BFM — 33
BFM — 33
10 March

Bosnian director Aida Begić, one of the protagonists of BFM 32 section Europa: Femminile, Singolare, will meet the audience at the Meeting Point in Piazza della Libertà.

For the second year the festival’s approach to European cinema is focused on female production, and devoted to the works of four women filmmakers that established themselves on the independent scene by means of very personal style and strong authorship.

The 2015 edition protagonists are Andrea Arnold (Red Road, 2006; Fish Tank, 2009; Wuthering Heights, 2011), an emerging voice in new British cinema, combining the tradition of English realism with sober, uncompromising aesthetic choices; Bosnian author Aida Begić (Snow, 2008, Djeca, 2012), the sharp witness of a generation that has been atrociously wounded by a devastating, fratricidal war; Hungarian Ágnes Kocsis (Fresh Air, 2006; Pál Adrienn, 2010), who loves to concentrate her affectionate and accurate look on characters who run from loneliness in search of happiness; and Portuguese Teresa Villaverde (Os mutantes, 1998; Água e Sal, 2001; Cisne, 2011), authoring a severe – yet touching and lyric – cinema that brings particular attention to the stories of the weaker, whose sorrows, wounds and scars she can aptly tell.
