  • Feature Film: The Pervert's Guide to Ideology
    how to solve this problem Simple You need to generate an ideological narrative which explains how things went wrong in a society not as the result of the inherent tensions in the development of this society but as the result of a foreign intruder Things were okay till Jews penetrated our social body In the midst of small humorous moments in which for example Žižek complains that Coke when it is no longer cold is basically shit Žižek additionally manages to provide insights that are profoundly nihilistic This is particularly so with his commentary on David Lean s Brief Encounter 1945 in which Celia Johnson plays a bored suburban housewife who has an affair Celia Johnson s character fantasises about confessing the affair but cannot do so to either her husband or to a gossiping acquaintance who cannot be trusted in this way Celia Johnson s experiences cannot be confirmed let alone exonerated through her confession As Žižek argues with reference to the Lacanian big Other this was analogously the position of women who were raped in the post Yugoslav war in Bosnia in the early 90s and is analogous to Primo Levi s nightmare as described in his book The Drowned and the Saved that no one would believe the horrors of Auschwitz once they were recounted As Žižek asserts these women survived through the conviction that they had to stay alive in order to tell the world the truth but consequently discovered that There is no one really to listen to them Either some totally ignorant bored social worker or some relative who usually made obscene insinuations Are you sure you weren t enjoying even a little bit the rape They discover the truth of what Jacques Lacan claimed there is no big Other We are alone Ultimately Žižek once again does not disappoint with this cinematic offering his commentaries and insights inspire the viewer to regard the world in a different and more discerning way and finally to pay attention to the ideological narratives that constitute us as subjects and structure our everyday lives and which as Žižek has repeatedly reminded us we essentially cannot escape About Linda Roland Danil Linda Roland Danil is a Doctoral candidate teaching assistant and researcher based at the School of Sociology and Social Policy at the University of Leeds Her academic work can be found here http leeds academia edu LindaRolandDanil Mail More Posts 5 Comments comments Prev Finding Love in the City of Film Next LFF As I Lay Dying Related Posts The Voices In Your Head The Authorial Impulse Writ Large Drama Matters How Do You Revive A Devised Play Drama Matters The Fault In Our Stars Litro TV Recent Posts Bringing Up Baby In the Night Time Before the Sun Rises at the Gate Theatre True Love in Los Angeles A R BY ANY OTHER NAME The Echo Travelling in Fiji The Litro Blog View Archive 11th February 2016 Litro 149 The Love issue Letter from the Editor

    is for Duff s character in the 1960s that the resistance for change was equally apparent in black people as it was for white America The moderate approach to racism by black people personified in Reverend Dawson Josie s father was an indication of the fear at the time and how firmly fixed power was in white men s hands Duff s radical attitude ostracises him from the town No white employer will hire him because of the reputation of trouble that he has acquired and few black men will befriend him in fear of the association Duff comments that it s just like a lynching they don t use a knife on you but they got other ways Nothing But a Man is a marvelous and realistic depiction of the lives of black men and women at a time when their inferiority was only beginning to be seriously questioned The film has been said to be Malcolm X s favourite film which is especially remarkable as the film was made by two Jewish filmmakers Michael Roemer and Robert M Young For all of his misbehavior Duff s principles and his steadfast respect between people of all races shines through in this film and his retort to Josie s father when his attitude his questioned particularly resonates You been stoopin for so long you don t know how to stand up What a message this might have been to the sixties civil rights movement in the UK Nevertheless it s as unmissable now as it would ve been then About Christo Hall Christo is Film and Media Editor at Litro Online co editor of culture and politics magazine The New Wolf and freelance journalist He recently co edited New Cartography the winning brief for arts charity IdeasTap s Anthology magazine Mail Web More Posts 5 Comments comments Prev Interview Africa in Motion Festival Next New Writing Where The Shot Rabbits Lay at the White Bear Theatre Related Posts Part 4 My Interactive Comedy Extravaganzas for the Edinburgh Festival Searching for Watt Barry McGovern in Watt at the Barbican Journals Wild memory Litro TV Recent Posts Bringing Up Baby In the Night Time Before the Sun Rises at the Gate Theatre True Love in Los Angeles A R BY ANY OTHER NAME The Echo Travelling in Fiji The Litro Blog View Archive 11th February 2016 Litro 149 The Love issue Letter from the Editor By Eric Akoto Love we spend our lives craving it in one form or another searching for it and talking about it Its meaning is felt more than it is clearly expressed Some call it the greatest virtue Continue reading 9th December 2015 Litro 148 The Going Home issue Letter from the Editor By Eric Akoto This month in Litro 148 we explore the notion of what Going Home means to us Is it a familiar physical space A refuge A feeling A state of mind Or is home actually to be found in another human being

  • Interview: Africa in Motion Festival
    like La Pirogue which is quite a tragic film in many ways and is dedicated to the 5 000 Africans who have mostly drowned trying to cross to Europe in the last five or so years But then on the other hand another reality of Africans leaving Africa is that some leave to live in America become very successful and are pioneers in their own way For us those different sides of the story are important and trying to avoid stereotypes of course and the festival is primarily about countering those incorrect representations you find of Africa and those created by outsiders and trying to show more I don t want to use the word authentic but Justine It s Africa told by African people rather than just outsiders Lizelle Yes those stories are of course joyful and happy stories sometimes sometimes they tell challenging and complex stories and I guess we are just trying to show all those different realities Although I have to say I am quite cautious because when you are working with Africa it is quite easy to go into the whole war famine corruption but on the other side you find it completely avoided and it is also part of contemporary Africa so it s just striking a fine balance between that I think we do have some responsibility in what representations of Africa the festival portrays Do you think African directors make their films for Africans or are they primarily looking outwards to the world Lizelle I think that depends on industry and country by country because you are talking about a vast continent where certainly West African Francophone filmmakers like Sembène have historically and even now been courted by the European film festivals and Mahamat Saleh Haroun a director from Chad his film Grigis is showing at the festival has been very celebrated at Cannes Some filmmakers have been criticised for making films that portray Africa in the way that Europeans expect to see Africa there s the whole strand of pre Colonial films who make these village films that have also been called Calabash films because they are set in villages in a pre colonial romanticised Africa before colonisation and any foreign intervention Those films have also been criticised because they play to a certain idea of what Westerners looks like or should look like You then have local filmmakers who couldn t care less what the outside world thinks such as the Bongowood industry in Tanzania which makes films in Swahili That mindset is completely for local markets as they can t travel they re not internationally accessible because they are so specific to their local context so it really depends I think also perhaps another problem in the South African context is that there might sometimes be a mismatch between popular mass appeal and the work of arthouse directors and auteurs and I think that is what happens in South Africa because some of the really great directors such as

