Anapela Polataivao in Night Shift (2012, dir. Zia Mandviwalla)

Salote, an airport cleaner starts another long night shift. She keeps her head down, does her job and gleans her survival from what others leave behind. No one would usually spare her a second glance. [x]

A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night

The first Iranian Vampire Western ever made, Ana Lily Amirpour’s debut basks in the sheer pleasure of pulp. A joyful mash-up of genre, archetype, and iconography, its prolific influences span spaghetti westerns, graphic novels, horror films, and the Iranian New Wave.

It’s truly unfortunate that once again, with another year of remarkable international cinema, the Academy seeks to celebrate the same white european countries and Argentina, the only south american country that they ever recognise and there just leaves Mauritania the lone ‘outsider’ to help defend the nominations list as not being racist and xenophobic. 

For my pick of the best international films of 2014 not nominated that you should definitely check out, we suggest:

  • The Attorney (South Korea)
  • Today (Iran)
  • Cantinflas (Mexico)
  • Eyes of a Thief (Palestine)
  • Teacher’s Diary (Thailand)

Spike Lee on the critical reaction to Do the Right Thing (via kmmbig)
It disturbed me how some critics would talk about the loss of property — which is really saying white-owned property — but not the loss of life. Do the Right Thing was a litmus test. If in a review, a critic discussed how Sal’s Famous was burned down but didn’t mention anything about Radio Raheem getting killed, it seemed obvious that he or she valued white-owned property more than the life of this young black hoodlum. To me, loss of life outweighs loss of property. You can rebuild a building. I mean, they’re rebuilding New Orleans now but the people that died there are never coming back.

dynamicafrica:

Filmmaker Steve McQueen returns to his fine art beginnings with an exhibition and his first new film since “12 Years A Slave”.

Made using reworked Super-8 footage of a young boy in Grenada shot by Dutch cinematographer Robby Miller. The previously unused footage was made during a trip McQueen made to Grenada in 2001. There, McQueen came across the young man we briefly come to know in the film Ashes, the name the of film’s protagonist.

Recognizing a quality in him that translated beautifully onto the screen, McQueen had wanted to cast Ashes in the project he was working on there but was unable to do so. Instead, he asked Miller to take footage of the young man.When McQueen returned to the island in 2009, he learned of Ashes’ murder. Shaken by this, McQueen’s latest short film and exhibition are an intimate ode to the effervescence of youth and the tragic death of a young man that embodied this vivacity so well.

Steve McQueen: Ashes is currently on view at the Thomas Dane Gallery, London until 15th November.

You haven't updated in a little while, everything ok?

I’m still alive. I’ve been really busy with uni and haven’t had time to sit down and watch films and recommend them. I’ll be posting articles and stuff about int. cinema soon though. Take care
