“Talking, singing and painting the beauty of the world is to bring out the most secret affinities of the mind and the object, to give free rein to the visible unity of nature” express Vincent Vatrican and Jacques Kernabon in their editorial.
From Mr Hulot, in search of natural contact with things and beings, through to Jean-Daniel Pollet uncovering from one season to the next the simple magic of being there, and the Taviani brothers who, through a selection of tales, express their love of Sicily, the highly diverse programme brings us to admire the beauty of nature, beings and things. We are introduced to young directors, such as Sergueï Dvortsevoy, who take us to the deepest steppe of Kazakhstan and Thierry Knauff whose films are inspired from musical works. The great masters of classical cinema have not been forgotten: Friedrich Wilhelm Murnau, Jean Renoir, Ingmar Bergman, Akira Kurosawa. Authors including Jean Vigo, Abbas Kiarostami, Nicholas Ray, Souleymane Cissé, Eric Rohmer and Takeshi Kitano also provide us with their vision of beauty.
A beautiful season not to be missed.
