Rocks in My Pockets is an animated movie for adults that poses the question, “How do you stay sane in this crazy world?”  While this particular line of thinking is nothing new, the film, funded by over 800 Kickstarter contributions, searches for answers via five women and their personal battles with depression and suicide. Creator Signe Baumane, a Latvian-born, New York-based artist, uses both hand-drawn and painted animation paired ... Read More
The Source is a fascinating new interview series designed and executed by celebrated artist Doug Aitken. Aitken artfully presents intimate and revealing interviews that give the audience a new lens through which to view the creative artists we are so familiar seeing, bringing attention to the lesser-seen process of creativity. I first heard about the project at the Sundance Film festival, which is part of the New Frontier program. At Sundance, The installation ... Read More
It's that time of year again! The 2014 Sundance Film Festival is underway. This year, there is a short but mighty list of female directors presenting new and exciting work.

A stand-out, refreshingly  unpredictable short that captures the innocence and heartache of adolescence. The film expertly ... Read More
  This week the New York Film Academy blog released a study on gender inequality in the film industry, presenting some truly dire statistics about women both in front of and behind the camera. The data is drawn from the top 500 movies of the past five years and comes in the form of a series of infographics that showcase just how unbalanced the industry really is. First there’s the familiar information: women are much more likely than men to be shown ... Read More

The First Time, written and directed by Jonathan Kasdan (In the Land of Women, Californication), stars Dylan O’Brien (MTV’s Teen Wolf), Britt Robertson, and Victoria Justice (Nickelodeon’s Victorious). The Sundance Film Festival hit is meant to be a more realistic take on a teenage love story, and it does a good job of capturing the awkwardness and stress that a lot of us often experienced as teenagers.  The sweet and earnest Dave ...

Let’s be real here. Reality TV, though lucrative for TV networks, usually doesn’t have a lot to offer the general public, other than something to mindlessly run in front of our eyeballs while we try to forget that today happened. But hark! A beam of intelligent, inspiring reality TV is shining through the mass of "People With Lots of Babies" shows!Sundance Channel’s Push Girls documents the life of best friends Tiphani, Auti, Angela, and Mia. ...

“I think most people haven’t seen sexy in a wheelchair” –Mia  The Sundance Channel’s new series, Push Girls, documents the lives of four friends living in Hollywood--Angela, Auti, Tiphany, and Mia.

The Sundance Channel must have a degree in making educational yet totally captivating shows, unlike most enriching television which lulls me to premature slumber. Instead Sundance pumps out series like Big Ideas for a Small Planet and Green Porno with Isabella Rosellini, which are hysterical and make me feel a little bit smarter. It's almost like I forgot I was learning about insect mating rituals and environmental engineering!  In its eternal quest to be one ... Read More
