    Cinema Europe in Zagreb will host another first-rate world exhibition opening on October 12th 2007 at 20.00 hrs. The exhibition ”Still frames ? portraits of movie stars’ is brought to you by 5th Zagreb Film Festival and Sony Alpha. Six renowned Italian cinematographers, Gianni Caramanico, Emilio Lari, Egidio Poggi, Franco Vitale, Mimmo Cattarinich, Romolo Eucalitto, gathered together under project ‘La Bottega delle Immagini del Cinema’, decided to bring together their love for films and photography and put their works on display.

    The exhibition presents 72 previously unpublished photographs of world renown directors and actors who made movie history, all captured at movie sets: Martine Scorsese giving instructions to Robert De Niro on the set of ‘Raging Bull’, Bernard Bertolucci surrounded by dunes in a Nigerian desert, Peter Sellers wearing a bull fighter’s costume and holding a guitar, as well as  Roberto Benigni, Pedro Almodovar, Anthony Quinn, Katherine Hepburn and many others. The exhibition reveals their baffled, sincere, spontaneous, occasionally ironic side, but we always get to see them as new and unfamiliar faces.

    ‘In order to get a vivid image, you can’t have your technical means outbalance spontaneity and intuition. The secret of quality photography lies in blending of the beholder’s and the object’s emotion in one single moment’, claim the authors of the exhibition. 

    The opening includes a screening of a fifteen-minute movie ‘Derelict Child’ produced by Andrija ?tampar School of Public Health back in 1930, to be accompanied by Branko Buli? on the piano. It is the first and only urban film produced by the School of Public Health and the oldest preserved feature film made in Zagreb. With this screening, ZFF marks 80th anniversary of the School’s foundation and of first organized film industry in Croatia.

    The exhibition remains open until the official closing of Zagreb Film Festival on October 27th, 2007.
