STA, 4 July 2022 - Film Under the Stars, an annual series of open-air screenings in the courtyard of Ljubljana Castle co-organised by the city cinema Kinodvor, will feature a selection of the best world and domestic cinema between 14 July and 6 August.
This year's selection includes three major previews: a parody on spy movies OSS 117: From Africa With Love by Nicolas Bedos, which was featured at last year's Cannes Festival; The Good Boss, a satire on modern work relationships by Fernando Leon de Aranoa, and Nope, a film by Jordan Peele about three Californians who make a bizarre discovery in the middle of nowhere.
There will be a lot of Slovenian film as well, starting with the opening film, Darko Sinko's directorial debut Inventura (Inventory). This a dramedy about a man who realizes perceptions he had about his own life were just an illusion.
Morena (Murina), a Slovene-Croatian co-production by director Antoneta Alamat Kusijanović tells the story of a girl fighting patriarchy in the Mediterranean.
Tijana Zinajić will present her Prasica, slabšalni izraz za žensko (Bitch, Derogatory Term For Woman), and Matevž Luzar his Orkester (Orchestra), which was first screened during the competition part of the Cottbus film festival in Germany.
Many other acclaimed films will also be screened including Steven Spielberg's West Side Story, Pedro Almodovar's Parallel Mothers, House of Gucci by Ridley Scott, Drive My Car by Ryusuke Hamaguchi, and many others.
Screenings will take place daily starting at 9:30pm. Films in English will have Slovenian subtitles, while films in other foreign languages will have English subtitles as well.
In case of bad weather, screenings will be cancelled and will take place the following day at Kinodvor, and for the premieres and previews two extra screenings will be held, said Kinodvor.
