I was excited to watch this documentary advertised on Instagram page of nowness. The name of this film is Disciples. With the recent surge in right-wing politics, it was only a matter of time when the term “Skinhead” would make it way on national headlines. I’m a fan of hardcore punk, black metal, experimental metal and grindcore, etc. There exist skinheads in the confines of … Continue reading Lights, Camera & Sound: Disciples, a short film about the Malaysian Skinhead culture

Tarkovsky settled for this notion, nothing more. Well Tarkovsky, the 21st … Continue reading Lights, Camera & Sound: Post Cinema Discussion II (Digital Cinema)
