All the best films as from April 5th:
Soon in theaters:
Barbie, by Greta Gerwig
Asteroid city, Wes Anderson
The Marvelous Mrs Maisel, season 5, as of April 14 on Prime Video
The Forum des images honors one of the most filmed cities in the history of cinema: Los Angeles.
An essential territory of the 7th art, the city of angels feeds multiple imaginations. A reservoir of dreams and fantasies, between violence and glamour, it is familiar to the moviegoer. But what do we know about the real city?
From April 12 to July 6, 80 films, 9 cinema classes, “pop” screenings and a photo exhibition constitute a temporal and geographical journey to the heart of its myths and the reality of its districts.
Accompanied by numerous guests, including filmmakers David Robert Mitchell and Laura Gabbert (City of Gold), Academy Museum Associate Director K.J. Relth-Miller, storyboarder Sylvain Despretz, and film course instructors, this rich program paints a contrasting and contemporary portrait of Los Angeles, a world city between desert and ocean.
ALL YOU WANT TO KNOW ABOUT FILMS & SERIES IN THEATERS & AT HOME
The Power, Raelle Tucker, Naomi Alderman, Claire Wilson, & Sarah Quintrell
The world of The Power is our world, but for one twist of nature.
Suddenly, and without warning, all teenage girls in the world develop the power to electrocute people at will. It’s hereditary, it’s inbuilt, and it can’t be taken away from them.
Coming alive to the thrill of pure power: the ability to hurt or even kill by releasing electrical jolts from their fingertips, they rapidly learn they can awaken the Power in older women. Soon enough nearly every woman in the world can do it.
And then everything is different.
They had the power. Who? The women!
If nothing and no one could constrain them anymore and if finally, their turn had come, in the four corners of the planet. If they were no longer afraid of being assaulted in the street, in the transport, or mistreated by their employer and if, in their turn, they took the power. What would they do with all these possibilities?
Would they have a serious and justified desire for revenge?
After seeing Annick Cojean‘s play, Une farouche liberté, with Ariane Ascaride and Philippine Pierre-Brossolette about Gisèle Halimi’s fights for justice, this series recently released on Prime Video came at the right time in my busy week of feminist content consumption.
And that’s good. With Toni Collette in the lead role of a female politician endlessly forced to justify everything to men of power, and the young women suddenly gifted with unlimited power that they can pass on, The Power is galvanizing.
What if God had a woman’s voice?
Don’t miss this series, the first three episodes currently available on Amazon Prime Video.
