This weekend, as in the past few weeks, we have offered a combination of cultural products for the holidays, but the combination this time is more focused on culture and European art has failed.
Unlike the last few weeks, when we introduced most of the new movies, this week we have gone back a few decades and chosen one of the key movies in the history of Italian Cinema to watch. One of Zbigniew Preisner's famous albums and watching the Photos of the Austrian Ernst Haas completes this European combination. In addition, of course, we recommend a book by Noel Carroll on the philosophy of criticism that does not leave critics interested in any medium of art.
What to see?
Our movie suggestion for this weekend is to watch the movie "Nights of Cabiria" by Federico Fellini, which Built in 1957.
It's not bad to go to the older masterpieces of European Cinema this weekend instead of watching a new movie. Among the countries with European cinematic style, the legacy of Italian Cinema is undeniable, and one of the most prominent figures among Italian filmmakers is Federico Fellini.
Fellini is the connecting point between neorealist Cinema and modern Italian cinema. Fellini has made a variety of films depending on the period of his artistic life, but our suggestion for this weekend is one of his bitterest but most influential films. A film that could possibly cover a wider range of cinematic tastes (compared to some of his later films with more intense psychological tendencies) and at the same time stand out at the top of the quality. The city of Rome narrates. This time we are not on the side of a fiery adventure full of watery feelings; Fellini affects our emotions in a more complex way. We move on with Cabierra's limited hopes, we experience its bitterness, but in the final analysis of hope, it is an inevitable part of Cabrire's life and that of us, the viewers of Cabierra's Nights, and the film reflects that view in its own way. The Academy Award for Best Non-English Language Film went to Federico Fellini after La Strada. Interestingly, these two awards went to Italian Cinema for two consecutive years./Federico Fellini
Chi Shall we read?
However, Noel Carroll's book "On Criticism" is not necessarily limited to film criticism, although the theories presented in this book are also quite practical in the field of film criticism, and the author may sometimes cite examples From Cinema directly to illustrate further ideas.
Carol, an American philosopher and one of the key figures in Asr is in the field of philosophy of art. In his book, he examines what activities criticism involves. Carol considers critiques (whether film criticism, literary criticism, and basically the critique of any artistic phenomenon) to include sections such as description, explanation, categorization, contextualization, interpretation, and finally evaluation. Although it is a book about criticism, it is a book about the philosophy of criticism and a kind of philosophy of art, but it does not have a complex language and is quite useful and readable for the audience interested in art. The book is a little over 200 pages so it is not very large but the volume is not too large to be compensated with considerable depth.
strong> What should we listen to?
This weekend, the music album of "Deh Farman" (Dekalog) Listen to Zbigniew Preisner.
Preisner is one of Poland's most important composers and one of the most well-known film music figures in Europe, best known for his extensive collaborations with prominent Polish artist Krzysztof Kieslowski.Perhaps one of the culminations of these activities was the production of music for the series Ten Commandments. Ten Commandments is a television series that aired in 1989. Ten commandments consist of ten one-hour parts. The name of the series is adapted From the Ten Commandments of Moses, and each episode narrates a kind of moral conflict or dilemma in an artistic way. (Episodes 5 and 6) of this series was released separately in the form of feature films.
However, a significant part of this quality was due to the music of Zbigniew Preisner; His style gave the series an atmosphere that we still remember with his music after many years. Deh Farman album consists of 25 relatively short tracks; Tracks that are mostly between 1 to 4 minutes and although the tracks are dedicated to one of the 10 episodes of the series. Composer and musician: Zbigniew Preisner
