French Classics For Free!

Those of you who saw our screening of Godard's evergreen classic A Bout de Souffle last week, will be delighted to know that film site The Auteurs is running a week of classic 60s French films for free all this week. You may have to join the site first but nevertheless, it's serendipity people, and I for one will be watching as many as I can while smoking non-stop, pondering the impossibility of love, sloshing back wine and forgiving Thierry Henry (kind of).

Friday Shorts #2

Ramona Falls "I Say Fever" from Barsuk Records on Vimeo.

This week we have a music video from the band Ramona Falls. Why's it on a film blog? Because it's directed by a guy called Stefan Nadelman, who has a Sundance prize for his 22 minute film Terminal Bar, so he's a proper filmmaker and secondly, it's an astonishingly brilliant music video. In fact, the term 'music video' seems entirely inadequate to describe it. A mind-bendingly dark and imaginative short film would be more accurate, which just happens to have a song attached to it (a very good song too). Enjoy!
