A single day: from the tender break of dawn to the darkest night. One out of many days to come? Quite possibly the very last. A long farewell, an ultimate goodbye to a life we have grown to hold dear. Leading to a head-on dive into a new reality, into a new state of being.

Ioan Gavriel & Anja Franziska Plaschg

Ioan Gavriel was born in Bern in 1993 as the son of a Romanian violinist and a Swiss architect. He spent his childhood and youth in Vienna, Austria. Through his own animated films and animated work, he discovered his passion for film early on. At the age of 15 he shot the first film-funded short film with professional actors. Ioan works successfully as a camera technician and B-cameraman in various Austrian and international productions, with directors like Michael Haneke, Ridley Scott, Terrence Malick, Stefan Ruzowitzky, Josef Hader, Ulrich Seidl, David Schalko or Jessica Hausner. In addition to his work in the camera department, he directs various commercials and music videos for clients such as: UNHCR, Audi, McDonalds or currently for the singer Soap & Skin (O.S.T Netflix “Dark”).

Anja Franziska Plaschg grew up in a small village called Poppendorf (near Gnas) in south east Styria, where her parents have a farm. She has played piano since she was six. At the age of 14 she began violin studies and developed an interest in electronic music. She attended the Graz Polytechnic for Graphic Design, but dropped out at 16 and moved to Vienna shortly afterwards.

Osuđen na zatvor, on upoznaje Pastuva, starijeg i poštovanog čoveka u kome će Jaime naći zaštitu, otkrivajući duboku želju za nežnošću i priznavanjem. Iza rešetaka Jaime će postati Princ i naučiće od Pastuva ljubav i poverenje. Oni će imati blisku vezu „crne ljubavi“, kako se to u zatvoru zove, dok se on suočava sa nasilnom borbom za moć unutar zatvora.

France, 1770. Marianne, a painter, is commissioned to do the wedding portrait of Héloïse, a young woman who has just left the convent. Héloïse is a reluctant bride to be and Marianne must paint her without her knowing. She observes her by day, to paint her secretly.

Céline Sciamma

Céline Sciamma, a greedy film-lover, studied scriptwriting with an eagerness to meet people and talk about her generation. During her studies she built long-lasting friendships with Rebecca Zlotowski and Marie Amachoukeli (director of Party Girl). She shot her first feature film (Water Lilies) without any prior experience of making a first short film. After this film everything went very fast. Céline Sciamma is probably one of the best French film directors to have appeared in recent years. Although she looks like a girl just out of high school she is very mature and organized. For her fist three films she dived into youth (Water Lilies, Tomboy, Girlhood), always with a great deal of freshness and lightness. In her first film, Water Lilies, she examined the moment when desire materializes in a young girl’s mind. Tomboy, her second film is a splendid chronicle, free of any counterfeiting, of a young girl who pretends she is a boy. Her last film, Girlhood, which was presented at the opening of the Quinzaine des réalisateurs in Cannes, follows the path that brings together a group of “bad girls”.

France, 2018

Frig, a film in three parts (Love, Shit and Sperm) is an experimental drama beginning with the end of a love affair. Opening with a personal poem and accompanied by fragmented images, the film plunges into Sade’s universe in “120 Days of Sodom”. Expressed through dance, poetry and drama, the film is an illustration of a violent rite of passage, voluntary or not, which leads us on the path of the shaman, a path of liberation.

A young gay boy, from his birth to his teenage years, in which he experiments his sexuality and his own boundaries, to the day he finally meets his father.

He is the child of a prostitute mother whom we meet briefly, and an absent father. As an adolescent, JC experiments with his sexuality and pushes the very limits of his identity until he finally meets the father he has fantasised about all his life. Moving between violent and dream- like fantasy worlds, JC’s quest is to carve out his own path, meeting and slaying the demons of his past along the way.

Francuska, 2014.

