Film: “Under the Sun”

 

large_rMA8cMIzJBdRGXXv36jn5I31CEg

CinemaSavannah presents

Under the Sun (Russia, 2015)
5 p.m. and 8 p.m.
tickets $8

Under the Sun is a  documentary like no other. It takes viewers inside the unimaginable reality of the most isolated and most oppressive totalitarian regime on Earth, a comprehensive  statewide mental prison if there ever was one. Commissioned to produce a pro-regime propaganda, Russian director Vitaly Mansky, fending off continuous interferences by the ever-present minders, manages to document more than the paranoid regime has bargained for. Shot on location in Pyongyang, the North Korean capital, the film follows Zin-mi, an eight-year-old girl and her parents in the year that she prepares to join the Korean Children’s Union on the ‘Day Of The Shining Star’ (Kim Jong-Il’s birthday). As the family receives instruction on how to be the ideal patriots, Mansky’s watchful camera captures details his handlers might prefer left unseen, from comrades struggling to stay awake during an official event to Zin-mi’s tears at a particularly grueling dance lesson, all the while showing the entire proceedings as pathetically  scripted sham. Winner of this year’s Hong Kong International Film Festival.

106 minutes.
In Korean, with English subtitles.

“It’s a movie self-consciously framed around its own making: specifically the creation of a Korean propaganda spectacle. Mansky uses the limitations imposed on him by the government to create a kind of commentary on the genre.” —The Seattle Times

There’s journalistic filmmaking, and then there’s what Vitaly Mansky does in Under The Sun: a feat of truth-telling so daring that watching it makes you feel like a co-conspirator. ”  —The Toronto Star

There’s a terrible wonder in this rare glimpse inside a country that has tried to empty itself of all thought, all commerce and all civil society ­ of pretty much everything except an especially lame version of hero worship and despotism.”  Salon.com

“What’s more unexpected is just how much Russian documentary filmmaker Vitaly Mansky is able to reveal despite, and often because of, the stringent restrictions imposed upon him.” —Screen International

“The vision of such severe regimentation is shocking; Zin-mi’s tears of shame and her sharply limited range of knowledge and inhibited behavior embody an outrage.” —The New Yorker

“We should have our own movies like The Innocents. But it’s good that we can at least import them.” —San Francisco Chronicle

“A complex social allegory, delivered in a film of masterful restraint and great compassion.” —Salon.com.

“Shot in artful, quiet light (many of the frames look like elegant paintings), The Innocents is beautifully performed by its nearly all-female cast; each nun, even those unnamed, is given her own personality and story.” —The Seattle Times

Ingrid Bergman film tribute: “The Four Companions”

ingrid_portfolio

The Psychotronic Film Society and Connect Savannah present a 101st Birthday Tribute to INGRID BERGMAN – The Forgotten B&W Drama THE FOUR COMPANIONS (1938, Germany) 

One screening: 7 p.m.
Cost: $10 (includes your choice of Candy or Snack)  

Running Time: 96 minutes
Language: In spoken German with English Subtitles

The PFS of SAV is putting on a very special event at Muse to celebrate the 101st Anniversary of the birth of iconic, Oscar-winning Swedish actress INGRID BERGMAN.

We’ll offer an extremely rare, one-show-only screening of one of Bergman’s most obscure, yet enjoyable feature films: the 1938 German-made drama DIE VIER GESELLEN aka THE FOUR COMPANIONS.

Based on a well-received stage play of the time, and directed by the talented-yet-infamous CARL FROELICH (who is best known for later serving as one of the main filmmakers responsible for the Nazi propaganda machine), this picture concerns four graduates of an industrial design school who team up to form a small business, leading the main graduate to focus all her attention on the new company, rather than marry her dashing former instructor.

It has never been released theatrically in the USA, and likewise has never been made available on any home video format here in the states. As a result, it is rather unknown to even most devoted fans of Bergman’s work – many of whom have no idea she ever made a film in which she spoke fluent German!

This is, in fact, the only film in which Bergman speaks German, as do the rest of the cast. It was made primarily as a vehicle to launch her as a movie star in that country, but within a few months, WWII was raging.

Bergman quickly relocated to the USA just a year after THE FOUR COMPANIONS was made, and this film – despite being an extremely well-made and entertaining motion picture – was essentially forgotten.

The PFS has finally obtained a beautiful, fully restored and uncut print of the film, and will show it in the original German (with English subtitles, of course). It is likely the only chance anyone in this area will ever have to see this motion picture on the big screen as the filmmakers intended.

One-show-only, at 7 p.m. Your ticket price includes one Candy or Snack item of your choice. Fresh organic popcorn and a wide variety of soft drinks and bottled water will also be available at low prices.

“Savannah Sipping Society” by Jones, Hope & Wooten

SSS

Savannah’s premier theatre ensemble, The Collective Face presents

SAVANNAH SIPPING SOCIETY by Jones, Hope & Wooten

Join us for the Savanannah premiere of this delightful, laugh-a-minute comedy, set in our own Savannah, GA! Four unique Southern women, all needing to escape the sameness of their day-to-day routines, are drawn together by Fate—and an impromptu happy hour—and decide it’s high time to reclaim the enthusiasm for life they’ve lost through the years. Randa, a perfectionist and workaholic, is struggling to cope with a surprise career derailment that, unfortunately, reveals that she has no life and no idea how to get one. Dot, still reeling from her husband’s recent demise and the loss of their plans for an idyllic retirement, faces the unsettling prospect of starting a new life from scratch—and all alone. Earthy and boisterous Marlafaye, a good ol’ Texas gal, has blasted into Savannah in the wake of losing her straying husband to a twenty-three-year-old dental hygienist. The strength of her desire to establish a new life is equaled only by her desire to wreak a righteous revenge on her ex. Also new to town, Jinx, a lively ball of fire, offers her services as a much-needed life coach for these women. However, blinded by her determination and efforts to get their lives on track, she over-looks the fact that she’s the one most in need of sage advice. Over the course of six months, filled with laughter, hilarious misadventures, and the occasional liquid refreshment, these middle-aged women successfully bond and find the confidence to jumpstart their new lives. Together, they discover lasting friendships and a renewed determination to live in the moment—and most importantly, realize it’s never too late to make new old friends. So raise your glass to these strong Southern women and their fierce embrace of life and say “Cheers!” to this joyful and surprisingly touching Jones, Hope, Wooten comedy!
