Elias Demetriou: I had no ambition to leave my country, but in the end it left me”

user
These are not Elias Demetriou’s words. They were said by one of the female characters in the film Fish N’Chips, with which the director participates in the International Competiion of the SIFF. But they are essential for the understanding of the entire film. The subject is very suitable for a comedy, but Demetriou chooses a completely different approach, creting a serious film, which in today’s multicultural situation in Europe poses a very important question: Who we are – t...

A Night at the Opera

user
I go back quite a way with Gaius Caligula....having studied his crazed life and inevitable death when I was  a Classics Scholar at Balliol, and read his first 'biog'in Latin, what more natural  than that ,during  my third excursion to cover Cannes (for BBC radio and other media), I should have been invited by Andre Previn's movie-exec brother to attend the   very secret and first presentation in the world of the full-length, unexpurgated  film version of Caligula.It was an off-Marke...

Addio, Virginia Dignam

user
It was a gloriously sunny day but there was a capacity crowd in the East Chapel in Golders Green Crematorium, in north London, for the Celebration of your life, Virginia Dignam, sometime actress, published poetess, film reviewer on  The Morning Star, and long-serving hard-working Honorary Secretary of the UK Critics' Circle("a shrivel of critics" you used to call us, in your pert and often impertinent way).It would have been your 87th birthday, but you'd left us, after a sudden, sh...

BUFF BLOG (MAY 2012)

user
The much maligned profile of Black British actresses has been well documented on this blog over the past 18 months and most recently in the London Evening Standard with the forthcoming feel-good flick ‘Fast Girls’ and the supposed significance of Leonora Crichlow playing the lead role in a British film. On such matters is primarily where Twitter comes into its own as a live news editor run by the public. It doesn’t take long before feedback is immediate and corrected (many thanks to @ECF...

Postcards from the "B" Festivals

user
A curious coincidence seems to have confined me, so far in unseasonal 2012, to attending international film festivals in cities beginning with a B!  This is not to say that any one of them is a B-Festival (we know, pace F.I.A.P.F., that the world of 613-4,000 festivals is not really divided into 'A' category and 'B' category events) but even though --for the first time-- I missed the Berlinale, for a variety of reasons (though I did manage to preview it on BBC World Service Radio from London,...

ZAPATOS-CHAUSSURES-SHOES

Director: JAVIER ERCILLA & VICTORIA PLAZA.
Little more than seven minutes unfold step by step with a spirit of fantasy, reflection, sensations and empathy... Seven minutes that walk together with the spectators, with their capacity to read in images the feeling of the feet with their experiences, and that wander in the mind of who wears each of the shoes. Walking amongst photographs in black and white, in color and in neon. Moving forward on the path of thinking through images and sound To feel, somehow, that the steps are never lost... Poco más de siete minutos que se dibujan paso a paso con ánimo de fantasía, reflexión, sensación y empatía… Siete minutos que caminan con el espectador, con su capacidad de leer en imágenes el sentir de los pies, con sus vivencias y que deambulan en la mente de quien lleva cada uno de los zapatos. Caminar entre fotografías en blanco y negro, en color y en neón. Avanzar por el camino de la reflexión visual y sonora. Sentir, de alguna manera, que los pasos no son nunca perdidos… Un peu plus de sept minutes qui se dessinent pas à pas, avec un esprit de fantaisie, de réflexion, de sensation et d'empathie... Sept minutes qui marchent avec le spectateur, avec sa capacité de lire en images les sensations des pieds avec ses expériences, et qui déambulent dans l'esprit de celui qui porte chaque soulier. Marcher entre des photographies en noir et blanc, en couleur et en néon. Avancer sur le chemin de la réflexion visuelle et sonore. Sentir, d'une certaine façon, que les pas ne sont jamais perdus...

The BUFF Blog (April 2012)

Traditionally in the UK, the most-watched programmes on television are always scheduled on a Saturday night. The last few years have seen a more aggressive approach to win hearts and minds with the UK’s 2 biggest broadcasters (BBC & ITV) going head-to-head and scheduling their ‘MUST-SEE’ programmes against each other. In the last 6 months alone, Strictly Come Dancing was beating The X Factor when previously the ITV juggernaut was winning hand over fist. On ...
