YOURS IN SISTERHOOD
Women today read letters from Ms Magazine from the 1970's
Very good time capsule revealing how far we've come and how far we have to go. This is going to pla best for people who know what Ms was and stood for. I love bits of this such as the woman who reads the letter sent in from her 16 year old self. While I like the film a great deal I think it's a bit long at 100 minutes or so thanks to pretty much every reader being bookended by silence. uibble aside definitely worth a look.
Kafia, a young woman from Somalia tries to find the balance between life in her new home in Hungary and he Somali Background. If you've ever wondered what its like to leave everything you know for a better life somewhere else this film will give you an idea. While Kafia would seem to have an easier time than most, her struggle to balance this new world and it's new opportunities make this a compelling film. Also helping is the fact Kafia is a charming young lady you can't help but like. Worth a look.
Ethan Rice is a young man with cystic fibrosis. A filmmaker and musician we watch as he navigates his final days. A film of mixed emotions will leave you both sad at what it shows and happy at having met Ethan, a wickedly funny young man with a one of a kind outlook on dying- its not death tat scares him its the road there. I really like the film but it made me sad, and as such I will not write alot on the film because I don't want to be in that headspace.
Various 17 year olds talk to each other about their lives.
I have no idea what I think of this film. While billed as a documentary the film feels more like a work of fiction, perhaps docufiction as things see to be set up and not natural occurrences. The sense of unreality crashes into the reality for an uneasy partnership.
