Welcome

Welcome Fiona Clark Festival Producer

We are thrilled to present this wonderful collection of films and special events for the 61st Cork Film Festival. Cork Film Festival is an audience festival, loyally supported by Corkonians, and attracting visitors from all over Ireland and abroad, reflecting an unstinting curiosity, appetite and appreciation for the arts. We hope that you will be equally excited, entertained and inspired by this year’s programme.

James Mullighan Creative Director

A very warm welcome to the 61st Cork Film Festival. I am very proud of the Programme that the team and I have created: a veritable cornucopia of entertaining, challenging, thrilling and amazing films from each corner of the globe, including our own corner in Cork. Whether it is perhaps 2016’s most talked about film The Birth of a Nation, or a timely documentary holding a mirror up to society, you’ll find something in these pages that you are certain to enjoy.

Helen Boyle Chair of the Board

The Board gratefully acknowledges the significant and enduring support of the Festival’s funders and partners, and in particular, our Principal Funder, the Arts Council, and Cork City Council. We are delighted to continue our partnership with RTÉ as Principal Partner, and we welcome all our new and returning sponsors and partners. Sincere thanks to the Festival team and volunteers, and above all, our loyal audience, for your continued support - we hope to reward you with a wonderful Festival in 2016.

Cllr Des Cahill Ardmhéara Chorcaí, Lord Mayor of Cork

I am delighted to welcome you to the 61st edition of the Cork Film Festival, one of the City’s most significant and popular annual arts events. Cork can proudly boast a rich and diverse arts sector, supporting local artists whilst embracing ideas and visitors from abroad. The Festival embodies all this and more, fostering artistic collaboration, and offering audiences a magical experience through the power of ground-breaking, visionary and entertaining film.

Steven Cantor | UK, Russia, Ukraine, USA | 2016 | 85mins

Blessed with astonishing power and poise, Sergei Polunin took the dance world by storm and became the Royal Ballet’s youngest ever principal. He revolutionised notions of ballet and became a mainstream celebrity in his own right. At the peak of his success, aged 25, he walked away, driven to the brink of selfdestruction by stardom. Here is an unprecedented look into the life of a complex young man who has made ballet go viral. Courtesy of Dogwoof

A beautiful witch wants someone to love her and leaves a string of hapless victims in her quest, driving her to the brink of insanity and murder. Presented in the style of a vibrantly-colourful 1960s B-movie, The Love Witch explores female fantasy and the repercussions of pathological narcissism.

The Festival is delighted to close with Amma Asante’s powerful and heartwarming telling of the true story of the interracial marriage of Englishwoman Ruth Williams to the former Bechuanaland royal Seretse Khama, who led his nation to independence from the British Empire. David Oyelowo plays the new country Botswana’s first President, and Rosamund Pike the accomplished white middle class office worker, whose romance and then marriage outrages everyone – his family, hers, South African Government officials, the Botswanian people and British officialdom and society alike. All contributions – Sam McCurdy’s gorgeous photography of the sweeping plains of Botswana, Patrick Doyle’s emotive score and Simon Bowles’s meticulous production design are standouts – combining to glorious effect, delivering a pitch perfect night in the cinema.

FRI 18 | 1900 | GATE

I Am Not a Serial Killer Billy O’Brien | Ireland, UK | 2016 | 104mins

THU 17 | 2045 | THE EVERYMAN

Clinically diagnosed sociopath teenager John (Max Records) obsesses over Jeffrey Dahmer, utterly convinced of his understanding of and empathy with psychopathy, to the point that he confesses to his shrink he’s worried that he might hurt someone. His weird – what is it? A fixation? A gift? – is put to use when he believes he is on the trail of his town’s ‘real’ serial killer; he alone can catch him. This bold, dexterous thriller hybrid from Irish Producer Nick Ryan (director, The Summit, CFF13) and Cork native writer/director Billy O’Brien, is simultaneously both a tension ratcheting rollercoaster ride and a wry positing of contemporary adolescent sociopathy.

Thursday 17 November

S p e c i al Ir i s h Pr e s e n ta t i o n s

Beitar Jerusalem FC is known for having the most controversial fans in the Israeli soccer league. Their most loyal – and most right-wing – fans are known as ‘la Familia' and pride themselves that the team has remained ‘forever pure’, never having fielded an Arab player. When in 2012 the team selects two Chechen Muslims to join the squad, controversy, racism and hatred embroil the team. This Irish co-produced documentary is a disturbing portrait of a society rife with extreme nationalism, and a timely topic when right-wing politics globally is on the rise.

