Weekend of the festival of documentaries. Catharsis, thinking of loneliness, provocation Automatic translate
MOSCOW. At the Center for Documentary Films, the weekend of the Center Festival ended.
Before the revolution, Provision warehouses located on Zubovsky Boulevard of the capital supplied groceries to neighboring military barracks. In the autumn of 1917, after fierce battles with the junkers, the Red Army (Red Army) settled here. In the 30s, an architectural monument of the 19th century was turned into a huge garage under the General Staff. The last decade Proviant provides Muscovites and guests of the capital with spiritual food. On the territory of the historical complex is now the Museum of Moscow. Now it is a venue for festivals, exhibitions, performances by artists and musicians, expositions, cultural and educational events, interactive programs for children.
In June 2013, the Documentary Film Center began its work here. The room with high ceilings allocated to him was ideally suited for creating a convenient cinema in the modular space with several dozen seats. The main task of the Center is to popularize the genre, to which the domestic public is not yet accustomed to. Actual news, festival hits, archival rarities are the best documentaries of all time. There are film screenings followed by discussions and exhibitions, there is an extensive media library with journalistic, educational, musical, specific, biographical tapes.
One of the special projects of the Central House of Artists is the annual Center Festival, which shows films on various aspects of the life of a big or small city. Architecture, representatives of the subculture, social problems, the interaction of the inhabitants of the "stone jungle" with the environment and with each other.
From April 6 to April 8, the Central Festival weekend was held at the Central House of Artists. The program includes the best films of the last season. “He left, I will soon be” (Maurizio Cattelan: Be Right Back) Maura Axelrod - about the life and work of the Italian postmodernist Maurizio Cattelan (Maurizio Cattelan). The works of a self-taught artist are sold for hundreds of thousands of dollars. He tirelessly shocked the audience with his provocative works: a golden toilet, a scarecrow of squirrels, put on Hitler’s lap, work suspended from the ceiling, a note on the door of a locked gallery without a single work - "He left, I will be soon." “Mr. Moriyama’s House” (Moriyama-San) is a story about an unusual building in the center of Tokyo, built for the famous musician-experimenter according to the project of the Pritzker Prize winner Rue Nishizawa. Nine cubes with huge windows. A place where you can retire and at the same time feel yourself outside these thin walls.
Tokyo Idols (“Tokyo Idols”) - reflections on loneliness, attempts by adult men to brighten it up, turning into an otaku — passionate fans of young performers or “idols”. “The theory of free breakfasts” is a story about the social program of gratuitous payments to the population in Alaska.
One of the program’s most powerful films is The Work. Spectators are witnessing group sessions of psychotherapy in an American maximum security prison, to which people are invited “out of control”. Inveterate criminals and ordinary participants in the experimental program learn to negotiate with their internal demons, work together to work out their tormenting complexes, fears, and childhood injuries. The result is a saving catharsis and a desire to start a new life. An occasion to reflect on the revision of the basic principles of the domestic penitentiary system. Over why Dutch prisons are empty and closed. About how conditions of detention of prisoners that do not degrade human dignity significantly increase the effectiveness of their rehabilitation and adaptation at large.
