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.

A conversation with Fr. Stamatis Skliris and Fr. Marko Rupnik on contemporary Christian art

In these timely conversations led by Fr. Radovan Bigovic, many issues are introduced that enable the contemporary reader to deepen and expand his or her understanding of the role of art in the life of the Church. Here we find answers to questions on the crisis of contemporary ecclesiastical art in West and East; the impact of Impressionism, Expressionism, Cubism, Surrealism and Abstract painting on contemporary ecclesiastical painting; and a consideration of the main distrinction between iconography and secular painting. The dialogue, while resolving some doubts about the difference between iconography, religious painting, and painting in general, reconciles the requirement to obey inconographic canons with the freedom essential to artistic creativity, demonstrating that obedience to the canons is not a threat to the vitatlity of iconography. Both artists illumine the role of prayer and ascetisicm in the art of iconography. They also mention curcial differences between iconography in the Orthodox Church and in Roman Catholicism. How important thse distinctions are when exploring the relationship between contemporary theology and art! In a time when postmodern "metaphysics' revitalizes every concept, these masters still believe that, to some extent, Post-Modernism adds to the revitatiztion of Christian art, stimulating questions about "artistic inspiration" and the essential asethetic categories of Christian painting. Their exceptionally wide, yet nonetheless deep, expertise assists their not-so-everday connections between theology, ar, and modern issues concerning society: "society" taken in its broader meaning as "civilization." Finally, the entire artistic project of Stamatis and Rupnik has important ecumenical implications that aswer a genuine longing for unity in the Christian word.
