Long verboten DDR films surface in Cottbus

user
The 16th Cottbus International Film Festival festival closed its five day run on Saturday November 18th with the distribution of the prizes and the premiere of the new German film "Herzentöter" (Heartbreaker) by Cottbus born director Bernd Heiber.

Interview With Rob Stewart

Sunday, November 12-----When nature photographer and master diver Rob Stewart began his project to document the beauty of sharks in their natural underwater environment, little did he realize that his innate fascination would bring him into conflict with governments and organized crime who profit from the mass killing of these endangered animals. With shark fins prized as a delicacy and shark cartilage falsely promoted as a cure-all for disease and impotence, the illegal killing of sharks arou...

Film In Profile: Iron Island

Saturday, September 16---For several decades, the American government has successfully demonized the country of Iran, referring to it as an "evil empire" as a member of the "axis of evil". The rhetoric has ratcheted up in recent months, as Iran attempts to take hold of its own destiny by producing nuclear power, and possibly nuclear weapons. But what do we really know about this ancient culture that is one of the most influential nations in the Middle East? What more can we know without trave...

Greek Film Fest to open with box-office smash Sirens in the Aegean

user
Greece’s most successful film Sirens in the Aegean will open the 14th annual Greek Film Festival at Palace Norton Street Cinemas on Wednesday September 13 at 6:30pm. The film directed by Nikos Perakis is a farcical tale about Greek Soldiers impounding a Turkish yacht full of illegal immigrants, two beauty pageant contestants and a camera crew. A sure fire plot to produce a very comic situation! Sirens in the Aegean is Perakis’ follow up to his 1984 cult classic Loafing and Camouflage, a sati...

Karlovy Vary: Jacqueline Bisset and Luc Besson are no show

user
Actress Jacqueline Bisset and French director Luc Besson called in their regrets, cancelling their expected visit to Karlovy Vary, but the celebrity slack has been taken up by the arrival of somewhat less shining lights of interest, and the party scene surges on unabated. The latest arrival was rapidly rising British actress Saffron Burrows, here to present her new film "Gangster No. 1" which, she says, is perhaps too violent for her own taste. I‘m worried about the audience watching it today,...

American Politics With A French Twist

user
It is should be news to no one that the Americans and the French are still locked in their love/hate relationship. We Americans do love the French culture and its emphasis on beauty, refinement and good taste. The French do love our the American can-do attitude and our pioneering spirit. But since 9/11, our different geopolitics has driven a wedge into that relationship that has pushed us both into separate corners. Perhaps that is the reason why so many American films that are openly critical ...

Eating in Cannes

user
When summer rolls around just before the film festival, more and more restaurants open up, more stands get built so that and you cannot walk 20 feet without seeing some place to get some grub. Needless to say, the French don't like to stay hungry. The variety of food is great as are the different ways and places to eat. From candy tables, ice cream stands, panini shops, and small outdoor terraces, see how the real Cannois, as well as all of the visitors eat! ...
