the Seven Tapes

Director: yair qedar.
"The Seven Tapes" is a cinematic journey into the world of Yona Wallach, a legendary poet, who's radical life and poetry ended in an early age, leaving behind a myth and a trail of admirers. More than 25 years after her death, seven recorded tapes from her last interview are discovered. In these tapes, Wallach confesses on her life journey: her attraction to madness, her experiments with drugs, her relationship with god and about the dangers of writing. The film weaves her testimony with interviews, with rare archival footage from the sixties to the eighties, with her poems and with animation that revives Wallach's thoughts, images and visions. THE SEVEN TAPES is a troubling encounter with an exceptional artist, whose riddle remains unsolved to this day.

Francophrenia: James Franco Unsheltered

Tribeca Film Festival By Ioannis Pappos In quantum laboratories around the world you can see an object in two different places at once. Yes, at the same time. Laugh, I used to, but quantum physics is a radical science. I studied electrical engineering, was taught Heisenberg’s theory that atoms are not things but rather tendencies, and still I can’t totally believe that one object can be in more than one place at the same time. Heisenberg was the first paradox in my adult life, so...

RE-CUT AN EARLIER FILM IN B&W and “GOING HOME” WENT TO THE LHFF

user
“Our World Order” is re-cut in black and white  I recently re-cut one of my first films which is now entitled “Our World Order - redux”. The primary driving factor for re-cutting it was to make it black and white which I had started a long time ago, but was re-motivated as of late by “The Artist”. But as long as I was going to do the change to monochrome, I also cleaned up a few other things and before you know it was almost a new film. The story line is unchanged, but I...
