Film: “Burning Bush,” part ONE

SOUTHERN U.S. PREMIERE!

CinemaSavannah presents

Burning Bush, PART ONE (Czech Republic, 2013)
5 p.m. and 8 p.m.
tickets $8

*Part ONE is screened Sat., Aug. 2 at 5 and 8 p.m., tickets $8
*Part TWO is screened Sun., Aug. 3 at 5 and 8 p.m., tickets $5

For the first time ever, CinemaSavannah will screen a film in two parts and in two days: Agnieszka Holland’s (In Darkness, Europa Europa) extraordinary fictionalized docudrama, Burning Bush. It’s Prague, January 1969. Czech student Jan Palach sets himself on fire to protest the brutal Soviet military crackdown following the period of political openness known as Prague Spring. Polish director Agnieszka Holland, who was a student at the FAMU film school in Prague during this tumultuous period and then imprisoned for her support of the opposition, vividly recreates the political and cultural zeitgeist of Czechoslovakia in the late ’60s. What could have been a standard docudrama, becomes, in the hands of this superb filmmaker, a stirring, complex account of the tension that swirled around these events and set the stage for the defeat of Communism twenty years later. As a period political thriller, Burning Bush has been compared to such films as The Lives of Others and Argo. Winner of Hong Kong, Monte Carlo,  and New York Film Festivals as well as Audience Award as Best Narrative Feature at the Palm Springs International Festival.

In Czech with English subtitles.

Total 231 minutes.

Ms. Holland, working from a script by Stepan Hulik, a Czech screenwriter born in 1984, turns a sprawling story into a tight and suspenseful ethical thriller.
[A] thoughtful, gripping, crisply acted new film.
” —The New York Times

Elegantly scripted with an edge of biting gallows humor by Stepan Hulik, Burning Bush blends an intimate domestic drama with a thrilling Cold War procedural.” —NPR

“Burning Bush offers a precious insight into how history can, and perhaps should, be narrated on screen, whether that screen be small or big.” —IndieWire

Expertly helmed by Agnieszka Holland,  [Burning Bush] is a compelling slice of history in which fear can trump idealism and the truth doesn’t always lead to justice. It’s a taut, nuanced work that should easily connect at a human level.“—Variety

48 hour Film Festival Competition Screenings

Dream to Screen. Make a short film in 48 hours, then — just a few days later — attend the Premiere on the big screen!

The 48 Hour Film Project’s mission is to advance filmmaking and promote filmmakers. Through its festival/competition, the Project encourages filmmakers and would-be filmmakers to get out there and make movies. The tight deadline of 48 hours puts the focus squarely on the filmmakers—emphasizing creativity and teamwork skills. While the time limit places an unusual restriction on the filmmakers, it is also liberating by putting an emphasis on “doing” instead of “talking.”The 48 Hour Film Project is a wild and sleepless weekend in which you and a team make a movie—write, shoot, edit and score it—in just 48 hours. On Friday night, you get a character, a prop, a line of dialogue and a genre. 48 hours later, you submit your finished film.

Savannah’s festival competitors screen Aug. 8, 9 and 10. Time TBD.
