Animals are the best way of qualifying the cinema of Pema Tseden. In his latest film, Old Dog, dedicated to an old mastiff sheepdog prized by urban mafias, there is a foundational moment in his career as a film-maker: A sheep gets separated from the flock by a fence and, in one long shot, it tries to find a gap through which it can get back. The lost sheep runs to and fro in desperation around the fence that holds it, while the other sheep move off into the distance towards the horizon, and are gradually lost from view. A long shot lasting minutes, where no one says Cut or Action, and where reality bursts through with its full enigmatic charge. The Tibetan director insists: “I make works of fiction, not documentaries”, but the wayward sheep decries this: when reality knocks, the mise-en-scène disappears, and the shot is held until required by reality. False fiction in that case.
The second edition of the Punto de Vista International Seminar has its Billboard for the forthcoming edition. Since the festival of 2007, an image by a professional photographer has been used to illustrate each edition and on this occasion, a detail from the photographic work A Man Feeding Swans in the Snow by Marcin Ryczek has been chosen. The Polish photographer has transferred the rights to this photograph to the seminar for use as the image of the second edition, which will be held in Pamplona from 19th to 20th February 2014. Sharon Lockhart, Clemente Bernard, Matías Costa, Ellen Koi, Vicent Fournier, Aaron Huey and Bill Brown have collaborated as photographers in previous editions.
Dime quién era Sanchicorrota, the film by Jorge Tur produced by Punto de Vista as part of the X Films Project, continues its tour of film festivals. Following the prizes received at the Peruvian Transcinema festival (Memory and sensibilities prize), the Spanish Alcances festival (Special Mention and Uptofest Distribution Prize for the Best Feature-Length Film), and the French Cinespaña Festival in Toulouse (Best Documentary Film), the film will have its commercial release at Cineteca Madrid on 21st November, and will also be shown soon in Seville, Lisbon, A Coruña, San Sebastián, Barcelona, Santiago de Compostela, and Tübingen (Germany).
Patrick Viret, director of the Rencontres Cinématographiques in Cerbère-Portbou, in which the best documentary film festivals in France have been participating for over a decade, has decided to include the Punto de Vista Festival in future editions. This event takes place every October in the historic Hotel Belvédère du Rayon Vert in the French border town. At this event, each festival chooses one short film and one feature-length film from among those shown at its own programmes, two outstanding offerings to present that year to audiences at Cerbère-Portbou. Cinéma du Réel del Centro Pompidou, FID Marseille, and Cinémaginaire de Argelès-sur-mer are regular contributors to this event, which also features L´Alternativa del CCCB-Barcelona.
Our artistic director Oskar Alegria continues on his career path as a judge. Having judged the New Directors section at the latest Zinemaldia festival in San Sebastián, alongside Marina Stavenhagen, Carmen Cobos, Karel Och and Sophie Mirouze, Oskar Alegria is travelling in November to be one of the judges for the Pravo Ljudski Festival in Sarajevo and the Rencontres Internationales du Documentaire de Montréal, two major events in the independent film industry of the Balkans and the documentary film industry in North America.
