2:30pm – Screening | 4:45pm – Masterclass
After an innocent afternoon at the beach with boys from school, five orphan sisters living in a small Turkish village are punished by their grandmother and uncle. The more the sisters rebel against their conservative relatives, the tighter the screws get as virginity tests are applied, steel bars are installed and marriages are arranged. Mustang is colour-graded by Yov Moor. The film is an apt example of colour grading an art house film which is able to remain faithful to its creative intentions, and can communicate effectively to achieve popular success. It won the Label Europa Cinemas Prize at the Cannes Directors’ Fortnight and was nominated for Best Foreign Language Film at the Oscar and the Golden Globes.
Masterclass on Colour Grading with Yov Moor
Yov Moor will introduce the many concepts and functions of colour grading - how it can refine a film’s emotional texture and enhance its expression, what are the differences between grading commercial and arthouse films, how every stage of filmmaking affects colour grading, the differences of digital and celluloid grading, and other curious questions that you might have about colour grading!
