JIMMY’S HALL by Ken Loach

About the Director: Ken Loach is an English film and television director. After studying law at St. Peter’s College, Oxford, he branched out into the theater. He is known for his naturalistic, social realist directing style and for his socialism, which are evident in his film treatment of social issues such as homelessness (Cathy Come Home) and labour rights (Riff-Raff and The Navigators).

Synopsis: 1932. Jimmy Gralton is back home in the Irish countryside after ten years of forced exile in the USA. His widowed mother Alice is happy, Jimmy’s friends are happy, all the young people who enjoy dancing and singing are happy. Which is not the case of Father Sheridan, the local priest, nor of the village squire, nor of Dennis O’Keefe, the chief of the fascists. The reason is simple: Jimmy is a socialist activist. So when the “intruder� reopens the village hall, thus enabling the villagers to gather to sing, dance, paint, study or box, they take a dim view of the whole thing. People who think and unite are difficult to manipulate, aren’t they? From that moment on they will use every means possible to get rid of Jimmy and his “dangerous� hall.

O redatelju: Ken Loach je britanski filmski i televizijski redatelj. Nakon studija prava na St. Peter’s College u Oxfordu, poÄ?inje se baviti kazaliÅ¡tem. Poznat je po svom naturalistiÄ?kom, socrealistiÄ?kom stilu režiranja i socijalnoj orijentaciji koja je vidljiva u njegovim filmovima koji se bave druÅ¡tvenim pitanjima poput beskućniÅ¡tva (Cathy Come Home) i radniÄ?kim pravima (Riff-Raff, The Navigators).

Sadržaj: Godina je 1932. Jimmy Gralton se vratio kući u Irsku nakon deset godina prisilnog egzila u SAD-u. Njegova je udovica majka Alice sretna, Jimmyjevi prijatelji su sretni, svi mladi ljudi koji uživaju u plesu i pjesmu su sretni. MeÄ‘utim, sretni nisu lokalni svećenik otac Sheridan, ni lokalni plemić, niti Dannis O’Keefe, Å¡ef faÅ¡istiÄ?ke skupine. Razlog je jednostavana: Jimmy je socijalistiÄ?ki aktivist. Kada „uljez“ otvori seosku dvoranu omogućujući mjeÅ¡tanima okupljanje radi pjesme, plesa, slikanja, uÄ?enja ili boksanja, nezadovoljni mraÄ?no gledaju na cijeli dogaÄ‘aj. TeÅ¡ko je manipulirati osobama koje misle i koje su ujedinjene, zar ne? Od tog trenutka koristit će se svim sredstvima da se rijeÅ¡e Jimmyja i njegove „opasne“ dvorane.

CLOUDS OF SILS MARIA by Olivier Assayas

About the Director: Olivier Assayas is a French film director, screenwriter and film critic. Assayas started his career in the industry by helping his father who was director and screenwriter. He ghostwrote episodes for TV shows his father was working on when his health failed. He made his debut in 1986, after directing some short films and writing for the influential film magazine Cahiers du cinéma. Assayas’s film Cold Water was screened in the Un Certain Regard section at the 1994 Cannes Film Festival. His biggest hit to date has been Irma Vep, starring Hong Kong star Maggie Cheung, which manages to be a tribute both to French director Louis Feuillade and to Hong Kong cinema.

Synopsis: At the peak of her international career, Maria Enders is asked to perform in a revival of the play that made her famous twenty years ago. But back then she played the role of Sigrid, an alluring young girl who disarms and eventually drives her boss Helena to suicide. Now she is being asked to step into the other role, that of the older Helena. She departs with her assistant to rehearse in Sils Maria; a remote region of the Alps. A young Hollywood starlet with a penchant for scandal is to take on the role of Sigrid, and Maria finds herself on the other side of the mirror, face to face with an ambiguously charming woman who is, in essence, an unsettling reflection of herself.

O redatelju: Olivier Assayas je francuski filmski redatelj, scenarist i filmski kritiÄ?ar. Assayas je zapoÄ?eo karijeru pomažući ocu koji je radio kao redatelj i scenarist. Pisao je epizode za televizijske serije na kojima je radio njegov otac. Samostalnu karijeru zapoÄ?inje 1986 godine, nakon režije nekoliko kratkih filmova i pisanja za utjecajni filmski Ä?asopis Cahiers du cinéma. Njegov film Cold Water prikazan je na Un Certain Regard sekciji na Filmskom festivalu u Cannesu 1994 godine. Njegov najveći hit je film Irma Vep u kojem glavnu ulogu igra Maggie Cheung, a koji predstavlja tribute francuskom redatelju Louisu Feuilladeu i kinematografiji Hong Konga.

Sadržaj: Na vrhu svoje međunarodne karijere, Maria Enders dobiva poziv da igra ulogu u drami koja ju je proslavila dvadeset godina ranije. Ali tada je igrala ulogu Sigrid, primamljive mlade djevojke koja razoruža i dovede šeficu Helenu do samoubojstva. Sada ju traže da igra ulogu starije Helene. Maria putuje u Sils Mariu, udaljenu regiju u Alpama, u pratnji svoje asistentice da zajedno vježbaju scenarij. Mlada holivudska zvijezda sklona skandalima preuzima ulogu Sigrid, a Maria se nađe na drugoj strani zrcala, licem u lice s dvosmisleno šarmantnom ženom koja predstavlja uznemirujući odraz nekadašnje Marie.
