Ana Nojoom bent alasherah wamotalagah / I Am Nojoom, Age 10 and Divorced. 2014.

Ana Nojoom bent alasherah wamotalagah / I Am Nojoom, Age 10 and Divorced. 2014.
 I Am Nojoom, Age 10 and Divorced is a 2014 Yemeni drama film directed by Khadija al-Salami. It was selected as the Yemeni entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 89th Academy Awards, the first time that Yemen had submitted a film for consideration. However, it was not nominated. The film is based on the story of Nujood Ali, who sought divorce from her abusive husband at age 10.
A true story about a ten-year-old girl, forced to marry a man twenty years her senior. She tries to free herself from this violent relationship by filing for divorce at a Yemeni court. Khadija Al-Salami is Yemen’s first female filmmaker and belongs to a new generation of Arab women filmmakers whose work is currently screened in EYE.
The opening film in EYE’s programme is an adaptation of the international bestseller about 10-year old Nujood, who made international headlines in 2009 when she protested against her arranged marriage. Nujood became the figurehead of the fight against child brides in Yemen. According to figures of the United Nations and the Yemeni government, some 50% of Yemeni girls are married before they are 18, while 15% is married before the age of 15.
The girls are taken away from their families with the promise of a moderate dowry and the argument that there will be ‘one mouth less to feed’. Nojoom’s husband, however, forces his young bride to do hard work and rapes her every night – a legitimate and acceptable act in the eyes of the majority, but not for Nojoom.
Director: Khadija Al-Salami.
Cast: Adnan Alkhader, Rana Mohammed, Reham Mohammed.

The people of the village would tell him tales of a mermaid, who had no choice but to abandon her son. Once we arrived on location, we connected instantly with Man, a boy who had a story very close to our vision. Son of Samila became a hybrid film, a mix between fiction and reality, just like our character’s world.”

All'asilo del ragazzino conosce Valeria che per lui lascia il fidanzato.

When his next romance with Valerie (Ornella Muti), his son's daycare worker, threatens that custody, he responds by emasculating himself with a knife.

 Frau Born ist Ende dreißig, von Beruf Tankwartin, sie ist geschieden und Mutter von zwei Kindern. Ihr Sohn Micha ist zehn Jahre alt und hat sich zur “Freude” seiner Mutter einen Namen als junger “Erfinder” gemacht: er erfindet Rauchpatronen und ahnliche Sachen, die Meta Born fur absolut uberflussig halt. Aber auch mit ihrer Tochter Susi gibt es “Stress”: sie ist 17 Jahre alt, sehr hubsch und blond, begeisterte Tragerin von Minirocken, die ihr sehr gut stehen. Auch Susi hat es von Zeit zu Zeit mit dem “Erfinden”, denn sie spricht von “Freundinnen”, mit denen sie ins Kino oder zum Bummeln geht, wahrend sie sich in Wirklichkeit mit “Mannlichkeiten” abgibt. Meta Born geht es im Verhaltnis zu ihrer Tochter wie anderen Muttern: fur sie ist die 17jahrige noch ein Kind. Als sie endlich begreift, dass dies nicht mehr so ist, ist sie zunachst ratlos. So sucht sie die Unterstutzung ihres Sohnes, der aus Susi “aufpassen” soll. Offensichtlich geht seine diesbezugliche Aktivitat aber in die falsche Richtung, denn er betatigt sich als “Amor” und organisiert ein Treffen seiner Schwester mit Dieter Bellmann, einem Pfleger des Berliner Tierparks.

 DE. Paul, genannt „Männchen“, lebt mit seiner Tochter, genannt „Herzblatt“, zusammen, die er nach dem Tod seiner Frau allein großgezogen hat. Den Anleitungen eines Buches von Dr. Seebauer gemäß hat er Herzblatt beigebracht, ihrem Körper nicht schamhaft gegenüberzustehen. Auch die Nacktheit eines Menschen ist normal, hat Herzblatt schon in jungen Jahren erfahren. Dies führte bei ihr zu einer Fixierung auf den Vater, der ihr Vater, Mutter, Freund und Spielgefährte zugleich ist. Selbst jetzt, wo Herzblatt weit in der Pubertät sein sollte, badet sie noch gemeinsam mit ihrem Vater, wobei beide Spaß am Seifenschaumschlagen haben, und bewegt sich ungeniert nackt in der Wohnung und auf der Dachterrasse, weil sie sich ihrer Wirkung auf Männer nicht bewusst ist. Paul sucht sich Rat bei Dr. Seebauer, der vorschlägt, für Herzblatt einen jungen Mann zu suchen, der ihre Aufmerksamkeit von Paul zu ihrem Partner lenken soll.

