13.Cinematik will begin with a film from Toronto Film Festival and will be closed by a mysterious drama from Cannes

24. August 2018

A Norwegian co-production drama What will people say (Hva vil folk si) directed and written by Iram Haq had a very special first night at the Toronto Film Festival and so happens to be the opening film of the 13. IFF Cinematik. This is a story of a 16-year old Nisha who comes from a Pakistani family and enjoys her liberty. Everything, however, changes as her tradition-loving family starts to interfere. Nisha’s family tries to radically and absurdly protect her from the modern influence of the free Western Europe and therefore, causes a significant generation conflict. What will people say belongs to one of the most expressive Norwegian shots so far.

The newest two-time Oscar winner in Foreign Language Film category shot by Iranian director Asghar Farhadi will close this year’s IFF Cinematik.  A Franco-Spanish mystifying drama Everybody knows (Todos lo saben) focuses on Laura who came back to her birthplace, not far from Madrid. Laura comes to her sister’s wedding which seems to uncover secretes from the past. A starry cast (Penélope Cruz, Javier Bardem, Ricardo Darín) has opened this year’s 71. Festival de Cannes.
