founded in Rome more than 45 years ago. The film won the Chicago film festival. ‘Hollywood I am sleeping over tonight’, directed by Antoine de Maximy, a French comedian is a film about the director’s journey from East coast to West coast. The travelling cameraman takes to the road, on foot, hitchhiking, by taxi, by bus, by bicycle and even in a hearse. The film paints a picture of the United States that is both touching and surprising. Then was ‘Man on Wire’ an Academy Award-winning 2008 documentary film directed by James Marsh. The film chronicles Philippe Petit’s 1974 high-wire walk between the Twin Towers of New York’s World Trade Center. It is based on Philippe Petit’s book, ‘To Reach the Clouds’. The last film was ‘Gabhricha Paus’, The Damned rain, by Prashant Pethe. This was the lone Indian film to figure in the list of 31 projects selected for the prestigious funding from the Rotterdam International Film Festival.
