Batumi International Art House Film Festival is an important cultural event in Georgia. Festival becomes more genuine annually and it attracts influential guests. It has been already 3 years since Georgian National Film Center (GNFC) supports the festival. The support of GNFC crosses the border of financial backing. In association with the festival management, GNFC tries to reinforce popularity of the festival on an international level. By joint action, we hope that through the years the festival scales will increase, additional sections will appear and a powerful industrial element will develop. Such tendency is already noticeable this year. On September 17-24 Batumi will host many representatives of powerful film organizations. Topical discussions and presentations will take place. Through direct involvement of GNFC the round table on the importance of regional funds and perspectives will be organized. Thereby, we will one more time underline actuality and profitability of the formation of the fund for the film development in Adjara. Tourist development of Adjara is a political priority of Georgia. With this tendency, Batumi will appear on an international map quite actively and attract tourist interest. Film tourism is a recognized formula. Development of these two spheres complements each other and reinforces fame of the country. BIAFF is namely that kind of event, which should be formed as one of the most major cultural attractions of the city. Interesting program, guests and pleasant activities of the festival are forwarded to this goal. I would like to wish luck to the festival team and would be glad to host our foreign friends and guests on behalf of GNFC. TAMAR TATISHVILI Director of Georgian National Film Center

dariuS mehrjui BIOGRAPHY

As an Iranian New Wave cinema icon, Mehrjui is regarded to be one of the intellectual directors, who introduced realism, symbolism, and the sensibilities of art cinema. Dariush Mehrjui was born in Tehran, Iran, in 1939. As an adult, he moved to the United States and entered the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), Department of Cinema. He switched his major to philosophy and graduated from UCLA in 1964. His second featured film, Cow (1969), brought him national and international recognition. In 1971, the film was smuggled out of Iran and submitted to the Venice IFF, where, without programming or subtitles, it became the largest event of that year’s festival. The film was a turning point in the history of Iranian cinema. In 1973 Mehrjui began directing what was to be his most acclaimed film “The Cycle”. The film won the FIPRESCI Prize at the Berlin IFF in 1978. In 1981, he traveled to Paris and remained there for several years, during which time he made a feature-length semi-documentary for French TV. In film “Hamoun” (1989), Mehrjui sought to depict his generation’s post-revolutionary turn from politics to mysticism. The ‘90s also found Mehrjui releasing films dealing with women’s issues. Leila (1996) was all Mehrjui’s own and the first to receive any sort of wide theatrical release in the West. His last films include Santoori (2007), Tehran, Tehran (2010).

MIDNIGHT IN PARIS

Spain, USA, 2011, 94 min

Director: Woody Allen Screenplay: Woody Allen Director of Photography: Darius Khondji Editor: Alisa Lepselter Cast: Owen Wilson, Rachel McAdams, Kathy Bates, Adrien Brody, Marion Cotillard, Michael Sheen Producer: Letty Aronson, Stephen Tenenbaum, JaumeRoures Production: Mediapro, Versátil Cinema, Gravier Production

BIOGRAPHY

Woody Allen was born in1935, New York. He wrote plays and stories before beginning in film. In the 1970s he made his name as an original writer-director of comedies in which he generally starred. The tragicomedy Annie Hall (1977) showed the more serious side of Allen’s talent, which in the late 1970s and early 1980s began to dominate the parody mosaics he’d made up till then. The problems inherent in emotional relationships and the various neuroses of modern times still remain the central themes of Allen’s work. From the filmography of this very prolific filmmaker (he virtually shoots one title per year) we have selected his more recent work: Match Point (2005), Scoop (2006), Cassandra’s Dream (2007), Vicky Cristina Barcelona(2008), Whatever Works (2009), You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger (2010), andMidnight in Paris (2011).

SYNOPSIS

Two young Americans, who have been together since their school days and are to be married in the fall, head for a few days to Paris where Gil’s fiancée’s father has a business meeting. While Inez and her mother are overjoyed by a chance meeting with another couple, and together they discover the tourist gems of the city and its luxury stores, Gil soaks up the mysterious magic of places where his most admired authors once experienced “a movable feast.” He feels that in Paris he will find the inspiration that will help him exchange his success as a Hollywood screenwriter for the courage to be a novelist. But his road to discovery comes with an unexpected twist, and at the journey’s end Gil discovers what he truly wants from life. In his new romantic comedy, the American filmmaker expresses his love for a city that he considers, after New York, the most beautiful in the world.

