LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD-CARLOS SAURA
Born in 1932 in Huesca, Saura spent the civil war years (1936–39) in Republican territory, and this left an unmistakable
imprint on his work. Saura was born the second of four children. His mother, who was a pianist, instilled in him the love for music, and his brother, Antonio, who was a noted abstract expressionist painter, the passion for art. His father was a lawyer. Carlos Saura is an excellent photographer, an activity that he shares in a sporadic way with the making of films.'Carmen', based on Prosper Merimee's 1845 novella, included musical passages from Georges Bizet's 1875 opera and fused rehearsal, performance, and a contemporary mirror of Merimee's plot; long portions of the film were danced without dialogue. Saura's later movies included 'El Dorado' (1988); 'Tango' (1998), which won an Academy Award nomination for best foreign film; 'Salome' (2002); and the documentary 'Fados' (2007). .

The Hunt/La caza

Spain/91min/1966
Direction: Carlos Saura

'The Hunt' is a disturbing depiction of how a lie can quickly become truth, a modern tale of a witch-hunt, injustice, guilt and ultimately, forgiveness. A fable on how
fragile a community can become when gossip, doubt and malice are allowed to flourish. It is a stirring portrait of a man struggling to exonerate himself, and a father and a son reaching out for each other as their world crumbles.Following a tough divorce, 40-year-old Lucas has a new girlfriend, a new job and is in the process of reestablishing his relationship with his teenage son, Marcus. But things go awry. Not a lot. Just a slight comment. A random lie. And as the snow falls and the Christmas lights are lit, the lie spreads like an invisible virus. The shock and mistrust gets out of hand, and the small community suddenly finds itself in a collective state of hysteria, while Lucas fights a lonely fight for his life and dignity.

Carmen

Spain/102min/1983
Direction: Carlos Saura

Goya in Bordeaux/Goya en Burdeos

Spain|Italy/100min/1999
Direction: Carlos Saura

The film is a masterpiece on the life of the famous painter Francisco De Goya, who is reputedly the father of modern art. Goya, at 82 and exiled in Bordeaux with the last of his lovers, Leocadia Zorrilla de Weiss, begins to reconstruct for his daughter Rosario the events that marked his life. In a series of flashbacks, Goya reflects upon a life that was affected by political unrest, poisoned passions and the ecstasy of fame. While all his famous paintings come alive one by one, moments of intense realism are mixed with visions of horrifying proportions. In this extraordinarily well-crafted movie, we also see the 82-year-old painter remembering his only true love, the Duchess of Alba, a woman who reshaped his life and the history of his day, although their relationship often ran into rough weather.

Adapting from one of the finest works of Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Arturo Ripstein presents this deeply moving tale of an old couple’s painful memories and false hopes.

CLARE DENIS
Sharada was born Saraswati Devi in Tenali, Guntur, Andhra Pradesh, India. Her first break came with the Akkineni Nageswara Rao starrer Iddaru Mithrulu, which was a major hit. Noted for the role in the film, she got chances from Tamil and Malayalam films as well. The year 1965 changed her career as Sharada carved her niche for herself in the Malayalam film industry with her performances in Shakuntala, Murappennu, Kattu Thulasi and Inapravukal. After that, she focused in Malayalam films, acting only a few roles in other languages. Recognition came in 1967 in the form of a national honorary award for her performances in various films of 1966 including Iruttinte Athmavu. The award was the predecessor to the National Film Award for Best Actress, which was instituted in 1968. In 1969, she won her first National Film Award for Best Actress for her performance in Thulabharam. She went on to win the award 2 more times, for Swayamvaram (1972, Malayalam) and Nimajjanam (1978, Telugu). She also won the Kerala State Film Awards for Best Actress one time.
