L'Enfer d'Henri-Georges Clouzot (Henri-George Clouzot's Inferno)

L'Enfer d'Henri-Georges Clouzot (Henri-George Clouzot's Inferno) (2010)

Starring: Romy Schneider, Berenice Bejo, Serge Reggiani

In the 1950s and '60s, Henri-Georges Clouzot was one of France's most acclaimed and successful filmmakers, a director who enjoyed massive international success with Le Salaire de la Peur (aka The Wages of Fear) and Les Diaboliques, and his gift for generating tension and suspense onscreen earned him the nickname "the French Hitchcock." In 1963, Clouzot began work on a project called "L'Enfer" (aka "The Inferno"), a tale of jealousy that leads to madness, and the filmmaker was promised all the time and resources he needed for the picture. However, while the director was meticulously prepared when shooting began, after only three weeks the production was halted and never resumed; Clouzot would complete only two more films before his death in 1977. Filmmakers Serge Bromberg and Ruxandra Medrea try to answer the question of what happened to a project so full of promise in L'Enfer d'Henri-Georges Clouzot (aka Henri-Georges Clouzot's Inferno), a documentary which looks into the shadowy history of this lost film. Including interviews with members of the cast and crew (among them production assistant Costa-Gavras, who went on to a distinguished career of his own) and excerpts from the surviving footage (seen by the public for the first time here), the film tells the tale of how a great director ran afoul of his own demons while making a movie about a troubled man. Henri-Georges Clouzot's Inferno received its world premiere at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival.

Romanian director Cristian Nemescu's comedy California Dreamin' (aka Nesfarsit, 2007) unfolds against the backdrop of the Kosovo War, circa 1999. A NATO train rolls through a Romanian hamlet, transporting a plethora of weapons across the country -- without official documents, and equipped only with the verbal consent of the Romanian authorities.

Romeo & Juliet in Yiddish

Romeo & Juliet in Yiddish (2011)

Starring:

The play Romeo and Juliet has been translated around the world. Now this gritty, funny new feature film retells William Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet" in Yiddish. A middle-aged ER nurse, Ava, in graduate school-and bitterly lapsed observant Jew-undertakes a Yiddish translation of Shakespeare's great classic, Romeo and Juliet. Meanwhile, her houseguest, also a Hasidic dropout, is "leaking" Kabbalistic magic, and enchants her studio apartment. In what might be the first Yiddish "mumblecore" film, Annenberg creates a parallel universe (aka Williamsburg, Brooklyn), where Romeo and Juliet stem from divergent streams of ultra-orthodox Judaism and speak their lines in street-smart Yiddish. -- (C) Vilna City Films

Harlan - Im Schatten von Jud Suss (Harlan: In the Shadow of Jew Seuss)

Harlan - Im Schatten von Jud Suss (Harlan: In the Shadow of Jew Seuss) (2010)

Starring: Caspar Veit Harlan,August Zirner,Christiane Kubrick,Kristian Veit Harlan,Maria Korber

Many Germans who collaborated with the Nazi regime during the Third Reich later found themselves standing trial for crimes against humanity, but only one was an artist prosecuted for his work. Veit Harlan was a film director who, unlike many noted German auteurs, chose to stay in his homeland after Adolf Hitler rose to power, and made films under the supervision of the Nazi propaganda authorities. Harlan's best-known picture was Jud Suss (aka Jew Suss), a vehemently anti-Semitic drama that was required viewing for Hitler's top brass, a frequent attraction in Germany and occupied countries, and with the possible exception of Leni Riefenstahl's Triumph of the Will, the most notorious film to emerge from the Third Reich. Harlan was tried for his work as a Nazi propagandist, though he insisted he was coerced into making Jud Suss and other pro-Nazi films (a contention disputed by a number of his colleagues); two trials failed to convict Harlan, and he continued to work in Europe until his death in 1964. Filmmaker Felix Moeller presents a look at the life and work of this most notorious director in the documentary Harlan: Im Schatten von Jud Suss (aka Harlan: In the Shadow of Jew Suss), which examines Harlan's career as well as the impact his legacy has had on his descendants, some of whom have struggled to right Harlan's wrongs while others have preferred to keep their distance from his tainted reputation. One of the distant relatives interviewed for the picture is Christiane Kubrick, Harlan's niece who later wed the great director Stanley Kubrick.