Daddy. 1973. And Bonus.

Папочка / Daddy. 1973. And Bonus.
 Two films, fiction and documentary, from and about Niki De Saint Phalle, the painter of theatre, sculptor, filmmaker and creative person.
1. Daddy. 1973.
A fantasy about a woman’s attempts to exorcise the influence of her sexually domineering father.
Peter Whitehead and Niki de Saint Phalle's 1973 film Daddy (UK) was an angry retort to oppressive regimes, particularly that most destructive one of childhood sexual abuse. But its power lies equally in its ambivalence and, in the end, its profound negativity. While Whitehead and de Saint Phalle resolutely sought to free representations of women from the triad of narcissism, masochism, and passivity, insisting that the feminine is home to the full range of aggressive and sexual drives, they also stripped away even the most facile hopes for a better world. In this, Whitehead and de Saint Phalle joined other creative radicals of the 1960s and 1970s (such as poets like Sylvia Plath and Anne Sexton, who wrote eloquently about both female resistance and resignation in the face of paternal sexual abuse) in presenting a pessimistic account of late modernity.
In the section entitled "The Monster," Daddy sexually abuses the Daughter during a game of Blind Man. The daughter's response is ambivalent: she wants to scream; she promises to "lead [Daddy] to many countries" and to "conquer the world" for him; she commands "Down on your knees Daddy, say please say please ... Dirty dirty Daddy." The Daughter's abuse is symptomatic of the Daddy's cruelty generally: Daddy also beats and rapes the Mother. When the Daughter dons her Mother's wig, Daddy punishes her by locking her in a dark cupboard.
Director: Niki De Saint Phalle, Peter Whitehead.

Niki de Saint Phalle: Wer ist das Monster - du oder ich? / Résumé de Niki de Saint Phalle : Qui est le monstre, toi ou moi ? / Niki de Saint Phalle: Who Is the Monster, You or Me? 1996.

EN. In the sixties the painter and sculptor Niki de Saint Phalle started her career with shooting paintings, reliefs that were fired at with paint bags. She became famous and popular for her Nanas, colorful sculptures of big and cheerful women, and for the cooperation with Jean Tinguely. The frame of this film is a tour through her tarot garden in Tuscany.
FR. S'appuyant sur les souvenirs de Niki de Saint Phalle et des images d'archives très swinging sixties, une plongée en couleurs dans l'univers de l'artiste. «Je cherchais qui était la femme...» Marie-Agnès Fal de Saint Phalle, surnommée Niki par sa mère, n'a cessé d'explorer ses démons, se réjouissant dès ses débuts d'ulcérer son aristocratique famille et de dénoncer un père incestueux dans un film déjanté, Daddy.

 Maria suffers from Alzheimer's disease. Luis, Maria's fifteen-year-old grandson, doesn't say very much either; he shuts himself off in his own silent world to escape his parent's marital crisis, spending time instead picking up stray cats and dogs off the street. His father, Miguel, wants to put a stop to this eccentric behavior, but his protective mother Alice indulges him. Nevertheless, the animals begin to appear at home in increasing numbers, making life complicated for the family in their flat.

Les joyeuses colonies de vacances. 1979.

Веселые летние каникулы / Les joyeuses colonies de vacances. 1979.
 La vie quotidienne mouvementée d'une colonie de vacances établie dans un somptueux château et son parc. Le châtelain a eu l'idée de sous-louer ses locaux pour entretenir le château, mais regrette chaque jour un peu plus cette décision en voyant les dégâts causés par les enfants. Ces derniers sont chapeautés par une jeune équipe de moniteurs, un directeur plutôt cool, et un intendant au contraire un peu coincé. Entre les histoires d'amour des enfants, les filles amoureuses de leurs monos, les batailles de polochons, les journées à la piscine, les bêtises des uns et des autres, les courriers et les coups de fil des parents inquiets, il fleure sur cette colonie comme un parfum de bonheur...
