La' os være / Leave Us Alone. 1975. DVD.

La' os være / Leave Us Alone. 1975. DVD.
 DK. Nogle 10-16-årige børn vil ikke snydes for deres ferie, selvom fritidshjemmets pædagoger strejker. Efter indbrud og andre ulovligheder tager de til en ubeboet ø i en stjålet båd. Da båden forsvinder, er de overladt til sig selv, og ferien udvikler sig til et mareridt. Gruppepres resulterer i grov vold, der sker ulykker, men de unge oplever også kærligheden.
 "La' os være", der syntes løst inspireret af William Goldings roman "Lord of the Flies"/"Fluernes herre", blev fra flere sider betegnet som alt for barsk, og filmen blev forbudt for børn under tolv år. Ophavsmændene hævdede, at den gav et realistisk billede af tidens børn og unge. Amatørskuespillerne kom fra en københavnsk ungdomsklub, og filmens dialog er improviseret. Filmen blev optakten til en bølge af ungdomsfilm med antiautoritær holdning gennem de følgende år.
EN. Leave Us Alone (Danish: La' os være) is a 1975 Danish drama film directed by Ernst Johansen and Lasse Nielsen. It was entered into the 25th Berlin International Film Festival. The plot is similar to that of Lord of the Flies: A group of teenagers are stranded on an uninhabited island, and an initially pleasant vacation turns into a nightmare.
A group from a ten to sixteen-year-old Danish educational center breaks the rules there and goes to an uninhabited island in a stolen boat. When the boat disappears, they are left to themselves, and their holiday turns into a nightmare: peer pressure, serious violence, accidents. But for some of them also an experience of love.

Y'aura t'il de la neige à Noël? / Will It Snow for Christmas? 1996.
 FR. Y aura-t-il de la neige à Noël? est un film français réalisé par Sandrine Veysset, sorti en 1996.
Une famille recomposée: un homme marié ailleurs et qui y retourne chaque soir, une femme qui a sept enfants de lui, la misère et la rudesse à la campagne et l'amour de cette femme pour ses enfants.
Cette femme et ses enfants échapperont-ils à la tyrannie de cet homme? Le fantôme de l'inceste rôde, entouré de violence. La solution pourrait être d'ouvrir le gaz. Mais la neige revient, avec l'espoir (fallacieux?) que "ça s'arrangera".
Description de la vie à la campagne dans une ferme de polyculture dans la région d’Avignon : famille nombreuse, travail des enfants, soumission au chef de famille.
EN. Will It Snow for Christmas? (original title: Y aura-t-il de la neige à Noël?) is a 1996 French drama film directed by Sandrine Veysset and produced by Humbert Balsan.
A woman and her seven children live on a farm in Southern France. In spite of the hard work and the mediocre accommodation, their life would be a happy one, but for one person: the owner of the farm an egotistic and authoritarian individual, who is also the lover of the woman and the father of all her children. The farmer handles them as his property, uses them as cheap labour to work in the fields, and denies them the right to leave the farm. It is only the love of the woman for her children that allows them to endure their situation; but even for her, disenchantment has set in.

Hundra svenska år. 1999. Episode 4.

Hundra svenska år. Avsnitt 4. De gamla och kloka må le, fallera (barn). 1999.
 SE. Hundra svenska år är en dokumentär-TV-serie, producerad av Olle Häger och redigerad av Kjell Tunegård med Hans Villius som berättare (han syns aldrig i bild - man hör bara hans röst). Serien består av åtta avsnitt, som vart och ett berättar Sveriges historia under 1900-talet ur ett särskilt perspektiv. I varje avsnitt visas för ämnet aktuella filmklipp, varvade med intervjuer av olika personer, som var med vid den tid som behandlas och som berättar minnen från den. På filmklippen från de tidigaste delarna av seklet, som från början inte innehåller något ljud, har man lagt på ljud, som skulle kunna passa in (exempelvis sorlande röster och ljudet av marscherande fötter vid bilder av ett första majtåg).
Avsnitt 4. De gamla och kloka må le, fallera (barn).
I detta avsnitt, som heter De gamla och kloka må le, fallera, handlar om barn. Passande avsnitt eftersom 1900-talet kallas barnens århundrade. Det var första gången barn fick vara barn och tonåringar kommer upp som fenomen. Kanske har vi idag gått för långt men det vet jag inte. Det har inte alltid varit lätt att vara barn. Farfar jobbade och pappa fick stryk i skolan. Världen har ändrat sig mycket sedan farfar var barn.
EN. Each episode tells the Swedish history of the 20th century from a different aspect. The first episode is about domestic politics, the second about fashion, the third about work and unemployment, the fourth about children and teenagers, the fifth about revolutionizing inventions, the sixth about vacation, the seventh about the royal family and the eighth about foreign politics.

