"B is for Bomb," and W is for WInner (not George "W" Bush)

#
The American short film, "B is for Bomb," directed by Carey Mckenzie won the Official Cannes 2006 Online Competition for short films the other day. This 10 minute documentary is narrarated by a young girl, explaining the problems with bombs and nuclear warfare by going through the letters of the alphabet, giving an innocent prospective on a deathly scary and very politcal topic, ranging for historical lesson letters such as "C is for Cold War," to poetic reflections such as, "E is for Enemy, F i...

The festival catches the films that are produced between the Venice, Berlin and Cannes festival so its an excellent showcase to attend to see the latest Asian films. Udine hopes together with the Venice Film Festival to double the amount of Asian films to the Venice Friuli-Venezia-Giulia...