Maël pokušava da se suoči sa samoubistvom svog partnera Adama, kao i sa njihovom burnom prošlosti. Patricia, takođe jedna od Adamovih partnera, sebe stavlja u opasnost pokušavajući da izbavi Maela iz žalosti. Jedan duboki uzdah predstavlja istraživanje Maelove žalosti. Film uključuje performans, poeziju i dijalog u cilju da prenese eksploziju misli, osećanja, razmišljanja i snova. Tišina i repeticija ovde igraju jednaku ulogu. Shvatamo performans u realnom vremenu i tako možemo da iskusimo delo kao što bismo to uradili u prostoru. Film u svojoj naraciji ne ide pravolinijskom putanjom i moli publiku da ostane otvorena ka drugačijoj vrsti iskustva. Ide između tradicionalnog pripovedanja i eksperimentalnog filmskog stila.

France, 2014

Maël tries hard to cope with his partner Adam’s suicide as well as their troubled past together. Patricia, also one of Adam’s lovers, gets herself into danger in her attempt to help Maël in his grief. One Deep Breath is an exploration of Maels grief. The film draws on performance art, poetry and dialogue in order to transmit an explosion of thoughts, feelings, reflections and dreams .  Silence & repetition equally play an important role in the work. We regard the performance art in real time and thus experience the work as we would in a performatif space. The film is not linear in its narrative and begs the audience to remain open to a different kind of experience. It rocks between traditional story telling  and a more experimental film style.

Vijetnam, 2018.

Neočekivana veza se stvara između podzemnog uterivača dugova i cai luong pevača vijetnamske opere, tokom devedesetih godina u gradu Saigon. Radnja se dešava osamdesetih godina prošlog veka u gradu Saigon, pre nego što su SAD povukle embarko na Vijetnam 1994. Song Lang opisuje podzemlje čiji jedini izvor svetlosti dolazi od prelepe produkcije lokalne operske grupe. Privlačni uterivač dugova ulazi u neverovatno prijateljstvo sa harizmatičnim glavnim glumcem. Njihovo prijateljstvo, na obostrano iznenađenje, budi osećanja u njima. „Song Lang“ je udarački intrument koji se koristio da kontroliše ritam u vijetnamskoj folk operi. Na vijetnamskom jeziku, ta reč takođe znači „dva muškarca“. To je savršeni homonim za skoro pa savršen film.

Vietnam, 2018

An unlikely bond forms between an underground debt collector and a cai luong “Vietnamese opera” performer against the backdrop of Saigon in the 90s. Set in 1980s Saigon, well before the U.S. embargo on Vietnam was lifted in 1994, SONG LANG depicts a gritty underworld whose only source of brightness comes from the gorgeous stage productions of a local opera troupe. A hunky, brooding debt collector forms an unlikely friendship with the charismatic lead actor of the struggling company, and their friendship, to their surprise, awakens feelings in both men. “Song Lang” is a percussion instrument used to control tempo and phrasing in Vietnamese modern folk opera. In the Vietnamese language, it also means “two men.” It is the perfect homonym for a nearly perfect film.

Leon Le

Writer/Director/Actor Leon Le was born in Vietnam and grew up there until the age of 13 when he moved with his family to Southern California.

Documentary film

Director: Mark Saxenmeyer

USA, 2018

Part documentary classic “Paris is Burning,” part current FX hit drama “Pose,” part reality show phenom “RuPaul’s Drag Race” and part traditional beauty pageant like Miss America, “The Queens” explores the transgender subculture of competitive female impersonation. Along the way, this feature-length documentary delves into the rich history of Chicago’s iconic female illusion show lounge, The Baton (entering its 50th year in 2019 at the same location), and the club’s legendary offspring, the Miss Continental beauty pageant (an annual competition that has drawn transgender contestants from around the globe since 1980). The entertainers immersed in this fascinating close-knit community share the highs and lows of their lives as they compete for the coveted crown.
