New Haven Underground Film Festival

user
The New Haven Underground Film Festival Selection Committee has determined “round one” (of two) of its 2007 lineup. “We’ve been doing this long enough to see that things come in waves and, this year, of the hundreds of entries we received, the documentary standouts were about great Rock ‘n’ Roll and Hip Hop acts.

The Many Colors of Black Music

Hip Hop Artist Kazi Performs Saturday, October 21---As the Turks and Caicos International Film Festival, an event devoted to the relationship between film and music, moves into its final stanza, one of the relevatory aspects of the event has been the remarkably vibrant rainbow of contemporary black music. While rap, hip hop and rhythm and blues (or a mix of all of the above) is clearly the dominant trend, black artists continue to expand the form of jazz, reggae, singer-songwriter and rock musi...

Opening Night part 1

#
At 6:30pm, I found myself trekking through the pleasantly desolate industrial fringes of SOHO in search of Don Hill’s. The graffiti scribbled, black brick exterior of the bar combined with the dark, skull embossed fashion of a few nicotine huffing early arrivals to inspire visions of death metal to dance in my head. But the interior of the bar was more campy than tough or spooky, with “sailor tattoo” themed wallpaper and glowing gargoyle masks on the wall creating an ambience somewhere b...

Film In Profile: Iron Island

Saturday, September 16---For several decades, the American government has successfully demonized the country of Iran, referring to it as an "evil empire" as a member of the "axis of evil". The rhetoric has ratcheted up in recent months, as Iran attempts to take hold of its own destiny by producing nuclear power, and possibly nuclear weapons. But what do we really know about this ancient culture that is one of the most influential nations in the Middle East? What more can we know without trave...

Faith And Film: SILVERDOCS Finds Religion

user
Thursday, June 15----One of the tenets of the American system of governing is a strict separation of church and state. It is very clearly written into our Constitution, and was certainly the intention of our "founding fathers", who had experienced the persecutions of state religions in Europe. This seperation between church doctrine and the rule of law has been scrupulously followed but that wall is definitely crumbling. A number of documentaries premiering at the SILVERDOCS festival this week,...

Women in Horror: Why? A woman's testimonial

user
Pretty/Scary. The duality of the phrase is simple. Women can be pretty. They can also be scary. Women can be pretty scary. In a world where most geeks are men, it’s hard for women to find one another among all the testosterone-ridden conventions, film screenings, comic book stores, and underground video collections. It’s also difficult to find a way for women to accept their beauty, sex appeal, and femininity while acknowledging that they are smart, talented, and intelligent as well. When yo...
