From Palestine to Africa

user
Day 4 and it had two distinct themes - the Palestinian/Israeli issue and Africa in all its glory. Things sometime happen to me that seem too coincidental. I was traveling by Peoplemover to see two films about Palestine and then suddenly noticed the Durban Holocaust Centre. I've been trying to find it for years and then it just pops up. Maybe it was a sign... 5 Broken Cameras is an intensely personal documentary made by a resident of Bil'in called Emad Burnat , who started filming his life, t...

LOOKING BACK, Cinema's greatest moments... OUT OF AFRICA (1985)

user
  As another Oscar season has passed us by and three-time Academy Award winner Meryl Streep has won yet another Academy Award for Best Actress, I think it's time to mention one of my favorite films of all time, one I must admit I watch once a month- OUT OF AFRICA (1985). Why people so often refer to it as a ‘chick flick’ is beyond me when it is a Sydney Pollack film and one of Hollywood’s greatest canonic triumphs. Universal’s “Out of Africa”, which won the Oscar for B...

Animation from Egypt & Africa

user
The History of African Animation By Mohamed Ghazala African animation started about 70 years ago in Egypt and was founded by the Frenkel brothers. It’s interesting to note that the first pioneers of animation in Africa were not professional artists or animators; they were just a group of Jewish carpenters who immigrated to Egypt from Russia in search of freedom and work. They achieved the unexpected; the first African animated cartoon was created. Despite problems...
