Gemenc – The Wild Danube

 

nature documentary, Hungary, 2017 (6)
directed by Frigyes Olma

Running time: 60 Min

The landscape of Gemenc, the largest floodplain woods of Central Europe, is living and developing together with its waters. The river Danube defines the life of the drainage area’s flora and fauna, either by protecting or threatening, building or vanishing the scenery. The forest and the river provide an outstanding habitat for their residents, families of deers, boars, eagles, jackals, beavers, cranes and kingfishers of the Gemenc floodplain woods, including one of the area’s greatest population of the protected black storks. This stunning nature documentary – released with the support of WWF Hungary –  gives us insight into their lives. The film is a result of five years’ stringent and tenacious work: special disguised wildlife monitoring cameras, underwater or drone cameras were used to capture the wildlife of the drainage area including precious and previously unseen images of black storks nesting and raising up their squealers, or dramatic recordings of the big flood of the Danube in 2013. Besides the area’s wildlife, the documentary puts great emphasis on the presentation of the floodplain woods’ unique atmosphere as well, by capturing dawning landscapes and by numerous mid-air shots made with drones, while playing the evergreen melodies of Strauss, Vivaldi, Verdi, Puccini, Mahler and Bartók in the background.

Raffaello: The Lord of the Arts 3D – ART BEATS SERIES 2017

 

We are excited to officially announce the 2017 new ART BEATS season. In cooperation with worldwide distributor NEXO DIGITAL and featuring artists such as Botticelli, Raphael and Caravaggio, state-of-the-art technologies in 4K and 3D, unprecedented access to secluded collections, and even surprising links to commercial blockbusters, the new ART BEATS series is about to return with what might be the best season yet.

From the team that brought you “The Vatican Museums”, “Florence and the Uffizi Gallery” and “St. Peter’s and the Papal Basilicas of Rome”, comes a captivating portrait of one of the greatest Renaissance artists, as well as one of the most influential for the subsequent history of modern art. Widely regarded and celebrated as an “enfant prodige” by both his peers and generations to follow, together with Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael forms the traditional triad of the Renaissance masters. And yet, not many people know his story. Using both stereoscopic 3D cameras and the most advanced dimensionalisation techniques (but also available in 2D), along with commentaries by important critics and refined historical reconstructions, “Raphael – Lord of the Arts” will shed a light on his life and his exquisite craft that marked the passage from the Renaissance to the Mannerism and brought the figurative art to unprecedented heights.

Available from May 2017, Pannonia Entertainment distributes this thrilling 3D art documentary to cinemas across Hungary, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Bulgaria and Romania.

Caravaggio: The Ideal Exhibition – ART BEATS SERIES 2017

 

“Caravaggio – The Ideal Exhibition” inaugurates a highly innovative, brand new concept destined to redefine art documentaries. A very important curator, Antonio Natali (director of the Uffizi Gallery for over 10 years), recreates his ideal exhibition of Caravaggio in order to give us a fascinating and comprehensive portrait of one of the greatest, most controversial and beloved artists of all times.

Giò Forma – a top-notch international multi-platform bureau for design, responsible for designing some of the greatest concert tours, award ceremonies and events around the world (Olympic Games, Italy’s Expo etc…) – will create a virtual exhibition like no others that comprise installations, projections and the most advanced technological equipment. In this incredible environment, Natali will bring us through different rooms/chapters inspired by Caravaggio’s troubled and mysterious life, as well as by his phenomenal art, whose ground-breaking and violent realism was a shocking departure from the gentle art of the Mannerism. From there we will leap to the real locations where Caravaggio travelled and lived and where his famous paintings are displayed in order to analyze them in great detail: from his training period in Milan and Venice, to the sudden success in Rome, up to the murder and the consequent death sentence that forced him to flee to Naples, Malta and Sicily, where his work grew darker and darker, obsessed by images of death and themes like guilt, punishment and redemption.

Available from November 2017, Pannonia Entertainment will distribute this spectacular documentary to cinemas across Hungary, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Bulgaria and Romania.

Stage Russia HD – 2016/17 Cinema Season

 

stage-russia-logo-webre2Captured live in HD from the stages of Russia’s greatest theater companies, the Stage Russia HD series brings the mastery of Russian theater to Western cinema audiences. The inaugural season kicks off in September 2016 with the Vakhtangov Theatre’s magical production of Alexander Pushkin’s EUGENE ONEGIN.

Stage Russia HD features a broad mix of genres and styles, including classic productions, dance pieces, satirical works, and Soviet era surrealism – some with familiar titles and others that are lesser known to Western audiences, but which provide a small peek into what’s called the Russian soul…which, in typical Russian fashion is, of course, elusive.

Pannonia Entertainment distributes to cinemas across Hungary, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland and China.

Titles of the season:

The Cherry Orchard – Available on DCP with subtitles, from February 2017

Eugene Onegin – Available on DCP from with subtitles, from March 2017

Anna Karenina – Available on DCP with subtitles, from April 2017

The Black Monk – Available on DCP with subtitles, from November 2017

Stage Russia HD – Anna Karenina

 

sru-003_anna-karenina_productimage_en_xx_rgb_1348x2048_72dpi_20160710_03Directed and choreographed by Angelica Cholina, this Vakhtangov Theatre production of ANNA KARENINA is a modern dance interpretation of Leo Tolstoy’s classic novel, originally published in serial installments from 1875 to 1877 in the periodical The Russian Messenger. Telling the life story of the titular Anna, a St. Petersburg aristocrat, against the backdrop of late 19th century Russian society, Tolstoy’s novel is widely considered a pinnacle in realist fiction.

