The 70th San Sebastián has completed its final bend with new offers announced for Spain by A Contracorriente, Bteam and Avalon, the joy of industry players during a first full festival on site, blessed by the sun of the early fall, a sense of even slower international sales.

Likewise, the Spanish market and production sector remains buoyant, supported by arthouse breakthroughs and buoyant drama series production. Five takeaways from this year’s San Sebastian Festival, which ends tomorrow, September 24:

San Sebastian is growing (again)

“There are markets that have improved during COVID-19, and others that have not improved and San Sebastián is a festival that has improved thanks to its industrial activities”, says Vicente Canales de Film Factory. This construction comes a long way, with a Films in Progress section in 2002, a Europe-Latin America co-production forum from 2012, the Ikusmira Berriak development residency from 2017 and now a Creative Investors conference.

There is a form of cross-collateralization here. Competition films can blow hot or cold. The 40, often totally unknown titles brought to market by these four strands of the industry guarantee something of interest for producers and sales agents who also decide where their hottest films will be released.

“At an industry level, more and more things are happening here, and it’s very interesting for me to be in San Sebastián,” said Iván Díaz of Filmax, international manager at Filmax, which sells the Cesc Gay’s ensemble comedy “Stories Not to Be Told”, premiered Thursday at the San Sebastian Festival as an RTVE gala.

Sales are slowing down (even more)

“There’s been a race to catch up with Netflix among streamers and now people are recognizing that it’s not necessarily the best business model,” 30West’s Trevor Groth said. “So now there’s kind of a break. I think there will be a step back, a return to distribution and exhibition in theaters. This pause, however, compounded by uncertainty over when adult audiences will return to theaters in droves, currently appears to be hurting sales activity. French sellers, who often use San Sebastián to advertise early sales of hot tickets to Venice and Toronto, seemed particularly interested.

….But there were cases

“San Sebastian is a launching pad, not a market to close,” says Latido Films’ Antonio Saura, noting he won’t sell the world on Rodrigo Sorogoyen’s hot ‘As Bestas,’ a film The Pact opened to 316,000 entry sales in France, around $2 million or more, at the box office gross, through Ventana Sur in late November. Thus, San Sebastián has cut, in general, in two ways: commercial agent pick-up announcements, especially in the run-up to the event; co-production deals as producers reach out to production partners to make up for an increasingly tough international sales market on more arty packages. The only exception to this slowdown is Spain. Galvanized by an exceptional box office on event art films – “Alcarrás”, “Lullaby” – key players have struck deals in San Sebastián or unveiled bold distribution actions.

Offers :

*Spanish distribution rights to the highly anticipated film ‘Cerrar los ojos’, from legendary Spanish director Victor Erice (‘Spirit of the Hive’), have been acquired by Avalon Audiovisual Distribution, whose credits include “Alcarràs”. The film is scheduled for next year. Tandem Films, Pecado Films and Nautilus are producing.

*Energetic Spanish distributor-producer Bteam Pictures signed with Film Factory the Spanish rights to “Kings of the World” by Colombian Laura Mora, a world premiere in competition at San Sebastian, and part of Toronto’s Industry Selects section.

*A Contracorriente Films bought the Spanish rights of the Horizontes Latinos player from Cuban Pavel Giroud “The Padilla Affair”, co-produced by the Spaniards Ventú Productions and Lia Rodríguez in Cuba, and sold by Figa Films.

*International sales rights to Petr Václav’s lavish period film ‘Il Boemo’, which had its world premiere in main competition, have been acquired by the Parisian company Loco Movieswho also jumped on “Woman at Sea”, a fashionable title from the new San Sebastian directors of the Parisian company Slot Machine (“Melancholia”).

*”Walls Can Talk”, the latest film by Spaniard Carlos Saura (“Raise Ravens”, “Deprisa, Deprisa”, “Carmen”) was acquired for intentional sales by Latido Movies. Produced by Malvalanda (“Madre”, “The Mole Agent”) and distributed in Spain by Wanda Vision, the film had its world premiere as part of an RTVE gala.

* Madrid-based Latido has also secured the sales rights to the documentary ‘Tequila, Sex, Drugs and Rock and Roll’, from Goya award-winning producer and director Alvaro Longoria.