For Marian, these moments which allow her to be within a hair’s breadth of death bring her an irresistible sense of absolute intimacy. Outside the “safety” of the hospital Marian leads a secluded, solitary life, violently suppressing all emotion. Until she accidentally becomes involved in an act of mutual voyeurism and finds that she is strongly attracted to a strange man.

Gradually everything the boy was attached to starts to fall apart around him, and if his dead father hadn’t visited him he wouldn’t even know which path to take. The inexperience of youth, loneliness, and impulsiveness prevent him from using reason and cool consideration to face the obstacles in his way, and he even sometimes provokes those who stand by him. And thus he finds himself in a situation for which there is only one solution.

HOLIDAY BY THE SEA

Director: Pascal Rabaté Screenplay: Pascal Rabaté Director of Photography: BenoîtChamaillard Editor: Jean-François Elie Cast: Jacques Gamblin, Maria de Medeiros, François Damiens, François Morel, Dominique Pinon Producer: Xavier Delmas Production: Loin Derrière L’Oural

France, 2011; 77 min.

BIOGRAPHY

Pascal Rabate was born in1961, Angers, France.He graduated in engraving from art school in Angers, where he still lives. He is the author of several comic books, one of which became the basis for his first film, Les petitsruisseaux (2010), an exceptional success with French critics and viewers alike. For his next film, Holidays by the Sea, he also used another of his comics as its starting point. In another professional venture, Rabaté took up acting duties in the 2008 film Louise-Michel (dirs. Gustave de Kervern, BenoîtDélepine).

SYNOPSIS

The weekend is coming and the various inhabitants of France, from punkers to retirees, are heading to a place of relaxation: an old married couple spend it in a trailer, neighbors with their teenage daughters occupy a small house, and a stern father instructs his family how to put up their tent.... The characters of this original comedy are many; But they all have one thing in common: we don’t hear their voices because they don’t communicate with words, but through expressions and gestures. Pascal Rabaté has shot a film without dialogue based on a comic book which he himself wrote. The colorful incidents of these ordinary characters correspond in many ways to the mentality of the people of France – and perhaps even elsewhere.

SYNOPSIS

Saturday, 26 April 1986. A reactor tower has exploded in the Chernobyl nuclear power plant. The Communist Party leadership remains silent. But Valery Kabysh, a one-time percussionist and now a young, loyal Party official, observes the panic of those in charge and realizes that every second counts. Valery tries to leave the city with his girlfriend and his musician friends. But life simply won’t let go of him. It’s Saturday, people are out strolling, shopping, celebrating weddings. Children are playing outdoors. The catastrophe is an omnipresent but invisible character in the story. A lost passport, a broken heel, a missed train… A wedding that calls for music till the very end. Vera has to sing, the musicians have to play, and Valery has to take over for the drunken drummer. Even when Valery’s band knows what is really going on, they continue to celebrate. It’s Saturday, the sun is shining and the grass is green. Still green… It’s a Saturday of innocence and everyone is abandoned to their fate.

THE MILL & THE CROSS Sweden/Poland, 2011; 92 min.

BIOGRAPHY

Born 1953, Katowice, Poland. Lech Majevski is a film and stage director, screenwriter and author, and is regarded as a leading filmmaker of our time. In 2006 the Museum of Modern Art in New York organized a major retrospective of his work; Majewski was the first Polish artist to be honored in this way. He began as a film director at the end of the 1970s. After martial law was declared in the early 80s, he left his native Poland and emigrated to England and subsequently to the USA. He became celebrated not only as a filmmaker but also as an important opera director. He received considerable critical acclaim for The Garden of Earthly Delights (2004), which took away the Grand Prix from the Roma Independent Film Festival. Other more recent films include Wojaczek (1999), Angelus (2000) andGlass Lips (2007)

SYNOPSIS

1564 was the year Pieter Bruegel completed one of his most famous epic paintings, The Procession to Calvary. Christ’s story depicted here is transferred to the period in Bruegel’s life when his nation was suffering under Spanish domination. The painting depicts more than five hundred people, each of whom conceals a unique story. The film by Polish director Lech Majewski is a stunning visual attempt to look into the lives of some of the characters who appear on the canvas. The viewer is transported to Bruegel’s artistic world, to the time of the late Middle Ages. The film traces the process of the creation of Bruegel’s masterpiece and allows us to penetrate the depth of its testimony. It captures the Passion of Christ and the suffering of others, innocent and unknown figures, and thus becomes a remarkable meditation not only on a work of art, but also on religious and philosophical issues.

