Combining documentary and animation in her feature-length debut, Swiss filmmaker Anja Kofmel is trying to uncover the mystery surrounding the death of her young cousin who was killed under suspicious circumstances in the Yugoslavian civil war. Premiered at the Critics’ Week section of Cannes, Chris the Swiss underscores its narrative with poetically drawn, almost gothic monochromatic animation. Kofmel objectively probes the reasons that compel young men to heed the call of war in faraway lands and gives a touching elegy to doomed youth.
In 1998 Ben Jakober and Yannick Vu collaborated on an obvious remake of Marcel Duchamp’s Roue de Bicyclette, his first “readymade” object. Duchamp combined a bicycle wheel, a fork and a stool to create a machine which served no purpose, subverting accepted norms of art.
Giorgio de Chirico was born on July 10, 1888, in Volos, Greece, to an Italian family. His mother, Gemma Cervetto, was from a family of Genoa origin, but most likely she was born in Izmir. His father, Evaristo, was born on June 21, 1841 in the Büyükdere district of Istanbul.
