Oscars presents foreign film Foreign Films symposiums. Providing insight into the directors’ Oscar-nominated films.

Foreign Film Theatre

Gathering Saturday to attend the evening Nominees Symposium we found ourselves surrounded by many who attend every year. One family is attending for the 24th year, they did miss the first symposium.

Sitting in the theatre the white screen where the top films in history screened. Today the top foreign film directors surround me. The stories fill the sound of people’s stories and lives. Taking in all the emotions that the directors have developed. It is a true honor.

Host Academy Governor Mark Johnson during the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Oscar Week: Foreign Language Films 

This is the 60th year for the Foreign Film category; La Strada states, “It took The Academy 27 years to realize that not all great filmmaking is American.” Mark Johnson, Academy governor representing the Producers Branch and the chair of the Foreign Language Film Award Executive Committee, stated, “there is a depth in this category, foreign films, they are becoming more accessible. It is not necessary to make an American film.” This year the Academy nominated 5 films from 85 submitted foreign films. The nominted films are Tanna, Land Of Mine, Tori Erdmann, The Salesman, and A Man Called Ove.

Foreign Language Film Oscars 4Chion Lifestyle
Hannes Holm A Man Called Ove Foreign Language Film Oscars

Foreign Film A Man Called Ove

A Man Called Ove brings the sense of losing a lifelong partner to reality. This may be something many will experience in their lifetime, but not understand until that time. Hannes Holm, The Director, talks about taking a novel to the film he says, “He felt like a thief taking the book story to film. The version is his not the author’s version of the book. Frederick Morheden, the novelist, told him yes!”

The story is of a husband losing his wife. The struggle with disorder and absence of her presence he becomes desperate with the struggle. He turns to enforcing association rules and gives up on life. He develops a most unlikely relationship.

Holm’s discussed the film with us after the symposium. He feels that each time the movie is different. He believes that he is only fifty percent of a film. The audience is the other fifty percent. Holms is htrilled to be theatre where some of the world’s greatest films are screened.

This film’s nomination and awards also include: “Nominated – Best Foreign Language Film and Best Achievement for Makeup & Hairstyling (Love Larson & Eva von Bahr), 89th Academy Awards® Winner – Best European Comedy, 29th European Film Awards Winner – Best Actor (Rolf Lassgård), 2016 Seattle International Film Festival Golden Space Needle Award, Winner – Audience Award, Best Actor (Rolf Lassgård), Best Makeup (Love Larson & Eva Von Bahr), 2016 Guldbagge Awards, Winner – Audience Award, 2016 Mill Valley Film Festival & 2016 Traverse City Film Festival Winner – Audience Award for Best Film, 2016 Scottsdale International Film Festival.” This film may be viewed here Amazon, iTunes, Google Play, Microsoft, and ViaPlay.

The film did present many hurdles. The island has no electricity. The filming and editing with solar power. Casting was done by tribal leaders. They did have a few issues the almost imploded the film. The tribe members had never seen a film. The crew created a natural warm. the environment for a cast that did not even have a sense of filmmaking to be comfortable and present their best acting. They filmed a lot to ensure a good presence. The story had no written script. The story is a collaborated dialog based on each day shooting best. There were no rehearsals.

The world primer was with tribe. The chief said, “This is our Movie.” This film’s awards also include: Awards: AACTA Award for Best Original Music Score, Special Mention for Feature-length Fiction Film Nominations: AACTA Award for Best Direction. You can view the film on Amazon.

Foreign Film Toni Erdmannthe

Toni Erdmannthe, a film about a jokester father and his very busy CEO daughter. He hires someone to play his daughter. He wonders who is going to pay that bill.

The film has received criticism regarding the length. Director, Maren Ade,states, “Took notes after premiere and was afraid to make those changes. She stewed a few days but left it.” The comedy is character driven. The play with the dentures developed from a set that was a gift while the director was a waitress.

Foreign Film The Salesman

The Salesman is about a couple begins performing Death of A Salesman their relationship begins to change. Asghar Farhadi, from Iran, was not in attendance at the symposium. He made a choice to stay away after the recent ban by the US President put in place a travel ban. He did send a message that he was honored to be nominated and had a lot of respect for the Academy. All directors present signed a letter in solidarity with Farhadi.

We had the honor of meeting actor Brian Avery after the event. He is thrilled for Oscars week. He found the films to be inspirational in talent and film. You can learn more about Avery’s acting career here.

The symposium provides a great insight to the processes of filmmaking and how it works world wide. Many film makers receive funding from their governments. Looking forward to the announcement at the 89th Oscars for Foreign Language Film 60th winner.

