FILM THE TREE at the PANORAMA EUROPE FILM FESTIVAL IN NEW YORK
Panorama Europe 2015, the seventh edition of this vital festival of new European cinema (formerly known as Disappearing Act), presented by Museum of the Moving Image, and the European Union National Institutes for Culture (EUNIC), returns to the Museum and the Bohemian National Hall with a slate of sixteen new features from May 29 through June 14.
The opening weekend includes special screenings of GODS (Poland, 2014), with director Lukasz Palkowski in person on Friday, May 29, and BOTA (THE WORLD) (Albania, 2014), with co-director Iris Elezi in person, on Sunday, May 31. Both screenings will be followed by conversations with the filmmakers, and receptions. Other festival titles include films from Austria, Belgium, Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Lithuania, Slovenia and Spain.
Slovenian film The Tree, directed by Sonja Prosenc, tells a story about a mother and her two sons who live as prisoners in their own home and wonder as to what it is about the outside world they fear? Told from three points of view, a riveting family tragedy gradually reveals itself in this acclaimed Slovenian chamber drama, which masterfully maintains an air of steadily mounting tension.
When: Saturday, May 30 at 4:00 p.m.
Where: Museum of the Moving Image, 36-01 35 Avenue in Astoria, NY