Le grand départ / The Big Departure. 1972.

Le grand départ / The Big Departure. 1972.
 FR. Le Grand Départ est un film français réalisé par Martial Raysse, sorti en 1972.
Une fin de repas comme tant d'autres: un couple au regard vide devant un écran de télévision, plongé dans une digestion béate; puis, rupture avec l'arrivée brutale et rapide d'un jeune homme, et sa fuite en vélomoteur. Avec lui, le metteur en scène nous entraîne dans une "fête à l'envers"; l'ordre logique est renversé; les personnages changent d'identité; ils empruntent leurs masques tour à tour à des animaux (le chat Caïn), à des héros de la mythologie (Monsieur Nature), à des tableaux célèbres. Les allusions à la peinture sont nombreuses: Léonard de Vinci, Millet, Delacroix et même des contemporains: Labisse et, naturellement, Martial Raysse (le réalisateur est peintre). Les couleurs prennent celles des négatifs d'une photo: les roses buvard tournent subitement au vert, et les mauves délavés au bleu; les catégories, les déterminations ordinaires s'évanouissent dans des effets visuels fluides et inattendus. Ces créatures mystérieuses parlent du "grand départ" et cherchent le "paradis". Cette quête les conduit dans une sorte de communauté hyppie où le rêve a chassé la réalité. Ils se retrouvent sur un radeau soumis à des événements cosmiques indéfinissables; le cauchemar et le merveilleux deviennent inséparables. Les cataclysmes se succèdent; les fantasmes, les espoirs disparaissent, emportés dans un flot d'images évanescentes qui se dissolvent dans la confusion et se désagrègent dans l'horreur! Le grand départ? La quête du paradis? Avec qui? Vers quoi? Puisqu'il semble, "hélas, qu'il n'y ait pas d'autres paradis que celui où nous sommes".
EN. Not a good movie, though a prime example of audacious, rule-breaking cinema. It’s an early seventies French film shown almost entirely in negative exposure, which in itself makes it worth a watch.
LE GRAND DEPART (THE GRAND DEPARTURE; 1972) was the only feature directed by the famed French painter and sculptor Martial Raysse. In keeping with the revolutionary spirit of the time, LE GRAND DEPART has no plot to speak of and appears to have been largely made up on the spot. It shares a kinship with such films as BEGOTTEN (1990) and the X-rated short THE OPERATION (1995), both of which experimented with negative exposure (and far more effectively).
For decades LE GRAND DEPART was thought a “lost” film, but in late 2008 it made its DVD debut (in France), to alternately enchant and disappoint viewers anew.
We follow the cat man into a bizarre fantasy universe presented in negative exposure that reverses color values (black is white and vice versa) and written words. The cat man steals a car and then picks up a young girl he promises to take to “Heaven.” Heaven turns out to be a country chateau inhabited by several more animal mask wearing weirdoes.
There’s also a hippie cult frolicking in the woods nearby. The cult’s leader is an intense English speaking guru who prophecies a “Grand Departure” that will liberate his followers from their Earthly concerns.
Somewhere in here we learn the cat man represents death, as everyone he meets dies soon afterward--if he doesn’t do the killing himself. An example of this occurs when he callously molests a woman on a country road and leaves her for dead.
The cat man winds up on a “raft of freedom” manned by the guru and his followers. The raft becomes a sort of interstellar flying carpet that whisks them all through the cosmos. The trip is fun at first, with the cultists frolicking and playing ball with the Earth(!), but it eventually degenerates into a mass orgy…and the film finally returns to normal exposure.
The negative exposure works wonders, transforming drab Parisian locations into exotic dreamscapes. Of course it can’t do much for the camerawork, which is loose and amateurish; without the visual heightening this would likely play like a crappy home movie. Nor is the acting anything much; the only performer who makes any impression is Sterling Hayden as the cult leader.
 This film was created using technology Eastman Color Negative (ECN) is a photographic processing system created by Kodak in the 1950s for the development of monopack color negative motion picture film stock. Therefore, here is the original version of the film and the second version with inverted chroma.

