Out and proud or not?

  Gender and sexuality is one of the official themes at DIFF.   I saw three films today and a little-known surfer documentary stole the show. Out in the    line up is the story of how gay surfers struggle to fit in in one of the most macho sports. It    is polished, beautifully filmed, straight forward without offending and even funny. It is a    pity the doccie was only screened once as a wider audience should s...

The Grand Budapest Hotel, Review

The Grand Budapest Hotel Wes Anderson’s 8th feature film is inspired by the writings of Austrian writer Stefan Zweig (he admits to having “directly stolen” many ideas from Zweig’s works, as well as from his life). He pays tribute to Zweig in the credits, though he then takes co-credit for the film script. In terms of detail, scenic splendour, costumes, make-up and free-wheeling narrative, The Grand Budapest Hotel is an exciting experience. As a comedy, it falls short o...

Apartheid alive and well

    Racial and religious intolerance go hand in hand   Day 4 at DIFF consisted of two films that portray Apartheid - one set in modern SA and    the other in the West Bank.  Twenty years after democracy in SA, Fatherland was quite a shock. While most of South    Africa have embraced the rainbow nation, a small group of right wing extremists still    fight the ”negroids".  In this ...

The Tide Keeper (2014). Interview with filmmaker Alyx Duncan.

“Who knows how to stem the tide except through dreams?” Stunning short film 'The Tide Keeper' (2014) by Australian newcomer Alyx Duncan is a mesmerizing metaphor of the concept of time through the movements of the tides. Have you ever felt the panicked sensation of time running out and you not accomplishing what you feel you need to do in the short time you have on this earth? Duncan's film emits the feeling of choking anxiety of lost time through breathtaking images n...

Homophonia (2014). Interview with filmmaker Jim Jermanok.

One of the very special films selected to screen at this year's prestigious Palm Springs International Short Film festival was New York filmmaker Jim Jermanok's film 'Homophonia' (2014), an ironic comedy about America's seemingly endless debate on gay marriage rights. This is certainly a topic every American holds an opinion about, and this film tackles it from an East Coast and down to earth humane perspective. I recently asked Jim to say a few words about his film: JIM: ...