This screening will be followed by a Q+A with dir. Billy O’Brien and prod. Nick Ryan

SAT 19 NOV | 1800 | THE EVERYMAN | â‚Ź12/10

Mumford & Sons have never stayed still. An innate desire to travel, to meet people and to do the unexpected has become a calling card of sorts as fans the world over join their community and fall in love with their constantly evolving music. This film follows the band as they play the major cities of South Africa with an eclectic mix of musician friends. Along the way they set a fresh challenge for themselves, taking their collaborative culture one step further as they attempt to write and record a mini-album in just two days. The film explores the art of songwriting in an unforced and natural way and captures the journey and story as a group of artists collide, bringing references, ideas and musical styles from Senegal, Sweden, Malawi, Cape Town and London. Donal Gallagher hosts this special screening, and is joined by special guests Courtesy of Eagle Rock Films and Sunshine Pictures

Focus on Germany

At the heart of the European project have always been France and Germany, and it is to the latter’s cinema that the Festival turns for this special focus. From Dietrich Brüggemann’s coruscating and outrageous spoof of neo-Nazism Heil, through a timely Catholic Church abuse cover up drama The Culpable, to the psychological power plays of Matthias X Oberg’s Zazy (in Competition), this hugely diverse mini Festival in a Festival is a celebration of a cinema superpower.

NSF Talks: Perceptions of Vision

Perceptions of Vision is a series of lectures, presentations and screenings produced and programmed by the National Sculpture Factory specifically designed to create cross-disciplinary dialogues between visual artists and filmmakers working within the realm of film and video. Artists by their nature surpass straightforward film categorisations or qualifications, challenging modes of production, presentation and reception that alter our relationships to the artifice of film while constantly generating new narratives for engagement and understanding.

“I don’t look at a face,” says Donna Washington in Mike Hoolboom’s extraordinarily moving Scrapbook. “I disappear into it.” The mercurial Hoolboom has long been a doyenne of experimental film, proudly inhabiting the margins. Yet major film festivals such as Edinburgh and his native Toronto have garlanded him with Best Short Film Awards. It’s a reminder that experimental doesn’t necessarily mean niche. Therefore we hope you find plenty here to disappear into.

Their harmony is shattered when the news comes that their child will be born with a severe disability and they must grapple with the decision of whether or not to terminate the pregnancy. Unflinching and earnest with impressively naturalistic performances, Berrached treats this complex issue with grace and honesty. This poignant film will of course resonate even more strongly here in Ireland amidst the current movement to repeal the eighth amendment. This screening will be followed by a panel discussion.

Certain Women Kelly Reichardt | USA | 2016 | 107mins

1830 | THE EVERYMAN | €12/10 The Festival celebrates its return ‘home’ to The Everyman with Kelly Reichardt’s impeccably judged study of the lives of Montana women, starring Michelle Williams, Laura Dern and Kristen Stewart. Reichardt returns to the American West, by way of Maile Meloy’s short stories, but upends its traditional associations. Here, the rugged men of yesteryear struggle with age, injury, and indignation while the women imperfectly blaze trails. Reichardt’s unhurried, observational style resists judgment or sentimentality. The picturesque setting masks lives of quiet desperation and conflicting emotion. The intersecting stories strain with longing, populated by flawed people wrestling with moral ambiguity and living between isolation and intimacy. Courtesy of Sony Pictures and Park Circus.

His kinship with icon Iggy Pop (who cameoed in his films Dead Man and Coffee and Cigarettes) sees Gimme Danger get as close to the enigmatic band as any film could. The Stooges bottled lightning in the late 60s and early 70s, retching out three classic albums of sinister blues squall.

1830 | GATE ‘Comfort Women’ was the term used for young women and girls from across Asia taken from their homes by the Japanese army during WWII and forced into sexual slavery. After the war they were discarded, and today the few remaining survivors, who are in their nineties, still fight courageously for an official apology from the Japanese government. The ‘grandmas’, as they are fondly known, grapple with their traumatic pasts, face stigma and derision, and continue to fight for justice with a warmth of heart and dignity that is both heart-wrenching and inspirational.

