Tribeca dispatch #9

7 May 2006 | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

- [Pierre-Alexandre Despatis suffers for his cinema. Now covering his second edition, our official festival reporter and multi-function human cyborg will provide us the sights (plenty of cool pics!), the sounds, the reviews and the occasional interviews of the still very young 5th edition of the Tribeca film festival. Below are some of Pierre-Alexandre’s reviews in easy to read, insightful capsule form. Enjoy!] Mist In The Palm TREETribeca's selection of experimental films has been a wealthy bunch this year. This anti-film by Carlos Molinero and Lola Salvador relates the biographical flashes of Santiago Bergson and focus on a few events that that marked his life. As his daughter notes, "It's as if he never existed"-- no one remembers him!

Below are some of Pierre-Alexandre’s reviews in easy to read, insightful capsule form. Enjoy!] The Case Of The Grinning CATThe tone of the film is set precisely with the film’s first sequence. It's actual footage of a group of random people who received an e-mail asking them to go to a park and all open their umbrellas in unison! Such urban graphic artists who 'enhance' cities with their art are also the ones responsible for the most famous icons is the “Obey” graffiti’s found just about all over the place. In France (and in NY for the duration of the festival--see the pictures), a grinning cat started to appear on many buildings. As the narrator says, "at night someone was risking his life to put a smile over the city". In the film, the pro-peace cat is used as an excuse to look at French and international politics over the past few years. It's very entertaining ... like when you read a Garfield cartoon, »
