Silence and Cry

(Csend és kiáltás)
A film by Miklós Jancsó

Hungary, 1965

 

 

An elliptical, claustrophobic drama shot in the brilliant, breathtaking long takes that are Jancsó’s trademark, Silence and Cry is set after the fall of the short-lived Hungarian Soviet Republic of 1919. A young Red soldier, fleeing the anti-Communist manhunt, takes refuge at the isolated farm of a peasant family, who are are already under police scrutiny for being politically suspect...

 

Working on a more intimate canvas, following the epic The Round-Up and The Red and the White, Hungarian master Jancsó's film is still very much concerned with the terrible, tyrannical impact of power, politics and history.

"A newly intimate, domestic level [for the director]...Jancsó’s characteristic sequence shots turn the chamber drama into a political thriller pregnant with wider connotations"

Taşkafa, Stories of the Street /
Estate, a Reverie
Two films by Andrea Luka Zimmerman
UK, 2013 /2015

 

 

Artangel Open Winner, and the first director to be shortlisted for both the Grierson and Jarman Awards, the work of filmmaker, artist and cultural activist Andrea Luka Zimmerman presents tender portraits of community and solidarity, exhibiting sentiments almost entirely missing from our contemporary political vocabulary.

 

Taşkafa, Stories of the Street (2013) is an essay film about resistance and co-existence told through the lives of the street dogs of Istanbul featuring text and readings by the late John Berger.

 

Her feature documentary Estate, a Reverie (2015), celebrates her community’s resilience in the face of the impending demolition of their east London housing estate and the passing of the utopian promise of social housing it once offered. Filmed over seven years, Estate reveals and celebrates the resilience of residents, asking how we might resist being framed exclusively through class, gender, ability, disability or geography to present a spirited celebration of extraordinary everyday humanity.

“Estate is a deeply moving portrait of a community struggling to survive in a boarded-up London public housing project, long slated for demolition. Multilayered and profound...
A lyrical and gripping vision of the loneliness and disempowerment that haunts life even in the world’s wealthiest cities”
Joshua Oppenheimer, director of The Act Of Killing
