Every end of the year, I find it hard to calculate how many great films I might have missed. I usually start with a research and list them so that i can watch during the holidays. I’m surprised how most of the interesting films are not shown in the box office. Here are some films I’d love to recommend from the list.

1. Mustang (IMDB:http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3966404/)

It’s about girls, about politics, and about freedom. Wherever there is oppression, there is resistance.

2. Youth (IMDB:http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3312830/)

The shots are very beautiful, the soundtrack are stunning. Sometimes film like this gives a better meaning of “cinema”

3. The Stanford Prison Experiment(IMDB:http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0420293/)

This is a very disturbing film but also makes you think. Human behaviour is always a fascinating subject to explore.

4. The Salt of the Earth (IMDB:http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3674140/)

Wim Wenders? Photography? Good enough reason for me to watch this film, more than once.

5. Kingsman: The Secret Service (IMDB:http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2802144/)

Too many serious films? This one will keep you entertained.

“30sec film artists” is about to launch!

“30sec film artists” is a new project I started to work on recently  about video portrait of creative artists in Toronto. Are you ready to be amazed and inspired?

We are planning to post one video a week starting from next Wednesday!
This is not about any successful tips, it is purely about the fun moment of being a creative individual. Nobody can teach you or tell you what to do, but we hope  as you watch these people living their life as they creating, you will want to create a beautiful life of your own.

Now let me introduce the first three artists that I’ve filmed so far:

  1. Roadsworth

  2. Roadsworth began painting the streets of Montreal in the fall of 2001. Initially motivated by a desire for more bike paths in the city and a questioning of “car culture” in general, he continued to develop a language around street markings and other elements of the urban landscape using a primarily stencil based technique. In the fall of 2004, Roadsworth was arrested for his nocturnal activities and charged with 53 counts of mischief. Despite the threat of heavy fines and a criminal record he received a relatively lenient sentence which he attributes in part to the public support he received subsequent to his arrest. Since that time, Roadsworth has received various commissions for his work and continues to be active in both visual art and music.

  3. Bob Wiseman

  4. Robert Neil “Bob” Wiseman is a film score composer, filmmaker, political themed singer-songwriter, and actor. Wiseman discovered or produced many artists including Canadian member of parliament Andrew Cash, Ron Sexsmith, The Lowest of the Low, and Bruce McCulloch of Kids in the Hall. He is a founding member of Blue Rodeo with whom he won 5 Juno Awards.

  5. Yael Brotman

  6. Yael
    Launch on 9/23 2015.

    Yael Brotman teaches in the Studio program at the University of Toronto Scarborough. She is also a practicing artist. Her practice includes drawing, painting and printmaking. Brotman has exhibited in public and commercial galleries as well as at artist-run centres across Canada, from St. John’s NF to Dawson City YK. Her work has been reviewed in newspapers (the Globe and Mail, the National Post), magazines (Visual Arts News, Now magazine), and blogs (the torontoist.com site – an image of her print installation was featured May 2009, and viewoncanadianart.com – which highlighted a shot of her drawing installation in the ‘Art School: Dismissed’ exhibition, May 2010).

New upcoming movies – more to expect in 2015(part1)

New upcoming movies – more to expect in 2015(part1)

There are many new great films to expect the second half of 2015.Let’s take a look and add on your “want to watch” film list!

1. Carol- 2015(cannes)
Rooney Mara and kate Blanchett, just to hear this two names already made me feel excited about this film. Set in 1950s New York, a department-store clerk who dreams of a better life falls for an older, married woman.
Rooney Mara won the best actress at Cannes Film Festivals for this work, what more can I say?

2.Black Mass- 2015 september
I assume everybody is expecting Johnny Depp to appear back in form. And this film must be the one to check out!

3. The Program- 2015 September
Have you ever watched Transporting(1996) and The Beach(2000)? As a big fun of these two films, i am convinced to watch The Program since the script is written by Josh Hodge!

4. The Walk -2015 October
If you are not a big fun of documentary and you missed The Man On Wire, The Walk will be a another chance to experience this breathtaking true story.

5.Room – 2015 October
I’ve read this book last year and can’t stop imaging all the scenes that played in my head. I hope I can love the film as much as the book.

There are still so many more to find out and if you have any films that you are expecting to watch please share with us.
