Zgodna, mlada glumica Sali Oâ€™Hara dolazi sa svojom amaterskom trupom u Monteblanski pandan crnogorskog Cetinja â€“ Kastelano. Tu zapada za oko obojici prijestonaslednika, Danilu i Mirku.
Ljubavne spletke vladajuÄ‡e elite i prateÄ‡e intrige navodno je trebalo da iskarikiraju Crnogorce.Â Potomci knjaÅ¾evske loze iz Crne Gore, pobunili su se i 1930. god. dobili sudsko poravnanje od 4000 dolara i garanciju da se Danilova postojbina neÄ‡e zvati Monte Blanko veÄ‡ MarÅ¡ovija. Nominalno u filmu se nigde ne pominje â€žMontenegroâ€ veÄ‡ imaginarni â€žMonte Blancoâ€ ali su i pored ove provizorne permutacije imena izdanaka kraljevske loze: Milena, Mirko, Nikola, Danilo, noÅ¡nje i opÅ¡ti kontekst viÅ¡e nego indikativni. Tako ovaj film, koji je privukao ogroman broj gledalaca i imao znaÄajan prihod, nisu imali priliku da vide gledaoci u naÅ¡im krajevima.
U ovom raskoÅ¡no produciranom filmu (setove radio reÅ¾iser najboljeg Tarzana sa Vajsmilerom â€“ Sedrik Gibons) meÄ‘u statistima se pojavljuje i buduÄ‡i superstar Klark Gejbl.
Film se zasniva na istoimenoj opereti Franza Lehara i ovo je njena druga filmska adaptacija.Â
Ulaz za sve projekcije je slobodanÂ

I am happy to announce the premiere of my recent film installation OMEN will be hosted by Alchemy Film & Moving Image Festival in Hawick, Scotland. The event will take place from 2nd till 6th of March 2017. Full Programme here:
Over 60 filmmakers and artists from around the world will be landing in Hawick on March 2nd for the seventh edition of Alchemy Film and Moving Image Festival. Screening over 120 films at Hawickâ€™s Tower Mill, with 23 world premieres, 12 moving image installations around the town, expanded cinema performances and a filmmaker symposium, Alchemy promises to transform Hawick into a melting pot of creativity for some of the worldâ€™s most imaginative moving image artists.
Highlights include the Scottish premiere of Rachel Macleanâ€™s It’s What’s Inside That Counts. Maclean has been chosen to represent Scotland at the Venice Biennale in …2017, in a major new exhibition curated by Alchemy Film & Arts. Her work powerfully satirises the fears and desires of our contemporary zeitgeist, cloaked in a super-saturated aesthetic of fairy-tale consumer culture. Maclean will be present for a Q&A, discussing the evolution of her work and the themes of her new Venice commission.
Another sprinkling of Venetian magic comes from Alchemyâ€™s tribute to the late John Berger, the Booker-prize-winning author of Ways of Seeing. In a special screening of his 1989 film Play Me Something, also featuring Tilda Swinton and Margaret Bennett, Berger narrates a politicised Venetian romance between a farm worker and a young bohemian woman, to a bemused waiting room of misfits in a desolate aiport lounge on the Scottish island of Barra. Directed by Tim Neat, present for a Q&A.
In perhaps the Worldâ€™s first ever surrealist experimental opera-musical, the UK premiere of Warsaw-based Karolina Bregula’s The Tower, follows the fate of a group of well-meaning community activists who decide that the solution to their social problems lies in building an enormous tower of sugar. With music by Glasgow based Ela Orleans, their utopian dreams inevitably lead toward more dystopian realities.
Expanding the festivalâ€™s ethos of conversational encounter into a fifth day, British artist Andrew KÃ¶tting will lead a raggle-taggle eight mile procession of artists and miscreants towards the Hermitage Castle and the spectral vision that is Mary Queen of Scots. Reuniting the ghosts of King Harold and his hand fast wife Edith Swan Neck, KÃ¶ttingâ€™s film-walk culminates in a screening of Edith Walks at Hermitage Hall.
For the closing film, Alchemy hosts the European premiere of Incident Reports by Canadian auteur Mike Hoolboom. An episodic love letter to an unseen therapist, Hoolboomâ€™s film is a luminous celebration of humanity, traversing memory, forgetting, image making and gender identity, while touching the heart of what it is to be in the world. It is an essay film that leads us joyfully to an ultimately life affirming conclusion: â€œLoving would be easy if your colours were like my dreams: Red, gold, and green.â€
As part of Open Art Academy I am showing a film installation , OMEN is shown in the Black Box at Gallery Kit, Opening today Friday 11 November at 6pm .
