The Art of Queuing

There are many things people to not know about the film festival in Cannes and one of these things is the challenge of queuing. In many of the theatres, anyone with a cinephile badge have access to see screenings, however, there are of course only a certain amount of seats in a theatre. Depending on the time and title queues to get in have people waiting in line for two hours, even more for some at the front. It is the tedious, often boring task we must face to see films here but it is somethi...

"Sea of Trees" Review: Why It Didn't Deserved To Be Booed

I have never been to a movie before that has been booed by more than a few people. Although, I was not at the press screening, it was reported that much of the audience received Gus Van Sant's new film "Sea of Trees" with much disappointment. The film stars oscar winner Matthew McConaughey as Arthur Brennan, who attempts to commit suicide in Japan's haunting forest.  Throughout the whole film, I thought to myself "why on earth would this get booed so drastically?&q...

Purgatory V Film Exhibition - A Cinematic Exploration of the Soul

purgatory / noun / an intermediate place or state of temporary suffering for expiatory purification

+ NOW ACCEPTING SUBMISSIONS +

Within the word “purgatory”, it is easy to envision condemned souls, torment and darkness. However, purgatory may also reflect the cyclic state in which we often rediscover or recreate ourselves anew from within our personal inflictions. Sometimes it is the necessary stage to exorcise ourselves from the haunting ghosts of the past. Perhaps it is the serene place of self reflection and realization.

From within this, the DAMNED Exhibition of Enlightened Darkness proudly presents an exhibition of powerful cinema called Purgatory – A Cinematic Exploration of the Soul.  Held on March 13th & 14th 2015 at Detroit’s Tangent Gallery, Purgatory will present approximately 90 minutes of short films of introspective, emotive and/or enlightened subject matters from filmmakers worldwide.  This is not an industry-focused film festival, but a tributary showcase of the often redemptive films from the filmmaker’s personal collections.

NOW FEATURING…THE PURGATORY BAZAAR – Come in early before the show and visit the Purgatory Bazaar featuring over a dozen local artists from the DAMNED Exhibition selling their own original art, prints and merchandise.  Help support local artists!

Admission is $10 ($5 matinee Sat at 5pm), which includes a coupon for $5 off any $25+ purchase in the bazaar and free popcorn.  This event is 18+ due to mature film and art content.  A cash bar is also present for alcoholic and non-alcoholic pleasures.