*Movie Factory Entertainment picked up Roger Zanuy’s documentary “Mibu, the moon in a dish”, which opened the Culinary Zinema sidebar. He also secured worldwide sales rights to “El Otro Hijo,” the feature debut of Colombian Juan Sebastián Quebrada.

*Independent Sales took on the international on Emad Aleebrahim Dehkordi’s feature debut “A Tale of Shemroon,” which debuted in New Directors. The film will be released in France via Jour2Fête.

trending movies

A day before Saturday’s awards, the contest favorite for local scribes was Fernando Franco’s unusual tale of sexual emancipation ‘The Rite of Spring’, followed by Mikel Gurrea’s ‘Suro’, a study in labor relations modern and the drama of teenage motherhood by Pilar Palomero. “La Maternal,” tied with Hong Sangsoo’s much-loved four-part Toronto premiere, “Walk Up.” International critics again favored “La Maternal” and “Walk Up” (see Variety reviews), but also “Il Boemo”, “Great Yarmouth” and “Daughter of Rage”. One thing is certain. San Sebastian’s now unique award will be extremely difficult to land with praised performances of several female roles, for example, “La Maternal”, “Daughter” and “Yarmouth”.

A player who preferred Mexico to Argentina

The World Cup is getting closer and closer and with it the participation of many national teams like Argentina and Mexico. Curiously, there is the case of a footballer who preferred to represent the Mexican national team instead of his country, and now he is going to miss the World Cup because of this decision.

It is precisely Rogelio Funes Mori the player who doubts going to the World Cup, throughout Gerardo Martino’s statements during Media Day on the concentration of the Mexican national team in the United States.

Considering this situation, the coach assured that he will only take three centre-forwards and that’s why Raúl Jiménez, Henry Martin, Santiago Gimenez and Rogelio Funes Mori himself will fight for the position. Considering this situation, it looks like the last place will be between Gimenez and Funes Mori.

Has Funes Mori ever played for Argentina?

Yes, indeed the player managed to develop during the South American U-20 championship in 2011 under the orders of Alejandro Sabella. He only had 30 minutes with the national team. However, he now plays for Mexico and featured in the Gold Cup and Qatar 2022 qualifiers.

Sixty years ago, a sauce usually meant a classic French mixture, from the basic flour-thickened béchamel to satin emulsions such as hollandaise, to brown sauces based on high-intensity Escoffier broth. workforce. In the 1970s and 1980s, the new cuisine announced sauces without flour, such as beurre blanc, as well as sauces based on pureed vegetables.

Those sauces haven’t gone away, of course, but in recent years they’ve had to share the spotlight with a whole new naughty cast. American tastes have broadened and become more adventurous. Today, sauces can be cold or room temperature concoctions, salsas, dipping sauces, whipped mixes in a bowl rather than a pan. Here are four easy sauces that fall into the latter category and promise to dramatically up your cooking game.

A Provençal aioli

In France, this tasty Provençal garlic mayonnaise is usually served in the middle of a large platter as a Large Aioli, surrounded by vegetables cooked at room temperature, such as new potatoes, baby artichokes, eggplant and green beans. Fish, usually salt cod and boiled eggs are often included. But in recent years, aioli has become de rigueur as a topping for everything from burgers to grilled oysters or fries.

This tasty Provençal garlic mayonnaise is traditionally made from scratch, using a mortar and pestle to grind garlic and salt into a paste, then mixing in an egg yolk and finally adding olive oil, drop by drop, using the pestle to stir and mix. all in.

I use a food processor to speed up the preparation. And I take other liberties too, using good quality mayonnaise, instead of making my own, and adding interesting ingredients.

Aioli, a Provençal garlic mayonnaise, is easy to make at home, especially if you use a food processor and cheat a bit with store-bought, not homemade mayonnaise — and you can boost the flavor by adding other ingredients, from roasted red peppers. with lemon zest. (Getty Images)

I often add mashed roasted red peppers, for example, because of the flavor they add, then serve them over crab cakes or on toast as a garnish for fish soups. If you like a little more attitude, you can add 1-1/2 tsp chilli powder and/or 1/2 tsp ground cumin.

