The ultimate female innovators in film Věra Chytilová was one of the most vibrantly playful, radically subversive female filmmakers cinema has seen. In tribute to the Czech New Wave director, who died in March, we're screening her '60s masterpiece Daisies – about two girls who embark on a trail of mayhem after deciding the world's gone bad – on Sunday with Hackney Picturehouse and the Czech Centre London (ticket details below). With Chytilová gone, it's far from all bad news. Unsettling, idiosyncratic and darkly witty, Brit director Joanna Hogg's latest film Exhibition is set in a stark modernist house and stars Viv Albertine of punk band The Slits and conceptual artist Liam Gillick as a couple in relationship crisis who are selling their home. A foul-mouthed stand-up comedian (Jenny Slate) who doesn't hesitate to use her intimate life problems as on-stage material finds herself knocked up from a one-night stand in this Sundance hit from director Gillian Robespierre.
Věra Chytilová Early life and education Chytilová was born in Ostrava, Czechoslovakia on 2 February 1929. She had a strict Catholic upbringing, which would later come to influence many of the moral questions presented in her films. While attending college, Chytilová initially studied philosophy and architecture, but abandoned these fields. She then worked as a draftsman, fashion model and as a photo re-toucher before working as a clapper girl for the Barrandov Film Studios in Prague. She then sought a recommendation from Barrandov Film Studios to study film production, but was denied. Career Upon graduation from FAMU both of Chytilová's short films had a theoretical release throughout Czechoslovakia. In 1976, due to the low cinema attendance Chytilová was approached by the government to begin directing films through one of the state run production companies, Short Film Studios.

Creative bricolage promotes famous fashion brands | Creativity D&AD Yellow Pencil winning art director Mat Maitland recently collaborated with creative studio Not To Scale on this eye-catching campaign for fashion and luxury specialist AR New York. The 'Electric Jungle' concept features six evocative films, all of which are composed of numerous elements, brought together with a bricolage technique and stamped with Maitland's signature illustrative style. We chatted with the art director to find out more. How did the brief come about? The concept of the characters going on a journey into a surreal dreamworld, in this case a colourful consumer dream, was tailored around my collage style, which is why I was approached by AR in New York. What elements did the brief include? The brief was to introduce our model in-flight in the real world at the start of each piece, then transport them into the collage world and then back to the real world so this involved a set build and green screen shoot. Talk us through your design approach to the project.

How Cinematographer Hoyte Van Hoytema Made 'Her' Beautiful It seems as though people can't stop talking about Spike Jonze's newest movie Her -- and rightfully so. The film's story overflows with a certain humanity and honesty that may be expected from Jonze, but not as much from a contemporary love story. With such a great narrative, the visual storytelling should certainly echo its sentiments -- a task given to cinematographer Hoyte Van Hoytema, who has worked on films such as Let the Right One In, The Fighter, and Tinker Tailer Soldier Spy. In an in-depth piece, the International Cinematographers Guild plunges head first into the beautifully lonely world of Her and asks Van Hoytema how he built it. First, here's the trailer for the film: Creating the world of Her, meant creating something that resonated with the worlds inside protagonist Theodore Twombly's mind and heart.