Cholina strives to find the equivalent of Tolstoy’s words in harmony and movement, as every gesture holds as much meaning as a word. The music of Alfred Schnittke helps to reveal the characters of the drama and their depth, together with elegance and mood corresponding to the amplitude of the novel.

Available in DCP from April 2017, Pannonia Entertainment distributes to cinemas across Hungary, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland and China.

Stage Russia HD – Eugene Onegin

 

tsl_stagerussiaonegin_event-693x1024Eugene Onegin has often been referred to as an encyclopedia of 19th century Russian life. Rimas Tuminas’ reimagining unfolds in the memory and imagination of Pushkin’s characters. The images are split between past and present, between reality and imagination.The scale of the production constantly shifts from noisy celebrations to secluded contemplation, from crowd scenes to lonely recollections, all of which are drawn together from the past just like the fragments of Tatyana’s love letter, framed and hung on the wall, looming next to and above Onegin’s arm-chair.

A production referred to as “exuberant, indelible and arrestingly beautiful” by the New York Times, The Vakhtangov Theatre’s Eugene Onegin, starring the incomparable Sergey Makovetskiy in the title role, is a sumptuous work that will leave you with enough beautiful memories and images to last a lifetime.

Pannonia Entertainment distributes to cinemas across Hungary, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland and China.

Stage Russia HD – The Cherry Orchard

 

sru-002_cherry-orchard_productimage_en_xx_rgb_674x1024_72dpi_20160627_06First produced in 1904 at The Moscow Art Theatre under the direction of Konstantin Stanislavsky, this production of Anton Chekhov’s classic tale of cultural futility, starring Russian stage and screen legend Renata Litvinova, is more relevant today than it was over a hundred years ago. Adolf Shapiro’s interpretation asks the question, where would the characters of this play live today years after their cherry orchard has been cut down? The answer, which lies in the material world created by set designer, David Borovsky, is, of course, on the stage.

A century later, this production brings The Cherry Orchard full circle, with its wandering band of characters never at peace, but finally back home.

Pannonia Entertainment distributes to cinemas across Hungary, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland,  Denmark, Finland, Sweden and China.

Revolution – New Art for a New World

 

Revolution – New Art for a New World is a bold and exciting feature documentary that encapsulates a momentous period in the history of Russia and the Russian Avant-Garde.

Drawing on the collections of major Russian institutions, contributions from contemporary artists, curators, and performers and personal testimony from the descendants of those involved, the film brings the artists of the Russian Avant-Garde to life. It tells the stories of artists like Chagall, Kandinsky, Malevich and others – pioneers who flourished in response to the Utopian challenge of building a New Art for a New World, only to be broken by implacable authority after 15 short years. Stalin’s rise to power marked the close of this momentous period. Yet the Russian Avant-Garde continues to exert a lasting influence over art movements up to the present day.

Filmed entirely on location in Moscow, St. Petersburg and London, with access to The State Tretyakov Gallery, The State Russian Museum, The State Hermitage Museum and in co-operation with The Royal Academy of Arts, London, the film features paintings previously banned and unseen for decades, and masterpieces which rarely leave Russia.

EXTRAORDINARY WORLD OF NICOLAS SCHÖFFER

olasz_magyar_10_schofferDocumentary film (English version, 25’)

A defining trend of the 60s was people`s optimistic faith in human intellectual energies, an unprecedented collaboration of scientific and artistic groups. Nicolas Schöffer, being one of best known artists of the era had a tremendous influence on future trends and is regarded as founder of cybernetic art.
“The task of an artist today is not the creation of art, but to enable the process of creation.”  – Nicolas Schöffer

Director of Photography Zsolt Nagy ’Big’
Narrated by Richard Rifkin

SOUND BEYOND TIME

olasz_magyar_10_boganyiDocumentary film (English version, 4K, 25’)
“We are dreaming up a sound. We have a certain idea. What a musician hears inside is always more beautiful than what he ends up emitting. At the same time, one should do it. This was the main train of thought behind the inspiration. It wasn’t the only one, however.” – Gergely Bogányi

GIVE ME A BIRO!

eec8010e180204bdda71f71c309be2a4Documentary film (English version,  25’)

“I used to read medicine, I used to racing cars, I was a graphologist, I did research in biology, I was an insurance clerk, I was in cargo shipping, I was an artist painter, and I was a journalist, a book publisher, a sculptor and an inventor. To be truthful, my profession is not to have a specific field of expertise”, Bíró wrote of himself. His most significant invention, the ballpoint pen was related to his career as a journalist.

Directed by Sándor Gerebics
Director of Photography: György Geo Tóth
Music by Béla Szakcsi Lakatos

Matthew Bourne’s Sleeping Beauty

 

SleepingBeauty-mainFollowing a sell-out UK tour Matthew Bourne’s brand-new production, Sleeping Beauty, is coming to cinemas for the first time. The story begins in 1890, the year of the ballet’s first performance, at the christening of the heroine Princess Aurora. It was the Fin-de-Siecle period when fairies, vampires and decadent opulence fed the gothic imagination. As Aurora grows into a young woman, we move forward in time to the more rigid, uptight Edwardian era; a mythical golden age of long summer afternoons, croquet on the lawn and new dance crazes. Years later, awakening from her century long slumber, Aurora finds herself in the modern day, a world more mysterious and wonderful than any fairy story!
