La Jetée by Chris Marker (1962)
watching La Jetee when i was 18 profoundly changed not only the way i watch films, but the way i look at photographs and the way at storytelling/making. rip chris marker.

The Glittering World

Molly Surno is a multi-disciplinary artist, her work ranging from immersive and itinerant public film screenings (Cinema 16), to an upcoming documentary about the Miss Trans World Indian pageant. “The Glittering World” is a series of Polaroid photographs taken with the transgender Native American community while working on this film.

Her work reveals a new reality not only outside of societal norms, but also outside of stereotypical perspectives on subcultures altogether. When we think drag queens, we think pink, heeled, altogether with Western feminine ideals. When we think desert, we do not think disco ball. “The Glittering World” reminds us of the profound diversity of America, and how we yield new traditions through our historical fantasies and present desires. Surno’s use of expired Polaroid film even feels radical, and outside of the usual analog mourning—“nostalgia isn’t what it used to be.”

“The Glittering World” is on view, along with more of Surno’s work, at Gasser / Grunert, closing this week, Friday, July 13.

“Right, and a love story is a love story. And I don’t want to see any more gay movies where somebody dies of AIDS or is in a straight relationship and gets turned and then turns back, like fucking I’m over it, we’re beyond it, let’s go.”

i had this conversation with my friend deegan after i told him how much i loved southern comfort. every film with a trans character follows one of two plotlines: how they died too young/were murdered because they were trans or the trans person is a psychotic murderer driven mad by their desire to be the “opposite” gender. it’s so fucking shitty. even when we’re telling the stories of real people we feel the need to impose these scripts on them. where’s the multiplicity of stories? or representations?

this movie is terrible

does this motherfucker act in ANY GOOD MOVIES? i watch movies that he’s in cos i’m like ooh baby he foine but then the movie sucks and i want to stab my eyeballs.

chelsea i don’t know if anyone answered you yet but from my experience the answer is unfortunately fuck no.

that said i’m not a huge fan of (recent) french films. this one (la belle personne) and deux jours à tuer are two of the most awful films i have seen in the last 5 years. unbearable-give-me-back-the-time-i-wasted-watching-you awful.

i sat through this solely because of léa seydoux’s face.
