FILM SCREENING IN YOUR CITY! Underground Independent Movies From Poland
Hello, last year I've walked through Spain. From Sevilla to Santiago de Compostela (1000km, 40days, with all luggage on back, with friends). During the journey I've made a movie. This year I'm walking to Santiago again (but from Portugal). Then I come back to Poland with my friend by hitchhiking. On our way back home I'd like to show the movie in different cities! Maybe yours :) Below are more details.
The movie's name is 'One sentence'. It's a short autobiographical documentary. It was completely shot during the way to Santiago. Music was composed by flamenco virtuoso Jesse Cook and polish composer Piotr Hummel. It's not a movie about tourist trip. It's about a journey inside yourself.
WHAT IS CAMINO DE SANTIAGO?
Camino de Santiago is the way to the town in North Spain called Santiago de Compostela. The remains of the apostole St James are believed to have been buried there. There are many routes to Santiago from different corners of the world. They were went by kings, saints and ordinary people. A pilgrim doesn't need any maps. Yellow arrows and shells guide him. A pilgrim may choose to walk alone or in a group. He may start Camino at any time of the year and from the place he wants.
My name is Artur Prus. I'm an amatour filmmaker from Poland. Although I have no film education my films where prized at many film festivals in Europe. I don't care about trends and commerce. All I'm looking for is truth. I may never learn how to make films but I would like to learn how to love. My full name is Artur Prus though I sign my works as Arczi.
Here is one of my short films if you courious - short film
If you are still interested below are some more details about SCREENING.
1) SCREENING - WHERE?
On the way Spain - Poland. So in these countries:
- Czech Republic
If you live in one of this countries the first condition is done!
2) SCREENING - WHEN?
Between 1st and 15th July 2012. If you are available in this period the second condition is done!
3) SCREENING - DETAILS
Now we need a place to screen. It could be:
- small cinema
- cultural centre
- outside (big wall and cine projector will do)
- other crazy ideas (ferry, spacecraft, sky :)
The whole screening last about 1h 20min. After the movie there could be a meeting/discussion with autor (so the person to lead the discussion is needed). I like the idea of a free screening. I don't want any money. An accommodation for me and my friend will be enough.
If you have a possibility or idea or you're willing to prepare such a place the last condition is completed!
Films are in polish language with english subtitles. The promotion of the event I leave to you. I have a few posters, information about the film, film frames and other things which may help in promotion.
If you have any questions or you are interested please contact me via cs or email (arczi.coder at gmail.com) or skype (arczicoder).
There is no much time. We flight to Portugal in a week (15th June) so decide quickly :)
