Film „Dara iz Jasenovca“ srpski kandidat za nagradu „Oskar“

Film „Dara iz Jasenovca“ reditelja Predraga Antonijevića predstavljaće Srbiju u trci za 93. nagradu Američke akademiјe filmske umetnosti i nauke – Oskar, u kategoriјi za naјbolji međunarodni film (International Feature Film Award), saopštio je danas Filmski centar Srbije.

Film je odabrala komisija u sastavu Dobrivoje Tanasijević – Dan Tana (član Američke akademije filmske umetnosti i nauke, član komisije po predlogu FCS-a) Miroslav Lekić (ispred Udruženja filmskih umetnika Srbije), dr Ivana Kronja i Tanja Bošković (po predlogu AFUN-a), Sandra Perović (ispred Upravnog odbora FCS-a), Dara Džokić (ispred Udruženja filmskih glumaca Srbije) i Dejan Lutkić (po predlogu FCS-a).

„Komisija izražava veliko zadovoljstvo, jer smo ove godine imali izuzetno kvalitetnu, žanrovski raznoliku filmsku ponudu.  Izabrani film „Dara iz Jasenovca“ je emotivno snažna drama koja se bavi istorijskom traumom nudeći pre svega poštovanje prema žrtvama. Tema je izuzetno značajna, bolna i traumatična, pri čemu je film izbegao zamku da se ponovo probude aveti prošlosti jer nije stavljen u politički diskurs. Tragične okolnosti nisu predočene u kontekstu opšteg zločina, već je tragedija personalizovana. Zločin ima svoje ime i prezime, tako da se film ne bavi brojkama i opštim mestima, već pojedinačnim sudbinama, stvarajući na taj način veoma sugestivnu sliku tragedije koja se dogodila. Bila je potrebna velika hrabrost celokupne autorske ekipe da se prihvati tako delikatne teme“, navedeno je u obrazloženju odluke komisije.

Članovi komisije ističu visok umetnički kvalitet filma, vrsnu režiju, britak scenario, fotografiju koja doprinosi vizuelnoj poetici filma, muziku, scenografiju i kostim, kao i ekspresivnu glumu postignutu u ovom „ansambl filmu“ (naročito kada je reč o ženskim likovima). Kroz sudbinu čitavih porodica, prikazana je snaga volje malog čoveka, kao i ogromna ljubav i čovečnost u okolnostima koje su teško zamislive.

Man and the God-Man

by Archimandrite Justin Popovich

"Father Justin Popovich, pan-orthodox witness to the God-revealed and Christ-given Eternal Truth, whose testimony can be even seen within this collection of his articles - that "the mystery of Truth is not in material things, not in ideas, not in symbols, but in Personhood, namely the Theanthropic Person of the Lord Christ, Who said: I am the Truth (John 14:6), Truth perfect, never diminished, always one and the same in its complete fullness - yesterday, today, and forever (Heb.13:8)."

The treasure to be found in this anthology of neopatristic syntheses consists of: "Perfect God and perfect man" - Nativity Epistle, where Fr Justin boldly exclaim that "man is only a true man when he is completely united with God, only and solely in God is man a man, true man, perfect man, a man in whom all the fullness of Godhead lives."; "The God-man" - The foundation of the Truth of Orthodoxy - Ava Justinian language of love in Christ-centered reflections of Truth; "The Supreme Value and Infallible Criterion"- contemporary philosophical reflections on visible and invisible realities; "Sentenced to Immortality" - a homily on the Resurrection or Our Lord Jesus Christ; "Humanistic and Theanthropic Culture"-criticism of European anti-Christian culture; "Humanistic and Theanthropic Education" - indicative pondering of consequences of education without God.. ; "The Theory of Knowledge of Saint Isaac the Syrian" - Faith, prayer, love, humility, grace and freedom, the purification of the intellect, mystery of knowledge; "A Deer in a Lost Paradise" - Ava's renowned poetic essay, a confession, and deepest longing for all-sweetest Jesus...
