CUTTING EAST FILM FESTIVAL INTRODUCTION

CONTENTS

Following last years amazing inaugural festival, we have assembled a fantastic new team that we are truly proud to say has delivered a program which will inspire creativeness and passion in young people. We’ve brought together a truly special selection of films, music, art, and spoken word that will appeal to young people across the capital. Cutting East truly believe that young people have a voice to be heard and as programmers, we have curated three days of events that we believe have the potential to reach out and give a positive message of the young people of today.

The curating of a film festival is definitely a unique experience. Aside from simply watching the films, we share our thoughts on potential events; we discuss the impacts of specific films on the audience and try to figure out why one film should be shown over another. We also believe that film is not the only medium where we can get inspiration from, so we have programmed music and workshop events that showcase local talent and get discussions going, and are not just limited to being films that we believe will appeal.

In the short period that Cutting East has been around, we have been able to meet such amazing people who share the same views and ambitions as us and we hope that we are able to keep meeting, inspiring, and being inspired by the many people we meet. The community is a big part of who we are, the east end of London is a place which we are all proud to say has made a big impact on our lives! Everyone here at Cutting East hopes you have a good time during the festival and we hope you enjoy the films as much as we do! 3

Art, culture and creativity: three things that I have great an eagerness for. I absolutely la-la-la-love films! As a keen Geographer and science enthusiast I like to combine all areas and present the most powerful messages through the use of film, as well appreciate them. After all...films can change the world!

AKIKUR RAHMAN

SHANICE LAWSON

My name is AK, its short for Akikur. I’m from the east side of that river. I love working on projects that involve creative thinking. I’m a very ambitious and out of the box kind of person.

Hi! My name’s Shanice and I’m a programmer from last year. I am so excited that Cutting East is back for a second year. I have learnt so much from last year’s festival that I can put into this year. It has really boosted my confidence and although it’s been tough juggling it alongside Uni, it’s really preparing me for life after I graduate.


MIFTAUL ISLAM

SHAKRUL WAYAS Hi, I’m Shakrul, 20, studying English at Goldsmiths University. I would say my dream is to get my scripts onto the big screen, but dreams are overrated. I see it as my ambition, and Cutting East aids as a stepping stone to bring me one step closer to fulfilling my ambition.

DIEGO CAICEDO-GALINDO One year on from the first ever Cutting East Film Festival, I feel like we’ve got a team who will be able to deliver a festival that will do 2013 proud! The 2014 team have already made an impact, the ideas are flowing and everyone is contributing to what will be an amazing three days of events. I feel lucky to be able to share my experiences with everyone who is involved this year, and I can see Cutting East growing and growing to new heights

JONATHON CAICEDO-GALINDO This year will be my second year with Cutting East. I feel that the team has developed into the role of programming with more confidence and I’m excited about where Cutting East 2 will lead us next!

The name’s Miftaul Islam - a student and enthusiast of the Creative Arts universe. I have lived on for 2 decades now, and I can happily say, I’ve loved every minute! From a young age, I’ve always found myself being attracted towards this creative world that encompasses us all. Through these years I’ve had a significant growth in my interest towards this world. My main aspirations lie within the path of creative writing and filmmaking, and Cutting East is a fantastic project that allows me to utilise my talents, as well as honing my craft. Cheers!

MO MALICK My name is Mo Malick. I’m an aspiring actor, director and writer. I’ve always loved story telling and coming from a Somali background story telling is in my DNA. At college I studied creative media which included directing and this is where I was introduced to the power of the camera and how it can be used to tell a story on its own. I first joined Cutting East because I wanted to see how things work, I’ve been to film festivals and now I wanted to be part of one. The selling point for me was all the other programmers were in my age group and we all had similar aspirations.

AMRAN AHMED As an aspiring screenwriter and filmmaker, the opportunity of programming a film festival is a perfect platform to divulge in the world of entertainment and creativity; uncovering an abundance of local talent and hopeful individuals in an effort to create the best possible three day event for our audience. Being responsible for the Cutting East programming team has given me a plethora of knowledge; from meticulously mapping out all the particulars of the event, to understanding what makes a good festival, and what the audience would enjoy. Being a part of the team has further expanded my love for film, and has made me more determined to persevere within the world of entertainment.

Salma, here! Becoming an edition to Cutting East was a decision partly made to combat the shyness that tends to override me in situations but mostly because of the one thing that binds us all at Cutting East together and that is our undying love for films!

HANIFA RAHMAN

Hi there! my passions for media had film making had encouraged me to be part of  the Cutting East team, as I have always been curious of what it would be like to be behind the production stage of creating a film festival.

