TFF 37 Mini Review: Chico and Rita, Spain-Cuba, 2010, 96m

Rita sings at a club

Chico and Rita is an animated story of a talented Cuban jazz pianist named Chico and the love of his life, the talented singer Rita.  They chase each other across the Americas and across the decades, overcoming personal and political barriers to their marital bliss.  The director went to significant effort to stylistically match the period in geography, dress, and music.  The movie’s soundtrack is filled out by performers such as  Dizzy Gillespie and Charlie Parker.

Practical Santa Monica Car

Wednesday, September 8, 2010 

Seems to be a real mil unit or model thereof, up-armored looking windows but the unarmored coily cable to the turret looks dubious. I bet people reflexively yield.

Fresh Raspberries

Monday, June 21, 2010 

The raspberries in the yard are fruiting. A few have turned ripe ahead of the rest, but it looks like it will be a pretty good harvest this season, if we’re home enough to pick them.

Miscreants of Taliwood Free Tonight

Wednesday, February 24, 2010 

Carolyn and I saw the Miscreants of Taliwood at the Telluride Film Festival last September and had an opportunity to talk with the director, George Gittoes. We felt the movie was an important record and George an important resource for the people we work with in DC and arranged to have him come for a screening.

Miscreants is the only western film by the only western observer in the Tribal region of Pakistan along the Afghan border during the tumultuous period starting with the siege of the Red Mosque/Lal Masjid in June of 2007 and including the assassination of Benazir Bhutto.

This is a unique document, the sole direct, ground-level view of the geographic heart of Taliban ideology and a core operations center for Al Qaeda. Further, the opportunity to speak with Gittoes is particularly exceptional as his two years in the region were marked by extraordinary encounters that he was unable to incorporate into his documentary because “when people are pointing guns at you, taking out your camera gets you killed.”

We are screening it tonight, Wednesday, February 24th at 8pm at the Letelier Theater at 3251 Prospect Street, NW (upper courtyard – above Café Milano) Wash, DC 20007 202-338-5835. Admission is free. A parking garage is located between Café Milano and Café Peacock.

There will be a Q & A with George Gittoes immediately following the screening.
