The screening of iconic silent-era film The Witch to be accompanied by live music of the Sinkauz brothers • Audience will be able to join in at karaoke screening of ABBA documentary.
Three midnight screenings if vary different music-related films will mark Motovun’s nights. They come from different periods and different genres but from the same country – Sweden. The partner country of Motovun Film Festival for 2022. The festival will be taking place from 26–30 July.
The Witch (Häxan – Witchcraft Through The Ages) is a classic Swedish silent-era film. Its screening will be accompanied by live music – to the joy of Motovun audience, used to this kind of screenings. The Witch was made exactly a hundred years ago. In those days it was controversial and blasphemous because of the occult scenes and sexuality it contains. As it irritated the morals of the day, the film was shelved for a while.
Our acclaimed composers Alen and Nenad Sinkauz, winners of four Golden Arenas for Original Score, will accompany the screening of this iconic Swedish early horror movie with live music. Sinkauz brother have written music for many artistic and multidisciplinary projects and for numerous Croatian feature and animated films. They also wrote original music for the screening of the iconic Swedish film.
Sound of Noise is one of the most original and oddball Swedish films of modern times. It is a story about a gang of drummers who terrorize public institutions and spaces with noise. It is their artistic project. Trying to get hold of him is a police inspector who is deaf and cannot hear the noise sabotages of these strange troublemakers. All this makes the film easy to watch and hard to forget.
ABBA is Sweden’s trademark. It is one of its symbols and the major export hit of the country’s powerful music industry. Only one documentary has been made about them. It was during their Australian tour at the peak of their fame, in 1977. It is therefore the only document of not-so-numerous live performances of the famous four. The film is full of widely-known songs and the audience will have for a singalong at this karaoke screening.
Numerous concerts will also take place during the festival. Greek ethno band Koza Mostra will perform on Day One (26 July). In the days to follow, Đutko i Plodovi zemlje, singer-songwriter Miriiam and Istrian legends Gustafi will also be playing for you. On the final day, 30 July, ethno-punk merrymen Cinkuši will have a concert immediately after the screening of Even Pigs Go To Heaven, for which thewy wrote original score. Our old friend, DJ Mario Kovač, will wrap it up for this year’s edition of the festival.
Admission to the concerts is free. Tickets for the screenings can be booked via this link.