Venus vs. Me. 2010.
 Marie is growing up but she mixes up growing and illness. Desperately she tries to handle her complex thoughts and doubts, unable to share any of them with her young and absent mother. Still, there seems to be one place where Marie finds solace, the swimming pool. Image and sound emerge us under water, in a deafness that individualizes colors and sounds as if we are listening to them for the first time. What's interesting about this short is that it doesn't really follow a straight and classical narrative but a puzzled and kaleidoscopical insight into the main character's head. Sound and image are used to enter Marie's complex inner world. Emotions fade giving the impression of reconciliation. The director manages to show us a powerful, unique and touching insight into the complexity of childhood. A very clever and poetic short!

 Off camera, 18 or so people, born in the mid-1930s, talk about being children born and raised on kibbutzim. They were to become "the new man:" equals, strong of body and spirit, communal with little personal ownership and a keen group consciousness. They tell their stories chronologically in four chapters: "separation" -- their early years living and sleeping apart from their parents, "group" -- pre-teen life as extended family, "elite" -- becoming young adults, and "a second life" -- adults looking back. Home movies and newsreels from the time fill the screen as they talk. Some remained to have children there. What is their assessment now? How are success and failure balanced?

À la place du coeur / Where the Heart Is. 1998.
FR. À la place du cœur est un film français réalisé par Robert Guédiguian, sorti en 1998.
Même s'ils sont jeunes, Clémentine et Bébé ont bien l'intention de se marier. Seulement Bébé est accusé d'avoir violé une jeune femme. Bébé, enfant adopté, noir de peau, a eu le malheur de croiser le regard bleu d'acier d'un policier raciste. C'est sur ses accusations qu'il est jeté en prison. Clémentine, comme tous les jours, lui rend visite en prison. Cette fois-ci, contrairement à son habitude, elle ne l'appelle pas Bébé, mais François. C'est qu'elle a quelque chose de grave à lui annoncer: elle est enceinte.
EN. A young girl falls in love with a black young man and gets pregnant,but the poor boy is accused of rape .The parents' attitude is diametrically opposite to that of the people of the thirties:this baby is a hope,the only hope in fact,the only thing that prevents the jailed man from complete despair.In a very moving sequence ,à la "it's a wonderful life" ,the father explains how the baby's life touches so many other lives.Life is not rosy for these modest people but their struggle is noble and endearing:Ascaride's trip to Sarajevo is the center of gravity of the movie:she displays so much love,understanding,humanity and hope against hope that the audience feels relieved when she finally pulls it off.

Anthology of short films. Part 41.
 And one more issue of a Anthology of short films, today`s number 41. Six short films, mostly fresh and dedicated to the problems of growing up and sexual orientation.
1. Reflection. 2014.
Tara, a young single mother, struggles to raise her gender non-conforming son. Increasingly aware of what it means to go against society’s “normal”, Tara finds it difficult to accept who her son wants to be.
Directors’ Statement:
“Despite confusion and frustration, a mother’s love trumps all fears.”
Reflection is an honest look at what it means to be a parent to LGBTQ youth.
Many emotional insecurity in LGBTQ adolescents are related to social stigma and negative societal responses, including the lack of family acceptance. And relationships between LGBTQ youth and their parents are often challenged. This film depicts a story of a mother and her enduring influence on her child’s life, and that despite her wishes for a “normal kid”, her love and understanding makes all the difference.

2. Oh, My God! 2008.
Anne Sewitsky's Oh My God! is a humorous observation of children's interpretations and experiences of sexuality.

3. Iver. 2004.
Short story about fairness and misuse of power and privileges seen from a child's perspective - told so that children (and adults) everywhere will understand.
Iver, beautifully portrayed by young Erik Næsbak Brenden, is a young boy who sneaks into the town's indoor public baths where everything he wants to do seems to be breaking the pool's rules and regulations, and sets off the sturdy life guard's whistle. Finally, he's shown to the showers. Iver's mother is late in picking him up, so he has to stay till after closing time and sneaks back into the pool. But he's not alone ...
Although the turning point of the film is a bit too quick and easy, the story is nicely told so that a child easily can follow it and understand - and reflect upon it. Well worth the nine minutes.
Director: Christian Lo.
Cast: Erik Næsbak Brenden, Anders Baasmo Christiansen, Ragnhild Seljeset Mykleset.
