Just watched the trailer for Matt Wolf’s “Teenage” and it looks like such an interesting and also thought-provoking movie. A mix of rare archival material, filmed portraits and 20th century diary entries it deals with the coming of age in a historical and cultural context.
“Before the ‘Teenager’ was invented, there was no second stage of life. You were either a child or you went to work as an adult. At the turn of the century, child labor was ending, ‘adolescence’ was emerging, and a struggle erupted between adults and youth. Would the young be controlled and regimented, or could they be free?” (Soda Pictures)
Lovely little film about the intricate and meticulous work that goes into hand binding a book.
Artisan work – this little film tells the beautiful story about the making of a Charlotte Olympia shoe. Really well directed by Tabitha Denholm. We want to go to Italy!
FANTASTIC photography for Lars Von Trier’s forthcoming movie Nymph()maniac. Shot by super talented Casper Sejersen. See all the images here.
This lovely documentary “Making Faces” has just been re-released and we want to see it!
“The film captures the personality of the late Canadian graphic artist Jim Rimmer (1931-2010) and follows his hands-on method of creating typefaces from the preliminary sketches through the cutting and casting of a single letter. The design featured in the film would become the basis for the first-ever simultaneous release of a digital font and hand-set metal font.” (via p22.com)
Blue is the warmest colour (La Vie d’Adèle – chapitre 1 & 2) by Abdellatif Kechiche won the Palme d’Or at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. We can’t wait to see it when it premieres as it looks very emotional and uncompromising. One of the main characters is the BEAUTIFUL Lea Seydoux that we adore.
