(ANSA) - TRIESTE, 12 LUG - Three films dedicated to the border, its history and the inhabitants of the cross-border territory will be screened next Tuesday, July 18, at 9 p.m. at Transalpina/Trg Evrope Square. For many years now, Kinoatelje has been setting up a big screen in this symbolic place of contact between the two Gorities for an evening dedicated to cinema under the stars and to promote the square as one of the cornerstones for the culture of the two cities.
    The program will feature the documentary We Don't Want White Bread (2009) by director Jasna Hribernik, one of the best-known exponents of contemporary Slovenian art, which through testimonies and historical reflections describes the encounter between consumerism and democracy, when coca-cola, chewing gum and jazz conquered the Soča Valley. A time of celebration but also of strong demonstrations that demanded annexation to Yugoslavia. The evening's guest will be filmmaker Jasna Hribernik.
    Before the film, the short film Where is the Iron Curtain?(1961) by legendary Slovenian director Mako Sajko, which depicts in a very humorous and light-hearted way life as well as friendly neighborly relations on the Yugoslav-Italian border in 1960, when the two countries were almost undisturbed in the exchange of goods. Enriching the program will be the animated short War of Words or Respectful Silence? (2020) by young director Leo Černic.The work was produced by Kinoatelje as part of the educational project of the same name developed in the 2020/2021 school year.In this course, students got to learn how turbulent the past of the cross-border territory between Slovenia and Italy was. In 2020, Černic received the award for artistic design given by the Association of Slovenian Animated Film - DSAF.
    The event is part of the GO! 2025 European Capital of Culture program and the multi-year project EAST/WEST: The Frontier in Cinema and History, which explores through the multifaceted perspective of moving images what life was like on the Italian-Slovenian border.
    Films will be screened in original language with Slovenian and Italian subtitles.
    In case of bad weather, the screening will be held at Kinemax in Gorizia. (ANSA).
