At the 20th Slovenian Film Festival (FSF) we present ourselves with three films

THE 20TH JUBILEE SLOVENIAN FILM FESTIVAL (FSF) STARTS ON TUESDAY, 12/9. BELA FILM PRODUCTION IS PRESENTING THREE FILMS AT THE FESTIVAL.

On Thursday, September 14, at 7:00 p.m., the short feature film GOOD MONEY AFTERNOON, written and directed by Martin Turk, will be screened in the Main Hall of Portorož Auditorium. The story of an unemployed father who spends an afternoon making a seven-year-old film traveled the world and won an award at the Oberhausen festival. In Portorož, it is competing for the award for the best short film.

On Friday, September 15, at 11:30 a.m., the full-length documentary film BLUE VELVET REVISITED by the German author Petr Braatz will be shown in the Main Hall. About the film, which in a meditative-hypnotic way tells about the filming of David Lynch’s cult Blue Velvet, the Hollywood Report wrote: “An elusive but charming lo-fi love letter to a mysterious cult classic. /…/ a magical visual poem that takes us straight to the heart of Lynch’s most influential masterpiece, without revealing its inscrutable secrets. /…/ While it doesn’t reveal much about Lynch’s landmark film, it’s a charmingly whimsical 1980s time capsule and a disarmingly heartwarming backstory to the dark cult classic. Revisiting Blue Velvet is also a quietly hypnotic sensory experience with a unique rhythm and image that makes it work as a work of art in its own right, rather than a mere mirror image of its subject. The real treasure is represented by Braatz’s rich archive of black-and-white photographs /….”

On Saturday, September 16, at 11:30 a.m., the medium-length documentary PAPPENSTORY by director Martin Turk and screenwriters Bogomila Kravos and Martin Turk will be screened in the Main Hall. The film tells about the turbulent times in the early 1970s in Trieste, when a group of young theater enthusiasts organized themselves into the amateur theater SAG Trieste with the aim of critically addressing current political and social issues. This brave attempt by young and naive theatergoers soon led to the closure of the theater. The television premiere of the film will take place on September 24 at 10:30 p.m. on the first program of TV Slovenija.
