“Emily in Paris” and the Rise of Ambient TV

Thoughts and discussion welcome!
///

EXCERPT:

The purpose of “Emily in Paris” is to provide sympathetic background for staring at your phone, refreshing your own feeds—on which you’ll find “Emily in Paris” memes, including a whole genre of TikTok remakes. It’s O.K. to look at your phone all the time, the show seems to say, because Emily does it, too. The episodic plots are too thin to ever be confusing; when you glance back up at the television, chances are that you’ll find tracking shots of the Seine or cobblestoned alleyways, lovely but meaningless. If you want more drama, you can open Twitter, to augment the experience. Or just leave the show on while cleaning the inevitable domestic messes of quarantine. Eventually, sensing that you’ve played two episodes straight without pausing or skipping, Netflix will ask if you’re still really watching. Shamed, I clicked the Yes button, and Emily continued being in Paris.

In this and other recent programming, Netflix is pioneering a genre that I’ve come to think of as ambient television. It’s “as ignorable as it is interesting,” as the musician Brian Eno wrote, when he coined the term “ambient music” in the liner notes to his 1978 album “Ambient 1: Music for Airports,” a wash of slow melodic synth compositions. Ambient denotes something that you don’t have to pay attention to in order to enjoy but which is still seductive enough to be compelling if you choose to do so momentarily. Like gentle New Age soundscapes, “Emily in Paris” is soothing, slow, and relatively monotonous, the dramatic moments too predetermined to really be dramatic. Nothing bad ever happens to our heroine for long. The earlier era of prestige TV was predicated on shows with meta-narratives to be puzzled out, and which merited deep analyses read the day after watching. Here, there is nothing to figure out; as prestige passes its peak, we’re moving into the ambient era, which succumbs to, rather than competes with, your phone.

ROMANIAN FILM FEST is happening through Sunday! On our incredible roster of films includes Marona’s Fantastic Tale, an award winning animated film by director Anca Damian.

ABOUT MARONA’S FANTASTIC TALE:
Marona is a little dog who, after surviving a car accident, recalls all of her masters whom she loved unconditionally. Beautifully told and colorfully drawn, this animation presents ordinary episodes in a pet’s life from the pet’s point of view, imagining, or rather revealing, what animals go through in a world controlled by humans.

Selected at numerous festivals, Marona’s Fantastic Tale won Best Animated Feature at the Bucheon International Animation Film Festival, the Dublin Film Critics’ Special Jury Prize, the Audience Award at Gijon, and the Grand Prize at the Tokyo Anime Awards.

** Live Discussion with film critic Monica Filimon took place on Nov. 15 at 7:30pm PST!... view it below at https://youtu.be/MeVmHYLuVBE

(Radu Jude, Romania, 2020, 128 min)

Mugur Călinescu, a high school student in a provincial city, writes graffiti messages about food shortages and a lack of freedom. He is caught, and his family, neighbors, and friends all are subjected to intimidation and interrogation to break any form of resistance.

Radu Jude’s film combines archival footage from Romania’s infamous secret police, old TV clips, and a cinematic recreation of Gianina Cărbunariu’s “documentary play” by the same title. Camera, like in Jude’s other films, is not simply a recording device, but a conscious witness that adds its own point of view to the story.

Uppercase Print is inspired by a real event from 1981, and was nominated for the Best Feature Film award at IndieLisboa Independent Film festival in Portugal and at the Transilvania International Film Festival.

Malmkrog Discussion - Seattle Romanian Film Festival

ROMANIAN FILM FEST is still going strong! Check out this Zoom Q&A for Malmkrog, ft. film critic Monica Filimon, author of Cristi Puiu: Ineffable Experiences of the Profane World. GET TICKETS: http://bit.ly/rffs2020malmkrog

ABOUT MALMKROG:
Cristi Puiu’s most recent film is a three-in-one project: it is an adaptation of Vladimir Solovyov’s Three Conversations, a period drama beautifully recreating the turn of the twentieth century, and a philosophical symposium. Divided into 6 parts—one for each protagonist—this study of the well-mannered, yet intellectually fierce and, at times, condescending, theoretical debates, present a “slice of life” that froze in its eternal futility.

Only years before WWI, in an aristocratic manor somewhere in Transylvania, the wealthy businessman Edouard, the landowner Nikolai, the young and naïve Olga, the mature and ironic Madeleine, Ingrida—the wife of a Russian general—and the butler Istvan exchange ideas on war and peace, good and evil, religion, identity, and politics.

Malmkrog is a grand feast for the eye as it is for the mind: the abundance of visual details is matched by the dialogue packed with hard concepts. Winner of the Encounters Award for the Best Director at Berlin Film Festival, Cristi Puiu declared that his film is “prophetic.”

💞 A Letter from NWFF's Executive Director: https://mailchi.mp/nwfilmforum/annual-fund-letter-from-vivian-november-995308

2020 is a year where structures of systemic inequality have been revealed, thus illuminating pathways towards authentic change. Turbulent personal and social transformations have galvanized a broad constituency of allies and alliances, working together in ways never seen before. Chaos has created space for moments of pause, which in turn has reminded us of the human interactions and spiritual safe havens which add so much value to our lives.

