Tenko (TV series) Tenko is a television drama, co-produced by the BBC and the ABC. A total of thirty episodes were produced over three series between 1981 and 1984, followed by a one-off special (which was twice the length of the other episodes), Tenko Reunion, in 1985. The series dealt with the experiences of British, Australian and Dutch women who were captured after the fall of Singapore in February 1942, after the Japanese invasion, and held in a Japanese internment camp on a Japanese-occupied island between Singapore and Australia. Tenko was created by Lavinia Warner after she had conducted research into the internment of nursing corps officer Margot Turner (1910–1993) for an edition of This Is Your Life and was convinced of the dramatic potential of the stories of women prisoners of the Japanese.[1] Aside from the first two episodes, set in Singapore, which were written by Paul Wheeler, the series was written by Jill Hyem and Anne Valery.

Bechdel Test Movie List '2016: Obama's America' – Will political documentary sway undecided voters? (+video) August may be the laziest month for Hollywood blockbusters, but it has become open season for little-films-that-can. And this year is no exception, with the political documentary “2016: Obama’s America,” pulling in more than $9 million to become the top grossing non-nature documentary of the year. Skip to next paragraph Recent posts Subscribe Today to the Monitor Click Here for your FREE 30 DAYS ofThe Christian Science MonitorWeekly Digital Edition The film, from conservative author Dinesh D’Souza, which began playing in theaters nationwide this past weekend and has gone viral online, is a slow – and selective – trip through Obama’s backstory. The documentary is currently screening in Tampa hotels hosting guests at the Republican National Convention, where its themes have been warmly embraced. The surprise success of the film suggests it is part of a “new normal” in US politics, says John Johannes, a professor of political science at Villanova University in Philadelphia. Mr.

Breakfast Interrupted | Man Made DIY | Crafts for Men | Keywords: art, kitchen, breakfast, video Nothing like enjoying a delicious meal just before it all goes crazy. On purpose. This super fun video, entitled "Breakfast Interrupted" by Bruton Stroube Studio is somewhat of an epic food fight video, sans the people throwing it. It's almost as if there was a mystical force pulling the table from above - and by "mystical," I mean a hydraulic pump going crazy. BSS | Breakfast Interrupted from Bruton Stroube Studios on Vimeo. Shot at 1000fps, each second of this short film captures in detail the way food behaves when it's not handled with care. So jealous of these guys! The video was actually created two years ago, so you may have seen it make the rounds already, but it's new to me, and I just couldn't help but share.

'The Looming Tower' Trailer Song - Meet Ruelle - The DishmasterThe Dishmaster What to Stream This Weekend: Movies by Actors Turned Directors Each week, Richard Brody picks a classic film, a modern film, an independent film, a foreign film, and a documentary for online viewing. “Young Lovers” Plenty of minor actors turned to directing Hollywood movies when the roles proved inadequate, but few major stars did so while their onscreen careers still flourished. The one who did so in the prime of the studio era to the greatest artistic effect was Ida Lupino, who formed an independent production company in the late forties and turned to directing by default, when a director she hired got sick during the shoot. The first film that she directed by design, “Young Lovers,” a.k.a. “Never Fear,” from 1949, is an intensely intimate melodrama about the life and the torments of an artist. Stream “Young Lovers” on Amazon. “Harlem Nights” It’s astounding and disappointing that Eddie Murphy has directed only one movie to date, the excellent and unusual “Harlem Nights,” from 1989. Stream “Harlem Nights” on Amazon, Vudu, and other services.

The movie industry as we know it today originated in the early 19th century through a series of technological developments: the creation of photography, the discovery of the illusion of motion by combining individual still images, and the study of human and animal locomotion. The history presented here begins at the culmination of these technological developments, where the idea of the motion picture as an entertainment industry first emerged. Since then, the industry has seen extraordinary transformations, some driven by the artistic visions of individual participants, some by commercial necessity, and still others by accident.
