The video “The Child,” by French disc jockey Alex Gopher, created by Antoine Bardou-Jacquet (H5), is one of the most incredible videos I have ever seen. The world is visualized in words…skylines, taxis, people, elevators, roads, buildings…everything.

I just came away from the most prolonged and intense filmic experience of my life at the Pacific Film Archive.

As a part of the African Film Festival, they first screened a short, Coffee Colored Children (Ngozi Onwurah, U.K., 1988). The film traces two siblings who navigate lives as mixed children of a […]

‘Twas the night before Christmas when Youki and Usree decided to do a bit of cross-continental liveblogging using Skype.
