    Anthology of short films. Part 11.
     Another one, this time the eleventh in a row, is a collection of short films from around the world, of different genres and years of release. This archive contains 7 minifilms.
    1. Der Aufreißer / The Pick-Up Artist.
    This German language Indie Film is about a man who awakens in a woman's apartment being questioned by her Pre-teen daughter regarding his intentions towards her mother. The ensuing very uncomfortable confrontation and question and answer sessions between the very resourceful daughter and this increasingly eager to leave good looking Casanova become the centerpiece of this very clever short film which should serve as a warning to everyone seeking one night stands!

    Another, the tenth in a row, a collection of short films, this time very short, only 2 films.
    1. Vkhodyashchaya v more. 1965.
    This film is a thesis work by Leonid Osyka. He was publicly accused of "existentialism", "decadence", "borrowing from the "new wave". The director, despite the opinion of the leadership, did not back down from the film and refused to redo it. "Vkhodyashchaya v more" (Entering the sea) is a short poetic parable about the beginning of human life. A little girl played on the seashore, and it stretched before her as a free poetic element of being, and on the beach, next to her, there was an adult life, life, everyday life, prose...
    Directors: Leonid Osyka, Vladimir Saveliev.
    Cast: Tanya Malysh, Antonina Leftiy, Zoya Nedbay, Gennadiy Yukhtin.
    USSR, Kinostudiya Dovzhenko, 1965.

Charlie attempts to make Natalie's last day one to remember.
    Director: Ryan Hanson.
    Cast: Jacob Ahearn, Meagan Brodie, Ruben de Baat (Charlie), Tess McManus, Justin Millar, Olexandra Pruchnicky, Matthew Rogers.

     The new, eighth in a row, collection of short films from around the world is ready. Today, this issue can be titled as "Cat in the bag." Why so - everything is simple: there will be no description of these ten films, only screenshots that are in complete disarray, purely for fun, but this is enough to understand what is going on in these mini-films.
    So 10 short films are ready for viewing.

  • Anthology of short films. Part 3.
    The third edition of the collection of short films of independent directors from around the world, of different genres, 5 short films.
    1. No Bikini.
    Robin takes us back to that glorious time when she was seven years old and shows us how it defined her for the rest of her life.
    Director: Claudia Morgado Escanilla.

    2. Att doda ett barn.
    It is a short story about a little boy who is about to borrow some sugar from their neighbors. When he is crossing the road he suddenly hit by a SAAB which is driving very fast.

    Sweden, 2003.
    3. Blodsøstre / Blood Sisters.
    "Blood Sisters", Danish filmmaker Louise Friedberg's sophomore short film, is the kind of flick that you simply can't take your eyes off of. It's a relatively simple story that has been played out time and time again: a young girl feels threatened by her best friend's new friend/neighbour, jealousy brews, and tempers flare. A slow but steady pace brings to mind late 20th century minimalist music, creeping along with perseverance and contemplative awe. The aura is distinctly Scandinavian: simultaneously chilly and warm, dominated by icy whites, whimsical laces and the splash of blood red. But what makes Friedberg's film resonate so loudly is how straight she plays archetype. There is no homage, no winking at the audience. Just bravura filmmaking that pulses with beauty, tension and breathtaking performances.
    Director: Louise Friedberg.
    Cast: Malou Z. Bruun, Angela Bundalovic, Liv Corfixen.
    Denmark, 2006.
    4. Buldermanden.
    Director:  Jesper W. Nielsen.

  • Sheena / Sheena, Queen of the Jungle. 1984. HD.
     Sheena, also known as Sheena: Queen of the Jungle, is a 1984 fantasy-adventure film based on a comic-book character that first appeared in the late 1930s, Sheena, Queen of the Jungle.
    A hybrid of action-adventure and soap opera–style drama, Sheena was shot on location in Kenya. It tells the tale of a female version of Tarzan who was raised in the fictional African country of Tigora by the equally fictional Zambouli tribe.
    The film starred Tanya Roberts, Ted Wass, and Trevor Thomas. It was directed by John Guillermin and written by Lorenzo Semple, Jr., who had previously collaborated on the 1976 remake of King Kong.
    Released by Columbia Pictures on August 17, 1984, Sheena bombed in theaters and was nominated for five Golden Raspberry Awards including Worst Picture, Worst Actress (Tanya Roberts), Worst Director, Worst Screenplay and Worst Musical Score, but it reportedly did find some cult success on home video and DVD.
    Sheena's white parents are killed while on Safari. She is raised by the mystical witch woman of an African tribe. When her foster mother is framed for the murder of a political leader, Sheena and a newsman, Vic Casey are forced to flee while pursued by the mercenaries hired by the real killer, who hopes to assume power. Sheena's ability to talk to the animals and knowledge of jungle lore give them a chance against the high tech weapons of the mercenaries.
    Director: John Guillermin.
    Cast: Tanya Roberts, Ted Wass, Donovan Scott, Elizabeth of Toro, France Zobda, Trevor Thomas, Clifton Jones, John Forgeham, Errol John, Sylvester Williams, Michael Shannon.
    UK, USA, 1984.
    Language: English, Russian.

