Day 11: guide for the day!

It is sunday – the very last of this year’s PIX. No time for laying in bed all day. There are a bunch of movies and events on the programme of today. Magical realism, silence film koncert, a neo-western and so much more!

 

IN TOWN: Oblivion Verses  and Alireza Khatami

Magic realism, absurdity and poetic drama melts together in Alizera Khatamis debut feature about an old attendant working in a small morgue, which makes it his business to provide a proper funeral for an unknown, abandoned woman.

Watch the film and meet the director today at 15.00 at Empire. Read more HERE.

 

MUSIC: Silent film-koncert

French horn, harp and accordion. 20 children are – since Friday and as we speak – playing, composing and rehearsing on film scores for four different Chaplin-classics. The project culminates in a concert at Pumpehuset today at 11.30. Come by!

GIANT: I Kill Giants

Oscar winner Anders Walter is ready with his debut feature from USA, a striking fantasy-thriller about a young girl who fights both giants and inner daemons.

EXTRA: Extra screenings

’A Ghost Story, ’Tom of Finland, ’Blade of the Immortal’ and more. Check out the extra screenings of some of this years most popular titles here.

 

PSYCH: Let the corpses tan

Bullets rush like thunder in Bruno Forzani and Héléne Cattets ecstatic neo-western, which at the same time is both minimalistic and extremely complicated. The films visual effects are a sight for sore eyes and the soundscape brings you back to the golden western-days of Ennio Morricone.

The film screens at 20.00 in Empire. Read more HERE.

 

WINNER: Winterbrothers

Yesterday the main award at CPH PIX 2017, New Talent Grand PIX, was awarded. The jury picked Hlynur Pálmason as the winner with his ‘Winter Brothers‘. They emphasized the use of sound and image which captivated their senses completely. A big congratulation to the winner!

TIP: A Wedding

Even though Zahira is legal of age and lives en Belgium she is in impending danger of ending up in an arranged marriage in Pakistan. Watch Stephan Streckers highly topical drama, which, without securing any easy answers, raises questions on traditions, religion and the right to love.

The film screens at 21.30 in Grand. Read more HERE