NEVER LET ME GO UK/USA, 2010,103 min.

BIOGRAPHY

Mark Romanek born September 18, 1959 is an award-winning American music video director who has also moved into directing theatrical films. He released his first film, Static, in 1985. It was co-written with and starred Keith Gordon. After a few years writing screenplays, Romanek decided to focus on music videos. His subsequent work has come to be regarded as among the best of the medium. He has worked with many top-selling recording artists (ex: Michael Jackson, Madonna, Johnny Cash, Nine Inch Nails etc.) from different genres of popular music. In 2002, Romanek wrote and directed his second full-length feature film, One Hour Photo, with Robin Williams in the lead role. Romanek has also directed television commercials for Apple Computer, Acura, Nike, Calvin Klein, American Express, ESPN, Saturn, Honda, and Cirque du Soleil. Never let me go is his third feature film.

SYNOPSIS

Director Mark Romanek and writer Alex Garland team up to adapt Remains of the Day author Kazuo Ishiguro’s introspective sci-fi novel about a group of unsuspecting boarding-school students who make a horrifying discovery about themselves. Sheltered teens Kathy (Carey Mulligan), Ruth (Keira Knightley), and Tommy (Andrew Garfield) all grew up at a remote English boarding school, and now they’re hungry to explore the real world. Their dreams of freedom are soon stifled, however, upon learning that they are nothing more than clones created specifically for organ harvesting. Now, in addition to confronting their own mortality, all three must come to terms with a lifetime of emotions and unfulfilled longings while pondering their true purpose for being.

ROOM 304

Denmark/Croatia, 2011; 88 min.

BIOGRAPHY

Birgitte Stærmose born in 1963, Denmark) graduated in film and media arts from Temple University in Philadelphia. She has shot several short films which have won prizes at foreign festivals (Sundance, Berlin, Rotterdam), including Now, Look at Me (2001), Small Avalanches (2003), Letters from Denmark (2006), Principles of Attraction (2006), and Sophie (2006, ARTE prize). Her first documentary, Out of Love (2009), received a Special Mention at the Berlin film festival. Room 304marks her debut in features as a director. At present she is cooperating with well-known dramatist Peter Asmussen on the script for her next movie Julie’s Face, inspired by August Strindberg’s theater play Miss Julie.

SYNOPSIS

Director Birgitte Stærmose’s multi-layered drama takes place over the course of three days in a Copenhagen hotel and revolves around a mysterious gunshot. The protagonists are several characters whose diametrically opposed life stories gradually intertwine, both accidentally and intentionally – a lonely flight attendant comes to the hotel looking for love; a couple of immigrant hotel employees are seeking revenge; a desperate hotel manager; a woman whose husband has left her; a reception clerk who keeps trying (in vain) to smile more when welcoming guests; and many others. The leitmotifs of this multicultural movie include intimacy, forgiveness, and human frailty. Stærmose succeeds in skillfully articulating the movie’s visual style in concord with the individual stories of the protagonists, who feel constricted not only by their own lives but also within the closed walls of the hotel. Of making her debut, the director said: “I have always been fascinated by hotels as a secret place outside of time and space. What happens behind all those closed doors?” Her picture provides one possible answer.

SYNOPSIS

The elder gentleman, the anthropologist, has an entire life’s collection of eroticmoments. He has written many poems where he steps back into the observer���sdistance of the erotic. It has been his gift to master a double grasp on the eroticsituation: To live it fully and to observe it at the same time. He studied eroticism framing sexual desire and has caught its circling dramaturgy. He has experimented with watching a burning hot material with the coolness of distance. Now late in his life he feels he doesn’t have the energy to maintain the double grasp, but he continues to see eroticism for his inner eye as an unbroken stream of moods and emotions.He feels a need to finish the work, organize his collection of moments.

EXIT THROUGH THE GIFT SHOP USA/UK, 2010, 87 min.

BIOGRAPHY

Banksy is the pseudonym of the world’s best-known guerilla artist. His weapons are spray paint and templates, he never shows his face and remains anonymous, though speculation as to his identity abounds. Banksy has become synonymous with engaged graffiti art. He is famous for putting up Early Man Goes to Market, a rock with a drawing of a stick figure pushing a shopping cart, at the British Museum, which the staff discovered only three days later. Banksy has smuggled and displayed his work in the world’s biggest museums, e.g. Tate London and New York’s MoMA. In one of his most acclaimed pieces, he painted nine murals on the West Bank barrier between Israel and Palestinian West Bank.

