YOUR WISH by TALISCO on on Weekend Watching 160814 on OneSmallWindow.com

Baba

The film is described as “a short animated collection of memories from a Turkish refugee in New Zealand” I’ve placed it in the list because it is so beautiful to look at.

Les Éphémères

A beautifully realized film about fleeting memories.

This Feral Life

For that title alone I would be interested, and then there is the film itself. Quietly fierce, anchored by a strong central performance, and a narrative that every individual is experiencing personally on some level or the other.

NOTE: Contains strong language.

Cap’n Shmelly and the Sperm Whale

Beautiful animation and some genuinely funny moments. What more can one ask for?

99 Locations of New York

Commercials and music video director Menzkie figured out a fresh approach to presenting New York’s familiar vistas.

Character actors have an important message for Hollywood

Very cool, very nicely done, and featuring some very interesting actors.

Your Wish

The video for this song by Talisco was shot on film. But that is not the only reason we are celebrating it, this is good old fashioned sing-along music. And there is the need to give much thanks for that alone.

Elvis

Independent filmmaker and screenwriter.
