Bottle by Kirsten Lepore Kirsten Lepore must be very much in demand. She just has to be. She has the most perfectly attuned sensibilities I have yet seen in a short filmmaker towards what is current in culture. Her animations, a mix of twee and handicraft enveloped in bittersweet wrappers, are amazing artifacts; clever and nostalgic in mood, precious and handcrafted in design—these films celebrate life, but never far from that sentiment is the specter of loss. The Dreadful Story of Pauline and the Matches by Heinrich Hoffmann Mamma and Nurse went out one day, And left Pauline alone at play; Around the room she gayly sprung, Clapp'd her hands, and danced, and sung., Now, on the table close at hand, A box of matches chanced to stand, And kind Mamma and Nurse had told her, That if she touched them they would scold her; But Pauline said, "Oh, what a pity! For, when they burn, it is so pretty; They crackle so, and spit, and flame; And Mamma often burns the same. I'll just light a match or two As I have often seen my mother do." When Minz and Maunz, the pussy-cats, heard this They held up their paws and began to hiss. - "Meow!!"

The Candidate I don’t say the following words lightly: the opening scene of David Karlak’s The Candidate is perfect. Absolutely perfect. We watch as our lead character, Burton Grunzer, disdainfully observes his work nemesis, Whitman Hayes, fumbling to set up for a corporate presentation. Now, that in itself may not sound engaging, but Karlak’s handling of it—his polished camera moves, the virtuosic editing, the driving music, all of which is underscored by actor Tom Gulager’s superlatively droll, Patrick Bateman-esque voice over—is pure cinematic magic.

Madagascar by Bastien Dubois Madagascar is a film I first mentioned back in July with the review of the Fluxus Online Film Fest, and which has steadily grown on me. It’s a film that has what can be seen as a pretty big flaw, but the things it does well are so extraordinary I want to give the film the highlighting it deserves. I sincerely doubt animator Bastien Dubois will mind my reticence in giving Madagascar its due since everyone else has been bending over backwards to do so. The film is completing quite the prodigious festival run: playing Sundance, winning at Ottawa, winning at Annecy.

The Most Amazing Tattoo Artists in Berlin I got sucked into the tattoo world via stick n poke (read: prison tat) of a very unintentionally abstract and barely identifiable jellyfish. Who would have guessed that this regrettable arrangement of dots poked into my arm (with an unsanitary sewing needle and pen-ink) by a strange boy in our inebriated stupor would have lead me into the world of what is now one of my favourite forms of art: tattoos. We all have different approaches to tattoos—some of us sit on an idea or design for months, even years before getting it permanently engraved into our bodies, and some of us (myself included) have been known to get inked on impulse. Acquiring a collection of tattoos on your body has become a prominent form of self-expression, especially in the art and fashion world, and it came as no surprise that we found many tattoo artists taking root in Berlin, rendering a whole spectrum of life to their art and etching stories into blank canvases of skin.

how german orchestra auditions work — ROB KNOPPER Candidate selection In German orchestras there are generally no audition commissions/panels comprising a range of relevant instrumentalists. The decision on which applicants are to be invited to the audition is taken purely by the section in question. Assuming an orchestra receives a good number of applications for a vacancy, it is normally decided to hold both a preliminary and a main audition.
