Jadav Payeng – SOUL OF THE FOREST
Way back in 1953, French author Jean Giono wrote the epic tale The Man Who Planted Trees. It seemed so real that readers thought the central character, Elzeard Bouffier, was actually a living individual until the author clarified that he had created the person only to make his readers fall in love with trees. More than 30 years ago, a teenager named Jadav "Molai" Payeng began burying seeds along a barren sandbar near his birthplace in northern...

Canadian director Shawney Cohen's film The Manor (2013) screened at the 16th Thessaloniki Documentary Film Festival last week.
This award winning doc depicts the modern American family at its best, and worst. This is the story of Shawney Cohen's paradoxically functional family in all its dis-function. Shawney is a struggling filmmaker balancing between the world of film and his family run strip club. He is the designated manager of a strip club his father bought thirty years ago when he...

Together with fellow director/producer Charlie Siskel, Maloof set about making sense of the late street photographer's life and work, ultimately launching her name among the pantheon of outsider artists. It's hard to imagine a less likely candidate for...

France's ruling elite has staged its share of psychodrama, but leave it to Bertrand Tavernier‘s new film The French Minister to replay it as farce. Adapted from the bestselling graphic novel Quai D’Orsay – Chroniques Diplomatiques, the film peeps behind the chaotic scenes at the Foreign Affairs Ministry and finds much to burlesque.
For starters, there's Foreign Affairs Minister Alexandre Taillard de Worms, an eccentric blue blood who's the very beacon of French E...

Set on a rural moshava in 1978, the film opens as a young mother, Michal (Michal Varshai), struggles to handle her willful daughter, seven-year-old Maya (Bar Minali). Ma...
