A Million Colours Review

4 June 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

A Million Colours finds writer-director Peter Bishai peering into South Africa’s Apartheid yesteryear for his sophomore feature. One might say not just peering, but opening up a past wound to explore the microcosm of the personal within one of history’s great struggles for freedom.

Bishai transforms the past into a vessel for storytelling, opening with a prologue that relays to us that the story we are about to see unfold is the tale of Muntu Ndebele’s (Wandile Molebatsi’s) journey from actor to thief. The theme of storytelling is woven into the fabric of the film as Bishai tailors his drama to the belief that stories are intrinsically weaved into the fabric of the everyday. With this thought to mind perhaps its title refers not to a million shades but rather to the multitude of stories of which a country is threaded together with; a series of »

A Million Colours Review

15 May 2014 3:15 PM, PDT | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

Title: “A Million Colours” Director: Peter Bishai Starring: Wandile Molebatsi, Jason Hartman, Masello Motana, Stelio Savante, Mpho Osei Tutu, Running Time: 120 Minutes, No Rating “A Million Colours” positions itself as a story of friendship and love set in the middle of South Africa’s Apartheid struggles, but it’s a lot more than that. The story is, to me, one that focuses much more on the life of real life child star from 1975′s “e’Lollipop” Muntu Ndebele (Molebatsi) than it is about his deep friendship with his co-star Norman Knox (Hartman) and even Muntu’s love for the quiet Sabela (Motana). The film delves deep into Muntu’s life, including his descent from  [ Read More ]

The HeyUGuys Interview: Stelio Savante on Peter Greenaway’s Eisenstein, and his career

28 March 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

HeyUGuys recently caught up with Stelio Savante who following his lead role in the first film ever to shoot in Equatorial Guinea Where the Road Runs Out,  also has a supporting role in Peter Greenaway’s upcoming film Eisenstein in Guanajuato.

Between Greenaway and making history, we felt privileged to have an opportunity to discuss with Savante his career to date, which apparently all began thanks to some good looking girls. In an interview mixed with seriousness and humour he spoke of discovering cinema in his native South Africa, the difference between cinema in American and South African culture, working with J.J. Abrams, and the rewards of collaboration.

———–

Why a career in acting? Was there that one inspirational moment?

Getting paid to do something that I’m passionate about… how could I refuse that? Performing plays in university… I got the bug, it bite hard, and so a journey was born. »

Top 200 Most Anticipated Films for 2014: #28. Peter Greenaway’s Eisenstein In Guanajuato

5 March 2014 6:30 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Eisenstein in Guanajuato

Director: Peter Greenaway

Writer: Peter Greenaway

Producers: Submarine, Fu Works, Climax Films, Paloma Negra Films

U.S. Distributor: Rights Available

Cast: Elmer Back, Stelio Savante, Maya Zapata, Lisa Owen

While filming had looked to begin this past fall, it now seems like January, 2014 may be a start date for Greenaway’s latest. While he directed a segment in the triptych 3X3, which bowed at Cannes last year, his last feature was the excellent Goltzius and the Pelican Company, which bowed in the Rome Film Festival, 2012. Amidst a flurry of inspired projects, including a biopic on Bosch as a continuation in his painter series, and another project titled Food for Love, an homage to filmmaker Sergei Eisenstein is definitely his latest project, which will no doubt be a sumptuous visual experiment.

Gist: The film will address Eisenstein’s 10 day stay in Guanajuato in 1932, when he filmed material for the film Long Live Mexico! »

Seven New Photos from the Set of Peter Greenaway's 'Eisenstein in Guanajuato'

4 February 2014 10:50 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

The first photos from the set of Peter Greenaway's new film "Eisenstein in Guanajuato" have surfaced. The film, which follows Russian iconoclast Sergei Eisenstein's ten days spent in the titular city, is currently filming in Mexico. Eisenstein's sensual experiences in Guanajuato in 1931 greatly influenced his life and his films. Check out the photos below. Though the British filmmaker behind such startlingly radical films as "The Cook, the Thief, His Wife and Her Lover" (1989) and "The Pillow Book"(1996) has mostly been working on experimental art projects, Peter Greenaway has put out a couple of features in recent years, including "Goltzius and the Pelican Company" (2012) with F. Murray Abraham. The "Eisenstein" cast includes Finnish actor Elmer Back in the title role, Mexican actor Luis Alberti in the role of his guide (Palomino Canedo), South African actor Stelio Savante as Hunter S. Kimbrough and Lisa Owen as Mary Craig Sinclair.  A master visual stylist whose films. »

First Photos From Peter Greenaway’s ‘Eisenstein In Guanajuato’ As Filming Begins In Mexico

4 February 2014 10:00 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Still as much of an enigma as when he first burst onto the scene in 1981 with “The Draughtsman’s Contract," director Peter Greenaway has consistently shirked the conventional approach and stayed true to a unique narrative compass from film-to-film. That means heading from a stagy drama, inspired by the 16th century Dutch engraver Hendrick Goltzius, to a planned “romantic comedy”. The latter has been pushed, unfortunately, but the project that will replace it has its own share of passion—especially in regards to one of cinema’s pioneers. Sergei Eisenstein, the Soviet Russian filmmaker and “Father of Montage," has proven a figure rarely dramatized in films following his impact, but Greenaway aims to do just that with “Eisenstein in Guanajuato," which follows a life-changing ten days of love and humanism in 1930s Mexico with the director. Finnish actor Elmer Back (“The Spiral”) will step into Eisenstein’s shoes alongside a supporting cast of Luis Alberti, »
