The film by Sara Maino “Marine Elegy” has been shortlisted for IINFF İstanbul International Nartugan Film Festival. The film got through a selection of 2124 short films and will be screened in Istanbul on December 13-16 2021. Istanbul International Nartugan Film Festival (IINFF) is a festival that welcomes all communities, old and new, that form the sun ritual cultures. Language and Social Identity are two of the most fundamental elements of this culture. With the help of cinema, the organisers desire to create a cultural unity between the people who speak the first Sun language Turkish and its dialects, and other languages.
We take a road through the favourite verses of great poets – alchemists from different centuries, as sparkles. you just need to listen – and we will hear the innermost secrets, learn about the muses of Sappho, Francesco Petrarca, Dante Alighieri, Johann Wolfgang Goethe, Marina Tsvetaeva, Igor Severyanin, Joseph Brodsky. The answers to all our questions are stored in encrypted messages of poets, they contain the whole palette of human feelings, relationships and experiences – love and grief, resentment and forgiveness, sin and temptation. You can overcome whole distances without fear, and stop 5 millimetres from your fate – this is the discovery we want to share in our new performance through their voices and ours.
A tale of two will be followed by a screening of ‘Marine Elegy’, a short film by sara maino.
