ONE WORLD ROMANIA 2011 / editia a 4-a / 16-21 martie 2011

O LUME MINUNATA?!

Festivalul de film documentar dedicat drepturilor omului One World Romania ajunge la cea de-a patra editie, care va avea loc in perioada 16 – 21 martie la Bucuresti. One World a inceput in 1999 la Praga si s-a extins mai apoi in multe orase din intreaga lume. In ultimii patru ani, One World Romania a crescut, aducand la fiecare editie un program original. Anul acesta, festivalul este organizat de Asociatia One World Romania, in colaborare cu Centrul Ceh.

Anul acesta, Festivalul One World Romania aduce la Bucuresti 37 de filme documentare din peste 20 de tari. Proiectiile vor avea loc in perioada 16 – 21 martie la 4 cinematografe din centrul Bucurestiului: Cinemateca Eforie, Cinemateca Union, Cinema Corso si Noul Cinematograf al Regizorului Roman. La sfarsitul fiecarei zile, la NCRR vom avea cate o proiectie speciala, asa cum v-am obisnuit in fiecare an. Din numarul total de filme prezentate in acest an, 34 vor fi proiectate in premiera pentru publicul din Romania. Mai mult, una din productiile romanesti, “Valea Corlatului”, in regia lui Stephane Lucon, va avea premiera in timpul One World Romania

Traim intr-o lume minunata. Ar arata si mai bine daca unele documentare nu ne-ar deschide ochii.

Recunoastem solemn: noi suntem cei care strica imaginea omenirii. In timp ce imaginea Romaniei in lume este pazita cu indarjire de multi dintre cetatenii ei, unele tari mai slabe au ramas fara aparare. Asadar, am complotat impreuna cu regizori din toata lumea: fie ei britanici sau egipteni, mexicani sau estonieni, italieni sau americani, cu totii vorbesc in mod iresponsabil despre suferinta, injustitie, coruptie sau conflicte de familie.

Ce le pasa lor? E problema lor daca oamenii ar face orice pentru bani? Si de ce continua sa scormone traumele trecutului in loc sa se bucure de prezent? In plus, unii dintre ei indraznesc sa ne puna la indoiala eroii, zguduindu-ne certitudinile si defaimandu-ne statuile.

Ce o sa se intample cu lumea asta daca ei se tot plang despre felul in care ne tratam femeile si copiii? Mai mult, ceea ce ei numesc intoleranta e, de fapt, painea noastra cea de toate zilele.

De ce le-ar pasa? De ce v-ar pasa? Chiar e nevoie sa deschideti ochii?

Noi credem ca da, asa ca veniti la One World Romania. Suntem mandri sa va prezentam unele dintre cele mai relevante documentare ale anului, realizate de unii dintre cei mai ’nerusinati’ regizori.

ENGLISH VERSION

WHAT A WONDERFUL WORLD (?!)

37 Documentaries. 25 Countries. 4 Cinemas

This year, One World Romania Film Festival brings 37 new documentaries from over 20 countries to Bucharest. The screenings will take place from March 16th to March 21st in four cinemas in downtown Bucharest: Eforie, Union and Corso. As the audience has been used to, we will host a special screening in Noul Cinematograf al Regizorului Roman, each evening from the 17th to the 21st of March. Out of all the documentaries in this year’s selection, 34 will be screened for the first time in Romania. Moreover, one of the Romanian productions, “The Corlat Valley”, directed by Stephane Lucon will have the premiere during One World Romania.

This world is wonderful. It would look even better if some documentaries would not open our eyes.

We solemnly recognize: we are the ones who spoil the picture of the human race. While Romania’s image in the world is fiercely guarded by many of our citizens, some weaker countries have been left defenseless. Thus, we have been plotting with filmmakers from around the globe: be it Brits or Egyptians, Mexicans or Estonians, Italians or Americans, they are all irresponsibly driven to speak about sufferings, injustice, corruption or family dismay.

Why would they care? Is it their problem if people are keen on doing anything for money? And why do they keep talking about the traumas of the past, instead of enjoying the present? Moreover, some of them dare questioning our heroes, troubling our certainties and tarnishing our statues.

What would happen to this world if they go on complaining about the way we treat our women and children? And what’s more, do you think this is going to get better since what they call intolerance is our daily bread?

Why would they care? Why would you care? Do you need to open your eyes?

We think you do, so join us at One World Romania. We are proudly presenting you some of the most relevant docs of the year, made by the most ’impudent’ filmmakers.
