“Is it fair to compare/contrast a 109 minute performance by Viola Davis against a 9 minute performance by S. Epatha Merkerson? Oh, yes . . . Davis and Merkerson share twin relevance in a fest [Tribeca] that keeps proving year after year that shorts can be just as original, jarring and substantive as feature films.”

Video: Monster

A young boy discovers the stone head of an ancient black English king buried in the Dartmoor countryside. Throughout his childhood he idolises the king, the discovery comes to define his whole identity. But as an adult he comes to realise that his recollection of the head and the king are false memories.

TV-Tipset: Who is America?

TV-Tipset: Who is America?

Sacha Baren-Cohens nya tv-serie Who is America? har blivit omtalad redan innan det första avsnittet sänts och det är lätt att förstå varför. Det handlar om lika träffsäker som avslöjande komik som gränsar till journalistik och politiker, lobbyister och makthavare avslöjas, skoningslöst.

I sina olika påhittade roller söker Sasha Baren-Cohen upp politiker och markhavare och presenterar den ena smått vansinniga iden efter den andra. Det som är skrämmande är att han får med sig påfallande många på sina ideér och projekt. I det första avsnittet framträder flera republikanska politiker och backar upp ett projekt dom ska beväpna skolbarn från 16 års ålder ända ned till fyraåringar. På fullt allvar hakar vapenlobbyn på en och av dess företrädare tittar in i kameran och föreslår att fyraåringar ska utbildas för att kunna hantera en granatkastare.

Avtrubbade

De läser innantill och berättar att barn är känslomässigt avtrubbade så de kommer utan minsta tvekan att skjuta en brottsling. Flera av avsnitten är så absurda, så vansinnigt skruvade att det är lätt att tro att allt bara är påhitt, alla medverkande, men så är inte fallet. Här ställer sig folkvalda politiker bakom en beväpning av amerikanska barn, uppbackade av en vapenlobby som kan tänka sig att sätta automatvapen i händerna på förskolebarn – på riktigt.

Video: Maori Metal

Roughly 3% of people living in New Zealand can speak its native language. Alien Weaponry, a local metal band, wants to save it. The following film contains heavy metal. Viewer discretion is advised.

Welcome to Aotearoa, the land of the long white cloud. In a particularly pastoral section of the North Island lives the De Jong family. The youngest of whom formed the band “Alien Weaponry” back when they were 8 and 10 years old. Their blend of metal, traditional Maori language, history, and a long-standing beef with the system just debuted as number one on the music charts in New Zealand.

Hail the new wave of destruction.
