KOAN - A Film by Osvaldo Ponce & Karina Kracoff - Trailer (English Subtitles - 02'00'')

KOAN is born of the need to tell a luminous history. We believe in a Cinema of Peace where ”Everything Is Possible”. A KOAN in Zen tradition, is a problem that the teacher asks the students to check their progress. The students must withdraw from the rational thinking and increase their level of consciousness to sense what really is asking the teacher.  

Laurie Anderson's "Heart of a Dog" Has Heart and Soul

For more than four decades, Laurie Anderson has been telling us stories about her soul. In the avant-gardists's entrancing new movie Heart of a Dog, she expresses the spirit of her deceased rat terrior as well. Lolabelle, as Anderson told me in 2010, was her "best friend." So it's not surprising that the documentary is dedicated to that companionate canine's loving memory. More about that here: http://www.thalo.com/articles/view/1146/laurie_andersons_heart_of_a_dog_has_he...

Chuck Norris vs Communism

Chance to catch this fun movie next week in London in a joint screening with Eunic at Picturehouse Central - all details on our website: Communist Romania - 1980s. Culturally isolated, ideologically censored; all images of life outside the Iron Curtain are banned and TV is reduced to a couple of hours of propaganda bulletins each day. From the drab concrete housing blocks to the food ration queues, an overwhelming fear of state surveillance had prevented the people from stepping out of line. ...

Talvar, Review: Whodunit? Doesn’t matter!

"Wolf Totem": Jean-Jacques Annaud on Running with Wolves

user
  We often hear that directing animals and children is hell on a filmmaker. So why is Jean-Jacques Annaud nostalgic about the 200 horses, 1,000 sheep, 35 wolves and smattering of young humans he worked with for his new picture Wolf Totem? Maybe his fascination with wolves has something to do with it. As the title indicates, they're the real stars of this gorgeous 3-D spectacle.  Drawn from Jiang Rong's semi-autobiographical novel, Wolf Totem tells the epic saga of a young Bei...
