Burma Soldier / US, Irlanda, 2010, 70 min.
Regia: Nic Dunlop / Annia Sundberg / Ricki Burma
VO: birmaneza / Subtitrari in engleza si romana
Sectiunea: Proiectii speciale

In Birmania, de aproape 50 de ani, regimul militar omoara mii de oameni si distruge orice forma de manifestare democratica. Fost soldat in armata birmaneza, Myo Myint a participat la ororile unui razboi intern crud si fara sens, a ramas fara un picior si fara o mana, s-a alaturat miscarii democratice condusa de Aung San Suu Kyi (laureata a Premiului Nobel pentru Pace, in 1991), iar regimul militar in care nu a mai crezut l-a aruncat in inchisoare unde a fost chinuit timp de 15 ani. Dupa atata suferinta, cu carisma si cu zambetul unui om liber, soldatul birman isi spune incredibila poveste cu indoiala ca Birmania va deveni stat democratic prea curand.

Astazi avem doua dezbateri la One World Romania – “Avocatul eroilor sau al diavolului” si “Orasele disperate au nevoie de imagini”. Prima are loc la Facultatea de Drept, in Aula Magna, de la ora 12, unde studentii vor viziona “William Kunstler – Disturbing the Universe”. Dupa proiectie, vor putea discuta cu fiica celebrului avocat si regizoarea filmului – Emily Kunstler, Georgiana Iorgulescu, director executiv al Centrului de Resurse Juridice, Thorsten Geissler, director al Programului Statul de Drept Europa de Sud-Est al Fundatiei Konrad Adenauer si Prof. Univ. Simina Tanasescu, Facultatea de Drept, Universitatea Bucuresti.
Cea de-a doua dezbatere are loc la Universitatea Nationala de Arta Teatrala si Cinematografica, incepand cu ora 13h00. Alec Balasescu, antropolog si militant Platforma pentru Bucuresti, Irina Zamfirescu, militant pentru pastrarea identitatii urbane a Bucurestiului (ActiveWatch) si Teodor Frolu, arhitect, militant Platforma pentru Bucuresti vor discuta cu cei prezenti, dupa vizionarea documentarului “Pit Hole”.

Tot astazi, la One World Romania incepe workshop-ul “Scrie, monteaza-ti trailerul, prezinta: Documentare pentru Piata Europeana”. Pentru al 3-lea an consecutiv, Leena Pasanen (YLE Facts&Culture / Finlanda) si Stefano Tealdi (Doc in Europe & Stefilm / Italia) conduc un atelier intensiv in cadrul festivalului. Atelierul din acest an se va concentra pe realizarea materialelor vizuale, fara a lasa totusi deoparte aspectele generale legate de prezentarea proiectului sau de pitching. Workshop-ul ce va dura pana pe 19 martie este singurul atelier ce se desfasoara la Bucuresti, adresat documentaristilor care intentioneaza sa isi aduca proiectele pe marile piete audiovizuale.

Recomandarea zilei: OCTOBER COUNTRY / Cinema Corso / 16h30
Familia Mosher isi cauta stabilitatea si normalitatea, desi cu fiecare batalie pe care o poarta, finalul fericit se indeparteaza tot mai mult. Tatal este veteran al razboiului din Vietnam si isi duce lupta tacuta cu nalucile trecutului, iar mama incearca sa tina in frau vietile membrilor familiei, fiecare dintre ei atins de agresivitate sau abuz si dominat de esec sau dezordine. Cu un model care se perpetueaza de la o generatie la alta, cea mai tanara din familie pare foarte constienta de dezastrul care o inconjoara si este hotarata sa rupa lantul. Dupa proiectie, veti putea sta de vorba despre film cu Vintila Mihailescu si Monika Stepanova, directorul artistic al Festivalului One World Romania.

ENGLISH VERSION

The special event of the day is held in NCRR (New Cinema of the Romanian Director), starting at 7 p.m. We will host a special screening of “Burma Soldier”. Jiri Sitler, the Ambassador of the Czech Republic, together with the Burmese dissident Wai Hnin Pwint Thon and Eva Homolkova, the People in Need representative will talk to the audience after the screening.

For the last 50 years, the military regime in Burma has killed thousands of people and destroyed any form of democratic expression. Former soldier in the Burmese army, Myo Myint took part in the horrors of a cruel and senseless internal war, was left without a leg and without a hand, has joined the democratic movement led by Aung San Suu Kyi (winner of the Nobel Peace Prize in 1991 ) and the military regime that he stopped believing in has thrown him in jail where he was tortured for 15 years. After much suffering, with charisma and the smile of a free man, the burmese soldier tells his incredible story with doubt that Burma will become a democratic country in the near future.

We have two great debates for today – “Defending Inglorious Heroes” and “Documenting the City”. The first one takes place at the Law University, in the Aula Magna Hall and it starts at 12 p.m. The students wll watch “William Kunstler – Disturbing the Universe” and after the screening they can talk with the famous lawyer’s daughter and one of the film’s directors – Emily Kunstler, with Georgiana Iorgulescu (executive director at the Judicial Resources Center), Thorsten Geissler (director of the Rule of Law Program South East Europe of the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung) and Simina Tanasescu (professor at the Law School in the Bucharest University).The second debate starts at 1 p.m. and takes place at the National University of Cinema and Theatre Art. Alec Balasescu – anthropologist and „Platforma pentru Bucuresti” activist, Irina Zamfirescu, ActiveWatch activist for the preservation of Bucharest`s urban identity and Teodor Frolu (architect and „Platforma pentru Bucuresti” activist) will talk to those present after the “Pit Hole” documentary screening.

Also, today we start the “Write, edit your trailer and pitch: Documentaries for the European Market” workshop at One World Romania. For the 3rd consecutive year, Leena Pasanen (YLE Facts&Culture / Finland) and Stefano Tealdi (Doc in Europe & Stefilm / Italy) conduct a 2-day workshop during the festival. This year’s workshop focuses on the visual materials together with the more general aspects of project presentation and pitching. “Write, Edit your Trailer and Pitch” is the only Bucharest-based training intended for documentary professionals that want to bring their projects to the major audiovisual markets.

Daily recommendation: OCTOBER COUNTRY / Corso Cinema / 16h30
The Moshers are looking for constancy and normality, though with each battle they fight the happy ending is getting farther and farther. Father is a Vietnam war veteran and is fighting his silent battle with the past`s ghosts while the mother tries to moderate her family members lives, each of them showing signs of aggressiveness and abuse dominated by failure or disorder. With this pattern passing from one generation to the other, the youngest member of the family is aware of the mess around her and decided to break this pattern.
After the screening, you can have a small discussion on the film with Vintila Mihailescu (anthropologist and psycho-sociologist) and Monika Stepanova, the artistic director of One World Romania.
