Madagascar @ Kasseler Dokfest w/ Trickfilmklasse Kassel

The Trickfilmklasse Kassel presents in cooperation with  Kasseler Dokfest the film program:

Madagaskar begegnen 4 – Entwicklung (Meeting Madagascar 4 – development)

Jeux d’enfants – Gilde Razafitsihadinoina – Dokumentation – Madagascar – 2017 – 24:27 – Malagasy/UT Englisch

It is the fourth season of the international collaboration between the madagascan film festival Recontres du Film Court (RFC), the Kasseler Dokfest and the Trickfilmklasse Kassel.  If one opens the catalogues of 2014/15/16, he or she might have read the introductory paragraphs about the origins of the madagascan cinema,  its decline and its new invention about 10 years ago. One will discover information about Laza, the filmmaker and producer who has returned to his homeland, recovering only abandoned echos of the film landscape that he knew and decided to found a film festival. The RFC was designed to provide a platform for a new generation of madagascan filmmakers for future development.

Them & Us – Lawrence Agbetsise – Dokumentation – Ghana – 2016 – 13:52 – Englisch/UT Englisch

Since then the festival and its program is constantly changing. The RFC developed from a two-day event which screened regional and national films only, to a international event that lasts 10 days, welcomes over 20k visitors in this period, screens several hundred films and receives film entries from the whole continent (Africa).

I want to make a movie – Nathaniela R. Randrianomearisoa – Experimentaldokumentation – Madagaskar – 2016 – 7:27 – Malagasy/UT
Englisch

The program starts with a madagascan film that perfectly represents the emotions of a young generation of african filmmakers: “I want to make a movie” by Nathaniela R. Randrianomearisoa is equally surreal as technically flawed. Nonetheless it demonstrates the need to get a camera and tell a story. In the spirit of development the program continues with four productions from various african countries. Each of them was shown in the contest of the RFC. In this sense the meeting with Madagascar is really a meeting with the whole african continent.
