The Cyan-Blue Seagull Brotherhood

Storytelling and music performance
For young audiences aged between 11 and 15

The Slovenian youth classic The Cyan-Blue Seagull Brotherhood (Bratovščina Sinjega galeba) by Tone Seliškar appealed to many generations of children with its exciting story about a closed island community, the Sinji galeb sailboat and the warm friendship that develops on the boat. This suspenseful and adventurous story of courage, hope, camaraderie and solidarity remains of continuing relevance. Together with the creative team, we will navigate the rough seas, enjoying the storytelling, animated illustrations and songs (including the timeless anthem of the Cyan-Blue Seagull Brotherhood), until we safely reach our home port.

The performance is based on an eponymous picture book, a collection of humorous stories that earned its author Peter Svetina the national Večernica Award for best original children’s or young readers’ fiction.

Helge the porcupine is not really sure when a porcupine is ripe enough… However, a fall out of a cherry tree gets him entangled in a series of unusual and puzzling events. Accompanied by a she porcupine, Nikozija, Helge navigates the world of cunning and adorable creatures doing all those things that people normally do: painting, falling in love, singing, lounging about, driving, shopping and sweeping the floor.

Candide, The Age of the Enlightenment’s Critique of Naivety

Voltaire’s Candide is a philosophical tale, a short novel encapsulating the key aspects of its author’s worldview. Voltaire emphasized the importance of an individual for the healthy development of society, and mercilessly satirized all extremist views and judgments, including radical ideological beliefs.

Candide is an ironic attack on its hero’s naivety and Leibniz’s philosophy of “the best of all possible worlds” – the notion that the actual world must be the best one humanly possible – told with Voltaire’s inexhaustible wit, redemptive humour that is the only endurable medicine in an often unendurable world.
 

The event will be held in Slovenian without translation.

Father (Otac)

By: Srdan Golubović
Slovenian premiere

The 31st Liffe (11–22 Nov 2020) is establishing a new partnership with Poklon viziji (Omaggio a una visione), a transborder film festival organised by Kinoatelje in cooperation with partners from Slovenia and Italy. This year’s winner of the Darko Bratina Award and the principal guest at the Poklon viziji festival is Serbian director Srdan Golubović, whose latest film, Father / Otac (2020), will receive its Slovenian premiere on 7 October at Cankarjev dom – as a prelude to this year’s Liffe – and will be later screened within the context of Liffe’s regular programme. 

A small town in Serbia. Nikola, day labourer and father of two, is ordered to give up his children to social services after poverty and hunger drive his wife to commit a desperate act. Until he can provide adequate conditions for their upbringing, the children will be placed in foster care. Despite Nikola's best efforts and several appeals, the head of the social services centre refuses to return his children and his situation seems hopeless. But when Nikola discovers the local administration may be corrupt, he decides to travel across Serbia on foot and take his case directly to the national ministry in Belgrade. Against all odds and driven by love and despair, this father refuses to give up on justice and his right to raise his children.

The starting point of the round table is the realization that whilst an astounding organ, brain has been evolutionarily made for circumstances that are different to those prevailing in the modern world. Can artificial intelligence bridge this gap?

The Traitor (Il Traditore)

By: Marco Bellocchio

A true story about a Mafia boss, Tommaso Buscetta, whose testimony at the largest anti-Mafia trial in history allowed the conviction of hundreds of mobsters.

In the early 1980’s, an all-out war rages between Sicilian mafia bosses over the heroin trade. Tommaso Buscetta, a made man, flees to hide out in Brazil. Back home, scores are being settled and Buscetta watches from afar as his sons and brother are killed in Palermo, knowing he may be next. Arrested and extradited to Italy by the Brazilian police, Buscetta makes a decision that will change everything for the Mafia: He decides to meet with Judge Giovanni Falcone and betray the eternal vow he made to the Cosa Nostra.

 

 

The main character is indeed a traitor from Cosa Nostra’s point of view, from the point of view of Mafia tradition, from the point of view of the past, and from the point of view of the family he belongs to. For Buscetta, betrayal is an extremely painful decision, but at the same time, it’s him rejecting a certain type of Mafia that made decisions he doesn’t agree with. But Buscetta is no hero; he’s a brave human being who wants to save his and his family’s skin, and he’s also quite conservative because he yearns for the type of Mafia that watched him grow up, which baptised him, so to speak.

An Officer and a Spy (J'accuse)

Directed by: Roman Polanski

Roman Polanski po več kot desetletju svoj pogled ponovno usmerja v preteklost in prikaže razplet enega največjih političnih škandalov v francoski zgodovini. Velika nagrada žirije v Benetkah.

5. januarja 1895 obetavnemu oficirju Alfredu Dreyfusu zaradi vohunjenja za Nemčijo odvzamejo vojaški čin, ga obsodijo na dosmrtno ječo in ga pošljejo na Hudičev otok. Njegovemu ponižanju je priča tudi Georges Picquart, novi vodja vojaške obveščevalne enote, ki je dokazala Dreyfusovo krivdo. Ko Picquart odkrije, da zaupne informacije še vedno uhajajo na nemško stran, se znajde v nevarnem labirintu prevar in korupcije, ki ogrožajo ne samo njegovo čast, temveč tudi njegovo življenje.

 

 

V rani mladosti sem videl ameriški film Življenje Emila Zolaja. Presunil me je prizor, v katerem je bil častnik Dreyfus onečaščen. Celo tako dolgo nazaj sem si dejal, da bi nekega dne lahko ustvaril film o tej strašni zgodbi. /.../ Velike zgodbe pogosto vodijo v odlične filme, in Dreyfusova afera je izjemna zgodba. Zgodba po krivem obtoženega človeka vedno prevzame, vendar je tematika tudi zelo aktualna, glede na porast antisemitizma.
