The Dark Maidens directed by Yakumo Seiji

The Dark Maidens directed by Yakumo Seiji

Review by Morgane Chinal-Dargent

The Dark Maidens seems like a nice distraction on the face of things with few substance. However, the film shows itself to be an intelligent mediation self-aware in its execution.

My Falling Down House by Jayne Joso

My Falling Down House by Jayne Joso

Review by Alice French

My Falling Down House provides a welcome escape from the everyday stress of living in modern society. It is a reminder of the basic importance of understanding one’s self in a world where we are constantly bombarded with virtual versions of others.

Japanese Girls Never Die directed by Matsui Daigo

Japanese Girls Never Die directed by Matsui Daigo

Review by Morgane Chinal-Dargent

Japanese Girls Never Die shows us two worlds, unable to communicate with one another and to fulfil the unrealistic and outdated expectations set of the society where the gender roles are shown as hugely unbalanced.
