Ulmer Before Detour

a Bashar Shbib film

ULMER BEFORE DETOUR - (In Post Production)

Documentary, 83:00 min, 2020, color, HD

 

Synopsis

Edgar G. Ulmer remained in the shadows of filmmaking history until the early seventies. His tumultuous carreer spanned from Europe to America and back since the 1920’s. Ulmer Before Detour covers the early years of his filmmaking up to, and including Detour (1945). The film not only covers his Ukrainian and Yiddish films, his health care industrials and his first newly remastered American feature Damaged Lives (1933) but also his most popular films since his revival The Black Cat (1934) and Detour. The film also shows how Ulmer’s persona lives in his movies, permeates his narrative and colors his creative choices.

Europa

a Bashar Shbib film

EUROPA (In Production)

Documentary, TBA, 2020, Europe, (HD).

CO-PRODUCED WITH FILMS LOIRE

Synopsis

This feature documentary reflects mainly on the expansion of the European project into neighbouring countries that do not have ‘common’ European values. The first sentence of the preamble of the European Charter of Fundemental Rights of the European Union states: The peoples of Europe, in creating an ever closer union among them, are resolved to share a peaceful future based on common values. The Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union outlines for the purpose of EU law, firm political, social, and economic rights for European Union (EU) citizens and residents. The Charter was drafted by the European Convention proclaimed on 7 December 2000 by the European Parliament. The film explores these common European values and their socia-political ramifications; the possible inclusion and exclusion of peoples and countries based on their uncommon ethnic, religious and social values. Does and/or has this preamble to the constitution caused problems for Turkey or Albania for example in joining the Union? Do Slavic Orthodox countries like Serbia have equal access? What about newly forming countries that wish to separate from their constitutional obligations like Scotland or Catalunia?
