The surprises set in store by the organizers of Transilvania International Film Festival for the fifth edition of TIFF Sibiu carry on. An event concert and a special screening will top the bill of the second evening of TIFF Sibiu 2011.
Thursday, June 16, 2011, starting with 9 p.m., the well-known artist Goran Bregovic will appear before the audience in Piața Mare (Central Square), together with Wedding and Funeral Orchestra, in a show meant to celebrate the relationship between music and film. The concert will be followed by the screening of The Bear, directed by Dan Chișu, whose soundtrack is signed by Goran Bregovic. The audience in Sibiu will be able to listen to some of the best-known songs of the artist, featured on now famous albums, such as „Tales and songs from weddings and funerals” (2002), „Balkanica” (2000), „Silence of the Balkans” (1998), „Song book” (2000), „Music for films” (2000),„Ederlezi” (1998) and „Underground” (1995), as well as songs from the soundtrack of Dan Chișu's film.
Goran Bregovic returns to Romania, the place where he most likes to throw a concert, due to the public who motivates him, each time, to create outstanding shows, which heat up the atmosphere. During his music career, Bregovic signed several soundtracks which propelled him as one of the most well-rated omposers for film music. These include the ones made for Emir Kusturica's films: Time of the Gypsies, Arizona Dream, Underground.
Starting with 10 p.m., the giant screen in the Grand Square will “present” The Bear, a road-movie taking place in Romania in the early '90s.. The new director of the State Circus is trying to solve the institutions financial problems by selling the only bear - old and dying – to a German hunter. But, driven by a passion for their profession and love for bear, the artists from the circus oppose the director's decision and follow him to the location where the transaction would take place. Full of unexpected adventures experienced by the bear, circus employees, and all those who make their way out make The Bear the comedy of the year in Romania.