For a spicy, slightly smoky version, add a dollop of mashed chipotle peppers. The chilies are wrapped in a tomato-based adobo sauce. I puree the adobo sauce and chiles together in a small food processor and freeze any leftover puree for future use.

And if I’m garnishing seafood, I add chopped fresh herbs (like chopped basil or parsley) and a pinch of chopped lemon zest.

Easy aioli

Makes about 1 cup

Ingredients

3 large garlic cloves, peeled

2 to 3 pieces roasted red peppers, drained, patted dry, optional

1 cup mayonnaise

Pinch of cayenne pepper

directions

With the motor running, add the garlic to a food processor fitted with the metal blade and blend until minced. Add the roasted red pepper and puree. Add 1 cup of mayonnaise and a pinch of cayenne pepper. Mix until well blended, scraping down sides of bowl as needed. Refrigerate, tightly, for up to 2 days.

Use it: Serve it over cooked crab cakes or brushed on toast as a garnish for fish soups. It is divine as a dip for fries, fried zucchini or chicken wings or as a sauce for kebabs. Or add fresh herbs and lemon zest and serve over grilled or grilled fish.

Argentinian chimichurri sauce

This seductive green sauce is a staple in Argentina, where it’s served with the country’s legendary grilled steaks. It’s usually made with a mixture of cilantro and flat-leaf Italian parsley, but feel free to vary the ratio to suit your tastes – use all the parsley, if you hate cilantro, or omit the parsley, if you’re a cilantro lover. .

If desired, you can use half the sauce as a marinade for the skirt steak, hanger steak, or flank steak before grilling. Chill marinated meat in refrigerator for 3 hours or overnight. Serve grilled beef with remaining sauce, discarding marinade.

Chimichurri

Makes about 2 cups

Ingredients

1/2 cup red wine vinegar

1 teaspoon kosher salt, plus more if needed

3 to 4 garlic cloves, peeled, minced

1 shallot, peeled, finely chopped

1 red fresno or red jalapeño pepper, finely chopped (remove seeds before chopping for a less spicy sauce)

2 cups chopped fresh cilantro

1 cup chopped fresh Italian parsley

1/3 cup finely chopped fresh oregano

3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

directions

In medium bowl, combine vinegar, salt, garlic, shallot and chiles; let stand 10 minutes.

Stir in cilantro, parsley and oregano. Stirring constantly with a fork, add the oil in a thin stream.

Use it: Serve chimichurri with grilled steaks, lamb or pork chops. It is good with roast chicken or salmon, and delicious on sautéed shrimp, grilled skewers or roasted vegetables. Stir it into cooked grains for a succulent salad.

spanish romesco sauce

A Spanish Romesco is a culinary gem. This thick, red-hued sauce can turn chicken, no matter the cut, into an irresistible dish. Salmon too. Romesco is what makes Patatas Bravas so brave, and it’s also a great sandwich spread.

This version is a thick and coarse mixture of roasted red peppers, toasted hazelnuts, cubed bread, sherry vinegar, garlic, smoked paprika and extra virgin olive oil. If you want a smaller amount, cut the recipe in half.

A word about nuts: I use Trader Joe’s Roasted Whole Unsalted Hazelnuts. Much, but not all of the skin is removed – don’t worry about what’s left. If using whole unroasted hazelnuts, place them on a rimmed baking sheet and roast them at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Keep an eye on them to make sure they don’t burn, and be sure to shake the pan to swirl the nuts halfway through roasting. Transfer the nuts to a clean tea towel, pull the sides of the tea towel and let rest for about 1 minute. Using the towel, gently rub the hazelnuts back and forth to release as much of their skin as possible.

Romesco sauce

Makes about 1½ cups

Ingredients

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, divided use

1/2 slice hearty white sandwich bread, cut into 1/2-inch pieces

1/4 cup hazelnuts, toasted, skinless

2 large garlic cloves, peeled, thinly sliced

1 cup jarred roasted red peppers, drained, patted dry

1½ tablespoons sherry vinegar

1 teaspoon of honey

1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika

1/2 teaspoon of salt

Pinch of cayenne pepper

directions

Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a 12 inch skillet. Add bread and hazelnuts and cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until bread is toasted on both sides, about 3 minutes. Add the garlic and cook, stirring constantly, for about 30 seconds.

