JAHA’S PROMISE

by Patrick Farrelly, Kate O’Callaghan
Usa/Uk/Gambia 2017, 81’
English/Mandinko o.v., subtitled in Italian

Introducted by AIDOS (Associazione italiana donne per lo sviluppo)

A strong story about an even stronger woman, who confronts a global taboo: female genital mutilation and forced marriage.
Like most other girls in Gambia, Jaha Dukureh was circumcised when she was very young. Her marriage was arranged when she was eight, and as a 15-year-old she got married to a 40-year-old man in New York. ‘Jaha’s Promise’ is a touching story about a young girl’s struggle to take control of her own body, and about having the courage to confront her father, the politicians and the community that surrounds her. An extremely important political document in a world where over 200 million women live with the devastating consequences of female genital mutilation, which is still being practised in 30 countries. The story of Jaha is thus the story about the suffering of countless other women – and about one woman’s courage to confront a global taboo, which like few other topics divides people’s opinions. A strong film about an even stronger woman, and an experience that lingers on long after you have left the cinema.

AN INSIGNIFICANT MAN

by Khushboo RankaVinay Shukla
India 2016, 90’
English/Hindi o.v., Italian subs

 

A political documentary that traces the birth and journey of a new and dynamic party, An Insignificant Man is 400 hours of footage that was edited to weave a 90-minute narrative in the form of a feature film. If you have not followed the political developments that led to the emergence of the Aam Admi Party, An Insignificant Man will be an educating journey. From the early days of the anti-corruption movement, started by Anna Hazare and spearhead by Arvind Kejriwal, to the formation of the AAP and its eventual victory in the Delhi Assembly elections, the documentary shows it all.
The beauty of the documentary lies in the cohesive narrative that the filmmakers have come up with and there are no voice-overs or interviews to disrupt the flow of the story. The footage has been woven together to form a proper story and it helps in making the film gripping..

Once a pop star celebrity, winner of the biggest local reality show, Big Brother Brazil, now he puts his fame at risk by confronting the religious majority, and becomes an activist under life threats, target of online hate, the Brazilian Harvey Milk living in one of the deadliest countries for homosexuals, while the rest of the world sees an increase in legislative tolerance.

FLY AWAY HOME

by Mirjam Unger (Austria, 2016 – 100 min. Screening in german o.v., Italian subtitles)

>Online Reservation

Vienna 1945. The powder keg of war and the Russian occupation as seen through the innocent eyes of nine-year-old Christine. She knows as little about peace as children today know about war. Bombed out and penniless, she and her family are put up in a fancy villa on the outskirts of Vienna. They now have a roof over their heads, nothing more. After the German soldiers capitulate, the Russians take over the house. Everybody is scared of the Russians, who are believed to be a capricious lot. Everybody, except Christine.

Mirjam Unger
Born  1970  in  Vienna, she is director and writer. She studied film directing at the  University  of  Music  and Performing Arts, Film-Academy Vienna.  She received  numerous  awards  for  her short films  at  international  festivals (Nachricht  von  H.,  Speak  Easy,  More or  Less…). Since 2000 she works as an independent director and writer for  cinema and  TV.

Director’s statement
“When we began to adapt Christine Nöstlingers autobiography FLY AWAY HOME to a film script we had no idea that an actual war in Syria would soon be so close and omnipresent. Nöstlinger was 9 years old when World War II ended and the movie shows her experience as a warchild more than 70 years ago in Vienna during these last weeks of war and the beginning of a new peace. We wanted to focus on this very universal topic, children in war. The most memorable sentence from the many hours of conversation with the author was: “The weeks in summer of 1945 when everything lay in ashes were the most exciting and maybe even the best weeks of my childhood.“ The ambivalence of war and a child’s perception of what for adults was a catastrophy and the question what children see as adventure are important elements of this film. Apart from the historical background of Fly Away Home, Christine Nöstlinger has of course been one of the most important authors of children’s books in Austria for decades and she is a guiding figure for so many of us and also for me. As a woman with political attitude and as an artist she is a role model, someone who empowers. It is by no way a coincidence that in this film version of her childhood nearly all main departments of this period picture were staffed by women”.

ALIVE & KICKING (Tutti pazzi per lo Swing)

by Susan Glatzer (Svezia/USA, 2017 – 88 min., o.v. English with Italian sub.)

SXSW Film Festival Grand Jury Award

>Prenotazione online

Alive and Kicking gives the audience an intimate, insider’s view into the culture of the current swing dance world while shedding light on issues facing modern society. 
The film follows a select group of swing dancers who actively participate in competition around the world. This documentary provides a snap shot of what it’s like to be a competitive dancer and why the dance brings joy to so many people around the world. There are great moments in the film that let the viewer experience laughter, joy, and even sadness and empathy for the difficulties some of the dancers have been through. Overall, though, the experience as a whole is energetic and will make even a non-dancer understand why so many people love swing dancing.

“I will stop dancing when my feet won’t move anymore!”, Frankie Manning, Legend of Swing.

THE FIRST SHOT

by Yan Cheng e Federico Francioni (Italia 2017, 73′. V.O. cinese con sottotitoli in italiano)

53°Mostra Internazionale del Nuovo Cinema di Pesaro, Concorso Internazionale – Miglior Film

Q&A with director Yan Cheng

Tre esistenze distanti e differenti colte nella stessa tensione: la ricerca della propria identità e del senso dello stare in un presente di continua trasformazione. Ognuno di loro nato dopo il 1989, la fine di tutte le rivoluzioni.
Haitao vive nel Black Bridge Village, una periferia di Pechino dove i migranti si mescolano agli studenti, e lotta contro la censura e contro il proprio vuoto interiore, restando connesso col mondo attraverso il sottile filo della rete.
Yixing osserva la città in continuo cambiamento, oltre un vetro dal suo appartamento al trentesimo piano, dove proietta i frammenti della propria realtà.
Yiyi vive lontana dal suo paese natale, a Londra, in una metropoli globale dove forse costruirà il suo futuro. Tornando nel piccolo villaggio dei suoi nonni, al centro della Cina, trova un luogo dove a cui non appartiene più.
Alle loro spalle si intravede una storia contraddittoria, di sofferenze e continue trasformazioni, dalla caduta dell’Impero all’era moderna, che ha inizio col primo sparo rivoluzionario, il 10 ottobre 1911.
