How I Fell in Love with Eva Ras
Location: Redstone Theater
Dir. Andrew Gil Mata. Portugal/Bosnia and Herzegovina. 2016. 74 mins. North American Premiere. In English. Up in the cramped projection booth of an old cinema in Sarajevo, Sena presides over her domain. She cleans, eats, naps, and spools out reels of vintage prints. Portuguese filmmaker Andrew Gil Mata has fashioned a film that celebrates and uncannily evokes a swiftly disintegrating milieu, employing long takes both of Sena’s ritualized behavior and of the Yugoslavian films she is projecting into the theater. Subtly, entrancingly, we drift into parallel dreams of a forgotten world. Preceded by Panoramis Paramount Paranormal. (Dirs. Constanze Ruhm, Emilien Awada, 2015, 23 mins.) The ghost of movie history pervades this impressionistic film photographed at a modern residence that used to be the site of a movie studio.