  • Feature Film: Diana
    expect from the director of the magnificent Downfall the story of the final days of Adolf Hitler The scenes of Diana visiting Angola and Bosnia are very well handled He has a good track record in conceptual films loaded with the threat of violence Das Experiment Five Minutes of Heaven and also in portraits of iconic figures reviewing their unfulfilled dreams Mein Letzter Film Downfall but was he right for a piece treading the difficult line between doomed romance and a portrait of the British nation s darling Where she recreates the famous television interview Naomi Watts nails the character extremely well but disturbingly throughout the rest of the film her appearance is somewhat different and her performance seems a mere impersonation The film represents a missed opportunity How interesting it would have been for instance to properly examine the psychological damage that was done to a naive young girl by a cold hypocritical and uncomprehending royal family and by the opportunistic and cynical media feeding a scandal thirsty public Did the outpouring of grief after the princess s untimely death disguise at least a portion of public guilt And how interesting it would have been to examine how that naive young girl transformed herself partly through her own love affairs into a confident and beautiful woman who nonetheless still suffered from chronic insecurity and low self esteem About Graham Buchan Writer and film maker Published two books and a pamphlet of poetry the tall lighthouse with individual poems in two national newspapers nine anthologies and many magazines Performed poetry in London southern England New York and Austin with appearances on BBC Resonance FM WBAI New York Published several short stories Litro The London Magazine amongst others travel writing poetry appreciation and dozens of art and film reviews Film making almost entirely factual news documentaries medical and programmes for government departments public service authorities and industry Mail More Posts 3 Comments comments Prev The Rude Awakening of a Sleeping Giant New Plays From Chile at the Royal Court Theatre Next Interview Africa in Motion Festival Related Posts The White Revolution Sacred Cows in India A Tale of the Dispossessed and Disinherited Dennis Kelly s Debris at the Southwark Playhouse Thank You Very Much Indeed Why The Oscars Don t Matter Litro TV Recent Posts Bringing Up Baby In the Night Time Before the Sun Rises at the Gate Theatre True Love in Los Angeles A R BY ANY OTHER NAME The Echo Travelling in Fiji The Litro Blog View Archive 11th February 2016 Litro 149 The Love issue Letter from the Editor By Eric Akoto Love we spend our lives craving it in one form or another searching for it and talking about it Its meaning is felt more than it is clearly expressed Some call it the greatest virtue Continue reading 9th December 2015 Litro 148 The Going Home issue Letter from the Editor By Eric Akoto This month in Litro 148 we explore the notion of what Going

  • Feature Film: Borrowed Time
    every problem then you end up with something generic In the end the most creative decisions come from some sort of deprivation However shooting the movie was only the first hurdle In an era of blockbuster laden cinema screens with star names almost guaranteed to fill seats or so the producers hope distribution turned out to be a problem When Bishop and producer Oliver Kaempfer first approached Microwave in 2009 micro budget films were a fresh concept but by the time the film was completed in 2012 the market was full of such films all of them competing with big budget movies for limited screen slots and distributors reluctant to take a risk on a small film with no household names The production team turned to crowdfunding platform Kickstarter to raise the distribution budget Offering a range of incentives everything from a Thank you message on the film s Facebook page signed copies of the script to drinks with the director and cast the team successfully raised the money in February 2013 This not only enabled them to cover the logistics of distribution but also showed there was a demand for this small quirky British movie which no doubt helped to persuade cinemas to take the film It was a risk as crowdfunding is by no means a sure thing On Kickstarter if a project doesn t reach its target everyone gets their money back If it works though a project not only gets funding it also gets a built in marketing push as everyone who has donated their hard earned cash is guaranteed to spread the word If the film turns out to be bad this approach could backfire horribly In the case of Borrowed Time the film s many backers can rest assured that their money was well spent It s a gem of a movie and deserves to be seen About Paris Franz Paris Franz is a freelance writer based in London Her short stories and articles have been published in the United Kingdom Ireland and China She studied history and archaeology at the University of London and the arts of Asia at the Victoria and Albert Museum which greatly influenced her love of history travel and story telling She is the author of the travel collection Treading Lightly Mail Web More Posts 4 Comments comments Prev Pushed to the Limit A Comparison Between Simon Stephens s Punk Rock and His Adaptation of A Doll s House Next The Rude Awakening of a Sleeping Giant New Plays From Chile at the Royal Court Theatre Related Posts Feature Film Under the Skin VAULT Festival 2015 Love to Love to Love You Observations on Manchester Square W1 Litro TV Recent Posts Bringing Up Baby In the Night Time Before the Sun Rises at the Gate Theatre True Love in Los Angeles A R BY ANY OTHER NAME The Echo Travelling in Fiji The Litro Blog View Archive 11th February 2016 Litro 149 The Love issue Letter from the Editor
