The best of Central Eastern European cinema is making its return in digital form, on account of the ongoing health crisis, by way of the 32nd Trieste Film Festival which will run 21 – 30 January. The 50+ titles selected for the event directed by Fabrizio Grosoli and Nicoletta Romeo will be available to view on the MyMovies platform. This particular edition of the festival was supposed to revolve around the thirty-year anniversary of the Balkan Wars (1991/2021), “a project we’d been working on for years”, the artistic directors explain. But the pandemic has forced the festival to postpone this focus, “because many of the films we would have wanted to screen only exist in 35mm copies, which are impossible to screen in online festivals. Consequently, the tribute has been postponed (only to the spring, we hope), but we nonetheless felt it right to include two symbolic moments in such an important anniversary edition.” Indeed, it will be the film Underground which opens this year’s festival, an anarchic and surreal tale on the dissolution of Yugoslavia by Emir Kusturica, who won Cannes’ Palme d’Or in 1995, while another great work is scheduled to close the event: Ulysses’ Gaze by Theo Angelopoulos, who won the Grand Prize during that same year at Cannes.
