What’s On from Tim Rann

Wednesday, June 18th, 2008

Hi,

Been a rough week thus far, especially after a long day at the office yesterday.

Just watched Rudy and must run off to the park toss the football (American foosball) around.  Oh, only 7-8 more weeks til tailgating, slightly racist dancing mascots, whiskey and waffles, and of course stop and go (and stop and go and stop) intense American football action!  Cheers!

-Tim

TUE, 17/06
ARTIST SPECIAL
THE CLASH
The Clash were the band who made punk music real. Joe Strummer and his
colleagues explored and expanded musical boundaries. For seven years they
set the agenda for future generations of bands. Tonite we screen "Westway to
the World" – a excellent documentary by Don Letts: The only full,
unexpurgated story of one of Rock music's legendary acts…

WED, 18/06
GERMAN CINEMA
THE KEBAB CONNECTION
Have a good laugh with this comedy! In Hamburg, Ibrahim "Ibo" Secmez, of
Turkish descent, wants to direct the first German kung-fu movie. For now, he
makes commercials for his uncle's kebab restaurant. In the background are
three thugs in search of good tripe soup and a Capulet-Montegue feud between
the kebab joint and a Greek taverna across the street. (In German, with
English subtitles)

THU, 19/06
GERMAN CINEMA
DIE HIMMELSWIESE
„Diese Dokumentation ist ein Meisterwerk des Regisseurs Detlev F. Neufert.
Ein Film, der tief bewegt, aber auch zugleich mit einer Fröhlichkeit
ansteckt, die bisher beim Thema AIDS unbekannt war. Von Anfang bis Ende
folgt der Zuschauer gebannt dem dramatisch-positiven Wunder von 'Baan Gerda"
und den dem Tode geweihten Kindern, die dank medikamentöser Behandlung zu
einem neuen gesunden Leben in Liebe erwachen… (Wolfgang Petersen,
Regisseur, Los Angeles, USA). Only in German/ in Deutsch.

FRI, 20/06
Fete de la Music, from 6PM @ Meta House
KHMER ROCK, POP, HIP HOP with DJ CURLY
LIVE VIDEO of THOM THOM, Cambodia's Nirvana

SAT, 21/06
FOCUS CAMBODIA
ONE EVENING AFTER THE WAR
August 1992. Savannah, 28 years old, finds himself back in Phnom Penh after
four years on Cambodia's northern front, fighting the Khmer Rouge. Like the
rest of his generation, he's known only war since infancy, camps, hunger and
massacres. All he's got left now is his uncle, Sôn, as the rest of the
family was entirely annihilated by Pol Pot's regime. One evening, at the
dance bar where his war buddy Maly is working as bouncer, Savannah falls
prey to the charm of the beautiful Srey Poeuv, one of the bar girls, who,
from time to time, also serve the desires of the richest patrons. The two
young people from a sacrificed generation are soon to be victims to their
own passion.

SUN, 22/06
