FICBUEU

I «Cine Divergente» podcast will take over the «Cinema e Radio» section to review the highlights of the Festival’s programme

BUEU. PONTEVEDRA. 13.08.2023. The Bueu International Film Festival, which every year showcases new trends in filmmaking and auteur cinema, will once again focus on the perspective of women working in the audiovisual sector. The space «Talks with filmmakers» will bring together tomorrow a director and two actresses from two of the short films selected in the «Official Selection» of the event. Andrea Zapata-Girau from Vigo, author of Ruovesi, and the French actresses Chanel Victor and Marie-Solange Oussou, actresses of Anansi, will talk to the FICBUEU audience about the keys to the creative processes in their respective films. The meeting will be held from 21:00 in the Sala Amalia Domínguez Búa, after the screening of the short films.

Andrea Zapata-Girau, a filmmaker and editor who lives between Galicia and Finland, the country where she made her first films, will talk about the meaning of geographical and family exile and the inner and political struggle of a woman who survived the Chilean military repression and the relationship she has with her granddaughter. This is the story she tells in her short film, released this year and based on the life of the actress who plays the main role. The title Ruovesi comes from the name of the lake in the Finnish town where the film is set.

The filmmaker and screenwriter from Vigo will be accompanied in tomorrow’s colloquium by Chanel Victor and Marie-Solange Oussou, the main character and supporting actress in the film Anansi, by the French director of African origin Aude N’Guessan Forget, produced by the Paris film school La Fémis, where she trained. Chanel Victor, who is also a painter and photographer, brings to life in this short film a young woman who works in a hairdressing salon, who suffers daily from severe stomach pains and whose life becomes hell when the pain increases. The story is based on the director’s own experience.

 

Radio continues at FICBUEU

Tomorrow will also see the fourth episode of the space dedicated by FICBUEU to the medium of radio as a vehicle for cultural and cinematographic dissemination. «Cinema e Radio» will have as its guest the podcast Cinema Divergente, a programme that defines itself as an intellectual process of union between cinema and other cultural manifestations to talk about trends, authors and the less commercial circuit. Álvaro Peña, Javier Acevedo and Yago París will record live a new episode of their podcast in which they will review the most outstanding programme of FICBUEU. The activity will begin at 18.00 at the Festival’s meeting point and admission is free.
