The Flavor of The Salt

Director: HyeMi.Han.
During the Japanese colonial period, Moon-Junkyung was raised in a rich family, she married to the younger son of a noble family in the town. However, after the wedding, she was deserted by her husband on the first night. Her husband often slept outside the household. We can count the nights he stayed at home on ten fingers. She found out that he was cheating on her and Moon Junkyung was shocked, but because of the patriarchal society, the people behaved as if eyes cannot see, ears cannot hear and mouths cannot speak. She waited for her husband in silence. But the concubine delivered her husband’s children. Moon-Junkyung was alienated by the family. She was excluded from the world and tried to throw herself into the deep sea. But even death was not allowed to her easily.

Book

Director: Elton Baxhaku.
This is a film about the book. The art and the craft of making the object which has always been and is part of our life. Starting as a sheet of paper, it gets all the violence of the machinery, like press power, foldings, cuttings and bindings, in order to be finalized as unity which encloses words. This unity is called “book”. But, what really makes the book a book? The “voice” of Stéphane Mallarmé narrates some of the answers of this question.

Paperboy

Lee Daniels' Paperboy visceral and well crafted, by Moira Sullivan

user
                          Near the end of the Cannes film Festival comes a film that just blows it all in a new direction, clearly the most visceral, and a well crafted film at that. Every shot is loaded with punch and some of the montage sequences recall the principles of Eisenstein for the creation of pathos. Paperboy is a gritty narrative, shockin...

Paper Boy by (Precious) Lee Daniels deals with social injustice

user
For his third full-length movie, the director of the critically-acclaimed Precious (2008) has taken his inspiration from a psychological thriller written by journalist Pete Dexter. The Paperboy is above all a reflection on human behaviour. Before US director Lee Daniels finally brought it to the screen, the script of The Paperboy sat for a long time on Pedro Almodóvar’s bedside table. After the Spanish film-maker dropped the project, Lee Daniels picked it up and set out ...

Shady Lady

Director: Tristan Loraine.
This is the epic story of a B-24 'Liberator' bomber aircraft called 'Shady Lady', that took off from Darwin, Australia, on Friday, 13th August 1943, on what was at that time, the world's longest ever attempted bombing mission. Under the command of 'Doug' Craig, 'Shady Lady' set off with 10 other aircraft to attack the oil refineries at Balikpapan, Borneo. With the target hundreds of miles behind enemy lines, this was an audacious attempt to strike back at the Imperial Japanese Army. 'Shady Lady' survived intense tropical thunderstorms, serious turbulence, heavy enemy antiaircraft fire and was chased by Japanese Zero fighters - but never made it back to base. 'Shady Lady,' after 16 hours and 35 minutes in the air, ran out of fuel and was crash-landed in a salt-pan, in the remotest part of Northern Australia. Local support from the Aborigines and a massive rescue mission amazingly saw 'Shady Lady' - fly again.
