Even in such strange and special times, master filmmakers continue to make films. Some are immersed in the themes that they have always delved into, while others are seeking to identify new perspectives on their own cinematic worlds.
Jean Cocteau’s old play is reborn into a modern story,
and piles of photos from two forgotten boxes revive the past of a certain life.
Good and evil come to face each other through two brothers;
The problem of the chain of labor exploitation transforms into a metaphysical question;
The endless conflict between Palestine and Israel remains in a dark labyrinth without an answer.
As two cineaste brothers gather fragments of the past to find out about their family’ secret,
operas recall their nights of glory in Paris.
Some talents are confined at home that feels like a prison due to prejudice and oppression in the name of tradition,
while social distancing unexpectedly presents us with a new theatrical film that unfolds outdoors.
All kinds of films that attempt to express their own perspective and tell stories about the world are still alive. Not only that, master filmmakers whose lives were all about film and whose films were their lives are adapting to the changes, as they capture and explain what is happening in the world. Works that tell stories about the past aim to talk about the present or the future, and at times about the films they love as well as the lives we lead. As someone once said, life and art cannot be separated, and these films are proof of that statement.
