Azar Saiyar’s Tell Me (2019) and Jussi Eerola’s Blue Honda Civic (2020) were selected for the international competition of Kinodot Experimental Film Festival. The 8th edition of the festival will be held online from May 22–26. Each day at 00:00 Moscow time the festival will publish a new program and it will be available for 24 hours on our website.
Premiered at DOK Leipzig, Azar Saiyar’s Tell Me is included in the programme 3 on Sunday, May 24. A narrator asks: “Do you know this bird?”. Tell Me quotes both public and private archival images in which birds are in the centre – birds as individual living beings but also as creatures habiting the world and stories created by humans.
Jussi Eerola’s Blue Honda Civic, premiered at IFF Rotterdam, will be screened in programme 4 on Monday, May 25. The romantic landscape paintings often portrayed weather condition, topography of national landscape, religious themes, spirituality of nature and hunting scenes. Blue Honda Civic is a minimalistic road movie mirroring the emotions of the driver through the landscapes (s)he has chosen to look at.
