Sitges Film Festival 2005 opening - Serenity

POSTED BY chrisdvanne ON Feb 16, 2012 / 0 COMMENTS


 

Director Joss Whedon and actors Summer Glau and Nathan Fillion made the opening of the 38th Sitges Film Festival on Sunday, October 9th, 2005 with Serenity.

 
38th Sitges Film Festival - Poster
 
The Sitges Festival, International Fantastic Film Festival of Catalonia, is a Spanish film festival that is one of the most recognizable ones held in Europe, considered the world's foremost international festival specializing in fantasy and horror movies.
 
Summer Glau's presentation at Sitges website :
 
Summer Glau (River) made her film debut with the teen comedy Sleepover. Born in San Antonio (Texas) she was a premiere ballerina at the Majestic Theatre in shows like Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme, The Happy Widow, Peer Gynt or Paint Your Wagon, until a leg injury put an end to her career. Living in Los Angeles she studied acting and began to perform in shows like Firefly, Angel and Cold Case.

Summer looked lovely wearing an off-the-shoulder sweater.

And here's a rare article that appeared in El País (Spain's largest selling newspaper) on October 10th, 2005 :

 
"THE DYNAMIC 'SPACE WESTERN' SERENITY OPENS THE SITGES FESTIVAL"
 
"A strange 38th edition of the Sitges Film Festival began yesterday; strange because it starts on a Sunday and will end on a Monday, but strange also for the films chosen for its inauguration. One, Joss Wheedon's Serenity, is a dynamic space western that falls fully into the generic typification chosen by the festival for many years, the cinema of the fantastic, and with its futuristic appearance, its creation of a powerful character (the child-medium -- half dreamer/visionary, half killing machine -- given life by the magnetic Summer Glau) and even its veiled political parable can aspire to be remembered among the well-chosen inaugurations of the last few years.

Based on a television series, Firefly, broadcast for the first time in 2002, Serenity tells a story within the forms of science fiction, but with characters belonging more to a western -- the life of a group of 'outlaws' that aid a seer/clairvoyant and her brother, pursued by the implacable machinery of the law, and confronted, moreover, by a group of horrific, murderous cannibals. It's a vigorous, lively film, making the mixture of exterior references its greatest weapon, even leaving space for a moderate and educated political parable that shows how those who believe themselves to possess the truth stop at nothing, though they do it in the name of Good and of the security of the citizens...."
