GIRLS ON FILM CLUB #3

Anyone who reads this blog regularly will know that we’re big fans of the Birds Eye View girls. They always let us know about the great, interesting women in film events they put on, and lo and behold, they’ve hit us with another one. 

For those who don’t know, Birds Eye View run a monthly film club with the Shoreditch Sisters. The idea behind the club is to spotlight the work of women in film – they show films directed by women, and always follow the screening with a discussion/Q&A with a talented film industry woman. Cool idea right? So the latest offering is MJ Delany’s Powder Room – a brilliant, British comedy starring top UK talent Sheridan Smith, Jaime Winstone, Kate Nash, and Oona Castilla Chaplin. The film is based on the stage play When Women Wee scripted by Rachel Hirons – who will give a post-screening discussion at the event.

 Sam’s life is turned upside down on a big night out, and her story unravels within the grimy confines of a night-club toilet. When reunited with her old college friends, she is forced to re-evaluate, and constructs an elaborate façade in order to convince herself and her friends that she has it all. 

So make sure you’re around on August 4th at the Hoxton Hotel. Tickets are just £10.50 and include a glass of wine, and post-screening discussion with scriptwriter Rachel Hirons. It’s a great opportunity to ask Rachel about her creative process and adapting work from stage to screen. Grab your tickets here, and we’ll see you ladies down there! 

OUT OF ORDER - MOLLY MACINDOE

We love a gal who manages to reach her goals, whatever they may be. We also love recommendations, and word of mouth. Hence why Molly Macindoe and her book Our Of Order was brought to our attention (S Issue contributor Amii put us in touch - keep it in the family yo!) 

So it’s kind of a funny story. Molly dropped us round the book to review, but some whack person in the building said that they knew me and would pass it on. They didn’t. So whoever you are lady, we hope you’re enjoying it, cos it looks like a damn good read. Anyway, Molly reached her target of £16,000 on Kickstarter four days ago meaning that she can print 2,000 revised editions of Out Of Order - g’warn woman!

"With over 400 photographic images covering 77 different events from 1997 - 2006, this book is the culmination of a fourteen-year project that documents the free party and teknival scene from my own perspective. – At the moment it is the most comprehensive visual study of this subculture, which has continued to adapt and survive since the late 80s, outlasting other youth cultures such as the mods and rockers of the 60s and the punks of the 70s. These pictures depict the journey of both a culture and myself as an individual – from the derelict industrial estates of London to the fields and forests of Eastern Europe."

Keeping print alive is a huge part of our ethos, so it’s always great to see somebody else believing it’s still relevant. We’re super impressed and the book looks great Molly, so congrats. Read more about the project here.

Yesterday we checked out the Matisse Cut-Outs exhibition at the Tate Modern. And DAMN, it felt good to look at some art! Whenever we get into a creative rut, a gallery visit always gets us feeling rejuvenated again. The Parakeet and the Mermaid (above) was one of our faves, but the whole experience got us itching to collage ASAP. We even bought postcards…

Manchester based Adam Jones has contributed a totally fab shoot to the S Issue which we cannot wait to share with you. Well, we can’t wait to share the whole damn thing with you - it’s ALMOST done! However, in the mean time, he’s sent us over another amazing shoot - check out Night Owl above. We also thought we’d tell you a bit more about our contributor…

After studying at Fashion Image Making BA and Contemporary Fine Art MA, Adam continues to explore the world of fashion and art image making. Working in a variety of media and on a number of platforms, Adam explores concept in the most detailed and simplest forms. Not bound to a direct style, his work always delivers a dynamic and considered aesthetic. See more over at www.adamjonesphoto.net

Thanks Adam!

The Global Summit to End Sexual Violence in Conflict kicks off in London’s ExCel Centre today. Co-chaired by Angelina Jolie and William Hague, This is the largest gathering ever brought together on the subject with over 100 NGO’s and international partners taking part alongside 48 Foreign Ministers and over 600 government delegates from 113 countries.
We’ll be heading down over the next couple of days to catch up with the amazing Hannah Gabrielle More who directed Leija’s Story, which we posted a few weeks back. In the short film, they journey to Bosnia to uncover Leija’s heritage - she was born out of rape during the war and was brought to the UK by her adoptive parents.
