The MIFF 2012 Diary Part 2

Side By Side. I have not enough words. Or maybe I do. I was gonna do a backtrack post for 7 Days in Havana and Ernest & Celestine but this… this was too amazing not to blog about first. Walking into Kino Cinema, I expected a much larger venue because of the topic of this … Continue reading

RIP Senna

I had the privilege of watching Senna today, courtesy of RMIT’s awesome free lunchtime movie screenings.  I would have to say, it did rekindle my love for documentaries.

Anyways, I just wanna blog now, while everything’s still kinda fresh-ish, and attempt to develop a good habit of regularly blogging. So HALLELUJAH, with fast fingers and enough adrenaline, I managed to get all the lectures & tutes for my 3 main courses/modules squished into … Continue reading

Mood making magic

I love how sound plays such a integral part of film. For our True Lies screening this week, we watched So Close, directed by Abbas Kiarostami. (K I won’t go into detail of explaining what the film was about.) In tute, we talked about in the second last scene of the film, when Hossein Sabzian, the … Continue reading
