«TO ME CINEMA IS THE ART OF HAVING EACH THING IN ITS PLACE. IN THIS IT RESEMBLES ALL THE OTHER ARTS. LIKE THE ANECDOTE ABOUT JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH PLAYING FOR A STUDENT, THE STUDENT GUSHES WITH ADMIRATION, BUT BACH SAYS, “THERE’S NOTHING TO ADMIRE. YOU JUST HAVE TO HIT THE NOTE AT THE RIGHT TIME, AND THE ORGAN DOES THE REST.”

«MASTERPIECES ARE BORN OF THE ARTIST’S STRUGGLE TO EXPRESS HIS ETHICAL IDEALS. INDEED, HIS CONCEPTS AND HIS SENSIBILITIES ARE INFORMED BY THOSE IDEALS. IF HE LOVES LIFE, HAS AN OVERWHELMING NEED TO KNOW IT, CHANGE IT, TRY TO MAKE IT BETTER—IN SHORT, IF HE AIMS TO COOPERATE IN ENHANCING THE VALUE OF LIFE, THEN THERE IS NO DANGER IN THE FACT THAT THE PICTURE OF REALITY WILL HAVE PASSED THROUGH A FILTER OF HIS SUBJECTIVE CONCEPTS, THROUGH HIS STATES OF MIND. FOR HIS WORK WILL ALWAYS BE A SPIRITUAL ENDEAVOR WHICH ASPIRES TO MAKE MAN MORE PERFECT: AN IMAGE OF THE WORLD THAT CAPTIVATES US BY ITS HARMONY OF FEELING AND THOUGHT, ITS NOBILITY AND RESTRAINT.»

I’M NOT INTERESTED IN REALISM. ALL MY FILMS HINGE ON THE FANTASTIC. I’M NOT A DOCUMENTARIAN; A FILM IS FIRST AND FOREMOST A DREAM, AND IT’S ABSURD TO COPY LIFE IN AN ATTEMPT TO PRODUCE AN EXACT RE-CREATION OF IT. TRANSPOSITION IS MORE OR LESS A REFLEX WITH ME: I MOVE FROM REALISM TO FANTASY WITHOUT THE SPECTATOR EVER NOTICING.

«WE DIRECTORS HAVE A VERY LARGE RESPONSIBILITY. WE HAVE IT IN OUR HANDS TO LIFT THE FILM FROM INDUSTRY TO ART, AND, THEREFORE, WE MUST GO TO OUR WORK WITH SERIOUSNESS, WE MUST WANT SOMETHING, WE MUST DARE SOMETHING, AND WE MUST NOT JUMP OVER WHERE THE FENCE IS LOWEST. IF FILM AS AN ART IS NOT TO COME TO A STANDSTILL, WE MUST WORK TO CREATE A MARK OF STYLE, A MARK OF PERSONALITY IN THE FILM. ONLY FROM THIS CAN WE EXPECT RENEWAL.»

«THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF YOUR EQUIPMENT IS YOURSELF: YOUR MOBILE BODY, YOUR IMAGINATIVE MIND, AND YOUR FREEDOM TO USE BOTH. MAKE SURE YOU DO USE THEM.»

MAYA DEREN

«WHEN WE EXPERIENCE A FILM, WE CONSCIOUSLY PRIME OURSELVES FOR ILLUSION. PUTTING ASIDE WILL AND INTELLECT, WE MAKE WAY FOR IT IN OUR IMAGINATION. THE SEQUENCE OF PICTURES PLAYS DIRECTLY ON OUR FEELINGS. MUSIC WORKS IN THE SAME FASHION; I WOULD SAY THAT THERE IS NO ART FORM THAT HAS SO MUCH IN COMMON WITH FILM AS MUSIC. BOTH AFFECT OUR EMOTIONS DIRECTLY, NOT VIA THE INTELLECT. AND FILM IS MAINLY RHYTHM; IT IS INHALATION AND EXHALATION IN CONTINUOUS SEQUENCE.»

DOVZHENKO TRIED TO TEACH US TO SEE THE WORLD. MOST OF ALL HE WARNED US AGAINST ACQUIRING ONLY THE TECHNICAL SKILLS OF THE CRAFT. HE DID NOT LIKE “FOLLOWERS” WHO JUST TRIED TO APE HIS APPROACH. HE URGED US TO BE FAITHFUL TO OURSELVES, TO TRUST OUR OWN FEELINGS AND TO STAND UP FOR OUR VIEWS. I DID NOT REALIZE AT THE TIME HOW DIFFICULT THIS IS. YOU COME TO UNDERSTAND SUCH THINGS AS YOU GROW OLDER…HE USED TO TELL US THAT WHEN STARTING ON A NEW FILM WE SHOULD KNOW WHAT NEW THINGS IT WOULD TELL THE AUDIENCES, AND WHETHER IT WOULD FOSTER THEIR BETTER HUMAN QUALITIES. I THINK THIS IS THE GOAL OF ART.

‘Silence’ lo nuevo de Martin Scorsese

Martin Scorsese

Ha finalizado el Taiwan el rodaje de Silence  la nueva película de Martin Scorsese, y ya han comenzado a parecer las primeras imágenes de la película.

Silence es una adaptación del libro de Shusako Endo que dejó maravillado a Martin cuando lo leyó, allá por el año 1988. por lo que el proyecto es de larga duración.

Andrew Garfield interpreta al padre Rodrigues, un misionero jesuita portugués del siglo XVII quien viaja hasta Japón pues algunos rumores afirman que su mentor (Liam Neeson) ha abandonado el camino de la Iglesia.

Esta es la primera imagen oficial publicada por Entertainment Weekly  pero también a través de esta página de Taiwan se han filtrado otras imágenes de una presentación en un cine.

Silence Martin Scorsese

Seguro que esta nueva película será una delicia para los jóvenes directores y estudiantes de cinematografía en general pues Martin Scorsese ha creado un estilo cinematográfico propio además de su gran influencia por la labor educativa y de dignificación del cine que lleva a cabo.

Sergio Zaurín

Sergio Zaurín, alumno venezolano diplomado en dirección y cámara en la escuela nos ha alegrado la tarde al saber que ha representado a su país en el festival canadiense International Festival of Films on Art.

No es fácil conseguirlo, sólo dos trabajos de hispanoamérica han participado este año. El documental Pinkfonic de Sergio Zaurín y la película brasileña Thread in Blue.

Os dejamos la noticia publicada en la prensa venezolana y una entrevista con Sergio, al que danos nuestra más fuerte enhorabuena.

«El director venezolano Sergio Zaurín sorteó varios obstáculos para llegar a tiempo a su cita en Montreal, Canadá, en ocasión de la edición 31 del International Festival of Films on Art (Fifa) que se celebró entre el 14 y el 24 de marzo.

Con los nervios de punta “por el problema de Cadivi” y los dólares que llegaron justo antes de partir al evento, el joven cineasta de 35 años al fin pudo disfrutar su momento.

Su documental “Pinkfonik”, de 56 minutos, representó a Venezuela en la Fifa, uno de los festivales más importantes de las artes fílmicas en el mundo…»
