about my mother
Manuela, a single mother living in Madrid looses her only son when he his knocked down by a car on his 17th birthday while trying to get his favourite actress' autograph. Manuela, discovering that her son's most cherished wish was to meet his father, returns to Barcelona to find the boy's father. Described as a 'masterpiece, an instant classic', this film is a hothouse of lesbian actresses, pregnant nuns, heroin addicts, Aids sufferers, transvestites and transsexuals.
|Pedro Almodovar, Spain||March 3|
A zany black comedy about sexual confusion and youth culture in modern Iceland. Kormakur combines deadpan humour with an outrageously bleak, often stunningly poetic view of the land and its people. The energetic soundtrack, co-written by Damon Albarn of Blur, captures the lazy, reclusive Hylnur's burgeoning hysteria as he faces the moral dilemma of a lifetime.
|Baltasar Kormakur, Iceland||March 10|
of the Nation & Mise Éire, Ireland - DOUBLE BILL
Guests of the Nation, made in the 1930s by Denis Johnson, is based on the short story by Frank O'Connor, renowned author and playwright. The film will be introduced by Denis' son Michael and his grandson, Josh, who has written a beautiful score to the film, which he will perform on piano during the screening.
Mise Éire, directed by George Morrison, was commissioned to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the 1916 rising. Seán Ó Riada wrote a beautiful score for the film. Both Mise Eire and the music took Ireland by storm, making Ó Riada a household name and raising the status of Irish music.
