Weekend festival of documentary films. Catharsis, reflection on loneliness, provocation automatic translate
MOSCOW. The Center for Documentary Cinema wrapped up the weekend of the Festival Center festival.
Before the Revolution Provision warehouses, located on the Zubovsky Boulevard of the capital, supplied products to the neighboring military barracks. In the autumn of 1917, after a fierce battle with the cadets, the Red Army (the Red Army) settled here. In the 30th the monument of architecture of the XIX century was turned into a huge garage at the General Staff. The last decade Provisions provide Muscovites and guests with spiritual food. The territory of the historical complex now houses the Museum of Moscow. Now it is a platform for festivals, exhibitions, performances of artists and musicians, expositions, cultural and educational events, interactive programs for children.
In June 2013, the Documentary Center began its work here. The room with high ceilings allocated to it was ideally suited for creation in modular space of a convenient cinema with several dozen seats. The main task of the Center is to popularize the genre, to which the domestic public is not accustomed yet. Actual novelties, festival hits, archive rarities are the best documentaries of all time and people. There are film screenings with subsequent discussions and exhibitions, there is an extensive media library with journalistic, educational, musical, species, biographical tapes.
One of the CDC’s special projects is the annual Center Festival, where films about different aspects of the life of a large or small city are shown. Architecture, representatives of the subculture, social problems, interaction of the inhabitants of the "stone jungle" with the environment and with each other.
From April 6 to 8, the Central Festival hosted the Center Festival weekend. In the program - the best films of last season. "Maurizio Cattelan: Be Right Back" Maura Axelrod (Maura Axelrod) - about the life and work of Italian postmodernist Maurizio Cattelan (Maurizio Cattelan). The works of the self-taught artist are sold for hundreds of thousands of dollars. He tirelessly shocked the public with his provocative works: a gold toilet, a stuffed squirrel, put on Hitler’s knees, suspended to the ceiling works, a note on the door of the locked gallery without a single job - "I’m gone, I’ll be there soon." "The House of Mr. Moriyama" (Moriyama-San) is a story about an unusual building in the center of Tokyo, built for the famous musician-experimenter for the project of Pritzker Prize winner Rue Nisidzawa. Nine cubes with huge windows. A place where you can retire and simultaneously feel yourself outside these thin walls.
Tokyo Idols ("Tokyo Idols") - reflections on loneliness, the attempts of adult men to brighten it, 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 most powerful films of the program is "Internal Work" (The Work). Spectators are witnessing group sessions of psychotherapy in the American high security prison, which are invited and people "from the will." Hardened criminals and ordinary participants of the experimental program learn to negotiate with their internal demons, jointly work out their tormenting complexes, fears, childhood traumas. 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. On why Dutch prisons are empty and closed. On how non-humiliating conditions for the maintenance of prisoners significantly increase the effectiveness of their rehabilitation and adaptation at large.
