Book your Sunday outing for the ever-popular Movie Sundays
We’re bringing you three short films today:
The digital revolution of the last decade has unleashed creativity and talent of people in an unprecedented way, unleashing unlimited creative opportunities. But does democratized culture mean better art, film, music and literature or is true talent instead flooded and drowned in the vast digital ocean of mass culture? Is it cultural democracy or mediocrity? This is the question addressed by PressPausePlay, a documentary film containing interviews with some of the world’s most influential creators of the digital era.
12:00 Experience Creative Woodstock
“Experience Creative Woodstock” is a student film showcasing the creative side of Woodstock, and the surrounding areas. This film was a collaboration consisting of students from five leading creative institutions in the Woodstock area, and was completed within 36 hours. The institutions that took part are: The Animation School, B.H.C School of Design, The Design Academy of Fashion, Cape Audio College, and Ruth Prowse School of Art. This year we had 57 students who participated, they were divided into 5 groups and were only given 36 hours to complete their clips. This year there was no topic – giving students the opportunity to explore and be creative.
15:00 Miss Representation
Written and directed by Jennifer Siebel Newsom, Miss Representation exposes how mainstream media contribute to the under-representation of women in positions of power and influence in America. Miss Representation includes stories from teenage girls and provocative interviews with politicians, journalists, entertainers, activists, and academics like Lisa Ling, Nancy Pelosi, Condoleezza Rice, Katie Couric, Rachel Maddow, Rosario Dawson, Jackson Katz, Jean Kilbourne, and Gloria Steinem. The film offers startling facts and statistics to leave audiences shaken and armed with a new perspective.
