‘Stefan Zweig: Farewell to Europe’

‘Stefan Zweig: Farewell to Europe’
Opening in L.A. and other cities June 16, “Stefan Zweig: Farewell to Europe” is a stylishly accomplished and intellectually well thought out character study of a man who was the most popular author in the world in the 1920s and 1930s and who, today, is nearly forgotten. Told through six windows of 20 minutes each, this unique storytelling technique gives the film an immediacy as each part of Stefan Zweig’s life plays out in real time.

Stefan Zweig’s books have been made into 23 movies around the world, including his novel, Letter from an Unknown Woman, which was adapted to the screen in 1948 by Max Ophüls and starred Joan Fontaine and Louis Jourdain. His writings have also inspired Wes Anderson’s “Grand Budapest Hotel”.

Having just read his memoir, The World of Yesterday and having been on my own private search for what it means to have to leave your

Human Rights Watch Ff 2017 Women Directors: Meet Cristina Herrera Borquez— “No Dress Code Required”

“No Dress Code Required”

Cristina Herrera Borquez is a Mexican film director whose first documentary short film “The Minutemen Project” (2006) received recognition for Outstanding Artistic Endeavo” at the 6th International Hispanic Film Festival. In 2013, she opened La Cleta Films and began production on “No Dress Code Required,” her first feature-length doc. She received the John Schlesinger Award at the 2017 Palms Springs Film Festival for best first documentary.

“No Dress Code Required” will premiere at the 2017 Human Rights Watch Film Festival on June 13.

W&H: Describe the film for us in your own words.

Chb: The documentary follows the story of a gay couple, Victor and Fernando, as they journey through the legal process of trying to be the first same-sex couple to get married in the state of Baja California, Mexico, where same-sex marriage is illegal.

It is also a personal love story of two people who want the viewers to recognize their right to live their love publicly.

W&H: What drew you to this story?

Chb: I’ve known Victor and Fernando for years and always knew they wanted to get married. I was approached by a mutual friend who thought it was important to document their legal battle, not knowing really where this would end.

W&H: What do you want people to think about when they are leaving the theater?

Chb: I don’t really care if people have their own opinion on same-sex marriage, but I would love if people leaving the theater could feel empathy and respect towards the rights of others to love whomever they please and not have their right taken away for that reason.

W&H: What was the biggest challenge in making the film?

Chb: Making it with mainly a one-person crew.

W&H: How did you get your film funded? Share some insights into how you got the film made.

Chb: The yearand a half of shooting was done with no funding. Everything was paid out of my own pocket, although I was searching for funding that whole time. After the shooting was done and I had a first cut of the film, we entered the film in Ficg in La — Doculab.2 Los Angeles in the summer of 2015.

There we won seven of the eight post-production awards and that helped of the post-production of the film. A few months later we were awarded finishing funds from Foprocine, the Fund for Quality in Film Production, from Mexico, and that really helped us finalize the film.

W&H: What does it mean for you to have your film play at the Human Rights Watch Film Festival?

Chb: It is something that we hoped for when I was making the documentary. This type of festival was something that just seemed like a long shot. Now that we are playing at the festival, exposing it to the audience that attends the festival and the venues that it’s playing in New York, it means seeing three years of hard work — and closed doors — pay off.

W&H: What’s the best and worst advice you’ve received?

Chb: The worst advice: “Don’t do it. Don’t do the film unless you have money secured.”

I don’t remember the best advice for this particular project, but I can say the best encouragement came from someone outside the film business — my husband. He always believed this documentary would turn out great and always told me so, even when I couldn’t see the light at the end of the tunnel.

W&H: What advice do you have for other female directors?

Chb: For female directors in my country, Mexico (with a strong Latin Machista culture) I would say, just pick up the camera and do it. We don’t need doors and opportunities to open for us: we are those doors and those opportunities just waiting to happen. Get out of the assistant spot you’ve been handed and create your own project with or without help.

W&H: Name your favorite woman-directed film and why.

Chb: “Nobody Loves Me” by Doris Dörrie. It was one of the first films where I realized there was a female eye and sensitivity behind a project, and I’ve been a fan of her ever since.

W&H: There have been significant conversations over the last couple of years about increasing the amount of opportunities for women directors yet the numbers have not increased. Are you optimistic about the possibilities for change? Share any thoughts you might have on this topic.

Chb: There is a lack of opportunities and I don’t really think that will change fast, at least not in other parts of the world, but I am optimistic that we can create those opportunities ourselves, and if we create those with the help of other women, even better. We just grow stronger when we are together and it makes our projects that much better.

Human Rights Watch Ff 2017 Women Directors: Meet Cristina Herrera Borquez— “No Dress Code Required” was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Oj Fact Check: That Marcia Clark Tampax Joke Really Happened
(Spoiler warning: Please do not read on if you haven’t watched the latest episode of “People v. O.J. Simpson” entitled “Marcia, Marcia, Marcia.”) On Episode 6 of “The People v. O.J. Simpson,” Marcia Clark’s world closes in. The case isn’t going well. She’s in danger of losing her kids.

