All landscapes become intertwined with one another throughout the course of the video, however, with the chicken remaining the only constant. Perhaps there is a...Read...

Finisterrae (2010) Film Review

Finisterrae Directed and Written by Sergio Caballero Lecha, Cinematography by Eduard Grau Spain, 2010 What exactly is Finisterrae? Dadaist art project? Absurdist bildungsroman?

Sally Tomato’s Toy Room (2010) Film Review

Sally Tomato’s rock opera, Toy Room, arrived with a cover that boasted of four acts and ten accumulated laurels from the 2009 festival circuit.
