Festival: Folk Music at Newport, 1963-1966

29 August 2017 9:53 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

We thought all the great vintage music documentaries were accounted for, but Murray Lerner’s look at the Newport Folk Festival in the mid-‘sixties is a terrific time machine to a kindler, gentler musical era. The mix of talent is broad and deep, and we get to see excellent vintage coverage of some real legends, before the hype & marketing plague arrived.

‘Certain Women,’ ‘The Piano Teacher,’ and More Join The Criterion Collection in September

16 June 2017 4:27 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

While the vast majority of our favorite films of last year have been treated with Blu-ray releases, one title near the top of the list we’ve been waiting the longest for is Kelly Reichardt‘s Certain Women. It looks like it’s been worth the wait as The Criterion Collection have unveiled their September releases and it’s leading the pack (with special features also an interview with the director and Todd Haynes!).

Also getting a release in September, is Michael Haneke‘s Isabelle Huppert-led The Piano Teacher and the recent documentary David Lynch: The Art Life (arriving perfectly-timed to the end of the new Twin Peaks). There’s also Alfred Hitchcock‘s classic psychodrama Rebecca and the concert film Festival, featuring Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Johnny Cash, and many more.

Check out the high-resolution cover art and full details on the releases below, with more on Criterion’s site. »

Lillian E. Benson to Be Honored by Motion Picture Editors Guild

21 March 2017 11:02 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Lillian E. Benson: Courtesy of Motion Picture Editors Guild

This is the kind of herstory we love learning about: Lillian E. Benson was the first African-American female member of the American Cinema Editors (Ace), a prestigious honorary society of film editors. Now the trailblazer is set to be honored by The Motion Picture Editors Guild (Local 700 Iatse) with its Fellowship and Service Award, The Hollywood Reporter writes.

Benson, an adjunct professor at USC, launched her career in New York. She received an Emmy nomination in 1991 for “Eyes on the Prize II,” Jacqueline Shearer’s PBS docuseries about the Civil Rights Movement. A year later, she was welcomed into American Cinema Editors.

“She is currently editing NBC’s ‘Chicago Med’ and in 2016 worked on the Oprah Winfrey/Craig Wright drama ‘Greenleaf,’” THR reports. Benson also served on the editorial team of Rita Coburn Whack and Bob Hercules’ 2016 doc “Maya Angelou: And Still I Rise,” a portrait of the late American poet and civil rights activist.

Benson has also stepped behind the camera as a director. She helmed an episode of the PBS children’s series “The Big Blue Marble,” and the 2004 documentary short about firefighters of color who died at the World Trade Center, “All Our Sons: Fallen Heroes of 9/11.” Benson recently completed her second doc, this one about a choral arranger, “Amen: The Life and Music of Jester Hairston.”

Lillian E. Benson has a had a long career editing influential and socially conscious films, and has been long active in working to increase minority participation in the filmmaking process,” said Mpeg president and Academy Award-winner Alan Heim. “In addition, she has been an active member of the board of directors for the American Cinema Editors as secretary and co-chair of the diversity committee.”

Benson will accept her honor during a dinner April 8 in Los Angeles. The Mpeg award will be presented to her by director and producer Zeinabu Irene Davis, a friend and collaborator of Benson’s.

This year marked the first time that an African-American woman received an Oscar nomination for editing. Joi McMillon was recognized for her work on “Moonlight.”

Check out a video of Benson discussing her craft and career below.
