Interview with Malgoska Szumowska and Joanna Kulig, the director/co-writer and young co-star of “Elles” at Tribeca 2012

user
Fest 21 (Suzanne Lynch) sat down with Malgoska Szumowska and Joanna Kulig, the director/co-writer and young co-star of ELLES, a film in which Juliette Binoche plays a journalist from Elle magazine (and bourgeouis housewife) who becomes too close to her subjects while researching an article on student prostitution in Paris. The film (which hints at voyeurism repeatedly in brief gotcha moments) features a stringy-haired and perpetually stressed-out Anne (as tightly plugged int...

Sex Sells In Toronto

user
  While it is rather foolish to try to find a connecting threat amidst the hundreds of films being showcased this week at the Toronto International Film Festival, one cannot help but notice that films about sex and titillation are pervasive in the schedule and generating strong distributor interest. The first big sale of the Festival was for the drama SHAME by British artist-turned-director Steve McQueen. The film, about a sex addict, features full-frontal nudity and graphic depictions o...

KINBAKU, A REVIEW

Kinbaku- Art of Bondage (Finland, 2009), at 13th TDF, Thessaloniki Film Festival This fascinating short documentary film by director Jouni Hokkanen tells the story of ‘tight binding’, a Japanese form of art through bondage on women who want to be bound. Apparently, tying things up is a sacred quality in the Shinto religion, and this does not exclude the tying up of people as well. Rope artists who express themselves through bondage are considered to have ‘rope fetishes’ usin...

RAINDANCE - ABSTRACT NOTIONS - Shorts Programme

#
ABSTRACT NOTIONS was made up of six shorts (in screening order):   THE OPERA SINGER [2010] dir Nadaav Soudry {2 mins} - This short is a satire of an opera singer giving her best performance whilst selling out. I found it funny and truthful, short and sweet. Soudry has managed to make a statement with a 2 minute short mainly mostly made up of a slow zoom of the title character's face.  FROG IN THE WELL [2010] dir Ken Ochiai {15 mins} - A man who just lost his mother, who ...

Clickin' for Love

Director: Pablo Pappano.
Is the world of online dating full of those who can’t survive in the real dating world? What is the average person’s experience? Do most people find their true love and end up as living, breathing eHarmony commercials, or do most give up in disappointment? After using Craigslist to find people willing to do on-camera interviews about their online dating experiences, I quickly discovered that many people had a lot in common—especially their larger-than-life personalities. Audrey is a forty-something would-be actress who fell in love with a mysterious South African boat captain. Marty is an affable, middle-aged father-of-three and swinger with a “black book” containing thousands of names who hopes to find a wife online. Colleen is a single chef who doesn’t want either a one night stand or a boyfriend. She wants something in between. Thirty-something Andy uses online dating and matchmakers but hasn’t found that special someone. Although he did find a woman who, on their first date, offered him $100,000 to father her child. After recording all of these insightful - and sometimes crazy - stories about the world of online dating, I knew I had a fantastic and original movie to make. Internet dating has been around for more than a decade, but it still isn't clear whether online dating really works. Is “happily ever after” a realistic goal for online daters? Find out by watching Clickin' for Love.

SILVERDOCS Film In Focus: MAKING THE BOYS

user
  Sometimes, it takes time passing for true worth to be revealed. Such is clearly the case with the controversial 1960s play THE BOYS IN THE BAND, which was the first drama to feature openly gay men in their natural habitat of downtown Manhattan. The play, by fledgling writer Mart Crowley, was a cultural watershed in 1968 when it opened in a tiny theater in New York’s West Village. It became not only a hit (running five years) but the first openly gay theatrical show (with openly gay w...

Women in Film

user
Women in the Arts and their involvement in film, live theatre and television appears to be exacerbated with sex and sexual content. This used to make me a bit furious because it appeared men do not have to go to such extremes to sell, get access or the like. In the wake of American media and marketing, it appears that it is about even but not for the same reasons. Women appear to get sexual to get into the industry or to have better access in the industry, where as men perform sexual jesters, m...

European Views At New York Gay Film Festival

user
New York audiences interested in a uniquely gay European point of view have several films to sample at the NewFest, New York's key gay and lesbian film festival event. The Festival obviously values this European perspective, having chosen a UK film as its Opening Night attraction. MR. RIGHT, written and directed by Jacqui Morris, was an audience pleaser as it unfolded its interlocking stories of a group of gay men and their "fag hag" compatriot in the gay-centric Soho neighborhood of London.

Antisex

Director: Larisa Isaeva.
Questions of sex and physical copulation always excited mankind. In all centuries! In 20-th century the mankind has gone through so-called sexual revolution - free love, free feelings, free sex. Now, in 21 century, people were satiated with sex, a sensuality, a pornography and have thought up a new way of the protest: against sex in general! There was a new movement - movement of the asexuals! Sex destroys the person, speaks asexuals. Physical copulation stirs to spiritual development of the person, they approve. Whether they are right? Musical comedy ANTISEX is the movie about it!. The statistics approves, that each 100-th inhabitant of the Earth - asexual! Also it is very serious problem of that time in which we live! But... The Mankind being dared will leave the complexes and lacks! We have tried to consider very serious problem of our epoch through a comedy. This is the not boring story about sexual disfunction, not the cool erotic movie. This is the funniest fairy tale about love! The love story between ordinary man and not so ordinary woman… She’s not sexless – she’s just asexual. It is ASEXUALITY! It’s just a movement! And you probably heard about it before! But! Never like that! The concept is: sex could destroy your individuality! But the man-hero will find the way how to fight for his love! And of course: Love always wins! Lot’s of music, dances, sudden turning-points…
