The Menu // 001

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: we’re fucking bored of social media. With everything being so transient on platforms like instagram, we thought that each month we’d collect and curate the things that have been making us laugh, dance, cry and think.

Study More Than Film (The Royal Ocean Film Society)

“Learn about ideas so that you can have your own.” This quick video illustrates the way that I love to think about the work that I make - take inspiration from outside of what you’re trying to produce, so that you don’t just regurgitate the same stories over and over again. Want to tell a story about a baker? Learn to make bread first.

Light bites

Nimic (dir. Yorgos Lanthimos) 

A short film as amusing as it is uncomfortable. Lanthimos is probably best known for how his films make your skin crawl while you laugh at the deadpan delivery of what seems like total nonsense, only to realise by the end of the film that you want to double or triple check that you’ve locked your doors and windows. Nimic embodies all of that in its 12 short minutes, telling a manic, surreal tale of identity theft.

Rough Translation: Liberté, Égalité and French Fries

“Following the story of residents of an immigrant neighborhood in Marseille, France who considered their local McDonalds to be a home of sorts, so when the owner tries to sell it, they take extreme measures to try and save it.” Honestly this episode really got me! Local and community politics tied very much to this particular neighbourhood in Marseille, playing out in a drama with a company that is arguably one of the most emblematic symbols of global capitalism to date.
