Department news

AVPR

As you know, Zsófia Enyedi started as a Client Relationship Manager for AVPR last month. She will visit the Leiden office for further training from February 19-21, 2018.

CAM

Lars was in the Budapest office on January 24 and 25. The CAM Group (with the 2 guests of honor Said and Peter) had a very nice dinner in Pomodoro, a.o. to say “bye” to Zsófia. She was thanked for the great work she had done over the last 2,5 years for the Commercial Film and TV group. At the same time, Evelin was welcomed as Zsófia's replacement. The dinner was also a great opportunity to relax as it's always very busy during the 1st month of the year.

Peter Kostense went to the screening of YOUTH at the International Film Festival Rotterdam in the last weekend of December. Directed by Feng Xiaogang, the Chinese Spielberg, famous for blockbusters like A World Without Thieves (2004) and Aftershock (2010). His features guarantee box office hits in China, besides global appeal and international distribution. YOUTH is a coming-of-age story against the background of the Cultural Revolution and it’s aftermath. We follow a provincial military-arts troupe in the People's Liberation Army, whose duty is promoting cultural and revolutionary values through music and dance. Even with very little knowledge of Chinese history one will highly appreciate the story because of universal human elements and experiences: growing-up, being bullied, class-difference, music and art, love and the underdog becoming the unexpected hero. On top of this, the film is a marvel of colour and music; a cinematography that brings a colour palette along the lines of Zhang Yimou and Almodovar.
