IDFA Part 2, Mrs. Carey's Concert

This movie was part of the “PLAY” mini-festival that was the musical part of IDFA this year. All of the selections dealt with music in some way and I was surprised that there were so few people at this, the opening movie of the festival, but perhaps 12.45 on a Saturday wasn’t a popular slot. 431 more words

IDFA #9: National Gallery 6/10

Almost the same film as last week “The Great Museum.” Fly on the wall, no outside commentary, boring meetings to show internal organizational dramas. But this was much better because there were also scenes of docents lecturing on paintings. 27 more words

IDFA, Red Forest Hotel

Interestingly, the two movies I liked the least this year were the two environmental ones. Odd; I usually love exposes, but somehow both of these left me a bit cold. 308 more words

IDFA 2016, Singing with Angry Bird

Completely charming and heartwarming. ‘Angry Bird’ is a Korean tenor, obviously of operatic background, who somehow fell into the NGO world and is teaching choir to slum kids in Pune, India. 241 more words
