Short cuts to ZOOM in Tirana (Albania)
ZOOM vjen në Tirana Ekspres

Shfaqja e filmave nis në ora 15:00 në Tirana Ekspres, një hapësirë arti tanimë e dëshmuar dhe mbështetëse e madhe e artit në Shqipëri. “Shadowlands” nga Michel Pavlou nis i pari e më pas vazhdojnë edhe “Spacewrecked”, “Behind the Door” dhe “Water Lilies in Bloom” filmat tjerë nga Norvegjia, përderisa fokusi mbi filmin suedez nis me “Take to the woods” nga Kristina Frank dhe filma nga regjisorë si Maria Eriksson dhe Sascha Fulscher.
Një film që flet mbi përzierjen dhe analogjinë mes proceseve kinematografike dhe atyre historike. Një tjetër, flet mbi memorien njerëzore dhe hapësirën, dy koncepte që nuk rrojnë të ndara. Zbrazëtirat që krijohen tek një femër kur ajo humb mashkullin e saj, edhe ky është imazh filmi.
Të tilla histori do të vijnë më 14 prill në kryeqytetin shqiptar, në hapësirën Tirana Ekspres kjo në kuadër të programit ZOOM- dita e shfaqjes së filmave dokumentarë dhe atyre të metrazhit të shkurtër e të përzgjedhur nga Ljublana International Film Festival. ZOOM, sivjet sjell një përzgjedhje filmike të zhanreve të ndryshme nga regjisorë të shteteve evropiane, me fokus Norvegjinë, Suedinë dhe pjesën ballkanike. Iniciativa synon të sjellë regjisorë të rinj dhe prurje të reja filmike që servojnë histori të ndryshme për shikuesin.

WROTE ABOUT LISFF

Ljubljana International Short Film Festival - An Unexpected Experience


"Two weeks ago Tiefensucht represented the austrian film at the Ljubljana Short Film Festival in Slovenia. As director I was invited to stay for two days. I didn't have any clue about this festival, nor have I ever been in Slovenia before, and since the Festival administration wrote, that they booked a hotelroom for me in the fanciest hotel in town, I decided to come. When I arrived at the Hotel Celica I noticed that it actually was a hostel. I was wondering a bit, but didn't care. I went in, received the keys to my room immediately by two very nice girls at the front desk. I moved with my stuff to the first floor, where my room was supposed to be. When I walked down the hallway I noticed, that all the room doors were very tight next to each other. Then I finally reached my door, opened it and stood right in front of a steel bar door. I thought: Damn that looks like a prison cell! I looked around in the hallway and finally noticed, that I was actually standing in a real prison. There were even the signs with the prisoner names next to each door. While the other rooms looked a little bit more like hostel rooms with a wooden floor and normal beds, the festival managed to actually give me the room, that still had this cold brick stone floor, windows with bars, and simple black furniture that gave the feeling of living in a cave. There was not even a table in the room, but I loved it. I felt a little bit like Karl May during his creative process. Later on I figured out, that this was a military prison which was seized twenty years ago with the Area around it, which now is an art place with galleries, sculptures, lots of spray paintings, bars, clubs and a skater park. It is a very creative place I enjoyed a lot. And in the middle there was the Film festival. A very tiny but inspiring Festival, which will grow bigger every year for sure. I can only recommend going there as long as it is still noncommercial. The Slovenians are nice people, except when they are police officers charging tourists 80 Euros for jaywalking. Yes they caught me and Orsolya, another filmmaker, but we could bargain..."
