Haiku: In Basho's Footsteps

Loading...
In Sept. 2002, 14 haiku lovers from five different countries (including Visnja McMaster and Judit Vihar) follow in the master's footsteps as they open themselves to the haiku moment at the very places where Basho himself found inspiration. One of the best-known collections of classical haiku is Basho's "Oku no Hosomichi," or Narrow Road to the Deep North, written in 1689 as a record of the poet's travels in northwestern Japan. In this documentary, they retrace Basho's footsteps and discover the sources of his inspiration. All personal perceptions aside, everybody agrees that through the traditional 5-7-5 syllable format, the true beauty of nature comes together in a "haiku moment." The therapeutic value of haiku-writing for traumatized children and adults is also addressed.

Stalin's Bride

Loading...
Acclaimed Hungarian filmmaker Péter Bacsó (THE WITNESS) directs a searing satire about the Stalinist era. Poor, pitiful Parana wanders into a tiny village in the remote regions of the Soviet Union during the summer of 1937--the darkest days of Stalinism. The farming collective has little sympathy for the unattractive girl dressed in sackcloth, and they torment and ridicule her. Taking refuge under a poster of Stalin, the villagers dub her "Stalin's bride." Parana's appearance in the village stirs up fear and anger, leading to unexpected consequences. International stage and screen actress Juli Básti stars in this allegory of intimidation and repression from director Bacsó, renowned for his pointed tales about the dark days of communism.
