Films in ‘Spectrum’
FilmPhobiaKiko Goifman IFFR 2009
The making of an unfinished film about phobias. Says the director. Behind the screens, he discusses at length (with e.g. Coffin Joe) about the aesthetic boundaries of the project: volunteers under controlled circumstances become immersed in their phobias in order to film the fear on their faces.
Tiro en la cabezaJaime Rosales IFFR 2009 84′
That looking well is fascinating but not always simple, is proven by this virtually dialogue-less experimental surveillance thriller. With a long lens, Rosales follows often obscure actions and encounters. Based on a deadly shooting incident with members of ETA.
DeltaKornél Mundruczó IFFR 2009 92′
Tragic love story in a primitive rural community on the banks of a gently flowing Danube serenades lovers who remain faithful to their deepest sexual convictions despite the norm.
Biopic by Michael Gordon Peterson aka Charles Bronson, the longest serving prisoner in the United Kingdom. Amazing physical leading role by Tom Hardy and the cinematographic style of Nicolas Winding Refn (Pusher) turn the cabaretesquely violent film into a confrontational experience.
