Henrikku Terayama's Performance and a meeting with the stars of Beanpole
Monday usually has unpleasant associations-but not at New Horizons. A new week at the festival gets started with a screening of Kantemir Balagov's Beanpole (10:45) and a meeting with two of the actresses from the film: Viktoria Miroshnichenko and Vasilisa Perelygina. Following a screening of Property (13:00), we will speak with the film's director, Matthias Lintner.
We're going to get the afternoon session going with a screening of Fukuoka (15:45), followed by a meeting with Zhang Lu (director) and Jiahan Xu (producer). We invite you to a screening of Ray & Liz at 16:00, which the director, Richard Billingham, will tell us about after the film. During the same time block, you may also want to check out Owner's Portrait (16:15) and then to stick around for a Q&A session with Joaquín Maito (we recommend this interview with the director). There will be an opportunity today to see Kazimierz Kutz's cult film The Salt of the Black Earth (16:15) and to take part in a discussion with Andrzej Wilk, who plays the character of Alojz.
In the evening, we invite you to a special event called Terayama: Performance, a fantastic combination of performance art and cinema prepared by Henrikku Terayama that will get under way at 18:45. At 19:00, The Seer and the Unseen will transport us to the magical island of Iceland. The director,Sara Dosa, will be on hand to discuss the film. Also awaiting us at 19:00 is a meeting with a legend of erotic cinema, Christina Lindberg, who plays the eponymous character in Anita: Swedish Nymphet.
As we have always done, we also recommend encounters with art. A curatorial tour of the exhibition Inner Life: The Bump starts at 18:00 at the Studio BWA Wrocław gallery. Also worth seeing is A Horizontal Panorama: Kodras at the TIFF Gallery and Albert Serra's multimedia installation Sun King at OP ENHEIM. At Centennial Hall, you can watch (and experience) the interactive exhibition Cabinet | Das Kabinett.
At 19:00, we invite you to a literary meeting prepared in cooperation with Empik (Barbara, ul. Świdnicka 8b). Michał Nogaś will speak with Joanna Ostrowka about sexuality, violence, and persecution based on one's sex or sexual orientation. Ostrowska is a culture expert, researcher, writer, and author of the book Przemilczane. Seksualna praca przymusowa w czasie II wojny światowej, about forced sex work during World War II. Admission is free of charge.
Old-school/techno/trance/hard-core/post-rave, i.e., musical delicacies inspired by Brian Welsh's film Beats. The presence of Pan DżejDżej, Ravetoszyn, and Wix Colline guarantees a first-rate experience. As the poet said, "Rave to the Grave!" - at the Festival Club at Arsenal, of course.