Throwaway Style: An Interview With Crane City's Gary Campbell

NEWCOMER is screening now via NWFF!: https://bit.ly/nwffnewcomer

Viewers can also catch a convo with filmmaker Gary Campbell on Tuesday night during our weekly GET TOGETHER meetup: bit.ly/thegettogetheronline

Says KEXP: "NEWCOMER stretches the idea of the concert film to an artistic extreme. Its performances are sub-minute snippets artfully arranged to resemble something like a field recording of Seattle’s rap scene. The film, compiled from sets taking place between 2017 and February of this year, is about the moments we experience – as lovers of live performance – just as much as the performances themselves. It’s about Khris P pouring Rainier into a Solo cup while he raps; bodies packed into regional landmark ETC Tacoma; Sassyblack improvising a song urging concertgoers to buy her merch; the delightfully awkward dance moves of white people in KEXP’s Gathering Space with Kevin Cole in the DJ booth working the Afternoon Show."

FISCAL SPONSEE SHOUT-OUT! For Since I Been Down directed by none other than Gilda Shepherd:

What's better than a Sunday afternoon sipping coffee while cuddled up on the couch?

A Sunday spent listening to Director Gilda Sheppard, Distinguished Professor Emerita, University of CA, Santa Cruz @AngelaDavis, King
County (WA) Prosecutor Dan Satterberg, and Executive Director of Abolitionist Law Center Robert Holbrook discuss how we can support all children through restorative and transformational
justice. Join DOC NYC on Facebook LIVE at 12pm PST/3pm EST and get involved in the conversation!

ABOUT SINCE I BEEN DOWN:
Since I Been Down explores the complicated balance and tensions between violent crime, punishment, justice, activism, and compassion. The documentary invites viewers to take an in-depth look at incarcerated men and women, in order to better understand processes of their transformations and their ultimate role, as models for all of us on being human.

The documentary follows men and women in Washington State prisons, incarcerated between 13 and 25 years of age for violent crimes, and who are remarkably turning their lives around and creating social justice programs from within prison in spite of the controls of public life.

For all my Pacific NW filmmaker friends who are stuck indoors due to the newest entry to September’s bingo card (“Massive Smoke Plume”), I can offer 45 minutes of pure entertainment from 1938, "As the Earth Turns". (I scored and produced). Sit back, turn up the volume, and get ready for "Dr. No" meets "Flash Gordon" meets "Things to Come". The director was 20-years-old when he made this with his family and Franklin HS friends. What's really wild, is some of the Amazon reviews say the films a "fake". I wish I could make something this authentic. See the website for the backstory. ​ This film was at NWFF last year, too! "One of the most exciting discoveries in the archival offerings of Seattle International Film Festival...This is a festival must-see for fans of classic film. It’s a marvelous discovery." Seattle International Film Festival "Had Steven Spielberg been a 16-millimeter camera-toting teen in the 1930s, his home movies might have looked like “As the Earth Turns.” Michael Rechtshaffen, LA Times " The musical score...beautifully complements the film and simultaneously sounds modern and retro” Oddurbt.com "As the Earth Turns is rather beautifully filmed, with the director showing a genuine eye for framing and decent camerawork, while no corners seem to be cut to bring the story to life on a budget. And couple all of that with the film's very mature pacifist message while the world was actually on the brink of war, and you got yourself a pretty remarkable movie ..." Mike Haberfelner, searchmytrash.com Amazon: (Free on Prime) https://www.amazon.com/As-Earth-Turns-Barbara-Berger/dp/B088P7TH37 https://www.astheearthturns.com/ Short intro to the film: https://youtu.be/WBUAURRDBbI Feel free to leave a review - it really helps the film!
"As the Earth Turns" thanks Political Edge Film Festival 2020 for our 122nd festival selection! (Including NWFF Local Sightings in 2019!) It has been a tremendous ride, including a 7-day theatrical run in LA, and even entering the Oscars! (to get more eyes on it). The film is currently available on Amazon and is coming to Turner Classic Movies in the fall. If you have any questions, please let me know. I have learned a few tricks on FilmFreeway. I am producer and composer for this silent film (I own the film-estate) and am also working on a biopic and a doc about Richard Lyford, a 20-year-old filmmaker who made this never-released film in 1938. Lyford went on to work for Disney, and direct an Academy Award-winning documentary. (Note: this film is not a similarly named film from 1934) There are a number of interviews and reviews on the website. It is a great film for filmmakers to see. He did this will a zero budget, in Seattle. It is a testament to indie filmmaking. If you do watch it on Amazon, please leave a review. Thanks!

It’s amazing how much you dedicate yourselves to the love of cinema. I’ve been getting more into independent cinema and I’d love to recommend a film for you. I saw a premiere screening of the film Chief Zabu and it was a satirical gem. Following Ben Sydney (Allen Garfield) as he tries to benefit off a UN deal with the help of his friend Sammy Brooks (Zack Norman), the film becomes a well-paced story about the spontaneous nature of business and politics interacting. The actors do a great job of making their characters seem otherworldly while also realistic, and it’s amazing how the creators were able to turn a lost 80s film into a modern commentary on the world today. I loved Chief Zabu and can’t wait till it gets to VOD platforms August 8th! Feel free to tell me what you thought of it when you see it!
Hey, I represent a firm and associate podcast and we would be interested in hearing about your experience in what is being referred to as the "Capital Hill Autonomous Zone". There is likely compensation that you can receive for suffering inflected on your business, including both direct or indirect cause of the protesters or members of terrorist group antifa. I would be interested to gather your testimony of your experience in that area. Best wishes
