  • Uncertain (2015) Teaser

    Uncertain is an actual place somewhere on the border between Louisiana and Texas. You wouldn’t be able to find this place if you were not lost (to paraphrase the town’s sheriff). It’s one of these places on Earth you wouldn’t believe even existed. People migrate there to find quiet, lushing and stress-free existence. They are…

  • The Swedish Theory of Love (2015) Review

    “Internationally Sweden is seen as a perfect society, a raw model and a symbol of the highest achievements of human progress.

  • The Amina Profile (2015) Teaser

    A Gay Girl In Damascus: The Amina Profile represents the type of film where there’s a story within a story within a story. The slow and systematic unfolding is not only engaging but consuming. The story explores the events leading to the scam which took place back in 2011. It was when Amina, a Syrian-American woman,…

  • In Utero (2015) Review

    The pre-festival screening of In Utero took place the day before CPH: DOX Festival started. It was a slow, quiet and foggy day in the capital of Denmark. As I arrived at the cinema (Empire Bio is located in the most diverse borough of Copenhagen, Nørrebro) I noticed approximately 30 baby carriages parked in front of the…

  • God Bless The Child (2015) Teaser

    God Bless The Child is very subtle and cinéma vérité styled movie showing one summer day of the life of five children abandoned by their troubled mother. The story begins at the crack of dawn as Rebecca (mom) pulls away from the driveway completely ignoring her son running barefoot after her. His screams remain unanswered. The…

  • Field Niggas (2014) Teaser

    Field Niggas, next to the controversial title, is a visually stunning and conceptually innovative movie. The images are not synchronized with the audio, which helped with creating this visual symphony. Everything is shot in slow motion. It’s like a hallucinogenic version of Humans of New York. Khalik Allah, the film director managed to get very close…
