Remembering Kieslowski

You make films to give people something, to transport them somewhere else, and it doesn’t matter if you transport them to a world of intuition or a world of intellect.”¬†¬†Krzysztof Kie?lowski

Only Mid GenXers Know For Certain

Mid Gen Xers – people born in the late 60s and early 70s – are a quiet bunch. They don’t talk about their childhood much. Every stage of their personal evolution isn’t followed closely by journalists and bloggers. They remain the perennial latch key kids. Their pop culture history – their fashion history – is mostly buried in private photo albums in the darkest corners of their parents’ homes. It’s fun to see that era shown on the screen but is the depiction accurate?

Sweet Dreams Mommy

In his short film about a day in the lives of mothers, film maker Matt Bieler captures similar moments. In one scene a child compares a mother to angels. The film is a sweet reminder of the care and consideration provided by mothers and mothering women such as devoted aunties or aunts by adoption.
