Art-House Nature Film of the Day: In his latest short film, the Terrence Malick-inspired We Were Wanderers On A Prehistoric Earth, James W. Griffiths (of Splitscreen Love Story fame) pens a visually stunning video love letter “to the incredible flora and fauna of Malaysia.”

My favourite 2 hour long Chemical Brothers music video

Skwerl is a short film made for Kino Sydney #47 containing fake English dialogue.

Inside the Twisted World of an IKEA Catalog

The genre: sci-fi. The prop: glasses. The line of dialogue: ”Amazingly beautiful, yet hopelessly impractical.” These were the mandatory ingredients for this short film, created in just two days for a 48 hour film contest in the Netherlands.

The result was Page 23, a brilliant satire of an IKEA-style domestic fantasy, and unsurprisingly, it swept the competition. The team of three filmmakers that created it, Jeroen Houben, Tim Arts and Stefan van den Boogaard, describe the breakneck process of developing and shooting the piece in an interview with The Atlantic.

Taqwacore: The Birth of Punk Islam by Omar Majeed
When he was 17, Michael Knight left his mother’s home in Rochester to study Islam at a Pakistani madrassa. It was his first act of rebellion – against his abusive, schizophrenic, white-supremacist father. Years later, burned out on the demands of religious dogma, Mike rebelled once more – by penning a Muslim Punk manifesto called The Taqwacores. Striking a chord with young Muslims around the world, Taqwacore soon became a scene. This film follows Michael and his band of Muslim punks as they journey across the U.S. and Pakistan, transforming their worlds, their religion and themselves through the spirit of Taqwacore.
Omar Majeed is a filmmaker, a Gemini-Award winning editor, a motion graphics artist and celebrated raconteur par excellence. He is also a devoted husband, friend, armchair-therapist, bookbinder, soda-pop mixer, punk provocateur, sensitive poet, insufferable gadfly, cinephile snob, and can play three-chord rock very well on his accoustic guitar. Taqwacore is his latest film and he really wants you to see it.
Taqwacore will be screening at 815pm this Sunday (16 August) at The Substation, as part of the 4th Singapore Indie Doc Fest. More details / ticketing here »

Hey SG

I’ve got a crazy idea. I’d love to do a live film score (this is what I do). I need someone with a short film(s), locally produced or otherwise. We could pitch it to Sinema.

Norwegian Wood ends its run at The Picturehouse tomorrow.

GQ:

The daring German filmmaker Werner Herzog once walked a thousand miles to propose to a woman. He once plotted to firebomb his leading man’s house and once ate his own shoe to square a bet. He once got shot in the stomach during a TV interview, then insisted on finishing. […]

The myth of his movies was compounded by the myth of Herzog himself; over time he became almost as famous for the stories of what happened during the making of his movies as for the movies themselves, particularly the two he made in the Peruvian Amazon, Aguirre and Fitzcarraldo. Fitzcarraldo took several years to complete and was beset by obstacles, and its on-screen story—the tale of an ambitious delusional man with a crazy dream to carry a ship from one river to another over a jungle-covered mountain—seemed to also become the story of its making. (Characteristically, Herzog decided that the best way to film a ship being moved over a mountain deep in the rain forest was to actually move a ship over a mountain deep in the rain forest, and film it.) From such stories, and from the intense and obsessive man Herzog seemed to be in the interviews he would give back then, the perception grew that he might genuinely be crazy.

Note to self: See Fitzcarraldo.

Living Without Money:

Is it possible to feel rich without possessions? Can you live happily without money? In the documentary Living Without Money, we meet the German woman Heidemarie Schwermer who made a deliberate choice to live without money 14 years ago.

Update! The first show sold out, so Sinema’s having a second screening at 730pm this Saturday. Remember entry is by barter (though you might need a dollar to book online). About 130 seats left as I’m writing this. Ticketing details here!
