The program of the festival "Silent Nights" announced Automatic translate
ODESSA. From the 22nd to the 23rd of August, on the eve of Independence Day, the festival “Mute Nights” will be held for the sixth time in the Odessa Sea Terminal yacht club. Every year at this film forum, viewers are presented with old silent films from different countries, which were restored and accompanied by new soundtracks in live performance.
The main theme of the film festival will be related to propaganda art and decommunization. “The concept of decommunization imposes certain restrictions on the heritage of the Ukrainian avant-garde and potentially threatens its exclusion from the cultural turnover,” the organizers of Silent Nights 2015 write.
This year the festival will last a day less than usual. The forum program includes four full-length films and two 20-minute blocks of the early Ukrainian animation produced by Multagitprom. The first Karina, which the audience will see as part of the festival, is “Born in Fire” (1929) by Belarusian director Vladimir Korsh-Sablin. This is a propaganda film in which, through avant-garde cinema images, the author tells the story of the Belarusian people, or rather, the oppression of rural residents. The new soundtrack for the film was written by the Belarusian alternative group Relikt.
Another film of “Mute Nights-2015” is “Eroticon”, created in 1929, which is the last silent film of the Czech Gustav Mahat. This is a story about a young village girl who was seduced by a man from high society. The new music for the film was written by the Czech jazz band Forma.
At the festival, Ukrainian cinema will present the film “Wind from the Thresholds” (1929) by Arnold Kordyum. This picture tells about the construction of the Dnieper Hydroelectric Station, because of which there was a flooding of important historical places associated with the Cossack people and ordinary villages. The film was restored by the Alexander Dovzhenko National Center; its screening will be accompanied by the music of the Artokrats ensemble.
And the last picture that viewers will see in the framework of the Mute Nights 2015 film festival is Social Disintegration (1932). The film is a Greek neorealistic drama about a young man who, by the will of fate, ended up at the very bottom of his life, but did not lose faith and began the fight against social injustice. The insecurity of the hero and the economic crisis of that time echoes the events in Greece taking place today. "Social decay" has long been among the top ten best Greek films of all time. Accompaniment during the show will be pianist Yuri Kuznetsov.