The Oscars® will be presented on Sunday, February 26, 2017, at the Dolby Theatre® in Hollywood, CA and televised live by the ABC Television Network.

What You’ll Need To Know

Combine 1 cup quinoa with 2 cups water in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer until quinoa is tender, about 15-20 minutes. Remove from heat and let is sit for 5 minutes. After it has cooked and rested, use a fork to fluff and separate the grains.

Season the sea bass with salt and pepper.

In a large saute pan over medium heat, add the coconut oil and heat the oil to a slight smoke. Add 1 sprig of fresh thyme to the saute pan and sear the sea bass skin side down for 3/4 of the cooking time about 7 minutes. This will give the fish a nice crisp skin and golden color. Carefully turn the fish over, to finish the other side. Remove the sea bass and hold in a warm place.

In a mixing bowl, add the diced mango, purple onion, cilantro, tomatoes, jalapeño, lime juice and salt and mix together.

Plate your ingredients with 1/2 cup cooked quinoa, sea bass and mango salsa on top (roughly, 1/4 cup.)

Unlikely Friends ~ “Slipaway”

Unlikely Friends ~ “Slipaway”

Husband and wife, Julia Butler, and Daniel Mentz presents Slipaway at Prescott Film Festival. The most unlikely duo becomes the best of friends on a self-discovery journey.

The film takes two different generations and puts them together at a time when their lives are struggling. They must overcome their differences in age, personality, and more. The journey takes them to become best friends while supporting each other’s dreams.

The script develops from Mentz’s visit with Gwen Davis, the author. He personally delivers a keyboard he sold to her on Craigslist. The visit became an all-day adventure with cookies, tea, and scrapbooks. She told stories about hanging out in a place with the likes of Marilyn Monroe and Cary Grant. Butler developed the screenplay after an evening of Mentz regaling the day’s adventures. Davis’ stories and life inspire her.

Mentz states, “We wanted to bring this message to the foreground, that relationships whether romantic or platonic do not have to be in the same age group. Relationships in different generations are not really discussed.” The movie takes on generational struggles and friendships that help with making dreams come true.

Fall, actress Elaine Partnow

Fall, actress Elaine Partnow, brings a lot to the role. Mentz says, “She brought the character to life much more than we could ever imagine.” Partnow brings Fall to life with details that are specific to Fall’s her generation. Partnow presents the need to be private and dressing up before leaving the house. Just a few details Partnow presents throughout the film that bring her generation to light.

Adam, actor Jesse Pepe

Adam, actor Jesse Pepe, presents with his own story and struggle from the start. His past is still very present. This takes precedence over Adam and Fall’s each dream. Adam was not onboard with Fall’s concept of dreaming in life,

Adam: “It’s a little cheesy, don’t you think?”

Fall: “Cheesy? Well, guess that means my whole life has been… cheesy.”

Mentz and Butler’s first feature film brings an unlikely pair together that takes you on a lifetime journey of self-discovery, laughter, and dreams.

Red carpet ready takes months of planning when you grace the Oscars® red carpet. “Look here, hey over here, look to your left, look to your right, it’s me” hundreds of photographers shout to each celebrity on the Oscars‘ red carpet. Getting to this moment in the day takes a team putting together the best-dressed celebrity. There are many red carpets in Hollywood on the day of The Academy Awards. The personal brand image plays no higher importance than on this day when thousands of cameras are capturing every detail.

2016 Oscars red carpet presented exceptional design, style, and fashion. The classic designs to a jumpsuit take the styling to a personal level. The couple of the evening was Leo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet.

The real miss of the evening was Heidi Klum.  The design and styling is the worst dressed. The layers of mixed materials and large flowers were only part of the problem. The diagonal cut with the peek-a-boo cleavage was just awkward. We agree there were some real misses on the red carpet this year, including Kate Winslet.

The team’s best dressed was Olivia Wilde. This stunning Valentino Haute Couture gown provided a bareback and beautiful cleavage. The chocker provided an additional sex appeal. Gabriel, @GabrielStylesU, stated, “One thing I feel all females lacked last night was accessories.”

The red carpets are endless on this night in Hollywood.  There are all the after parties, viewing parties, and more. Vanity Fair held an exceptional event and had a fun red carpet. Elton John always has a viewing party for his Aids Foundation. The other parties include:

  • Governor’s Ball
  • Fox After Party
  • InStyle Oscar Viewing Party
  • Oscar Salute
  • Mercedes-Benz USA & African American Film Critics Association Oscar Viewing Party

This team spends months preparing all the details for each look the celebrity will need for the evening full of events. Sean James, make-up and hair stylist to the stars, says,
