‘Fifi,’ ‘Bug,’ ‘Manakamana’ Win at Buenos Aires’ Bafici

13 April 2014 11:05 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Madrid – Mitra Farahani’s portrait of Iranian artist Bahamn Mohasses, “Fifi Howls With Happiness” topped the International Competition at the 16th Buenos Aires International Independent Film Festival (Bafici), which wrapped Sunday.

Distinguished with a wealth of local movies, however small, including a clutch of new titles, some popular though they didn’t end up in with a prize, and an international competition packed with gems, beginning with its best picture winner, the 16th Bafici looks set to go down a strong edition.

“Fifi” delivers a bracing portrait of Iranian artist Bahman Mohasses, and the vastly contrarian and contradictory nature of creative genius at large, presenting at once a caustic, dogmatic, seeringly mordant interviewee who has destroyed many of his paintings and shunned the limelight, but is still concerned about how the world views him and is finally persuaded to paint again.

Match Factory unveils Gomes' Arabian Nights

9 February 2014 1:06 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: German sales team launches experimental Miguel Gomes drama at Efm.

German outfit The Match Factory has begun talking to buyers at the Efm about Tabu director Miguel Gomes’ latest project Arabian Nights (As 1001 Noites).

Gomes’ film transposes contemporary Portugal - beset by economic crisis - into the structure of the famous collection of folk tales One Thousand and One Nights, also known as Arabian Nights.

Stories within the film will be based on real stories taken from news and press in Portugal during the production period.

The one-year shoot started in early December 2013 and will continue throughout 2014.

The cast includes Adriano Luz, Carloto Cotta, Rogério Samora, Diogo Dória and Crista Alfaiate.

Co-writers include Tabu writer Mariana Ricardo and Tabu editor Telmo Churro. Uncle Boonmee cinematographer Sayombhu Mukdeeprom is also on board.

The production has also created an online blog (www.as1001noites.com/en) for the film featuring contributions from Portuguese journalists and illustrators.

Notebook's 6th Writers Poll: Fantasy Double Features of 2013

13 January 2014 11:53 AM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Looking back over the year at what films moved and impressed us, it is clear that watching old films is a crucial part of making new films meaningful. Thus, the annual tradition of our end of year poll, which calls upon our writers to pick both a new and an old film: they were challenged to choose a new film they saw in 2013—in theaters or at a festival—and creatively pair it with an old film they also saw in 2013 to create a unique double feature.

All the contributors were given the option to write some text explaining their 2013 fantasy double feature. What's more, each writer was given the option to list more pairings, with or without explanation, as further imaginative film programming we'd be lucky to catch in that perfect world we know doesn't exist but can keep dreaming of every time we go to the movies.
