PÖFF – Tallinn Black Nights Daily 2by administrator@nisimasa November 15, 2016
Nisimazine heats up!
Despite the subzero temperatures in Tallinn, Nisimazine’s workshop heats up on Day #2 and focuses on four films from the acknowledged Panorama and the always challenging Forum sections of the 20th Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival.
A slow-paced, but uplifting film that celebrates the little things in life and will leave the less cynical part of the audience with a warm, fuzzy feeling inside.
Jim Jarmusch’s Paterson by Zuzanna Grajzer
A polymorphous essay on the nature of desire crossing into the genres of science fiction, body horror, and erotica, with a strong presence of B-movie traits.
Amat Escalante’s The Untamed by Samuel Antichi
A deeply personal painting of a poem of melancholy and loss that manages to be universally touching, a harrowing tableau of scars that we cannot see and that will probably never disappear.
Rusudan Glurjidze’s House of Others by Diana Dumitrescu
After almost a decade of research and clearing rights, Schütte managed to turn an eclectic selection of archival footage into an enjoyable and well-edited documentary, that is as open and sincere as its intelligent and provocative subject.
Thorsten Schütte’s Eat that question: Frank Zappa in his own words by Miha Veingerl