Transfer bread mixture to a food processor and pulse until coarsely chopped, about 5 pulses. Add the red peppers, vinegar, honey, paprika, salt, cayenne pepper and the remaining tablespoon of olive oil. Pulse until finely chopped, 5-8 pulses. Sauce can be refrigerated, tightly sealed, for up to 2 days.

Use it: Pour it over broiled or broiled pork chops, lamb chops, or chicken breasts or thighs. It is delicious on slices of toasted French baguette or roasted vegetables.

Green Goddess sauce, dip or dressing

The classic tarragon-tinged Green Goddess dressing was invented in 1923 by Philip Roemer, the head chef of the iconic Palace Hotel in San Francisco, to dress up an artichoke salad for celebrity guest, Broadway actor George Arliss . The British actor was playing the lead role in a play called ‘The Green Goddess’, hence the name of the new dressing.

(Unless your tastes lean towards racist, colonial-leaning films, best to skip the silent version of the 1923 play and the 1930 Walkie-Talkie remake, and focus instead on the delight of the impeccable dressing. .)

The classic Green Goddess dressing is easy to make at home — and this version skips the anchovies.  (Getty Images)

A classic green goddess contains anchovies. This milder version omits the small salt fish, uses the traditional bounty of fresh herbs and fresh lemon juice, and adds sour cream with the mayonnaise. And it works just as well as a sauce, dip, or dressing.

Quick Green Goddess Dressing

Makes 1¾ cups

Ingredients

3/4 cup mayonnaise

3/4 cup sour cream

1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

1/4 cup chopped fresh chives

3 tablespoons chopped fresh tarragon

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

2 garlic cloves, peeled, minced

Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

It’s been another crazy week in the wine world, so buckle up to browse this week’s news.

© Nova FM | Pop star Dua Lipa savors the wines of Argentina.

Do you even have a wine business until you get a celebrity endorsement?

That’s this week’s big question as we scour the new threads to find any stories you might have missed. And a lot has happened, with the Argentinian wine industry getting a nice little shoutout from a music star. Continue reading…

Dua Lipa praises Argentinian wine

International pop star Dua Lipa, currently touring South America on her Future Nostalgia Tour, appears to have had a crush on Argentine pizza and wine during her stop in the capital Buenos Aires this week. Posting a series of snaps on Instagram which included a number of her eating pizza and drinking red wine from a Riedel glass, the British singer wrote “good food, good wine, good memories, thank you Buenos Aires”.

The star also slipped a snapshot of a well-stocked Buenos Aires wine cellar including several Philippe Caraguel sparkling wines, a Bodega Rocamadre Viñas Viejas, a Bodegas Chacra Barda Pinot Noir, Pét-Nats (including an Alpamanta Breva Criolla and a Krontiras Afron Aglianico) and several Cara Sur wines including a Criolla.

No indication of the wine chosen and appreciated by the 27-year-old singer, but given the range displayed in the photo and her comment, we can assume that it was an Argentinian wine.

Dua Lipa’s tour continued in Santiago, Chile yesterday, with no indication as to whether she got a taste of that country’s winey production, only an Instagram Story featuring (predictably, perhaps- be) a photo of five cups of Pisco with the accompanying title “Pisco”.

She is performing tonight in Bogota, Colombia.

France overtakes Spain for wine production

Harvesting continues at a brisk pace in Europe, with French media welcoming news (from the Committee of Professional Agricultural Organizations of the European Union, or Copa-Cogeca) that the country is set to regain its position as the world’s second largest producer of wine in 2022. , behind Italy but ahead of Spain.

This follows what looks to be an exceptional year in 2022 after the small French harvest in 2021 affected by frost. According to French wine publication La Revue du Vin de France, wine production this year will be up 16% from 2021, with 44 million hectoliters (4,400,000,000 or 4.4 billion litres). Unlike last year, Spain is expected to suffer more than France in 2022 due to drought conditions affecting yield more severely than its northeast neighbour.

