The Show Must Go On

March 22nd, 2020

Here’s the weird thing about change: most of the time, we don’t notice it happening until it’s already happened. Smartphones are an omnipresent feature of life, and the fact is that if you don’t have one, you’re operating at a fairly huge disadvantage. Yet it wasn’t that long ago that they were looked at as frivolous and hardly necessary. Once in a while though, change kicks us in the teeth. Our good friend the coronavirus has seen to that, and right now things are changing very quickly. As I write this, I see that there’s very serious talk from staunch conservatives about sending... Read More

Cinema Latino

March 26th, 2019

Insomnia and I have been bitter sisters for a long time now. She knows my secrets and reminds me of them, over and over and over during the tiny hours when all sensible and peaceable people should be sound asleep. I admit that some of this is my own fault. My two favorite cocktails war it out; Sudafed and caffeine team up against melatonin and merlot. Eventually I decide that the drugs aren’t making me feel better, they’re just making me feel a different kind of bad. Then it’s back to just me and Insomnia in a monogamous, monotonous relationship. I lie awake and fester in my thoughts, or... Read More

The Experience of Experimental Cinema; The Unseen Festival: September 1 – 30

September 19th, 2018

Ever since entering the Film Studies program at CU Boulder, I have become privy to how complex and marvelous cinema is. It has also made me realize that film has more to offer than what is commercially popular. There are hundreds upon hundreds of brilliant films which go unrecognized, mostly owing to lack of exposure. However, there are programs which strive to remedy this. One of these is the Unseen Festival, which will take place in Boulder and Denver over a thirty-day period. The Unseen Festival is focused mostly on experimental films, many of which are not shown elsewhere. In attempting to... Read More

Denver 48-Hour Film Project

Denver 48-Hour Film Project

“The noble Brutus hath told you Caesar was ambitious. If it were so, it was a grievous fault. And grievously hath Caesar answered it” I occasionally break up the monotony of my paralyzing self-doubt by going on a rampage of unfounded confidence that I possess the skills to fulfill my delirious ambition. Such was my fantasy of participating this year in the Denver 48-Hour Film Project, a competition-cum-art-festival-cum-orgy of self-flagellation where participants create 100% of a movie in a single weekend. When cold sober, in the harsh light of morning, of course it’s ridiculous to make an... Read More

A Hike & a Movie

April 7th, 2018

So, you’ve had a beautiful day of hiking, you’re ready to relax, but it’s still too nice out to go home and sit in your cave – what to do? How about going to one of the many outdoor movies in the Denver area this season! The 88 Drive-In is open now, and for just $8 you can see all three movies. This weekend they are playing Tomb Raider, Annihilation, and Game Night. We don’t have to tell you that it’s one of the last drive-ins in the country, so take the Subaru and a blanket and go! Recommended hike: Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge. Next month kicks off Film on the... Read More

Legendary Leader

October 7th, 2017

Last weekend I had the pleasure of attending the world premier of the documentary exploring marijuana’s use and evolution as a plant and industry, “The Legend of 420”. The film was produced and directed by Emmy and Academy Award-nominated, Peter Spirer, with Rugged Entertainment and XLRator Media. The premier in Denver, now the hub for hemp and marijuana movie premiers known as Hollyweed, was made possible by Amy Bourlon-Hilterbran, the founder and CEO of Millennium Grown Broadcast Network. Millennium Grown brought this premier to Denver, and contains online content about marijuana and hemp... Read More
