23:00 - Festival poletja v Mali šoli
MY BROTHER, MY EXECUTIONER: 3RD WORLD HERO REMIX

Pripravljamo mini retrospektivo filmov filipinskega političnega aktivista, poeta, pisatelja, glasbenika in režiserja Khavna De La Cruza (s partizanskim imenom [b]Khavn[eb]), ki bo na ekskluzivnem obisku Ljubljane svoje filme tudi osebno predstavil občinstvu. Khavn, ki je v svoji kratki karieri (rojen v Manili leta 1973) posnel že devet celovečernih filmov in več kot trideset kratkih, velja za enega ključnih filmskih akterjev tako imenovanega "Tretjega sveta"; obsežni retrospektivi njegovih del sta letos organizirala že prestižna festivala v Rotterdamu in Pesaru.

[b]Gromka bo zavrtela štiri kratke in en celovečerni film, po projekcijah bo Khavn vrtel filipinske urbane glasbe. V primeru zanimanja se filmski program podaljša do sončnega vzhoda.[eb]

Program:

[b]Mondomanila: institusyon ng makata[eb] (Mondomanila: Institution of Poets, 2005), 15'
[b]Pugot[eb] (Headless, 2005), 15'
[b]Can and Slippers[eb] (2005), 2'
[b]John Cage[eb] (2005), 2'
[b]Ang pamilyang kumakain ng lupa[eb] (The Family That Eats Soil, 2005), 75'

"Tristo let španske kolonizacije, petdeset let ameriških intervencij, štiri leta japonske okupacije in štiriindvajset let Marcosovega terorja je v filipinsko dušo zarezalo globoke brazde: iz teh je pred kratkim vzklila nadvse nenavadna obravnava posvečenega zidaka filipinske družbe – družine. Khavn se v celovečernem filmu [i]The Family That Eats Soil[ei] naloge (celo dobesednega) seciranja loti z žanrskim orodjem brutalne, nadrealistične satire. Khavnov portret vsakdana tipične filipinske družine, s spermo, krvjo, materinim mlekom in ušesnim maslom prepojena fešta raznorodnih ekscesov, s svojo sporočilnostjo pljune v oči filipinski tradiciji in zavesti, s svojo anti-narativno, izmaličeno garažno formo pa filmski umetnosti nasploh; film je, če že, primerljiv kvečjemu z [i]Obiskovalcem Q[ei] (Bizita Q) Miikeja Takashija. Vendar za razliko od Miikejeve ali Pasolinijeve Khavnova celica ne potrebuje nobenega obiskovalca, nobenega vdora drugega, da bi njeni člani lahko prečkali rob norosti in do suhega izželi svoje bolezenske fantazije: vso potrebno energijo očitno črpajo iz rodne grude, ki se v surovi obliki trikrat na dan znajde na družinskem jedilniku."

[b]Khavnov Dekalog[eb]

Film is dead. It is dead as long as the economy is dead, when public taste and creativity are dead, when the imagination of multinational movie companies is dead. At millions of pesos per film production, there ars not going to be a lot of happy days for the genuine filmmaker, the true artist who wants to make movies, not brainless displays of breasts and gunfire. But technology has freed us. Digital film, with its qualities of mobility, flexibility, intimacy, and accessibility, is the apt medium for a Third World Country like the Philippines. Ironically, the digital revolution has reduced the emphasis on technology and has reasserted the centrality of the filmmaker, the importance of the human condition over visual junk food. Film is dead. Please omit flowers.

I - Economics: A minute of celluloid film including processing costs around P1500. A minute of digital film costs around P3. Do the math. A galaxy of difference.

II - The only way to make a film is to shoot it. Shoot when you can. Do not delay. If you can finish everything in a day, why not? Sloth is the enemy of the Muse. The shadow filmmaker has now run out of excuses.

III - Your digital camera will not turn you into an instant Von Trier, Figgis, or Soderbergh. Your attitude towards filmmaking should be that of an amateur: half-serious, playful, light, not heavy, thus without baggage. There are no mistakes. The important thing is that you learn.

IV - Utilize all elements within your resources. If you have a knack for music, score your own soundtrack. If you have writing skills, craft your own screenplay. If you have money, invest in gear. If you have none of the above, make sure you have good friends.

V - Work with a minimized budget, cast, crew, location, and shooting schedule. Artificial lighting is not a necessity. The story is king. Everything else follows.

VI - Work with what you have. Release the bricoleur within.You are not a studio. Accept your present condition. Start here.

VII. - Forget celebrities. Fuck the star system. Work only with those who are willing to work with you, and those who are dedicated to the craft. Avoid pretentious hangers-on with hidden agendas. Use a lie detector if needed.

VIII - Work with humble, patient, passionate, and courageously creative people. Ignore people who are the opposite.

IX - If you are alone, do not worry. Digital technology has reduced the crew to an option, rather than a must. Making a film by yourself is now possible. The past is dead. Those who do not change will die.

X - Create first, criticize later. Take care of the quantity. God will take care of the quality - that is, assuming you do believe in God. A filmmaker makes films, period.

In the name of the revolution,
[b]Khavn[eb]
