Luce App Tracks the Fine Details of Film Photography

Digital images today are captured with an EXIF meta data layer that stores pertinent facts about the shot so that photographers can study, report and refine their technique. Analog photography (somewhat by definition) remains largely under-serviced by this kind of high-tech service. Luce, an upstart iOS app—from developers Don Chia and his partner, Diego—offers a centralized space for analog photographers to log image data while …

Why you should visit Milan even if you aren’t into fashion

Milan is synonymous with Italian fashion and design. Its Fashion Week is on any style aficionado’s calendar, its Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II is the oldest shopping arcade in Italy, and its designer shops are revered as historic monuments. But Milan offers far more than spending opportunities. It’s home to one of the most iconic artworks in the world, its signature dish is flavored with gold, and its bars hark back to the glamorous 1940s. Here are nine reasons to visit Milan if your budget d...

‘Luce’ Review: A Stirring Psychodrama About Race, Erasure, and Prejudice [Tribeca]

The title character in Luce (played by Kelvin Harrison Jr.) is functional and exceptional on the surface. He’s a star student, a valedictorian high schooler. He is the model of an inspirational American Dream story that many blind optimists love to eat up: a black teen who overcame his trauma as a child soldier in Eritrea and seized and earned every opportunity imaginable. His well-off adoptive Caucasian parents (Naomi Watts and Tim Roth) look proudly upon him. The school is investing its hope...

The best-looking bars in Italy

With centuries of iconic design to draw on, Italy is home to many expertly styled drinking establishments. In Milan, you can enter a bar and be transported back in time to Italy’s rationalism of the ‘30s or the iconic industrial look of the ‘50s. Further south, convention goes out the window with a flamingo-filled tropical bar in Puglia and a smoky speakeasy in Rome.

Sundance 2019: Julius Onah's Provocative High School Drama 'Luce'

There's nothing like a great film that challenges your own prejudices and feelings, in an engaging and mind-blowing way.