Yet this is a film about life - Thérèse’s life, her politics and her ideologies which had many iterations. Her impact on the feminist movement is immeasurable. It is unusual enough to see women of this age celebrated and honored in any form onscreen, but that “The Lives of Thérèse” does it in such a heartbreakingly unsentimental manner approaches the transcendent. – Jessica Kiang, Variety Queer Palme d’Or – Cannes 2016

Power on the Box 1300 | TRISKEL CHRISTCHURCH What impact did the arrival of television have on the way the Irish state did Democracy’?. 55 years after the establishment of Teilifís Eireann and in the wake of historic elections on both sides of the Atlantic, it is timely to assess if television has purified or perverted the way in which our politicians perform their public duties. In the chamber, on the campaign trail, in the count centre and in gladiatorial debate, did the unrelenting glare of the audience hold our public representatives to account or to ransom? Power On The Box tells this rollercoaster story. Authored by Harry McGee, and commissioned by RTÉ, it is the tale of how TV changed Irish politics forever. Courtesy of RTÉ

Layla M. Mijke de Jong | Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Jordan | 2016 | 98mins Subtitled

1800 | THE EVERYMAN Radicalised by her adopted country’s anti-Muslim measures, a Dutch-Moroccan teenager marries a devout jihadist and leaves Amsterdam to join an Islamist cell in the Middle East – only to discover that her new community has its own restrictions and prejudices. This is a powerful drama about a young woman who, marginalised even within her own family, embarks on a search for identity, community, and purpose. Among director Mijke de Jong's many feats is the way she makes Layla's choices all too fathomable given her circumstances. This is not a film about someone longing for violence, rather, it's about someone desperate to truly belong somewhere.

1500 | THE EVERYMAN The Eagle Huntress is a story for all the family, following Aisholpan, a 13-year-old Mongolian girl, as she trains to become the first female in 12 generations of her family to become an eagle hunter. Narrated by executive producer Daisy Ridley (Star Wars: the Force Awakens), and featuring stunning cinematography by Simon Niblett, this riveting documentary is a rare look at one of the world's last true wildernesses. It's a larger-thanlife story, but one that's anchored by intimate moments. Our young heroine's passion takes her on an incredible journey with an enriching and empowering lesson that will set hearts soaring. This film is recommended for ages 10+

2100 | THE EVERYMAN Fans of Chan-wook Park’s (Oldboy) ‘ultraness’ – style, shock, decors, action, eroticism – are in for a treat with this relocation of Sarah Waters’s 2002 lesbian historical crime novel Fingersmith from Victorian England to Korea under Japanese rule. Young Sookee is plucked from her impoverished family and hired by devious playboy The Count. His plan is for her to serve Lady Hideko, a repressed, hysterical aristocrat who lives in lavish imprisonment, on the country estate owned by her sadistic uncle, to help him seduce and marry her, and then drive her mad.

Blazing Saddles Mel Brooks | USA | 1974 | 93mins

1200 | THE EVERYMAN Definitely a contender for one of the least tasteful movies of all time is this comedy masterpiece of Mel Brooks. The nonsensical plot – tangled, shaky and silly – doesn’t matter here. What does is the opportunity to see on the big screen, for the first time for many, the late great Gene Wilder in one of his most accomplished and polished comedy roles; Harvey Korman as Hedley Lamarr (*not* ‘Hedi’); Brooks himself chewing the scenery as Governor William J Lepetomane; Madeline Kahn as the Marlene Dietrich-esque Lili von Shtupp; Mongol knocking out a horse; and, of course, that baked beans scene. The low comedy masterpiece with everything, there’s even a pie fight. Courtesy of Park Circus

Almost four years passed when out of nowhere Owen began to communicate through the language of Disney films. For Owen the films gave him a tool with which to break the confines of his disability, to engage and to grow. Life Animated follows Owen’s journey to adulthood and independence and tells the story of his own Disney-esque triumphs. Life Animated will be followed by a panel discussion exploring life with autism, disability and notions of difference and acceptance.

Sunset Boulevard Billy Wilder | USA | 1950 | 110mins

1500 | THE EVERYMAN Gloria Swanson as Norma Desmond, an aging silent film queen, and William Holden as the struggling writer who is held in thrall by her madness, are two of the silver screen's most memorable characters, in this truly cinematic classic. From the unforgettable opening sequence through to the inevitable unfolding of tragic destiny, the film is the definitive statement on the dark and desperate side of Hollywood. Erich von Stroheim as Desmond's discoverer, ex-husband and butler, and Nancy Olson as the bright spot in unrelenting ominousness, are equally celebrated for their masterful performances.
