Prima Nova

The principle of Prima Nova is very simple: all kinds of long- and medium-length films can be proposed to us, as long as they have been recently (auto)produced and they are submitted to us by their director(s). It does not have to be a premiere. We select a few of these films every month and project them once, with a free entrance. The show is always followed by a meeting with the director.

Films should be sent to: Cinema Nova (Prima Nova), rue d’Arenbergstraat, 14, 1000 Bruxelles

Deux fois le même fleuve

Effi Weiss & Amir Borenstein, 2013, video, ov st fr & ang, 110'

1869, John McGregor, a Scottish explorer, canoes down the river Jordan from its sources to the lake of Tiberias. Summer 2012, Effi and Amir, a duo of Israeli artists living in Brussels, make the same journey. In a mythical scenario, where men and landscapes are marked by politics, religion and history, the directors take us on a sunny and disturbing road-movie, punctuated by the meetings with Israeli holiday-makers. “Deux fois le même fleuve” is not interested in facts, historical truth or precise details. Mingling direct cinema and the dramatization of the authors’ inner dialogue, it aims at showing how things are perceived and told. It is above all a film about Israel and the Israeli, about how they understand their own land and what they do with it, not in wartime, but in summer, during the special time of the holidays.

Bruocsella !

Ian Menoyot, 2013, video, ov fr , 45'

A young woman walks through Brussels, looking for a flat, a job, in one word: a position. Jeanne knows the city well. They share the same kind of beauty: pale and upset, almost pretty against their own will. The façades hide behind curtains of rain and behind the windows there are old stories, that have left Jeanne out. Alone in the midst of the damp and persistent urban throb, she looks for her Northern star. The South doesn’t interest her. Jeanne needs to meet somebody, to find a shelter. The film seeks for an anchor with her, may it be moving, in this city which tries to find its shape, in spite of the hundreds of paths which meet and get lost in it.