  • Outcast of the Islands. 1951.
     Outcast of the Islands is a 1951 film directed by Carol Reed based on Joseph Conrad's novel An Outcast of the Islands. The film features Robert Morley, Trevor Howard, Ralph Richardson, and Wendy Hiller.
    Peter Willems (Trevor Howard), a selfish and ambitious man, is accused of stealing in his position as manager of a shipping port operation near Singapore. After he is dismissed for his misconduct he reacquaints himself with the trading ship Capt. Lingard (Ralph Richardson) who befriended him as a 12-year-old boy. Lingard agrees to help Willems regain his reputation by taking him to a trading village located up a difficult-to-navigate channel near the coast of Batam. Lingard's son-in-law, Elmer Almeyer (Robert Morley), operates a trading operation for Capt. Lingard in the village. Lingard asks Almeyer to take Willems under his wing and teach him the business. While Lingard is away on one of his sea trips, Willems abuses his trust, seduces the village chieftain's daughter Aissa (Kerima), attempts to steal Almeyer's business operation, humiliates Almeyer before the villagers, and shares the navigation secrets of the channel with an Arab trader who competes with Capt. Lingard. Lingard returns to discover the mess Willems has made and confronts Willems — who has now been condemned by the villagers because of the shame he brought to the frail and dying chieftain. He abandons Willems to live in isolation and exile.

  • Pippi Långstrump / Pippi Longstocking. 1969. The best episodes.
     SE. Pippi Långstrump är en svensk TV-serie från 1969 i 21 delar, baserad på Astrid Lindgrens barnböcker om Pippi Långstrump. Det var till största delen inspelad i och nära Visby och med barnskådespelarna Inger Nilsson ("Pippi"), Maria Persson ("Annika") och Pär Sundberg ("Tommy") i de centrala rollerna. På grund av svensk-tysk samproduktion deltog ett antal tyska skådespelare, vars röster dubbades till svenska i den svenska visningen.
    1973 presenterades en omklippt version av TV-materialet som långfilmen Här kommer Pippi Långstrump. 1970 års Pippi Långstrump på de sju haven är dock en separat produktion med i stort sett samma skådespelare.
    Pippi Långstrump bor ensam i Villa Villekulla eftersom hennes mamma är ängel i himmelen och hennes pappa kung på en Söderhavsö. Syskonen Tommy och Annika blir hennes vänner och de 21 olika TV-avsnitten handlar om deras äventyr ihop.
    EN. Pippi Longstocking (Swedish: Pippi Långstrump) is a Swedish TV series based on Astrid Lindgren's Pippi Longstocking children's books. The show ran for 21 episodes, the first episode being broadcast 8 February 1969 on Sveriges Television.
    The series' theme song, "Here Comes Pippi Longstocking" ("Här Kommer Pippi Långstrump") was composed by Jan Johansson (in one of his last works, before his death a year before the series aired), with lyrics by Astrid Lindgren. The song was sung by series star Inger Nilsson.
    A mysterious young girl, Pippi Longstocking, moves into the abandoned Villa Villekulla. The redheaded Pippi, living alone but for a monkey called Mr. Nilsson and her horse Little Old Man, befriends two neighboring children, Tommy and Annika. Soon inseparable companions, the three youngsters embark upon a series of colorful escapades, which turn the small Swedish town upside down. Local busybody Miss Prysselius schemes to have Pippi put into a children's home, and sets the town's bumbling cops Kling and Klang on her with riotous results!

  •  Yaaba / Grandmother. 1989.
     Yaaba is a 1989 Burkinabé drama film written, produced, and directed by Idrissa Ouedraogo. It won the Sakura Gold prize at the 1989 Tokyo Film Festival. The film was selected as the Burkinabé entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 62nd Academy Awards, but was not accepted as a nominee.
    The film was the subject of a short documentary Parlons Grand-mère, which was shot during the film's production by Djibril Diop Mambéty.
    In a small African village, Bila (Noufou Ouédraogo), a ten-year-old boy, makes friends with an old woman called Sana (Fatimata Sanga), who has been accused of witchcraft by her village, and has become a social outcast. Only Bila is respectful of her, and calls her "Yaaba" (Grandmother).
    When Bila's cousin, Nopoko (Roukietou Barry), falls ill, a medicine man insists that Sana has stolen the girl's soul. Sana undergoes a long and gruelling but ultimately successful journey to find a medicine to save Nopoko's life, but is still treated as a witch.
    After Sana dies, the real reason why she is hated in the village is uncovered, but the love and wisdom she invested in Bila and Nopoko lives on.
    Director: Idrissa Ouedraogo.
    Cast: Fatimata Sanga, Noufou Ouédraogo, Roukietou Barry, Adama Ouédraogo, Amadé Toure, Sibidou Ouédraogo, Adame Sidibe, Rasmané Ouédraogo, Kinda Moumouni, Assita Ouedraogo.
