Step forward. To the results of the III Moscow Jewish Film Festival Automatic translate
MOSCOW. The results of the III Moscow Jewish Film Festival are summed up.
A thin world is better than a good quarrel. A hand extended for a handshake and a step towards is more reasonable than a feud. Differences in worldview, a different faith, different political views are arguments in favor of dialogue, but not antagonism. Holding the Jewish Film Festival is moving forward. To acquaintance with a different culture, understanding, overcoming errors, humanity. FROM aggression and confrontation.
At the first EC, held in 2015, about 20 films were shown, interesting meetings and discussions took place. In the third season, five dozen paintings were already selected for the competition, and the educational program has been preserved. Full halls, the active participation of guests and participants of the festival in its events - a clear confirmation of the relevance and readiness for dialogue.
The screening took place at several metropolitan venues: in the Jewish Museum, the Central House of Artists, the GUM cinema and others. Films of various formats and genres were offered to the attention of the audience and the jury under the direction of director Pavel Lungin: dramas, biopic, thriller, melodrama, horror, documentaries.
The names of the winners in different categories were announced on the closing day. “Yesterday’s Flowering” (Die Blumen von gestern) Chris Kraus (Chris Kraus), whose heroes are exploring the tragedy of the Holocaust, became the best feature film full-length. The role of the German historian was played by actor Lars Eidinger, whose participation in the long-suffering "Matilda" by Alexei Uchitel was one of the reasons for the scandal. The animated picture “In Other Words” by the director and artist Tal Kantor about the drama of the long-awaited meeting of close people received the main award in the category of small format game tapes. Best Documentary Feature - Who’s Gonna Love Me Now? ("Who will love me now?") Tomer and Barak Heymann. Unconventional orientation and the presence of a deadly virus in the blood is not a reason for turning a person into an outcast, deprived of the support of family and society.
In the short documentary category, Joe’s Violin was won by Kahane Cooperman, who was nominated for an Oscar this year in the corresponding nomination. The producer, Rafaela Neuhausen, is the daughter of the Queen of Cabaret, who had emigrated from the USSR and a famous writer. The film is about the friendship of the survivor of the Holocaust, 91-year-old Joseph Feingold and the 12-year-old child prodigy from the Bronx Brianna. The film is about a priceless gift and spiritual generosity that can change your whole life, and music that supports you in the most difficult period.
The special prize is in the Ukrainian film “Song of Songs” directed by Eva Neumann, the script of which is written based on the works of Sholom Aleichem.
