Labocine - Science/Art Digital Magazine

About the Issue: Our skin is a complex organ. It is a membrane, a thin dividing surface between our bodies and all that lies within us and the exterior world without, a protective container for the fluid memory of the seas we carry within us. It is also a direct interface between the two: it conveys tactile information to our nervous systems and identifying information to others around us. Thus it both partitions and connects. Though the skin is undeniably of vital importance, the ways in which it is important shift with social changes: the meanings attached to skin and physical attributes are not fixed. And where lies identity, then, within or on our surfaces? In the brain, the consciousness, or even the microbiome? The films in this issue seek out identity and body as they move back and forth across the barrier of the skin, from our sun-buffering melanocytes to our particular neurochemistries, visiting in the process the many other meanings invested in our bodies: desire and reproduction, health and disease, life and death, yoga class and beach.

About Labocine: Labocine is an Imagine Science Films initiative to extend film programming to a broader and more diverse audience. They have over 1,500 film titles from 200 countries for all ages brought to you by artists, scientists, filmmakers and educators.

BHFF PRESENTS: MARTA HERNAIZ PIDAL 11th April 2019

BHFF PRESENTS: MARTA HERNAIZ PIDAL

The BHFF / Bosnian-Herzegovinian Film Festival is proud to present a Q&A with Marta Hernaiz Pidal as part of the sixteenth annual festival! On Thursday, April 11, Hernaiz Pidal joins us following the 8:45pm screening of her film The Chaotic Life of Nada Kadić, a moving drama that seamlessly blurs fiction and documentary in chronicling the life of a single mother whose young child is diagnosed with autism. See the trailer here! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GKywSInsN9w

Marta Hernaiz Pidal is a Mexican filmmaker with a degree in film and television, and a master’s degree in fine arts with a specialty in film direction obtained at the film.factory school in Sarajevo, which was founded by the renowned Hungarian director Béla Tarr. In 2016, her short film Dobro was part of the official selection of Cannes Film Festival in the Cinefondátion section. Her first feature film, The Chaotic Life of Nada Kadić saw its world premiere at the Berlinale Forum 2018.

Tickets to The Chaotic Life of Nada Kadić and Q&A with Hernaiz Pidal are on sale now!
https://www.eventbrite.com/e/presentation-4-the-chaotic-lif…

In Hernaiz Pidal’s The Chaotic Life of Nada Kadić, Nada is a dedicated single mother, disaffected with her tumultuous domestic life yet unable to piece together a plan to change it. After Nada finds out her daughter is on the autistic spectrum, together they embark on a journey through the Balkans in search of peace with the past, and acceptance of new realities. On their long drive through the foggy, rainy countryside, and away from the chaos of home, perhaps they can form new bonds, and learn new ways to communicate with one another. The BHFF invites you to join us for this special presentation and Q&A with Hernaiz Pidal on Thursday, April 11, at 8:45pm!
