  • Summerhill at 70. 1992.
     Summerhill School is an independent British boarding school that was founded in 1921 by Alexander Sutherland Neill with the belief that the school should be made to fit the child, rather than the other way around. It is run as a democratic community; the running of the school is conducted in the school meetings, which anyone, staff or pupil, may attend, and at which everyone has an equal vote. These meetings serve as both a legislative and judicial body. Members of the community are free to do as they please, so long as their actions do not cause any harm to others, according to Neill's principle "Freedom, not Licence." This extends to the freedom for pupils to choose which lessons, if any, they attend.
    SUMMERHILL AT 70 is an immersive look at the free-range children who take charge of their lives at the highly influential experimental school.
    An insight into the unorthodox Suffolk boarding school where lessons are optional, swearing is common, and it's the pupils who decide the rules.
    Summerhill, the first and last bastion of totally permissive, anti-authoritarian, free education, has been going strong for over seven decades. This program from 1992 shows how Summerhill children, left entirely to their own devices, behave; it looks at whether they spurn or take advantage of the academic education offered; whether a tribunal can be effective when the vote of a five-year-old carries as much weight as that of the headmistress.
    Directors: Peter Getzels, Harriet Gordon Getzels.

Summer vacation starts: Anne's parents leave her alone with the servants for two months at the family chateau. She and Lore are free to make mischief. They are cruel as well and play games of seduction. As summer ends and fall term begins, things come to a head.

  • Ганс Рёкле и Чёрт / Hans Rockle und der Teufel.

    EN. This movie is based on a contemporary children's book, not the usual Grimm Brothers stock. Hans Röckle is a puppeteer, inventor, blacksmith and more. He is challenged by the Devil (in almost a dozen fancy costumes) who offers him even more inventiveness, against his soul should he ever make money with an invention, build something twice, or cease inventing for 7*7 hours.
    DE. Defa-Märchenfilm über einen Puppenspieler und fantasievollen Erfinder namens Röckle, der eines Tages unheimlichen Besuch bekommt. Der Teufel Flammfuß erscheint in seiner Werkstatt und macht Röckle ein verlockendes Angebot: Flammfuß will ihm magische Kräfte verleihen – doch wenn es Röckle nicht gelingen sollte, dieses Geschenk zu nutzen, um binnen sieben mal sieben Stunden etwas Neuartiges zu erfinden, gehört seine Seele dem Teufel.
    Röckle lässt sich auf den Pakt ein und nutzt die Chance, Dinge zu erschaffen, die den Menschen helfen und das Leben erleichtern. So erfindet er für eine Näherin eine Nadel, die von alleine näht und für einen Bauern eine Flöte, mit der sich Regen herbeispielen lässt. Allerdings zeigt sich schon bald, dass diese wunderbaren Erfindungen den Menschen nicht nur Segen bringen: So kürzt etwa der Manufaktur-Besitzer den Näherinnen die Löhne, während der Großgrundbesitzer dem Bauer die Flöte nimmt, um mit ihrer Zauberkraft seine eigenen Böden zu bewässern. Schließlich findet Röckle einen Ausweg: Mit Hilfe eines neu erfundenen Fernrohrs schaut er in die Zukunft – und erkennt, dass seine magischen Objekte dort am besten aufgehoben sind. Mit seinen neuen Zauberstiefeln macht er sich am Ende auf den Weg dorthin.

  • Olivier Smolders. Spiritual Exercises. Part-1.
     This special collection features 10 spellbinding short works from Belgian experimental filmmaker Olivier Smolders, including "Adoration" (1987), "Mort a Vignole" (1998), "L'Amateur" (1997) and "La Philosophie Dans Le Boudoir" (1991). "Pensees et Visions D'une Tête Coupée" (1991), "Ravissements" (1991), "Point de Fuite" (1988), "L'Art D'Aimer" (1985), "Neuvaine" (1984) and "Seuls" (1989) round out the sampler.
    5 most interesting films presented below.
    1. Adoration.
    A young man films his love for a young woman.
    "Adoration" is loosely based on Issei Sagawa's cannibalistic murder case. In 1981 he murdered and cannibalized a Dutch woman named Renée Hartevelt. After his release Sagawa has become a minor celebrity in Japan and has made a living through the public interest on his crime. A young Japanese man invites beautiful French student to his apartment. She reads some poetry. Suddenly he shoots her in the back, dismembers her body and cannibalizes her tasty flesh. Experimental and gruesome short which looks almost like a true crime documentary. The use of silence and master shots certainly enhances truly chilling atmosphere of gloom.
    Cast: Takashi Matsuo, Catherine Aymerie.
    Belgium, France, 1986.
    Language: French.
    Subtitles: Russian.
    2. Point De Fuite.
    A new teacher comes to class to teach a lesson on a complicated math theorem. The class is waiting completely nude and catches her off guard. She takes off her clothes before the beginning of her lesson. During the lesson, the students put their clothes back on and take away her clothes, as she is concentrated solely on the theorem. Upon finishing, she is embarrassed that they are clothed and she is left naked, but there is now someone at the door. The class ask the unknown to come in, and they find a naked teacher but clothed students. Inspired by a mathematical rhetoric.
    Cast: Catherine Aymerie, François Galland, Stéphanie Dessens, Sarah Lefévre, Valerie De Wilde, Catherine Van Hauwermeiren.
    Belgium, 1988.
    Language: French.
    Subtitles: Russian.
    3. Seuls.
    Screaming children, their non-standard behavior, plot and dialogue are absent.
    Belgium, 1989.
    4. Pensées et visions d'une tête coupée.

