Botero is a poetic documentary of one of the world’s most prolific living artists, Fernando Botero. Born in Medellin, Colombia in 1932 to a poor family, Botero witnessed the death of his father at an early age and experienced a violent and tumultuous political landscape in his youth during the Colombian civil war which had a profound impact on his art and humanitarianism. Botero would go on to face struggle and tragedy before his art captured the world’s attention. Featuring unprecedented access, the film is a behind-the-scenes chronicle of the life and art of the 88-year-old master artist whom the art world has compared to Picasso.
“… an enjoyable experience that presents an appealing overview of the artist’s life and works and will no doubt please his many fans.” – Paul Parcellin, Film Threat
A REGULAR WOMAN
Based on the tragic “honor killing” of Hatun Aynur Sürücü in 2005, A Regular Woman portrays a glimpse of life for a free spirited young woman living with an ultra-conservative Turkish Muslim family in Berlin. After escaping a forced marriage in Turkey with her abusive cousin, Hatun provokes the ire of her family by embracing a westernized lifestyle before being shot to death in cold blood by her youngest brother. Her demise, which shocked the nation and thrust the practice of honor killings into the world spotlight, was elaborately planned by her family.
“Much more accomplished and watchable than Hormann’s previous film about a real-life crime, “3096 Days,” “A Regular Woman” owes much to its fine cast and impeccable technical package.” – Alyssa Simon, Variety
