Confronting The Shadows Of History

user
  HENRY OF NAVARRE (Jo Baier, Germany/France/Spain)  It is always tempting to ascertain a link or a thematic accent in the programming of a film festival. Threads are there but creating a strong argument in that direction is always a bit of a false road. In truth, film festivals come together based on the films that are made available to them. However, as with an individual, each Festival has its own distinct personality and interests.  At the Montreal World Film Festival, ...

Cary Grant: Now That's A Movie Star

user
  You can have your Tom Cruises, your Ashton Kutchers, your Robert Pattinsons....as far as I am concerned, the definition of a REAL movie star is Cary Grant. Evidently the Brooklyn Academy of Music agrees with me, because they are in the midst of their second Grant retrospective through the end of July. If one has never seen the great man on the big screen.....pounce. After last year’s successful series, BAMcinématek honors the leading man whose repertoire is mpressive and esse...

Cannes Palme d'or review: Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives

user
The security to get into the film Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives from Thailand at the Palais was extremely tight.  When you are at Cannes one feels cut off from outside news. Yet we had heard of the burning of two theatres in Thailand during the latest protests. That situation and this movie, make other films we have seen here almost surreal. Uncle Boonmee is a story of ghosts and Buddhist ritual. It is set in modern day in the country where a man is preparing to d...

YOUNG POLITICIANS (Except)

#
Director: MESAPE PATRICK EWANG.
The Young Politicians is a film set wtithin the context of a society confused with the very colours of modern democracy. In a community where greed and embezzlement reigns perpetrated by mediocres in influential posts, the future of a whole generation is in geopardy.Thus the choice of children as hope for a brighter  young generation to come and correct the mistakes of the old heartless and selfish generation who do not want to resign for the young.Princess stands out as the voice of the new generation, challenging two gentlemen Alo and Ngoleson who seem to be the replica of the old generation. it is suspence filled and who says the voice of the woman is not important for any meaningful developemeent to take place.In a very rich dialogue with campaign speech slogans, this video proposes solutions and depicts a lot of elements of good governance policies and gender inequality that characterises the African community.

The East End Film Festival has arrived.

user
  After all the excitement, the build up, the late nights, the Festival is here. It's just as well, as both the sense of anticipation and the steady accumulation of coffee in our collective systems was leading to some serious jitters. But that has all become moot as we dust ourselves down, spruce ourselves up and press our shirts and dresses for tonight's opening night gala film. We're delighted to be presenting a special screening of Barney Platts-Mills 1969 classic BRONCO BULLFROG, a tale...
