If Filipinos Want To See Four Historic Documentaries, They Have To Go To London And Pay Per Minute

Some professors and grad students are trying to change that, but right now, the situation is this: “The four films that the organizers are hoping to digitize (Fabrication Des Chapeaux De Manille, Industrie De L’abaca A L’ile De Cebu, Glimpses Of The Culion Leper Colony And Of Culion Life, and Manila Street Scene) are among the oldest examples of Philippine filmmaking but are currently only available on 35mm in London’s British Film Institute National Archive on a pay-per-minute basis. This make...

The Opposite Of Beauty With Tories And Housing Development In Brexit Britain

Rowan Moore spares no words in this scathing overview of Tory-approved developments – and finds the Tory architectural guru, the late philosopher Roger Scruton, useless on this count. “Beauty, in other words, is more than skin-deep. It is ugly to cut affordable housing, to force people into their cars if they want to go out for something to eat, to put people into dank boxes, no matter what their architectural style.” (Don’t miss the line about the publisher of Asian Babes and Horny Housewives....

Netflix Says ‘The Crown’ Will End One Season Earlier Than It Was Supposed To

Well, this is interesting. As the series gets closer and closer to the present, perhaps some members of the Royal Family have expressed strong displeasure. One wonders. In any case: The role played by Claire Foy and Olivia Colman next goes to Imelda Staunton. Writer and producer Peter Morgan: “At the outset I had imagined The Crown running for six seasons but now that we have begun work on the stories for season five it has become clear to me that this is the perfect time and place to stop.” – ...

Peak TV Is Surprisingly Like Peak Books

They’re not at all the same – and the internet is more distracting from books than TV is – but: “As with classic unread novels, certain TV shows have begun to carry with them a hint of obligation. There are so many shows that people assure me are really good, really smart, really fun, shows like Breaking Bad and Borgen and Schitt’s Creek. Then there are the documentaries that promise to teach history: Ken Burns’s Vietnam, Ava DuVernay’s When They See Us, Ken Burns’s Country Music, OJ: Made in A...

A Fired Artistic Director Won’t Continue Her Lawsuit To Be Reinstated At Pina Bausch’s Dance Company

Sounds like the Tanztheater Wuppertal might not be the easiest place to run: Adolphe Binder, who was dismissed in 2018 after only a year in the job, was the fourth person to run the troupe since Bausch died in 2009. “During her brief tenure, she commissioned works from the choreographers Dimitris Papaioannou and Alan Lucien Oyen — the first full-length pieces to be created for the company since Bausch’s death. They were well received and have toured widely. But in a statement issued at the time...

Comics Are Poetry, And Here’s Why

Let Ivan Brunetti break it down for you: Comics are “an incantation beckoning us to enter their world. The simplicity of their superficial concision can reveal surprising density, layers, and multivalence.” – Paris Review

Does Classical Music Have A ‘God Status’ Problem At Conservatories?

The answer, students say, is absolutely yes – and the #MeToo movement hasn’t yet begun to filter through many conservatory halls. “Over the past year, The Atlantic talked to more than four dozen young musicians about their experiences with classical-music education and sexual misconduct. Their accounts reveal a culture built on hierarchy, critique, and reputation, and show how such a culture can facilitate abuse.” – The Atlantic

John Le Carré Gets A Major Award, And Says Brexit Broke His Heart

Le Carré, as he accepted the Olof Palme prize: “I want a Palme for my country, which in my lifetime hasn’t produced a single statesman of his stamp. I want him now. I’m not just a remainer. I’m a European through and through, and the rats have taken over the ship, I want to tell him. It’s breaking my heart and I want it to break yours. We need your voice to wake us from our sleepwalk, and save us from this wanton act of political and economic self-harm. But you’re too late.” – The Guardian (UK)...

Disney Sheds Hulu’s CEO, But Hulu’s Future Seems Assured

While Disney wants to “integrate” Hulu into its own streaming services operations, Hulu isn’t going anywhere – yet. “Hulu, known for original series such as the Emmy-winning The Handmaid’s Tale, is also a key part of Disney’s streaming strategy. While Disney+ is the home to more family friendly-content, Hulu is expected to carry edgier programming from Disney-owned properties.” – Los Angeles Times

When Writing Your Novel Means Facing Unsavory Realities

Writer Abi Daré wasn’t planning to deal with a new novel, and a normalized practice among middle-class families in Nigeria, when her 8-year-old wouldn’t unload the dishwasher. But inspiration strikes where it will. She says, “When I was writing it, I did not think it would get published. So I was really telling myself a story.” – The New York Times

If You Ever Wondered How Crocheting Became Hip, Del Pitt Feldman, Who Just Died At 90, Was The Artist Behind The Trend

Feldman took the classic doily craft and turned it into fashion and art. She sold her creations mostly “at Studio Del, a boutique she opened in 1965 on East Seventh Street in Manhattan’s East Village. The garments — including open-weave vests, string bikinis, minidresses and capes — seemed to capture the freewheeling spirit of the neighborhood and of the 1960s counterculture. Her clientele included Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Grace Slick and Andy Warhol.” – The New York Times

The Practical And Ethical Challenges Of Conserving, Or Restoring, Damaged Works Of Art

It’s not an easy line to walk, and there’s a question of how far back they should go to “restore” the original work. Now, some conservation studios are also starting to work with contemporary artists, especially those who work in materials that can, er, “morph” over time, so that the art remains in good shape for centuries. – The Observer (UK)

Protests Around The ‘West Side Story’ Dancer Bring His Dancer Girlfriend Into The Limelight

Alexa Maxwell is the girlfriend of Amar Ramasar, the dancer who was fired, and then rehired, by City Ballet for his role in sharing nude photos and videos of dancers – including Maxwell. “‘I am not a victim in this,’ the dancer, Alexa Maxwell, said in a news release. She explained that Mr. Ramasar had expressed his regret over the situation and that she had forgiven him.” (She was not, however, the only one whose images were shared without permission.) – The New York Times

The Grim ‘Secular Funeral’ Music Of Brexit

So this is how Great Britain’s time in the EU ends, not with a bang, but … “Edward Gregson, the British composer charged by Radio 4’s PM programme with the tricky task of composing a piece to mark the UK’s departure from the union, uses Beethoven’s theme as the basis for his ‘Notes Between Friends,’ a brief, melancholic duet for piano and cello (played by the composer and Peter Dixon, principal cello of the BBC Philharmonic). Gregson insists he has been even-handed in his treatment – the brief...

Have Publishers Learned Anything From The ‘American Dirt’ Debacle?

Though we’re not sure why they would, considering the book’s sales, Slate takes a gander at what publishers are saying about #ownvoices books. Or, well, they’re not; they mostly seem to think the book was simply positioned for the wrong market. “‘You can’t be Twitter woke and Walmart ambitious,’ the assistant editor quipped.” Wow, OK. That certainly says something about what publishers are thinking. – Slate
