The Butler’s preview on Nov 24 at International Psychoanalysis and Film Festival

The feature movie “The Butler” directed by Lee Daniels will have its national preview on November 24 within the 2nd edition of the International Psychoanalysis and Film Festival to be held at the Bucharest Studio Cinema Hall over November 22-24.
Launched in 2012 by film critic Irina-Margareta Nistor, the Psychoanalysis and Film Festival is in fact the Romanian projection of the European Psychoanalytic Film Festival presided by Italian director Bernardo Bertolucci and headed by psychoanalyst Andrea Sabbadini.
The event kicks off on Nov. 22 with the screening for the first time in Romania of the movie “Seduced and Abandoned”. An exploration of several interconnected subjects such as cinema, glamour, money and death, the movie includes insights from directors Bernardo Bertolucci, Francis Ford Coppola, Roman Polanski and Martin Scorsese, as well as from actors Ryan Gosling, Jessica Chastain, Berenice Bejo and Diane Kruger.
In addition, featuring in the programme is the feature movie “Fruitvale Station”, by Ryan Coogler. The movie won the jury’s grand prize and the audience award at the Sundance Film Festival, as well as the Prix de l’Avenir Un Certain Regard award at this year’s edition of the Cannes Festival. Another movie to be screened and revealed to the Romanian audience is “Like Father, Like Son” directed by Kore-eda Hirokazu, the winner of the jury award in Cannes.
Romanian film lovers will also have the opportunity to watch national and international short movies such as “Me or the Pill” by Mimmi Damnitz, “Therapeutic Dialogues” by Andrei Georgescu, “Welkom”, directed by Pablo Munoz Gomez, “Ela, Panda and Madame” by Andrei Rautu, “You Freud- Me Jane” directed by Harald Schleicher and “The Therapy” by Beatriu Valles.
The screenings will be followed by talks attended by directors, producers, actors, film critics and psychoanalysts.
Romance Movie Days in Bucharest
The public preview screening of the feature movie “Matei, child miner” directed by Alexandra Gulea will be held in the opening of the first edition of the Romance Movie Days event on November 21 at the Bucharest Studio Cinema Hall, according to Mediafax. Alexandra Gulea’s hero is Matei (played by Alexandru Czuli), a 11-year-old boy who lives with his grandfather (Remus Marginean) in a mining region. His parents left Romania to earn a living in Italy. The boy and his grandfather get along perfectly, but Matei is dismissed from school following a mix-up and his grandfather responds in an unexpectedly violent way. Matei runs away from home and he meets Isidor, a shepherd in the hills, who sends the boy back to school. Instead of listening Isidor, Matei goes to Bucharest, where he discovers the Museum of Natural Sciences, and he realizes his mission is to study, not to become a shepherd. Shortly after his return back home, his grandfather dies and he is sent to an orphanage.
The event is organized by Charta Foundation and Imedia Advertising in partnership with the French Institute in Bucharest.
