SxSW 2015 Film Notes

Had to be a bit strategic this year with how I fit everything into the schedule; frontloaded the interactive program considering there was some work-related stuff and had to consider a few colleagues who joined me, then catching up on all the films in the second half of the festival once I had some time to myself. By then, it was already challenging trying to start and fit a lot of the films in and had to really let go of a few I really wanted to check out - hopefully they'll get showings or distribution locally or online.

Deep Web

Sad tale of the arrest of the guy behind the Silk Road - similar in vein to the Internet's Own Boy, but probably not as noble...

Twinsters

Cute recount of a American-Korean girl finding and connecting with her separated-at-birth twin sister. Nice fluff piece, and great for the younger generation.

Barge

Following the nuances and tales of a barge crew - beautifully shot and extremely intimate.

All Things Must Pass (AKA the Tower Records Documentary)

Trailer isn't available - solid recount of the rise and fall of Tower Records. Can see where Australia's JB Hi-Fi came from...

For the Record

Stenotyping. That is all.

Rolling Papers

Following the legalisation of marijuana in Colorado, The Denver Post launches the first editor dedicated to the subject matter.

Moving In

Brilliant short, in a "Steve-Buscemi-in-Billy-Madison" sorta way.

James Nares – Street

The full film is 61 minutes long of high fps bliss

Claude Speeed – Some Other Guy

Stuart Turner, aka Claude Speee, paired his ominous and droney track Some Other Guy with Peter Marsden's explorations of New York after dark. Result below - I recommend headphones and a large screen.

Takeshi Terauchi And Bunnys – Seichô Takeuchi Bushi

Don't even ask how I got onto this. Just appreciate and be amazed by it.

All thirty minutes of it you impatient prick.

Finding Vivian Maier

A documentary about a guy who pieces together Vivian Maier's story after uncovering tens of thousands of her amazing photo negatives of candid street life that never got to see the light of day until after she passed away.

A lot of the photos featured in the movie were brilliant.
