Films in ‘Bright Future’
AwaydaysPat Holden IFFR 2009 104′
An engaging, exuberant portrait of young men during the early Thatcher years, who engage in a world of boozy train journeys, Stanley knives and savage violence. Kevin Sampson adapted his own cult novel about the fickle friendship between Carty and Elvis against a backdrop of football hooliganism and a great post-punk score.
Blind LovesJuraj Lehotsky IFFR 2009 77′
A simultaneously poetic and amusing film taken from real life: the love stories of several blind people, their search for love, their hopes and disappointments. Blind people are natural performers, allowing us to enter their intimate world. A small film pearl.
That's ItMatheus Souza IFFR 2009
Young director (21) made a very refreshing and sympathetic film début about an infatuated couple that decides to separate in an hour. We experience this last hour with them. With lots of improvisation, humorous dialogues, confusing situations and entertaining play.
