Join us at Ciné Utopia Wednesday, January 11th at 7:00 PM for this month’s LuxFilmLab for a screening of No Bears from Jafar Panahi.
No Bears portrays two parallel love stories. In both, the lovers are troubled by hidden, inevitable obstacles, the force of superstition and the mechanics of power. Director Jafar Panahi unwittingly gets involved in a political riot in the village when he is asked to share a photograph of a couple in a forbidden relationship. The drama escalates and shows how seemingly innocent artistic actions can have extreme consequences. Faced with so many challenges, Panahi reflects on the inability to leave his homeland of Iran.
Tickets for the LuxFilmLab screening are available via the Kinepolis webshop at the regular rates of Ciné Utopia*.
On the first Wednesday of every month, LuxFilmLab – a joint initiative by Luxembourg City Film Festival and Kinepolis – highlights one feature film, chosen in cooperation by LuxFilmFest’s Artistic Committee and the Kinepolis programme team. A member of the Artistic Committee introduces the special LuxFilmLab screenings, aiming to support films whose release dates didn’t allow for them to be selected for the Festival itself but whose artistic qualities would likely have led to their inclusion in the LuxFilmFest line-up.
*LuxFilmFest isn’t involved in the commercial aspects of these screenings. Kinepolis set access to the screenings and ticket prices.
