PARK IT RIGHT

Director: Donny Kingsley Okoh.
Five Traffic Wardens who are University Students and migrants are determined to prove to the public that there is more to them than their big bums and issuing parking tickets. Being a Migrant worker and student with an accent in the UK is a big problem for Chris and his colleagues and they embark on a mission to uplift the image of traffic wardens and are determined to go extra miles. Albeit the daily difficulties inherent in being a traffic warden, Chris, Emeka, Sanjay, Everton, Heather, Colin and Lucy utilize all their skills to show the public that their temporary career path do not define who they are and that whenever people see them, they should not get scared that they will be fined for not packing properly rather; they should be ready to be entertained by their wits and dancing capabilities. Their quest to help change the views of the public about traffic wardens and gain acceptability is dealt a heavy blow when Colin falls in love with a fellow student (Jade). In his “never say never” attitude, Colin decides to sing to her about his undying love in front of the whole class and in turn, makes himself and his colleagues a laughing stock.

End DIFF on a high

user
31 July: Day 7 The last day of the festival arrived with Durban basking in sunlight. I saw three award-winning films today, the wonderful and candid Position among the stars, the shocking lesbian drama Circumstance and closed off with black butterflies, a fly-on-the-wall production about the life of the iconic SA poet, Ingrid Jonker. I loved Position among the stars with its colourful family who would have felt right at home in reality TV, breathtaking photography - especially the wa...

Love and pride

user
30 July: Day 6 The second last day of DIFF was my best day of all. I saw four films and they all have one thing in common - queer cinema - although the content is very different. I don't know if these films were scheduled on the same day intentonally or by accident. I, however, was very surprised to see that the inaugural Durban Pride parade also took place on this day with the gay flag draped over City Hall. I see myself as an afficionado of gay cinema and could not wait for the films ...

Dancing with Dolphins in Festroia

The Portuguese already had their earthquake and somehow managed to survive and rebuild most of Lisbon since 1755. Although there was a little tremor during the week (about two-and-a-half on the Svetoslav Richter scale, or however it is called when measuring how much the earth moved for you), the otherwise sunny city of Setubal, one of Portugal's  most important port-resorts and home of the poet Bocage,manages to mount the 27th edition of the international film festival Festroia surmounting ma...

Review of the Palme d'Or The Tree of Life

user
Metaphysical in its narrative, ambitious in its goal, epic in its scale, and gorgeously beautiful and surreal in its visual style and art design, “The Tree of Life” is Terrence Malick’s career-summation work, a film he has been wanting (and destined) to make for decades. Read about Lubezki’s stunning imagery http://www.emanuellevy.com/comment/tree-of-life-creating-the-stunning-visuals/   A provocative and challenging film on any number of levels, Malick’s long...

Sander Francken on BARDSONGS at CPHPIX 2011

user
Since BARDSONGS (2010) screened in Palm Springs this past PSIFF 2011, I’ve been speaking to director Sander Francken about doing an interview about what I thought was an extremely intriguing subject for a film, that of oral storytelling in a time where storytelling has changed so much that the old modes have long since departed us. Or have they? Sander’s film is a tribute to oral storytelling and ‘bardsongs’. I tracked him down in Copenhagen at CPHPIX 2011 where his film screened and we ...
