TIFF moves to Bucharest for a week

The best films screened at the Transylvania International Film Festival (TIFF) in Cluj-Napoca from May 31 to June 9 will be also shown in Bucharest between June 11 and June 17, at the Grand Cinema Digiplex. An unusual cinematographic experience is offered by ‘Blancanieves/ Snow-White’ directed by Pablo Berger, o a styled re-interpretation of the Grimm Brothers’ tale using the means of the cinema at the beginning of the 20th century. ‘Blancanieves’ was Spain’s proposal for the Best Foreign Film Academy Award and has recently landed a total of ten Goya awards –Spanish cinema industry awards). The winner of the Transylvania 2013 Trophy and of the Best Image Award, ‘Corabia lui Tezeu/ Ship of Theseus’, directed by Anand Gandhi, is another movie you can watch at TIFF Bucharest. Eulogised by the critique and holder of an Oscar for documentary films, ‘In cautarea lui Sugar Man/ Searching for Sugar Man’, directed by  Malik Bendjelloul, is the emotional story of the musician Sixto Rodriguez, who unknowingly influenced a whole generation in the 1960s. Addictive and surprising, ‘Prince Avalanche’ – secretly shot at the request of the director, David Gordon Green – tells the story of the friendship of two men who spend a summer together far from women and parties, painting the markings on a deserted and endless country road. On June 17, from 20.00, the public will enjoy the special screening of the ‘Samsara’ documentary (director  Ron Fricke), in the presence of  Stefania Magidson, the wife of the film producer and President of the Blue Heron Foundation, and of Tudor Giurgiu, the Director of the Festival. Filmed during five years in 25 different countries, ‘Samsara’ takes the spectators to sacred lands, calamity-hit areas, industrial sites and wonders of nature.
