I heart about this website couple of months ago... But didn't really believe it... Today I went through it, and I'm SO happy! THEY ARE BACK!

Andre Bosman (ex-employee of Polaroid) & Florian Kaps (International Lomography Association) decided to bring the polaroid back to life.

With some of their private investor's money, they bought the rests of the polaroid machines in Holland.

We can now make use of it and PHOTOGRAPH!... Because there is no better film, for me, then our old and dearest --- POLAROIDS.

"Sipping Jetstreams: An Adventure in Life"

Directed by Taylor Steele.

A surf movie. It was hard to find info about it. I know it was shot in Super 16mm, throughout the most exotic surf places of the world, as: Hong Kong, Cuba, Venice, Egypt, Morocco, and others.

It's a documentary, but with no interview. It follows 3 surfers throughout their trip. There are beautiful images of them surfing and my favorite part --- People of each country on their daily life, looking straight into the camera.

Kelly Slater is a part of it as well, and so is Donavon Frankenheiter.

I watched this movie about 20 times, but hadn't seen it over a year. It continues beautiful and makes me want to travel, what an urge!

Directed by Giorgos Lanthimos


Dogtooth. Wow! What can I say? I arrived 5 min late to the theater at 13th St (between University Pl & 5th Av).. I noticed something in the first second.. The framing. The director cuts the head of his characters in many frames, and we notice he really likes the legs. Which was def a good way to tell this crazy story.

3 young adults live in a house in Greece with their parents, but are completely isolated from the world. They never left the house, and grew up with unusual rules in there. The father always invites CRISTINA over to satisfy his son. Until, Cristina gives one of his daughters movies from the outside world in exchange for oral sex.

According to the parents, they are only ready for the "outside world" when their DOGTOOTH falls. They learn to bark when a Cat invades the house... They play games all day in exchange of stickers. Because in the end, whoever has more stickers get to choose the entertainment of the night.

In my opinion, it's an incredible and modern film. It's much more then what we see. For me it's about society, and how in the end, we humans are like dogs. It's about family love, and about justice.

The shots are beautiful, and the characters are simply unforgettable!

P.S. Yes, the father is fucked up in the head. But he does love his children and will do anything to take them far away from our cruel world. Unfair? Yes. But he has his reasons.

P.S.2. Someone did leave the theater in a "disturbing" scene. But remember: if you put yourself into the character's life, you will know that they didn't know what was ETHICAL. Go watch :)
