Watch PBS’ American Masters Documentaries (Including Scorsese’s Homage to Kazan) Free Online | Cinema Zeal | Scoop.it
Each new American Masters broadcast, when it debuts on television, tends to receive a hero's welcome.
Xaos's insight:

The 18 minute "Connecting" documentary is an exploration of the future of Interaction Design and User Experience from some of the industry's thought leaders. As the role of software is catapulting forward, Interaction Design is seen to be not only increasing in importance dramatically, but also expected to play a leading role in shaping the coming "Internet of things." Ultimately, when the digital and physical worlds become one, humans along with technology are potentially on the path to becoming a "super organism" capable of influencing and enabling a broad spectrum of new behaviors in the world.

Bed Peace Revisits John Lennon & Yoko Ono’s Famous Anti-Vietnam Protests

Bed Peace Revisits John Lennon & Yoko Ono’s Famous Anti-Vietnam Protests | Cinema Zeal | Scoop.it

Dear Friends,In 1969, John and I were so naïve to think that doing the Bed-In would help change the world.
Well, it might have. But at the time, we didn’t know.

It was good that we filmed it, though.
The film is powerful now.
What we said then could have been said now.

In fact, there are things that we said then in the film, which may give some encouragement and inspiration to the activists of today. Good luck to us all.

Let’s remember WAR IS OVER if we want it.
It’s up to us, and nobody else.
John would have wanted to say that.

Love, yoko

Fellini: I’m a Born Liar Profiles the Filmmaker’s Love of Artifice (and Features Italo Calvino)

in Film | October 25th, 2012 1 Comment

“If you know little about Fellini,” warns Roger Ebert in his review of Fellini: I’m a Born Liar (watch it free online here), ”this is not the place to start.” Perhaps he rightly issues such a disclaimer about a formally unorthodox documentary that plunges deeply and immediately into the aesthetics of its subject’s work while paying barely any heed to the facts of his life. But if you can’t say that Federico Fellini dealt near-exclusively in aesthetics, you can’t say it about anyone. The director’s love of artifice, which eventually led to his total dedication to shooting all scenes on a soundstage, produced motion pictures so flamboyant yet so distinctive and personal that first-time viewers still find themselves undecided as to whether to call them elegant or grotesque. The verdict, as any regular attendee of revival screenings of 8½, Juliet of the Spirits, Satyricon, and Amarcord knows, is that they’re both: grotesque to the extent of their elegance, and elegant to the extent of their grotesqueness. This already gives documentarian Damian Pettigrew much to work with, and indeed, he would have had the material and expertise to assemble a robust essay film on Fellini’s visuals alone. But he chose to make a fresher examination.

Bowling for Columbine: It’s Online and 10 Years Later the School Massacres Continue. Have You Had Enough?!

Bowling for Columbine: It’s Online and 10 Years Later the School Massacres Continue. Have You Had Enough?! | Cinema Zeal | Scoop.it
In April 1999, Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold murdered 12 students and one teacher in Columbine, Colorado, while injuring 21 others.
Xaos's insight:

Michael Moore documented the tragedy in his 2002 film, Bowling for Columbine, which sits on YouTube, available for everyone to see. It’s heartbreaking to think that a decade later, students are no safer at their schools. If anything, gun control has slackened during the intervening years (thanks partly to the Supreme Court) and mass murders have become more commonplace, if not a monthly occurrence. 12 were killed and 52 injured in Aurora, CO in July. 10 killed in a Sikh temple shooting in Wisconsin this August. Five gunned down at Accent Signage Systems in Minnesota in October. Two shot dead at a mall in Portland, Oregon earlier this week. And now 20 youngsters and seven adults killed at an elementary school today in Connecticut.

Jonas Mekas, Walden, 1969 (excerpt)

 Jonas Mekas - Walden/Diaries, Notes and Sketches  1969, 16mm color 180 With Jonas Mekas, P.

Since 1950 I have been keeping a film diary. I have been walking around with my Bolex and reacting to the immediate reality: situations, friends, New York, seasons of the year. On some days I shot ten frames, on others ten seconds, still on others ten minutes. Or I shot nothing. When one writes diaries, it's a retrospective process: you sit down, you look back at your day, and you write it all down. To keep a film (camera) diary, is to react (with your camera) immediately, now, this instant: either you get it now, or you don't get it at all. To go back and shoot it later, it would mean restaging, be it events or feelings. To get it now, as it happens, demands the total mastery of one's tools (in this case, Bolex): it has to register the reality to which I react and also it has to register my state of feeling (and all the memories) as I react. Which also means, that I had to do all the structuring (editing) right there, during the shooting, in the camera. All footage that you'll see in the Diaries is exactly as it came out from the camera: there was no way of achieving it in the editing room without destroying its form and content."Walden contains materials from the years 1965-69, strung together in chronological order. For the soundtrack I used some of the sounds that I collected during the same period: voices, subways, much street noise, bits of Chopin (I am a romantic), and other significant and insignificant sounds."

-- Jonas Mekas

Meetin’ WA: Jean-Luc Godard Meets Woody Allen in 26 Minute Film | Cinema Zeal | Scoop.it

he great French New Wave director, Jean-Luc Godard, turns 81 years old today. And Woody Allen, the legendary comedic filmmaker, turned 76 just two days ago. So what could be more perfect than to serve up Godard’s 1986 short film Meetin’ WA? What you get is Godard, one of the driving forces behind La Nouvelle Vague, in conversation with Woody Allen. Godard’s trademark approach to filmmaking, the expected dose of Woody Allen neuroses – they’re all there, packed into 26 minutes.

Quentin Tarantino Gives Sneak Peek of Pulp Fiction to Jon Stewart (1994) | Cinema Zeal | Scoop.it

They’re now fixtures in our culture — one on television, the other in cinema. But that wasn’t quite the case in 1994. The world had yet to lay eyes on Pulp Fiction, Quentin Tarantino’s rollicking film that eventually landed the Palme d’Or at the ’94 Cannes Film Festival. And Jon Stewart was still five years away from taking the helm of The Daily Show, which … you know … is the wittiest show on American TV. The clip above brings you back to their salad days, with Tarantino (31 years old) and Stewart (32 years old) talking about Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs, and the great spaghetti westerns of Sergio Leone….
