On the second day of the Star Film Fest program, August 27, the film dramaturgy workshops and the film criticism workshop of the award-winning film critic Iva Rosandić began in the premises of the Sisak Creative Industry Center.
We continued the day with four competitive screenings showing 18 films, and in many films the Croatian animated film Egg by Ana Despot, was shown.
The Egg is an animated film about a circle of life and love shared by two living beings, an old turtle and an egg of unknown origin. What we have been taking care of unconditionally for years is born only when we are no more, and the film itself was created as a final work at the undergraduate study of Animated Film and New Media at the Academy of Fine Arts in Zagreb.
Movies by regional authors were also screened. The feature films I’m Not Here by Sara Radusinović, the film Neither in Heaven nor on Earth by Boris Simić and the film Everything is as it should be by Nikola Stojanović were shown.
The film Everything is as it should be shows the relationship between mother and daughter and mother and her ex-husband. The plot itself is based on the mother’s birthday and her desire to fill the day with beautiful moments with her daughter, and the harsh realism of life in the Balkans by mixing new and old emotions in a stunted environment starts the plot. The film was made in the third year of the Faculty of Dramatic Arts in Belgrade. Aleksandar Bartol, on the film Everything as it should be, worked as a stand camera, saying that while working on the film, everything was as it should be! The shooting of the film, he says, was the most beautiful experience ever with a good atmosphere and even better new acquaintances.
Due to the unpredictable weather forecast, the Acoustic jam session was canceled, but we continued in the afternoon in the outdoor area of Theater 21.
We tested our film knowledge with the film quiz – the first Sisak pub quiz, and we ended the evening with an exhibition of gifs Gif For Fuse from Karlovac platform F12 and dance steps with melodies of swing, gypsy and all Brazilian sounds, in other words with the sounds of Zagreb band Gungula. Gungula makes up a few girls and boys who love jazz music more than the usual noise of everyday life and who are willing to sacrifice their time and silence to play it.
Despite the announced rain, the program does not end there either! Tomorrow, another all-day program directed by Star Film Fest awaits you at the Center for Creative Industry Sisak. You can follow all the information about the program change on our official Facebook page.