Italy, France and Spain will produce more than 130 million hectoliters of wine (13 billion litres) in 2022. This is 1% more than in 2021.

High-end bottles confiscated at the Argentinian border

More wine news from Argentina this week where nearly 2,000 premium bottles were confiscated at the Brazilian border worth 11 million Argentine pesos (US$78,000) after border agents discovered irregularities in documentation and distribution records.

The seizure, by representatives of the Federal Administration of Public Revenue (AFIP), was part of a wider control of companies, logistics and distribution companies in and around the border town of Bernardo de Irigoyen, in the northern Argentina. A total of 40 companies were spot-checked in a cross-border operation that included Brazilian federal tax officials, members of the Argentine National Institute of Viticulture (INV) and the Argentine Federal Police .

Other goods worth 28 million pesos (US$200,000) were seized and six customs and tax offenses were committed. According to reports, a company labor force survey was also conducted with 28 workers, one-third of whom were not registered by their employers.

As for the seized wine: no news on the brands in question although most news outlets showed boxes of Tocornal (a Chilean brand from major producer Cono Sur, but not exactly a premium label per se).

Bernardo de Irigoyen and his immediate Brazilian neighbors Dionísio Cerqueira and Barracão often make headlines in this way. Last year, lawyer Juan María López was shot and killed in Bernardo de Irigoyen in what was believed to be an attack linked to wine trafficking across the border.

We also reported the brazen robbery of 800,000 pesos (US$5,600) worth of wine from a truck in the area last year – see Thieves bag $800,000 of wine in a truck robbery in northern Argentina (article no. 5).

La Rioja launches a documentary series on the harvest

Kicking off two weeks earlier than usual, Spain’s Rioja wine region is also launching a free docu-harvest series. Dubbed “The Heart of the Harvest”, the five-episode series offers “a live, behind-the-scenes tour of the craftsmanship, culture, tradition and landscape of Spain’s best wine region”.

“There is no place like Rioja during the harvest,” the website explains. “That’s exactly why we’re creating an immersive experience that allows wine lovers around the world to experience Rioja at harvest time.”

Found online, the series, which debuted on August 31, is currently on episode three (The Winemaker), having so far covered The Grower and The Picker. Coming soon: The Consejo (unlikely to feature the minutiae of must weight checking, clerical work, or the sterility of wine approval tastings, but it will be interesting to see what angle they take) and La Celebration (which shouldn’t disturb the production team any metaphorical headache).

Rare spirits hit the US market

Brentwood Auction House in Vancouver, Washington (just north of Portland, Oregon, for our non-US readers) is hosting a major sale of premium whiskeys this month – many of which have never been seen on the North American coasts. The bottles are the personal collection of The Whiskey Wash owner and founder, Nino Kilgore-Marchetti.

The auction covers more than 1,200 bottles of “world-class spirits representing many years of painstaking collection of the finest whiskeys and other spirits from around the world,” according to a press release from the auction house. The collection is part of the Whiskey Writer’s Auction Series which is run in partnership with Benchmark Wine & Spirits of Washington, DC.

Highlights from the auction (Chapter Three of the sale began on Thursday and can be viewed on the Brentwood website) include:

  • The Dalmore Astrum 40 years and Aurora 45 years
  • Glenfarclas 50 years
  • Glenglassaugh 51 years old 1963
  • Selected vintages of Highland Park Orcadian (1964, 1968, 1970, 1971)
  • Bunnahabhain 46 years old Islay Eich Bhana Lir
  • Glengoyne 40 Year Old Highland
  • Selection of special bottlings from The Macallan 18 and 25 years old
  • Selected bottlings of Teeling Vintage Reserve Irish Whiskey
  • Selection of rare versions of Wild Turkey Bourbon
  • John Walker & Sons Odyssey Rare Triple Malt

The Norman vineyard celebrates its first harvest

Another addition to our informal series on lesser-known French vineyards comes to you this week from Normandy’s Cotentin peninsula where winemaker François Lecourt harvested his first grapes at Barneville-Carteret on the English Channel coast, across from the sea northeast of Jersey.

