SEEfestís Passport to Trieste Takes Angelenos on a Cinematic Journey

Mar 20, 2018

The 13th annual South East European Film Festival (SEEfest)
(seefilmla.org), April 26 Ė May 3, brings a large selection of feature, documentaries and short films to
Writers Guild Theater, Laemmle Music Hall and West Hollywood Council Chambers/Library
campus, highlighting a bygone era of 100 years ago centered around Trieste, once a major port of the
Habsburg empire and a magnet for artists like Rilke and Joyce.
As a crossroads between Austrian, Italian, Slavic and Jewish cultures on the peripheries of
Habsburg Austria, modern Italy, and the Balkan Peninsula, Trieste has been defined by its proximity
to borders erased and redrawn with unusual frequency. Contested and contemplated by poets,
scholars, novelists and filmmakers, it has been depicted as a microcosm of plurinational civility, an
uncanny non-place or as a site of mystery and political intrigue, in works of narrative fiction and nonfiction
that blur the line between myth and reality. SEEfest invites you to reflect on this city as a
metaphor for the ironies, uncertainties and possibilities that characterize not only the South East
European experience, but many facets of our global age; shifting and disappearing borders, fervent
nationalisms, placeless places and the multiplicity of identities that are confluent, and sometimes
conflicting, in us all.
Festival visitors will be given the facsimile of a passport book and receive a stamp at each
event they attend during the program, with prizes awaiting those completing the entire journey.
Pre-festival events include musical theater Gypsy in My Soul starring Irina Maleeva on April 6,
7:30PM at the WACO Theater Center in North Hollywood, featuring memorable songs and dances
from the Gypsy musical tradition; and Trieste Literary Salon on April 17 at 7PM at the West Hollywood
Council Chambers with UCLA professor Thomas Harrison, author of ď1910Ē in conversation with
John Agnew, distinguished professor of Political Geography; Tzvi Rafael Rivlin, Trieste cultural
scholar from Montreal, Quebec; Nina Bjekovic, PhD candidate in Italian studies researching the
literature of prominent authors of the Slovene minority in Northern Italy; and moderator
MariaCristina Heller, Trieste-born actress and journalist.
Other highlights of the festival include documentary film Trieste, Yugoslavia by Alessio Bozzer
about the 1970-1990 shopping bonanza when Yugoslavs traveled to Trieste in droves to buy jeans
and other coveted Western garments; The Nearest Elsewhere. A Journey to Slovenia, by Elisabetta Sgarbi,
traveling to Triesteís next-door neighbor Slovenia; Men Donít Cry debut feature by Bosnian filmmaker
Alen Drljevic about war veterans in a group therapy for PTSD; Bulgarian WWI satire Enemies by
Svetislav Ovcharov; The Miner from Slovenia, Hanna Slakís thriller-like exploration of dark secrets
from the past; Twice Upon a Time animated delight about a king with a split personality by the multitalented
Vojin Vasovic; and documentary The Other Side of Everything, portrait of a country by Mila
Turajlic (Cinema Komunisto), winner of the top award at the International Documentary Festival
Amsterdam. For more info and to subscribe to festival news please visit: http://seefilmla.org/
The specific brand of humor and zest for life against all odds make these stories universal,
transcending language and borders. They open doors into another experience altogether and by
taking us on a journey halfway across the globe help us to better understand challenges in our own
backyard.
Festival passes, and tickets to pre-festival events are available on eventbrite/SEEfest.
