Added to my films
The director Fred Kelemen, who is also a cinematographer for Bela Tarr (cinematography prize winner for "The Turin Horse", among others), presents a film triptych. It comprises two tales: "Blue Ballad for Lovers" and "Blue Rondo for Survivors", and a connecting middle part, "Blue Psalm for Wolves". All the parts flow into each other and build one universal mosaic of life in Sarajevo. In Kelemen's typical long, uncut shots the camera follows different protagonists and shows their interweaving dance of hope and despair, love and death.
"Fate" (1995), "Frost" (1998), "Nightfall" (1999), "Fallen" (2005), "Sarajevo Songs Of Woe" (2016, "Kino pavasaris").