Lecourt’s one-year-old vines (he had wanted to wait until 2023 for his first harvest but couldn’t resist) extend over 1.5 hectares and are planted with so-called “Piwi” hybrids (crosses resistant to mushrooms of American vines and European grape varieties), Chardonnay and a little Pinot Noir. A hedge, to protect against wind damage, surrounds the site.

“This project took a lot of time and funding,” Lecourt told regional newspaper La Presse de la Manche. “Although I was able to acquire seven hectares of land for future growth, as well as 80% of the equipment needed for winemaking, I still lack a winery and winery facilities. Without these and customs approval, I can’t produce alcohol yet.”

Lecourt currently has 6,000 vines planted in its Muûs vineyard (which means “best” in the local dialect), to which 14,000 will be added. The location of the projected winery has been identified and it hopes to produce its first commercial wines by 2023.

Archbishop Joseph Ochola Omolo of the ELCK preaches for the 2022 ILC World Conference during a visit to Neema Lutheran College.

KENYA – On the morning of Thursday, September 14, 2022, participants of the 2022 International Lutheran Council (ILC) World Conference took an excursion to Matongo to visit Neema Lutheran College, the seminary of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Kenya (ELCK) , the host church.

There they joined members of the seminary community for a matins service in Swahili. The service also included a Swahili anthem that conference attendees learned throughout the conference: “Yesu Wangu Simwachi.” A seminary student served as liturgist, while Archbishop ELCK Joseph Ochola Omolo preached on John 4, emphasizing what it means to worship God in spirit and in truth. A Bible study on 1 Kings 8:22-30 followed, led by the Reverend Joseph Abuor, a PhD student from Kenya.

Rev. Dr. Steven Schumacher (right), ILCAA Director of Accreditation and Rev. Dr. Joseph Tom Omolo, Principal of Neema Lutheran College.

Following this, the conference heard a report from the Rev. Dr. Steven Schumacher of the ILC International Accreditation Agency (ILCAA). The ILCAA is a new initiative of the ILC that “will strengthen Lutheran denominational theological education,” he explained. The program will ensure that participating seminaries and colleges all provide a strong theological education that is recognizable and transferable to other institutions for postgraduate study.

In addition to providing standards for an institution’s educational program, mission and integrity, the ILCAA will also provide standards for: governance, administration and finance; planning and review; faculty, education and personnel; student services; and resources.

Liturgy, theology and culture

Rev. Dr. Joseph Tom Omolo talks about theology, liturgy and culture.

The morning session continued with the third of four major presentations on the conference theme. Rev. Dr. Joseph Tom Omolo, Principal of Neema Lutheran College, gave a lecture titled “The Relationship Between Liturgy, Theology and Culture.”

Dr. Omolo argued that for Christian worship to be properly introduced into a given culture, it is necessary “to balance the local and universal natures of Christian liturgy, so that the primary meaning of liturgy is neither lost or communicated unintelligibly to the people. .” The key to finding this balance is careful fidelity to the doctrine underlying liturgical expression: “the content of worship”, he explained, must remain “consistent with the doctrine of the Church and the whole of the Christian narrative”.

“Meaningful worship is that in which Christ’s gift of life and salvation is offered to sinful man in clear and intelligible language so that people may experience this gift in a comprehensible way,” concluded Dr Omolo. But in pursuing such adaptation, he cautioned, “care must be taken that the liturgy remains Christian in heart and purpose, and continues to bear the hallmarks of the catholicity of the Church of Christ. To achieve this balance, inculturation must take seriously the complementary dynamic between liturgy and doctrine, so that the celebration of the liturgy in the different cultures takes place within the framework of the Christian language anchored in the biblical narrative.

ILC-Chile Bishop Juan Pablo Lanterna (left) speaks about the new Spanish Lutheran hymn.

Following Principal Omolo’s presentation, Bishop Juan Pablo Lanterna of the Confessional Lutheran Church of Chile (ILC-Chile), also touched on the subject of liturgy and culture, giving a concrete example in the Spanish anthem recently published and produced in Latin America: Himnario Luterano. The anthem was first conceived by the Chilean Church 14 years ago, eventually becoming a joint project of ILC-Chile, the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Paraguay (IELP) and the Church Evangelical Lutheran of Argentina (IELA).

