Kino! Festival of German Films review of Nan Goldin - I Remember Your Face

Submitted by Spirit of the Thing on June 16, 2014 - 12:23pm


 

Capturing the essence of an artist seems to me to be one of the hardest things to do. So much of what makes one an artist (I assume) happens in one's head, an interior monologue that Terrence Malick would be jealous of utilizing. Sabine Lidl's entrancing documentary, Nan Goldin - I Remember Your Face, seems to get pretty close to doing so.

The film obviously follows Nan Goldin, the world renowned photographer, as she negotiates time in Paris and Berlin, meeting with friends and colleagues, old and new, talking us through her trials and tribulations as a woman in the world she has chosen to inhabit. She lives up to the perception many might have of what an artist of her stature is like -an eccentric who details her  obscure tastes in the art she collects (Catholic in nature), tells tales of wild times living in squats with 40+ people, describes her spiral into drug addiction and subsequent drying out as well as the numerous people she has fallen in love with only to have that love unrequited, all of which is included in or fueled her work. And its her work that is foremost in her mind. Books to publish, narrated slideshows to produce, new style collage combining themed work juxtaposed with famous art works by masters - all of it consumes her and occupies her every moment (at least as laid out in the film).

Interview: 'The Moment' Director Jane Weinstock

Submitted by Indiebizliz on June 12, 2014 - 1:23pm


 

We trust what we see with our eyes. They are our tool to navigate through the world. What happens when your eyes deceive you? In Jane Weinstock’s The Moment, an international photojournalist Lee (Jennifer Jason Leigh) begins an affair with a writer she meets in a rehab center. John (Martin Henderson) has a rough past and after they break up, John mysteriously vanishes. This pushes Lee’s fragile psyche over the edge. Her ex-husband and daughter (Alia Shawkat) admit her to get help. In sessions with her therapist (Marianne Jean-Baptiste) Lee begins to have flashes of what may or may not be memories of the the night before John went missing. Can she trust herself? The film jumps in time and the audience is left with a labyrinthine puzzle to piece together. Jennifer is haunting in her quiet reflection. The photography in the movie is stunning and personal.

I was able to sit down with Jane and discuss the movie. Here are the top 10 highlights from my interview.