SYNOPSIS

Banksy, the pope of street-art, exchanges his spray paint can for a camera, but keeps doing what he does best – provoking, amazing and rattling our cages. In Exit Through the Gift shop, he tells a story of the eccentric Thierry Guetta who breaks into street art’s hermetic world. The dubiously talented Thierry achieves huge success by accident, becoming a symbol of commercialization of alternative art. But this is far more than a story of an outsider’s meteoric rise within the art world and Exit offers a reflection on the elusive and furtive nature of art, skillfully balances on the edge of honesty and deception, fiction and documentary, seriousness and irony.

She is romantically connected to Tony Graham, director of the Unicorn Theatre for children in London. Longinotto studied camera and directing at the National Film and Television School in Beaconsfield, England, where she now tutors.

SYNOPSIS

“A girl’s life is cruel...A woman’s life is very cruel,” notes Sampat Pal – like many others she was married as a young girl into a family which beat her often. But unusually, she fought back, leaving her in-laws and eventually becoming famous as a champion for beleaguered women throughout Uttar Pradesh, many of whom find their way to her door. In extraordinary scenes, we watch her launch herself into the centre of family dramas, convinced her mediation is the best path for these vulnerable girls. Her partner Babuji, who has watched Sampat Pal change over the years, is less certain...’

Director: Leon Gast Editor: Doug Abel Cinematographer: Don Lenzer Producer: Adam Schlesinger, Linda Saffire Cast: Floyd Abrams, Gilbert M. Anderson, Joseph Basile, Harry Benson, Humphrey Bogart

SMASH HIS CAMERA USA, 2010; 87 min.

BIOGRAPHY

Leon Gast is known for making such seminal documentaries as Hell’s Angels Forever and the Oscar-winning chronicle of the 1974 landmark fight between Muhammad Ali and George Foreman, When We Were Kings (1996). He is especially noted for presenting his subjects with rare compassion and insight. Gast studied dramatic arts at Columbia University, but dropped out shortly before graduation to work on the television series High Adventure with Lowell Thomas. It provided Gast the opportunity to travel extensively. While attending these away shoots, he observed carefully and began learning how to make non-fiction films. During the 1960s and 1970s, Gast became famous for his still photography and his work appeared in such magazines as Vogue, Esquire, and Harper’s Bazaar

SYNOPSIS

Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis sued him, Marlon Brando broke his jaw and Steve McQueen gave him a look that would have killed, if looks could kill. To the celebrities he pursued, photographer Ron Galella was the beast who threatened beauty. As it turned out, he gave them a strange and lasting beauty they might never have known without him. Inherent in the story of this notorious paparazzo are the complex issues of the right to privacy, freedom of the press and the ever-growing vortex of celebrity worship. He sneaked around and invaded and bribed and held up his camera and shot till he dropped (or someone dropped him). His was the artistry of the sniper. Yet Galella found something essential in his real-life subjects, and he gave it permanence.

Every Christmas Marcin Gajewski and his father cook bigos, the quintessential traditional Polish dish. It takes them four days to prepare and contains no less than 60 ingredients. Gajewski senior, himself a filmmaker, cooks and makes pointed remarks about his son’s shortcomings all the while. His tips on filming the bigos preparation are more like orders: “Are you absolutely sure that this is the best possible shot you can find right now?”. Slowly it becomes clear that the rivalry between the two generations has existed for a long time.Meanwhile the bigos is reduced to an unrecognizable, dark brown mush.

AMARCORD

Producer: Franco Cristaldi

Italy/France, 1973; 123 min.

SYNOPSIS A year in the life of a small Italian coastal town in the nineteen-thirties, as is recalled by a director with a superstar’s access to the resources of the Italian film industry and a piper’s command over our imaginations. Federico Fellini’s film combines the free form and make-believe splendor with the comic, bittersweet feeling for character and narrative we remember from some of his best films of the 1950s. The town in the film is based on Rimini, where Mr. Fellini grew up. Yet there is now something magical, larger-than-life about the town, its citizens and many of the things that happen to them. In 1975 Amarcord received the Oscar for best foreign-language film of 1974.

