Sweet Movie

Film Review // by Stella Andrada Kasdovasili // On January 25th, 2019, Dusan Makavejev, one of the most prominent figures in Yugoslavian film history – and one of my favourite directors —died at the age of 86. The news of his death had somewhat of a reflective effect on me and I couldn’t help but think of his diverse work.

No Date, No Signature

Film Review // by Stella Andrada Kasdovasili // No date, No signature (Bedoune Tarikh, Bedoune Emza) by Iranian director Vahid Jalilvand is an intense moralist drama, tackling social, political, economic and gender issues in a beautifully depicted neorealist way.

Time’s up

TEXT BY: Stella Andrada Kasdovasili // Hungary/Greece || ILLUSTRATION BY: Ranafarba // France

“She talked for an hour or so. Told me everything. How everyone got divided. Everything got very complicated. Identities clashed. First came the men, then gay men, then trans men, then trans women, then women, then lesbian women, bisexuals (they really had it ugly, nobody ever believed they were even a thing), asexuals, metrosexuals, non-binary, queer. Riots, protests, violence in all possible ways and forms.”