The new anthem is “a contribution from mission field to mission field,” Bishop Lanterna said, “a contribution from Latin America to Latin America, and from confessional Lutherans to confessional Lutherans.”

Himnario Luterano.

Indeed, Bishop Lanterna continued, the new hymn can rightly be considered the third most important Lutheran denominational publication ever published in Spanish, preceded by the classic 1569 translation of the Bible by Casiodoro de Reina as well as the Spanish translation. of the Lutheran Confessions.

The hymn, which includes hundreds of classic and contemporary hymns as well as new services for Matins, Vespers and Compline, was greeted with joy by Spanish-speaking Lutherans. Asked about the impact the hymn will have, the missionaries who initiated the project were clear: “They responded unanimously,” Bishop Lanterna explained, that it will help Spanish-speaking Lutherans to “revalue and discover the theology Confessional Lutheran Liturgy”.

The morning session ended with lunch on the seminar grounds.

“Argentina, 1985” is a painful but necessary film for Latin America. This Argentinian film, premiering this weekend at one of the most prestigious festivals in the world -Venice-, tells the story of prosecutors Julio Strassera and Luis Moreno Ocampo, who in 1985 brought to justice the commanders of the last dictatorship in the Argentine army.

The military were accused of having committed crimes against humanity under the regime of Jorge Rafael Videla; he considered – along with Alfredo Stroessner of Paraguay – one of the bloodiest dictators in South America.

The film, although a fictional drama, is inspired by these real events and shows how the two prosecutors faced the case unintimidated by political power and threats. “The 1985 trial is a fundamental fact for Argentina. It inaugurates democracy and at the same time condemns violence as a possibility. We believed that the cinema should represent it, and we are proud to have been the first to present it to the world. Why hasn’t a movie like this been made before? I would not know how to say it. It may have taken a long time to be able to tell this story”, said director Santiago Miter during the presentation of the film in Venice. Mitre, in addition to directing the film, worked with Mariano Llinás on the screenplay.

The cast of “Argentina, 1985” is made up of famous actor Ricardo Darín (“The Secret in Their Eyes” and “Wild Tales”) as Julio Strassera, and Peter Lanzani (“The Clan” and “The Angel “) as Luis Moreno Ocampo. Darín and Lanzani are joined by Norman Briski, Laura Paredes, Claudio Da Passano, Alejandra Flechner, Carlos Portaluppi and Alejo García Pintos.

The 140-minute film is produced by La Unión de los Ríos, Kenya Films, Infinity Hill and Amazon Studios.

The production will be released theatrically in Argentina on September 29 and will be available on the Prime Video platform from October 21.

SPANISH PRODUCTIONS AT THE VENICE FILM FESTIVAL

“Argentina, 1985” is one of two Spanish-language films competing in the official section of the 79th edition of the Venice International Film Festival, which runs from August 31 to September 10. The other film is “Bardo. False chronicle of some truths” directed by the Oscar-winning Mexican director Alejandro González Iñárritu. This film tells the life of a journalist who returns to his country to face his family, his memories and the new reality that surrounds it.

Audiences will have to wait until Saturday, September 10 to find out which film wins the Golden Lion for Best Picture and who the Volpi Cup-winning actors and actresses are in the Italian city.

Attack raises doubts over Argentine vice president’s security protocols https://gicarg.org/attack-raises-doubts-over-argentine-vice-presidents-security-protocols/ Sat, 03 Sep 2022 19:48:33 +0000 https://gicarg.org/attack-raises-doubts-over-argentine-vice-presidents-security-protocols/ Buenos Aires, Argentina — Every day for two weeks, the routine was the same: the powerful Argentinian vice-president Cristina Fernández was greeted by a crowd of feverish supporters who wanted to touch their leader.

Buenos Aires, Argentina — Every day for two weeks, the routine was the same: the powerful Argentinian vice-president Cristina Fernández was greeted by a crowd of feverish supporters who wanted to touch their leader. And every day she obliged and approached them.

But on Thursday, the routine flesh-pressing took a sinister turn when a man in the sea of ​​supporters pointed a handgun inches from the vice president’s face and pulled the trigger with a distinct click.

