A film never finishes when the end titles come up, as films leave behind them a world full of ideas and thoughts that we often have the need to share with other people. The result of such an exchange can surprise us, but can also change our perspectives on what we saw and how we interpreted it
Together with the Cinobo curating team, we invite our Members to a monthly talk that starts with a film presentation, goes beyond the limits of a "lecture" and expands into an exciting cinematic dialogue.
Jake Gyllenhaal reunites with Denis Villeneuve, the director of the latest film “Dune”, in a hypnotic and surreal psychological thriller based on Nobel laureate José Saramagu's book "The Double". Villeneuve himself has stated that the form of the giant spider he presents in the film was inspired by Bourgeois sculpture, “Maman”, in an attempt to present the spider and its web as an extension of creating a political-social allegory in the film.
Summary: A sullen history lecturer shows a lack of interest in everything, even in having sex with his partner. While watching a movie, he sees his double in the face of an actor with a bit part. Overwhelmed by the desire to meet his doppelgänger, he decides to track him down. When the two men meet, their lives become strangely intertwined.
Director: Denis Villeneuve | Stars: Jake Gyllenhaal, Mélanie Laurent, Sarah Gadon, Isabella Rossellini, Tim Post
Festival Gem: Best Canadian Film | Toronto Film Critics Association Awards 2014
This trimester we will focus on screening films, characterized as "Festival Gems", films that became popular through festivals, not necessarily because they won a major award. Among other things, we will also discuss, how festivals managed to lead the way for some films, which otherwise would have hardly reached us. The dialogue will take place between the film, its festival journey, as well as its influence on the film.