Berlin Film Review: ‘Fukushima, mon amour’

Berlin Film Review: ‘Fukushima, mon amour’
“A radiation vacation” — as the protagonist who survived 3/11 calls her brief encounter with a German volunteer — sums up the gallows humor of Doris Doerrie’s post-disaster traumedy, shot right in the middle of Fukushima’s Exclusion Zone. Lensed in poetic black-and-white with the German helmer-scribe’s trademark whimsical fantasy and peppered with absurdist cross-cultural gags, “Fukushima, mon amour” offers a refreshingly quirky perspective on a heavy subject, suggesting that sometimes audiences, and perhaps even victims, need a vacation from misery and pity. Judging by its rapturous response at the Berlinale, the pic should enjoy niche domestic success and small-screen deals across Europe and North America. Japanese viewers, however, may find the topic too touchy and painful to be given a funny treatment.

In addition to the more exotic and crowd-pleasing “Cherry Blossoms” (2008), also about a German traveler trying to overcome personal loss by soaking up foreign culture, Doerrie has set other films in Japan,

'The Sopranos' rewind looks at the intersection of gangsters & gangster rap

'The Sopranos' rewind looks at the intersection of gangsters & gangster rap
Welcome to the tenth installment of our summer trip through "The Sopranos" season 1. When I revisited early seasons of "The Wire," as well as the whole run of "Deadwood," I did separate versions of each review for newcomers and veterans, but over time realized that the newcomers weren't commenting much, if at all, and that it therefore made sense to simply do one review. Any significant spoilers for episodes beyond the one being reviewed will be contained in a separate section at the end of the review; so long as you avoid that, and the comments, you should be fine. Thoughts on the tenth episode, “A Hit Is a Hit," coming up just as soon I've recorded in Denmark... "But I never really understood what he felt — to be used for somebody else's amusement, like some fuckin' dancing bear — til I played golf with those guys." -Tony Like "The Legend of Tennessee Moltisanti,

'X Factor' Top 12: Josh Levi owns '80s night

When we join "The X Factor," host Mario Lopez informs us that it's '80s night -- but he emphasizes hits from the nineteen-eighties, which really makes us wonder if he thinks anybody is confused it might be the eighteen-eighties.

Meanwhile, the female judges are decked out in their best '80s attire, which is awesome. Scroogey old Simon, however, cannot be bothered to put a suit jacket on over his plain white t-shirt and rock a Crockett and/or Tubbs look. For shame, Cowell.

However, we must eliminate someone first. You know, we hope they told the act who was eliminated last week when it actually happened so that he or she didn't have to rehearse all this week like normal. That just seems mean.

Anyway, Carlos Guevara is eliminated and for once, America got it exactly right. He had a couple very rough nights, he shouldn't have advanced out of the four-chair challenge.

'Gallery Girls' vs. Ukraine's real-life 'Sleeping Beauty' art installation: Which is worse?

'Gallery Girls' vs. Ukraine's real-life 'Sleeping Beauty' art installation: Which is worse?
Where’s the art? I’m stumped.

I’ve been thinking a lot about this “living fairy tale” exhibit (see video below) at the National Art Museum of Ukraine, at which any male suitor above the age of 18 may kiss a young painted lady who’s pretending to be asleep. If she opens her eyes, they must get married. This is real! Look at her ear doilies! It’s all so bizarre and disease-y — but after settling in for some Monday night cable, I had to ask: Is it worse than Gallery Girls on Bravo?

Hellcats Review: "Nobody Loves Me But My Mother"

  • TVfanatic
The fourth episode of Hellcats proved why The CW has already ordered more episodes of the freshman series.

Titled “Nobody Loves Me But My Mother," provided everything I was looking for from the show: relationship drama, cheerleading practice and a lack of focus on the adult love triangle.

I couldn’t be more pleased with the Dan/Savannah situation. I wasn’t sure how this relationship was going to play out and I was nervous that it was going to be really cheesy. Yet tonight’s episode gave us just the opposite. Savannah really broke out of her shell and stepped up to both her family and Dan.

I was glad that Savannah finally confronted her mother, too. I can completely understand why she broke away to go to Lancer instead of staying at Memphis Christian. Living in that family situation could not be easy, as her mother made me tense just watching.

Hellcats 1.04 “Nobody Loves Me But My Mother” Advance Review

Tomorrow means a new episode of Hellcats, and today we have an advance review of “Nobody Loves Me But My Mother.” Even if it was written by someone whose experience with cheerleaders consists of fighting with them in high school.

As that no doubt informs you, Hellcats is not exactly the kind of show I’d watch if I wasn’t working on it. However, you can’t give me a series with the underrated Gale Harold (in something that for once isn’t dark or requiring him to be a complete jerk) and not get me curious, so I’ll admit that I watched last week’s episode, “Beale Street After Dark,” and was actually alright with it. This episode picks up somewhat where that one left off, with more complications thrown into the characters’ personal lives (as always): Marti (Aly Michalka) is doing a “will they or

Foo Fighter's Dave Grohl Debuts New Band, Them Crooked Vultures

Long-rumored superband Them Crooked Vultures, which personnel include Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl, have finally come out, making their debut performance at club Metro in Wrigleyville, Chicago. During the August 9 gig, they performed eleven tracks, one of which was titled "New Fang".

Them Crooked Vultures consist of Queens of the Stone Age's Josh Homme on guitar and vocals, Led Zeppelin's John Paul Jones on bass and Dave on drums. During their intimate concert at Metro, they were supported by Eleven's Alain Johannes who played rhythm guitar.

On why this new band chose to perform in Chicago, Josh told the concertgoers, "We could have done this in L.A." Then, he pantomimed a well-endowed woman performing a rude sexual act which made the crowd cheering wildly. "That's why we came here!" he said. "We came to Chicago because we wanted to play Metro!"

Following their live appearance at Metro, it is announced that "U.