DARIUSH MEHRJUI

dariuS mehrjui

BIOGRAPHY As an Iranian New Wave cinema icon, Mehrjui is regarded to be one of the intellectual directors, who introduced realism, symbolism, and the sensibilities of art cinema. Dariush Mehrjui was born in Tehran, Iran, in 1939. As an adult, he moved to the United States and entered the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), Department of Cinema. He switched his major to philosophy and graduated from UCLA in 1964. His second featured film, Cow (1969), brought him national and international recognition. In 1971, the film was smuggled out of Iran and submitted to the Venice IFF, where, without programming or subtitles, it became the largest event of that year‘s festival. The film was a turning point in the history of Iranian cinema. In 1973 Mehrjui began directing what was to be his most acclaimed film “The Cycle”. The film won the FIPRESCI Prize at the Berlin IFF in 1978. In 1981, he traveled to Paris and remained there for several years, during which time he made a feature-length semi-documentary for French TV. In film “Hamoun” (1989), Mehrjui sought to depict his generation‘s postrevolutionary turn from politics to mysticism. The ‚90s also found Mehrjui releasing films dealing with women‘s issues. Leila (1996) was all Mehrjui‘s own and the first to receive any sort of wide theatrical release in the West. His last films include Santoori (2007), Tehran, Tehran (2010).

SYNOPSIS

Reza and Leila, an attractive and affluent young couple deeply in love and recently married, discover that Leila is unable to conceive. Invoking tradition, Reza’s mother convinces her daughter-in-law that Reza must, out of necessity, take a second wife to produce an heir. This provocative and eloquent story, from “Iran’s longest running cinematic master” (Village Voice), is a stunning portrayal of the clash between tradition and modern marriage; between manipulation and the power of love.

SYNOPSIS

In this Iranian psychodrama from Dariush Mehrjui, a middle-aged author Mahmoud reflects on his youth. In flashbacks, we return to the bright and colorful Tehran of his childhood in the late 1940s, when a shy 11-year-old boy was completely in awe of his 14-year-old cousin. She was a tomboy, but also a ravishing beauty--and now she’s his muse. With The Pear Tree, Mehrjui offers a haunting, autobiographical account of childhood and a testament to the power of memory. The film is winner of the Silver Hugo at the Chicago International Film Festival.

Luxury Hotel, brings together four “no way-out stories” in the same hotel. Mehdi, who leaves the terrorist organisation and hopes to catch a new break, an Afghan family escaping the Taliban regime, a young gay couple whose only wish is to live their relationship free in istanbul, and an almost trapped young junkie girl... At first, Luxury Hotel represents a temporary station on their way out. However, in time, the hotel becomes limbo where they are stuck in. It seems, whatever they do, they will never get rid of being “the other”. They keep their silence. We rarely hear them speak or actually respond to anything. It looks like they are exhausted in this journey, but obviously they are crying for help.

MELANCHOLIA

Denmark/Sweden/France/Germany, 2011; 130 min

Director: Lars von Trier Screenplay: Lars von Trier Cinematography: Manuel Alberto Claro Editing: Morten Højbjerg, Molly Marlene Stensgaard Cast: Kirsten Dunst, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Kiefer Sutherland, Charlotte Rampling Producer: Bettina Brokemper, Rémi Burah, Madeleine Ekman, Tomas Eskilsson Production company: Zentropa Entertainments, Memfis Film, Film i Väst, Danmarks Radio, arte France Cinéma

BIOGRAPHY

Born in 1956, he belongs to the greatest provocateurs and experimentalists of cinema. He began with visually sophisticated films, full of expressionism and symbolism. Later, he shocked his viewers with the metaphysical melodrama Breaking the Waves, and Idiots exercising the postulates of Dogma 95. Then, he broke the vows of celibacy in the antimusical Dancing in the Dark, and in the cult television series The Kingdom. Finally, he began the ‘American trilogy’ with conventional scenery. He presented his credo in Five Obstructions, proposed an anti-horror in Antichrist, and in 2011, he returned to Cannes with the catastrophic Melancholy. He is a winner of the Golden Palm, and more than 60 other prizes, enfant terrible of festivals, the grey eminence of Danish cinematography, and owner of the company Zentropa.