The loaded .38 caliber semi-automatic weapon obviously jammed and the suspect was arrested. Now, the apparent assassination attempt raises questions about whether the most influential woman in Argentine politics over the past two decades should change her relationship with the many faithful who are constantly looking for a handshake or an autograph.

“Cristina was cornered,” said Silvana Venegas, a 43-year-old woman who witnessed the event. “She was easy prey, very easy.”

For a few minutes after, Fernández continued to sign autographs and wave. Her security service grabbed the shooter but did not remove her from the area.

Argentine media reported that Fernández told the investigating judge that she was unaware that a gun had been pointed at her until she entered her apartment. She also confirmed speculation that when she appeared to bend down, she was actually crouching down to pick up a book that had fallen to the floor.

Jorge Vidal, a public safety expert who worked for the Buenos Aires city government, said the security response to the incident was “far from a professional performance”.

While security teams must do as those they are guarding tell them, he said, “politicians must understand that any hands that are stretched out to touch or greet them should not be patted or shaken. “.

No politician stirs more passion in Argentina than Fernández, 69, who is revered by some for her left-wing welfare policies and reviled by others as corrupt and power-hungry, and she has long drawn political strength of her proximity to the crowds who venerate her.

Supporters compare her to Eva Perón, the wife of Juan Domingo Perón, a military officer elected president in 1946. As First Lady, Perón espoused women’s rights and was known as a benefactor of the poor. After her untimely death in 1952, she became part of Argentina’s national mythology.

Outpourings of devotion to Fernández have intensified recently after a prosecutor sought to send her to prison for 12 years over corruption allegations involving public works while she was president from 2007 to 2015.

Fernández and his supporters say the case is an act of political vengeance, and the facade of his building in the Recoleta neighborhood of downtown Buenos Aires has become a sanctuary for hundreds of supporters outraged by the accusations. against her.

As she left and returned each day, she shook hands with men and women who cried “Cristina, I love you!” She also signed dozens of copies of her political autobiography, titled “Sinceramente,” or “sincerely” in Spanish.

A young man who was in the crowd Thursday night said he was right in front of Fernández when the handgun came out.

“I tell Cristina that I love her, and she caresses me. I see an arm sticking out…with a gun,” the man, who was only identified as Javier for security reasons, told reporters on Friday after telling the judge his story. instruction.

The only previous incident occurred last Saturday, when tensions grew between Fernández supporters and police who sought to evict them due to complaints from neighbors.

The vice president complained about the treatment of her supporters and accused Buenos Aires Mayor Horacio Rodríguez Larreta of besieging her, and security around the building was soon released.

“We noticed that there were fewer police officers. I saw two from the federal police. It was full of people,” Venegas said.

Javier, the young witness, said in court that he and other supporters detained the suspect, not the police.

“I’m catching it and others,” he said.

The vice president has not spoken publicly since the incident. Some friends and political allies were able to see her.

“Cristina is shocked, shocked,” said Senator Oscar Parrilli, close to the vice president. “She’s fine thankfully because she has her mind and temper intact.”

The attempted shooting rocked Argentina, a country that has a history of political violence but has not seen a similar attack since restoring democracy in 1983 after years of dictatorship.

President Alberto Fernández, who is not related to the vice president, said the gun was loaded with five bullets and for “a reason not yet technically confirmed, it was not fired”.

The suspect has been identified as Fernando André Sabag Montiel, a 35-year-old Brazilian street vendor who has lived in Argentina since 1998 and has no criminal record. He was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder. Authorities have shed no light on a possible motive and are investigating whether the shooter acted alone or as part of a larger conspiracy.

The day after the incident, supporters of Fernandez demonstrated across the country under the slogan “Everyone with Cristina”.

Buenos Aires’ central Plaza de Mayo is packed with people of all ages holding handwritten signs with messages such as “Always with Cristina, people don’t forget” and “Cristina is from the people and no one touches her”.

At her house, meanwhile, dozens of federal agents stood guard.

Fernández emerged and approached a group of supporters to greet them, then got into a car to drive to an unknown destination.
