Dokumentar Branchetræf 2017

Dokumentarismen stiller spørgsmål ved alt og alle. Kan den også stille spørgsmål ved sig selv? Har vi øje for blinde vinkler i vores måder at arbejde på? Er der antagelser, som vi ikke tager livtag med?

Én sådan kunne være om vi har haft for travlt med at betone det subjektive ved dokumentarismen. Hvordan adskiller det sig fra det post-faktuelle? Har vi måske medvirket til post-faktualisering? Er der brug for en anden grundforståelse af, hvorfra vi taler og hvad vi har at byde på? En anden antagelse er, at dokumentarisme kommer ud af interaktion mellem mennesker foran og bag kameraet. Vi tager medvirkende med til Q & A’s og vil gerne give publikum indtryk af, at der er en god og speciel relation mellem hold og hovedpersoner. Men er den relation en nødvendighed for at lave gode film? Der er film, hvor instruktøren f.eks. aldrig har mødt de medvirkende. Er det et problem? Hvad fører et elendigt forhold til medvirkende til? Tør vi tale om det?

Branchetræffet afholdes fredag d. 25 og lørdag d. 26 august på Den Danske Filmskole.
Hermed er der lagt op til at vi bryder med internat traditionen. Det har vi valgt at forsøge efter at evalueringer peger i retning af et ønske om mindre rejsetid, søndag fri samt en reduceret deltagerbetaling.
Vi vil så til gengæld love jer at inddrage alle elementer af internatet – undtagen sengene.
Vi skal blive inspireret, provokeret og vi skal diskutere med hinanden. Vi skal møde hinanden over en roterende mingle dinner, hylde vinderen af Roos prisen 2017 under lørdagens festmiddag, grille og drikke drinks i haven og varme os rundt om bålet i de lyse morgentimer.
Og så indfører vi en ny mulighed for at møde eksperter, nationale og internationale, som har en viden de gerne vil dele.
Vi har tilbudt danske dokumentarproduktionsselskaber, at de kan invitere en ekspert, hvis indsigt hele branchen kan få glæde af. Det kunne eksempelvis være nogen med særlig indsigt i distribution i Sydamerika, tendenser i kinesisk dokumentar, amerikanske kontrakter eller noget helt andet.
Eksperterne er tilstede under hele branchetræffet og ”hoster” hver et bord under fredagens mingling dinner.

Pawel Lozinski

        

Polish director, cameraman and producer of documentary films. Graduate of the Directing Department at the Film School in Lodz. Lozinski makes distinct and emotionally charged documentaries about people of whom he draws intimate portraits. His latest film You Have No Idea How Much I Love You is an innovative venture into new thematic areas where he explores uncharted space within the documentary film genre.

You Have No Idea How Much I Love You – Poland – 2016 – 80 min.
Relationships with the people you love most are often the most complicated. This is the problem Hania and her mother Ewa face during their sessions with a psychotherapist, filmed intimately and with the utmost respect by director Pawel Lozinski. The camera always focuses on one person at a time, revealing every emotion hidden behind the words and silences. The empathetic therapist carefully but purposefully peels away the hard layers under which mother and daughter shield themselves. Little by little, the personal tragedies that hamper their communication rise to the surface, as well as the source of the longing for love and acknowledgement that they find so hard to fulfill. The documentary takes place within four walls and a tight framework, yet at the same time it makes a long and fascinating journey to the inner recesses of the human mind: sometimes dark, sometimes warm, always familiar.


Torstein Grude

       

Torstein Grude is a film writer, director, cinematographer, creative producer, co-producer and executive producer dedicated to the creation of films deeply infused with the real. His films are most often political and/or philosophical and deal with human rights or gender related issues as well as spiritual and cognitive liberties.

Mogadishu Soldier - Norway/Finland/Denmark – 2016 – 84 min.
Since 2006, the radical Islamists of Al-Shabaab have been fighting to overthrow the Somali government. Under the UN flag, the African Union is now engaged in a peacekeeping mission (AMISOM), with soldiers from Burundi and Uganda. These troops are fighting Al-Shabaab in the center of Mogadishu, Somalia’s capital city, with a population of two million. Documentary filmmaker Torstein Grude gave two African Union soldiers a camera with instructions to film whatever they felt was important. For an entire year, they documented diverse aspects of warfare, from firefights in trenches and life on the base to the dead and wounded lying in the streets. They also filmed conversations with local people hoping for food and water, soldiers fantasizing about women, and the arrival of an embedded journalist. War is shown to be banal and chaotic, with periods of boredom and instances of both compassion and gross inhumanity. Taken from no fewer than 523 tapes, this compilation gives an honest and sometimes revealing glimpse behind the scenes of war.

 

Audrius Stonys

      

Audrius Stonys is from Lithuania and member of European Film Academy and European Documentary Network. He began his creative activities in the last years of the Soviet Empire and since that time he has made 14 films as an independent filmmaker and producer.

Woman and the Glacier – Lithuania / Estonia – 2016 – 56 min.
The Lithuanian scientist Aušra Revutaite has spent 30 years in the Tian Shan mountain range in Central Asia, straddling the borders between Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and the autonomous Chinese region of Xinjiang. Some 3,500 meters above sea level with only her faithful dog and gray cat for company, she studies climate change on the Tuyuksu Glacier at an old Soviet-era research station. She loves the solitude and silence that her painstaking work brings her. Magnificent shots of her surroundings and everyday work are interspersed with archive footage of the people who preceded her by a century. Not much seems to have changed. We see dripping, melting ice in imposing caves, streams flowing through desolate mountain passes, and Revutaite’s pets, playing together almost in silence. Living with Revutaite in the solitude she has chosen for herself, the two animals only have each other. The solemn silence of the mountains is punctuated sparingly by the music of a man far, far below, playing a traditional instrument.

 

Kyoko Miyake

      

Kyoko is a Peabody award winning filmmaker from Japan. Born in Japan, Kyoko Miyake studied history at Tokyo University and then moved to Britain to research the history of witchcraft at Oxford. Today Kyoko is based in New York.

Tokyo Idols – UK – Canada Co-Production – 2017
Girl bands and their pop music permeate every moment of Japanese life. Following and aspiring pop singer and her fans, Tokyo Idols explores a cultural phenomenon driven by an obsession with young female sexuality, and the growing disconnect between men and women in hypermodern societies.
 

Monika Willi

      

Monika is a highly acclaimed editor who has edited for European top directors such as Michael Haneke and Michael Glawogger. More than three years after the sudden death of Michael Glawogger in April 2014, Monika realizes a film out of the film footage produced during 4 months and 19 days of shooting in the Balkans, Italy, Northwest and West Africa.

Untitled – Michael Glawogger, Monika Willi – 105 min
“I want to give a view of the world that can only emerge by not pursuing any particular theme, by refraining from passing judgment, proceeding without aim. Drifting with no direction except one’s own curiosity and intuition”. Michael Glawogger
Untitled is a journey into the world to observe, listen and experience, the eye attentive, courageous and raw. Serendipity is the concept – in shooting as well as in editing the film.
