In search of a new perspective

Come December, and it transforms into 'Godard's own country', an indication that the international film festival held in the capital city, Thiruvananthapuram, has begun. The crowd that flocks to the cinema halls as delegates for this festival is, in itself, testimony to what cinema means to us as a nation.

From directors Alanis Obomsawin, Sarah Polley, Guy Maddin, and Xavier Dolan, to actors Sarah Gadon and Ellen Page, and a documentary scene (The World Before Her, Stories We Tell, Watermark) that continues to thrive despite our conservative government’s continual slashing of arts funding, Canadian film is worth the price of admission.

The Resistance

by Alonso Díaz de la Vega Film criticism wasn’t my dream. My dream was to make films —it still is— yet I do not treat my current profession as a step towards filmmaking, but as an independent exercise of imagination. Criticism is not, as many have deemed it, the ranting of the frustrated and the unaccomplished; it is rather a stand against triviality and irrelevance.

Nigerian Cinema's Nominal Headache

by Oris Aigbokhaevbolo Nigerian cinema has moved so much in one direction that in the last few years, some filmmakers, new, young, at once freed and craving to be freed from their forebears, have begun to react to this seemingly inexorable movement. They push against it nominally and in practice, by rejecting the nomenclature Nollywood, and by adopting filmmaking techniques alien to Nigerian cinema.

Talent Press, an initiative of Berlinale Talents in collaboration with FIPRESCI and the Goethe-Institut, is a platform for young film critics and journalists from around the world to acquaint themselves with current trends in world cinema. Selected by an international jury, they are invited to Berlin to review films of the festival and report on events of Berlinale Talents. Under the tutelage of prominent film critics they share their impressions and insights through their daily articles for the Berlinale Talents website and those of its partners – FIPRESCI and the Goethe-Institut.
