Sexting, lies and unveiled selfies: the Egyptian film exploring the hidden lives of teenage girls

Ayten Amin’s Souad is a razor-sharp portrayal of sisterhood and sexual awakening that is rarely represented on screenWhen the Egyptian director Ayten Amin was 10 years old, a classmate’s sister killed herself. The news gripped the school. But, in a society where suicide is a sin, no one talked about it; instead, they mourned the girl as though she had died mysteriously, or in an accident. “When I was shooting my first film, it suddenly hit me,” Amin says over a video call from her home in Cairo....

SnackMagic picks up $15M to expand from build-your-own snack boxes into a wider gifting marketplace

The office shut-down at the start of the Covid-19 pandemic last year spurred huge investment in digital transformation and a wave of tech companies helping with that, but there were some distinct losers in the shift, too — specifically those whose business models were predicated on serving the very offices that disappeared overnight. Today, one of the companies that had to make an immediate pivot to keep itself afloat is announcing a round of funding, after finding itself not just growing at a c...

The Advantages of Political Buffoonery

From a short piece riffing on Idi Amin and the political utility of being a buffoon by Mark Leopold, author of an Amin biography: What, then, are the advantages of political buffoonery? Off-hand, considering Amin’s career, I can think of at least five: 1) It leads opponents to underestimate the ability and intelligence of the buffoon. 2) It provides deniability — “it was only a joke.” 3) It appeals to core supporters (many Africans loved Amin’s teasing of the former colonial masters). 4) It...

2021 Sundance Film Festival Awards Go to ‘Coda,’ ‘Summer of Soul,’ and More

Today, the Golden Globe nominations were announced, and the results were pretty bad! So perhaps we should try to cleanse our palates with the 2021 Sundance Film Festival awards. This year’s Sundance was virtual, and while that experience can’t hold a candle to being on the ground in Park City, the festival organizers deserver lots of credit for putting the fest together in any capacity and running it smoothly. While I found a lot of the films I saw this year to be lacking, there were still plen...

‘Flee’ Review: Doc Explores the Layers of Truth in Afghan Refugee’s Survival Story

Mother’s Day celebrations

Mother’s Day as we know it in the United States traces back to May 10, 1908, and a woman named Anna Jarvis. Jarvis, then living in Philadelphia, had 500 carnations delivered to her hometown church in West Virginia for a memorial service honoring her late mother, thus becoming the holiday’s founder. In 1914, President Woodrow Wilson made Mother’s Day official, and the rest is flowerful, Hallmark-filled, brunched-up history. This American idea of Mother’s Day has since spread around the world, ...
