Bright Star


Check out my review of Bright Star, Jane Campion's new film, over at the Auteurs Notebook. Hopefully I'll be posting more writing on Campion here at What Is This Light sometime very soon. Hopefully about In the Cut. Have you seen this thing?! A lot to talk about.

Hi Martha,
Would love to chat with you about a film in the upcoming SFFF, THE HERETICS, which opened at MOMA recently. THE HERETICS chronicles the rise of the feminist art magazine HERESIES in the 1970's. I think it would fit in nicely with your other blog work.

Let me know if you are interested!
