The ALPINALE short film festival shows full length films too: for children, with the special assistance of Stefanie Seidel, a specialist in theatre and media pedagogics. A much needed assistance, as KAUWBOY (NL, 2012, director: Boudewijn Koole) is about life and death.

Stefanie Seidel asked the children to watch out for matches and what they symbolize … try it yourself, you’ll be surprised by the answers.

MAPS TO THE STARS , directed by David Cronenberg and written by Bruce Wagner, reminded me of NIGHTCRAWLER. It is to film business, what the latter is to news journalism – what a drama! Both films […]
Joel Kinnaman as RoboCop
Ok, I admit it … without beautiful and talented US-Swedish actor Joel Kinnaman (whom I discovered almost exactly one year ago) aka Charles Joel Norström, I’d not even bother about the film ROBOCOP, due February […]
