LUNANA

Sun 19.09.14:30LUNANA OVdfGotthard

By Pawo Choyning Dorji, with Sherab Dorji, Tshering Dorji, Kelden Lhamo Gurung, Ugyen Norbu Lhendup.

A young teacher in modern Bhutan, Ugyen, shirks his duties while planning to go to Australia to become a singer. As a reprimand, his superiors send him to the most remote school in the world, a glacial Himalayan village called Lunana, to complete his service. He finds himself exiled from his Westernized comforts after an arduous 8 day trek just to get there. There he finds no electricity, no textbooks, not even a blackboard. Though poor, the villagers extend a warm welcome to their new teacher, but he faces the daunting task of teaching the village children without any supplies. He wants to quit and go home, but he begins to learn of the hardship in the lives of the beautiful children he teaches, and begins to be transformed through the amazing spiritual strength of the villagers.

THERE IS NO EVIL

THERE IS NO EVIL

Mon 27.09.20:15THERE IS NO EVIL OVdfGotthard

By Mohammad Rasoulof, with Ehsan Mirhosseini, Shaghayegh Shourian, Kaveh Ahangar.

Heshmat, an exemplary husband and father, gets up very early every day. Where does he go? Pouya cannot imagine killing another man, yet he is told he must do so. Javad doesn’t know that proposing to his beloved won’t be the only surprise on her birthday. Bahram is a physician but is unable to practice medicine. He has decided to explain to his visiting niece the reason for his life as an outcast. The four stories that comprise Sheytan vojud nadarad (THERE IS NO EVIL) offer variations on the crucial themes of moral strength and the death penalty, asking to what extent individual freedom can be expressed under a despotic regime and its seemingly inescapable threats. Mohammad Rasoulof only creates a loose narrative link between these stories, and yet they are all tragically and inexorably connected. In the context of structural oppression, choice seems to be limited to either resisting or surviving. But with each abruptly interrupted story, we are urged to consider how men and women can assert their freedom even in such situations.

PREPARATIONS TO BE TOGETHER FOR AN UNKNOWN PERIOD

PREPARATIONS TO BE TOGETHER FOR AN UNKNOWN PERIOD

By Lili Horvát, with Natasa Stork, Viktor Bodó, Benett Vilmányi, Zsolt Nagy

40-year-old Ma'rta has found the love of her life. She met the mysterious Ja'nos at a medical congress in New Jersey and arranged to meet him again in Budapest. Never before has she felt such strong feelings for someone. After almost 20 years, she now returns to her homeland in Hungary, leaving her brilliant career as a neurosurgeon and her previous life in the USA behind with the hope of a new, more fulfilling existence. As agreed with Ja'nos, Ma'rta waits on the Freedom Bridge – in vain. Irritated and disappointed, she sets off in search of the man of her dreams, but when she finds him, he claims to have never seen her before. At a blow, her new life shatters from one moment to the next, and Ma'rta ends up traversing a fine line between love and madness. Packed with feeling and devotion, director Lili Horva't’s virtuosic imagery plunges us deep into the mystery of love and raises the question of what love actually is.

By Alejandro Telémaco Tarraf, with Ricardo Fidel Tolaba, Lucía Bautista, Maykol Tolaba, Rubén Tolaba.

The hamlet of Condor lies in the Puna grasslands of the northern highlands of Argentina, at some four thousand metres above sea level, close to the border with Bolivia. Here, a lama herder lives with his family. He and his son sell lama meat and wool in the closest city, which is still a long trip on foot and by bus. When the herd is threatened by a puma, the herder goes in search of the predator. According to local custom, he has to make an offering to the beast. An honest, respectful portrait of a culture that is inextricably and organically bound to nature. The story is told in breathtaking landscapes and close-ups, often using natural light.