  • Первый опыт / Tendre adolescente / Zarte Knospen / La prima esperienza.
     An older adolescent girl has a number of sexual adventures in France, then moves on to Montreal and New York, there finding erotic pleasure, love and danger. Flashbacks place our heroine at approximately eight years of age and perhaps suggest that her promiscuous nature has been inspired by her father's incestuous advances towards her. Think of a mix between Daddy and Felicity to get the idea.

  • Un'ombra nell'ombra / Ring of Darkness. 1979.
     IT. Un'ombra nell'ombra è un film del 1979, diretto da Pier Carpi, tratto dal romanzo omonimo scritto dallo stesso regista.
    Carlotta, Raffaella, Lena e Agata si consacrano a Lucifero, che impedisce loro di avere rapporti sessuali. Dalle unioni infernali nascono Annalisa, figlia di Lena, e Daria, figlia di Carlotta.
    Annalisa vive come una tragedia l'essere figlia del demonio e si suicida. Daria, invece, impara a convivere con i suoi terribili poteri e si compiace della sua ascendenza demoniaca. Un esorcista tenta di combatterla, aiutato da Carlotta, pentita, ma senza esito: Daria si dirige verso San Pietro, per sfidare il papa e ottenere il potere assoluto sulle anime.
    EN. Young women join a Satanic cult surrendering their will and bodies entirely to the Devil himself. Years later when they're older women, Carlotta, starts to lose control of her 13 year old daughter Daria, who starts to develop strong powers of her own, aware of her powers and with extreme devotion to The Devil she starts speaking and behaving in strange ways like casting spells and harming people with no remorse whatsoever. And her powers seem to increase exponentially every single day. In her desperation, Carlotta and some of her friends enlist the help of a priest with a crisis of faith to help them perform a strange ritual that will hopefully vanquish the evil out of Daria once and for all.

  • Юные Афродиты / Mikres Afrodites / Young Aphrodites. 1963.
     Parallel stories of Eros set in 200 B.C. Nomadic shepherds, plagued by drought, happen on a fishing encampment with plentiful fresh water. The local men are away but will return when it rains; the shepherds stay to refresh their flock until the rain comes. A shepherd lad and a local girl, both on the verge of puberty, start a mating dance. Also, one of the shepherds approaches a beautiful local woman, inviting her to sleep with him. How will she respond? She's married, her husband at sea for the week. Is love forever or temporary? A subtext dramatizes the capture of fish, birds, foxes, and other animals: their fates seem arbitrary.

  • Putkinotko / Odemarkens barn. 1954.

    Teuvo Tuliolta vaikutteita ottaneiden melodraamojen ja sotilasfarssien jälkeen Roland af Hällström ohjasi neljä merkittävää klassikkokirjallisuuden filmatisointia, joita voi pitää ohjaaja-käsikirjoittajan päätöinä. Ensimmäisenä valmistui Joel Lehtosen Putkinotkon (1920) elokuvasovitus, jota seurasi Putkinotkoa monessa muistuttanut Ilmari Kianto -filmatisointi Ryysyrannan Jooseppi (1955), F. E. Sillanpään samannimisen kuuluisimman teoksen filmatisointi Poika eli kesäänsä (1955) ja vielä Minna Canth -sovitus Lain mukaan (1956). Näistä Putkinotko ja Ryysyrannan Jooseppi nousevat omaan luokkaansa.
    Viime vuosisadan alussa lähellä Savonlinnaa asuvan Käkriäisen perheen elämästä yhden päivän ajalta kertova Putkinotko on tarina rähjäisistä, köyhistä ja sivistymättömistä metsäläisistä. Juutas (Matti Lehtelä), perheen pää, on ulkonäöltään koko perheestä kaikkein räjähtänein, niin likaisen näköinen, että melkein hänet voi haistaakin. Valtaosan vuodesta Juutas on saamaton vätys, joka kyllä rakastaa vaimoaan (Elvi Saarnio) ja eritoten monia lapsiaan, mutta viihtyy parhaiten yksin ja omilla reissuillaan.
    Käkriäisen perheen elanto tulee viinan trokaamisesta, mutta rähjäisen mökkinsä he ovat saaneet vuokralle siitä hyvästä, että huolehtivat tilasta ja samassa pihapiirissä sijaitsevasta päärakennuksesta, jonne äveriäs kaupunkilaismies Muttinen (Pentti Viljanen) aina silloin tällöin saapuu kesää viettämään – tänään vieläpä fiinin naisystävänsä (Hillevi Rautio) kanssa. Juutas ei ole pestistä erityisen innoissaan, koska pelkää häätöä eikä muutenkaan tunnu olevan halukas tekemään työtä toisen hyväksi.
    Putkinotkon päivä on toimintaa täynnä. Muttisen visiittiä ennen vaimo ja lapset ehtivät käydä kaupungissa ja Juutas jauho-ostoksilla, myöhemmin illalla käydään saunomassa ja vielä sen jälkeen laskemassa verkkoja. Pelkästään Juutaksen jauhokaupoista on saatu hyvin yksinkertaisella tavalla tehtyä loistavaa viihdettä, eikä vaimon asiointi apteekissa ole yhtään sen tylsempää katseltavaa. Kaupungissa käydessään vaimo yrittää yhdessä veljensä (Ari Laine) kanssa miettiä, miten Juutaksen saisi suostumaan pontikankeittoon. 
    Director: Roland af Hällström.