Hey I’m Alex. I’m one of the programmers at Cutting East. I joined the project for last year’s festival after hearing about it from a teacher at college. Being part of Cutting East has pushed me to consider my future with film. 5


A TALE OF TWO CITIES “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of light, it was the season of darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair.” Charles Dickens

MIFTAUL ISLAM

A tale of two entities. A broken mirror with two separate reflections. Tale of two cities - a paradox distinguished by the literary wizard that is Charles Dickens - in 1859. And yet centuries on, this memorable adage still resonates through the present day. Whether in life or in paranormal spirituality, a reflection of what is and what was, seamlessly conform to the thin veil that separates these two cities. Through everyday living, people live to tell the tales –the highs and lows the vibrant and the melancholy - and that the gap between both entities have only widened. Old and young, prosperity and poverty entities, which are separated by a gaunt line molded by the human race. Cutting East film festival takes on ‘a tale of two cities’ as a theme this year to highlight the surging rate at which the gaps widen and how communities and individuals overcome them. Based in the epicenter of East London, a location that couldn’t be more befitting of this distinguished paradox, the festival will explore the polarizations within the cities; whether rich or poor, whether young or old, the festival will aim to bridge the gap and provide a timeless entertainment to unite. East london, is a location that best serves as the canvas that showcases the growth of multiple cities in one painting. Those who experience the tale will leave telling the tale of two cities.

BACK TO BOLLYWOOD EXHIBITION

Genesis Foyer throughout the festival In the East End of the 1970’s no less than four individual cinemas catered to the area’s burgeoning South Asian community. Screening films from India, Bangladesh and Pakistan, audiences flocked to see favourite film stars and hear the latest musical soundtracks. Yet these spaces were so much more than simply moviehouses; hosting visiting VIPs and Bollywood actors, and becoming a base of action in the fight against racism cinemas like Brick Lane’s ‘Naz’ and Mile End’s ‘Liberty’ were sites of community belonging. Recalling this almost forgotten world this Heritage Lottery funded exhibition brings together rarely seen film posters, memories of original cinema-goers recently collected in oral history interviews, and photographic portraits

NEIGHBOURHOODS

FROM MUMBAI TO MILE END UK & INDIA 90mins|12.00PM What does neighbourhood mean to you? Join in this lively discussion to watch a selection of short documentary films made by young people about hoods in Mumbai and East London exploring how generations take root in, and young people make use of, their environment in these two very different but vibrant cities. The films feature rag-picking, breakdance, ghettoization, struggle, enjoying a day in the hood and what home means. The screening will be followed by a discussion of the themes raised by the films, exploring what we might learn about the similarities and differences of life in Mumbai and Mile End and how the use of technology is creating an insight into the many lives in the hoods. This screening and discussion is a collaboration between Mile End Community Project, Tata Institute of Social Sciences (Mumbai) and Queen Mary, University of London.

So, in this Tale of Two Cities, how do they react to this? For some, it is a day of joy and happiness. Comfortable in the knowledge that the money they have earned will go a long way, they are free to do what they please. For others, however, it is a day that brings short term relief. Their monthly lifeline has come in and now comes the task of trying to use every single penny in the most productive way possible. PAYDAY gives a personal insight into the different ways in which young people from different backgrounds deal with this day. PAYDAY, directed by FRED&NICK and narrated by George the Poet, is a unique performance documentary, which delves into the finances and lives of four twentysomethings. The film focuses on the contrasting lives of our diverse cast from the moment they receive their ‘payday’ money to how they go on to spend, save or squander it

EAST END FILM FESTIVAL Now in its thirteenth year, East End Film Festival comes of age with a celebration of teen-focused world cinema including:

HERE & NOW Inner-city girl Grace initially resists a trip to the country with her parents, leaving East Ham for a rural idyll in a bid to save a failing marriage, Grace resolves to tough it out but when she meets country boy Say, her tough and spiky exterior slowly begins to crumble. Spending their days together in this peaceful, quiet retreat, they begin to let go of their respective hang-ups, and come to understand one another in a way that goes way beyond a holiday romance. A touching portrait of summer love.

CLUB SANDWICH Celebrated Mexican new wave director, Eimbcke returns with another awkward comedy of manners. 15 year-old HĂŠctor discovers love and sex whilst on holiday with his mother. Together they lounge by the pool until 16-year-old Jazmin arrives, and the two teenagers gravitate toward one another. A lovely, believable drama of shifting sands, and coming of age.

LEAVE TO REMAIN An Afghan boy arrives at a refugee home setting off a chain of unforeseen events in this powerful film by lauded television director Goodison who worked with unprofessional actors to create unforgettable characters. With an original sound track from Mercury-winners Alt-J, this is a timely cinematic take on the experience of many refugees in the UK, falling emotively between documentary realism and heightened drama. 14

WE ARE MARI PEPA Alex, a Guadalajara teen, dreams of finding a girlfriend, and winning the upcoming “battle of the bands” with his band Mari Pepa. The only problem? You need two songs, and they only have one. The band’s attempt to come up with a second track becomes a vehicle for their collective angst, as their lives begin to shift over one summer.

METALHEAD Born just as Black Sabbath were giving birth to heavy metal, Hera leads a happy childhood until her brother is killed in a farming accident. Blaming herself, she takes on his love for metal, yearning for escape and a life playing music. Her existence seems paused until an unexpected group of fans arrive with one of her tapes, and everything begins to change. A charming, funny tale of cows, snowy mountains and hard rock.

RHYMES FOR YOUNG GHOULS On a Native American reserve in 1976, a 15 year old girl is coping with the violent death of her mother and brother. As she prepares to welcome her father home from prison things begin to become dangerous thanks to escalating harassment from a local law enforcement agent. Mixing film noir, teen caper, supernatural fable, and a refreshingly tough female protagonist, this is a hard-hitting debut
