Hey thanks for the shoutout #hollyweb! And thanks again for having me last month! #repost @hollywebfestival ・・・ Screened at #hollyweb18 👉Arun Considers follows its creator/star, Indian American screenwriter Arun Narayanan, as he walks through the streets of Los Angeles while a voiceover provides his darkly comedic inner monologue, delving into provocative subjects like pornography addiction and discrimination in airports.
❤️CAPHARNAÜM-NADINE LABAKI❤️ #cannes2018#officialselection#competition JURY PRIZE 2018 The Lebanese director Nadine Labaki won the Jury Prize for her CAPHARNAÜM this year @festivaldecannes which is the equivalent of the third place award. Labaki would have been only the second woman to win the Palme d’Or, and certainly the first Muslim woman director should she have won. Did she deserve the Palme d’Or? The synopsis @festivaldecannes shares on its website is a dialogue from the film: ‘Zain, a 12 year old boy, faces the Judge. THE JUDGE: Why are you suing your own parents? ZAIN: For giving me life.’ #nadinelabaki takes us to the streets of Beirut, Lebanon. The two year old Yonas (#BoluwatifeTreasureBankole) and the 12 year old (who sues his parents in court) Zain, portrayed with heartbreaking excellence by #zainalrafeea are trying to survive among the ruins, in thralls of poverty and away from questionable parents. #capharnaÜm’s big subjects are poverty, illegal immigrants, flawed parents and the plight of innocent children. The director handles these issues without compromise, but with great empathy and steely resolve. A fine actress and a fine director of two previous pictures, nothing could have prepared you to expect this sensational, great picture from Nadine Labaki. The gritty camera work in the streets of Beirut shot with two young children is miraculous. Zain and Yonas traveling the streets on a skateboard with cooking pots is an unforgettable moment of pure cinema.The direction of Labaki, the choices she makes with each actor including #yordanosshiferaw are remarkable. The terrific cinematography is by #christopheraoun, the music by #khaledmouzanar. #capharnaum might easily win the Best Foreign Language Film Award at the next Oscars ceremony @theacademy. The best film I saw this year, this neorealist classic will rip your heart, tear it into pieces and will remain with you for a longtime. Bravo @nadinelabaki!
