Tri filma iz Srbije nagrađena na festivalu u Los Anđelesu

Filmovi Maje Novaković, Igora Ćorića i Ivane Todorović nagrađeni su na upravo završenom 15. Festivalu filmova jugoistočne Evrope (SEE Film Festival) u Los Anđelesu, održanom onlajn.

Kako prenosi SEEBIZ, dokumentarac Maje Novaković "A sad se spušta veče" proglašen je najboljim u kategoriji kratkog dokumentarnog filma.

Njen film prikazuje život dve bake koje žive izolovano u brdima istočne Bosne. Priroda je entitet sa kojim bake "pričaju", osluškuju ga i poštuju. Film ističe nematerijalnu kulturnu baštinu kroz prikaz bajalica i rituala protiv vremenskih nepogoda, grada i oluje, navodi se u opisu ostvarenja.

Film "Prolaz" Igora Ćorića, nagrađen kao najbolji u selekciji kratkometražnog animiranog ostvarenja, nastao je pod okriljem studija "Artrake", a sinopsis u jednoj rečenici glasi: "Mali dečak se suprostavlja neprijatelju totemom koji je sam sagradio od ostataka svog plemena".

U kategoriji kratkog igranog filma specijano priznanje osvojila je Ivana Todorović za film "Kada sam kod kuće".

Film govori o Mariji, koja se nakon nekoliko godina života u inostranstvu vraća u porodični dom da bi se suočila sa traumom iz detinjstva.

The Hagia Sophia

The Mystical Light of the Great Church and its Architectural Dress

by Charalambos P. Stathakis

Dear reader, as you run like the rest of us along the dizzy main road, stop, stay aside for a while. Let the others be dizzy, and take the secret underground trail, which will lead you through the dewdrops of the leaves, the crystal smile of the sun, the city’s underground galler- ies, your knowledge, and your feelings, to the doorstep of the Hagia Sophia. Because all dew- drops, all sunrays, and all beauty lead there. That is what you will be told by my friend, the author, whom I am fond of and whom I send you to, Charalambos Stathakis: the doctor, the warm and humane researcher, the scientist devoted to his work and his patients, who has given a series of scientific papers, who, nevertheless, retains a nest of beauty untouched in his heart, which makes him outstanding—even though he is not a specialist in architecture, nor a historian, nor a theologian, nor a Byzantinist—it makes him stand out in all these together and in entirety.