SYNOPSIS

Earth is evil. No one is going to miss it – says the melancholic Justine to Claire, who surrenders to a different Melancholy – a planet that is closing on to Earth. The ambiguous title in both casus defines a catastrophe. For Justine, melancholy is the tragedy of living among people – the woman can’t adjust to professional or family environment. The latter is the meaning of life for Claire. However, her happy life is also to be ended prematurely by Melancholy. Lars von Trier looks at the catastrophe from a micro and macro perspective. Comparing them, he draws conclusion that the melancholic people are better prepared for the unavoidable end. The defence of this thesis is bolstered by the phenomenal performance of Kirsten Dunst – her depressive Justine is the only person not to go crazy over the impending end of the world.

WHEN YOU ARE STRANGE USA, 2010; 90 min.

BIOGRAPHY

Tom DiCillo is an American director, cinematographer, writer and (sometimes) actor born in Camp Le Jeune, North Carolina, and who studied film at New York University. During his early career he began working with director Jim Jarmusch as a cinematographer on films that include Stranger Than Paradise (1984) and Coffee and Cigarettes (1986). He also worked with Howard Brookner on the documentary Burroughs (1983), which featured the William S. Burroughs. His experience as cinematographer proved invaluable and he was soon writing and directing his own films. Notable directorial projects from Tom include Johnny Suede (1991), Living in Oblivion (1995), The Real Blonde (1997), and When You’re Strange (2009).

SYNOPSIS

When You re Strange, written and directed by the award-winning Tom DiCillo, is the first feature documentary released on The Doors. This 90-minute presentation features never-before-seen rare archival film. When You’re Strange is far from a nostalgic journey and much more than a biopic. Using only original footage shot between 1966 and 1971, DiCillo’s film attempts to disentangle truth from myth, depict the artist and the alcoholic/addict that was Morrison, and showcase the other members of the band: Ray Manzarek, Robby Krieger, and John Densmore, who together channeled the group’s magic. It manages to preserve the mystique but never ceases to unearth new revelations and augment our understanding of who The Doors were and what they became. The film is a rare tribute to music, individuality, and a generation and resonates with an authenticity that speaks to anyone who wants to understand that era and what it means today

Umay has run away from an unhappy marriage in Istanbul and has returned to Berlin because she wants to lead her own life again. She knows that she’s expecting a lot from her parents and siblings but she hopes that their loving relationship will mean more to them than the pressure of social conventions. But before long she realizes that her family cannot simply ignore their deep-seated traditions and the situation could well break them. When the family decides to restore the family’s reputation by returning Cem to his father, Umay once again begs for their help – but ends up breaking with them for good.

MORE THAN A FILM SCHOOL | MORE THAN A FILM STUDIO “From script to screen” – this was the main idea when Andrzej Wajda and Wojciech Marczewski founded the film school in 2001 in Warsaw, Poland. The school offers a unique combination of education, production, artistic supervision, focus on development and contact with the internationally acclaimed masters of cinema. The School is embraced with the honorary patronage of the European Film Academy. Within the school, over 50 documentaries and feature films and more than 200 short films has been produced. Moreover, they have participated and have been awarded at the biggest festivals, including Berlinale, San Sebastian, Karlove Vary, Hot-Docs, IDFA, DOKLeipzig and nomination for Oscar. The most talented directors of the new generation, both Polish and foreign, have often developed and produced their projects in the school. The school has been awarded twice (2008 &2010) with the Prize for the Best Producer of Docs and Shorts at the Krakow Film Festival. Since 2011 we have started the production company – Wajda Studio, which aims to support projects with strong artistic vision. The Studio’s mission is to search for new talents among debutants and to provide them with professional assistance in the most sensitive moment of their film career – at the very beginning of it. We focus on development period and support our directors with artistic assistance of the best Polish and European filmmakers.

BIOGRAPHY

Marcin Sauter was born in 1971 in Bydgoszcz, Poland. A graduate of the documentary course at the Andrzej Wajda Master School of Film Directing, together with his friends from Wajda’s School he established in 2006 the Paladino Film Team. In 2006 the team received a City of Torun Grzegorz Ciechowski Award. Sauter works now for the biggest journals in Poland as a photographer. In 2007, together with the PaladinoTeam, Sauter made a film devoted to Andrzej Wajda Katyń.

SYNOPSIS

‘North from Calabria’ is about a dream place to live, where living is easy and people know each other, tolerate their faults, like to meet to talk and just be together. For one summer, Sauter’s film crew mingles with the inhabitants of a small town to enact an almost Italian comedy. It appears that all they needed was a few classes of Italian cuisine and the art of carpe diem to turn this Polish province into Calabria alike.
