Host Academy Governor Mark Johnson and directors

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.

Foreign Film Tanna

Tanna, a South Pacific island, is a story about the Yakel Tribe. The love interest of Wawa may change the tribe’s world for generations to come. The film is cast by the tribe leaders.

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.

Director of the Oscar® nominated foreign film “Toni Erdmann”, Maren Ade

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.
