Film

Tuya's Marriage
Shot against the bleak backdrop of Inner Mongolia, director Wang Quan’an’s short but richly detailed film shows a stark contrast to the gritty, urban life of Beijing. The story centers on Tuya (Yu Nan) and Bater (Bater), a couple who are scratching out an existence with two young children while living on the unforgiving plains bordering Siberia.

Blood Brothers
Director Alexi Tan and famed director-turned-producer John Woo take advantage of the liberal standards of Hong Kong (which adhere to a distinctly looser version of the Chinese rating system) and the facilities of Taiwan to make a gangster tale of three country boys who venture out from an idyllic small town in China’s Shanghai province to take on the big city.

Lost In Beijing
Director Li Yu’s third feature has raised the most controversy recently, second only to Ang Lee’s tale of subterfuge and betrayal, Lust, Caution. With strict codes determining the rating system used by China’s Film Bureau, the film that tells an unwelcome story of life in Beijing was effectively killed due to the depiction of prostitution, rape, graphic sex and blackmail.

No Ser Dios Y Cuidarlos
No Ser Dios Y Cuidarlos delves into the one-of-a-kind experience provided by Buenos Aires’ Centro Universitario Devoto (CUD)—an educational program founded more than 20 years ago by the University Of Buenos Aires (UBA), and operating within the walls of Argentina’s infamous Villa Devoto maximum-security penitentiary.

Leonera
Fresh from its widespread acclaim at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, the latest film from director Pablo Trapero portrays the lives of ordinary people with a critical eye toward modern Argentine society.

Chanting Down Babylon
He might be just over five feet tall, but producer, singer and roots messenger Lee “Scratch” Perry casts a profoundly huge shadow over Jamaican music and culture. For that reason alone, it’s amazing to consider how long fans have been waiting for a film like The Upsetter to come around.

One-To-One Diplomacy
Eran Kolirin’s debut film The Band’s Visit has enjoyed widespread appeal, irrespective of whether one keeps up with the latest developments in Arab-Israeli relations. New York-born Israeli director Eytan Fox’s 2004 film Walk On Water, released on DVD in 2005 and worth revisiting here, shows a different side of Israeli relations as they unfold both within the country and beyond its borders.

A Clash Of Ideas
The Romanian film 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days will make you mighty glad to live in a time and place where woman have abortion rights, while Julien Temple's documentary The Future Is Unwritten might just make you feel a little better about not being Joe Strummer.

A Sowbiz Biopic And An Agitprop Drama
Phil Nugent looks at La Vie En Rose, a cinematic biography of the legendary (and legendarily troubled) French singer Edith Piaf. He also subjects himself to the agitprop African docudrama Bamako.
By Phil Nugent

Remembering Ousmane Sembene
For 40 years, the late Ousmane Sembene was the pride of African Cinema. His last film, Moolaade, took on the harrowing subject of female genital mutilation—a poignant statement reflective of the director's amazing career.
