I hear you; it’s been six months and here I am, posting summer holiday photos.
Well, you’re right.
It seems like I can’t manage two jobs, a Master’s degree and this blog.
But I can tell you one thing for sure. If you enjoy remote islands, relaxing in the shade of trees and wandering in the most beautiful Chora that I have ever seen, then Folegandros is the place to be.
I hope we’ll talk again soon, before my next trip!
A couple of months ago (before all hell broke loose and I almost forgot that I’m supposed to be a blogger of some sort), I went to the cinema and watched Asghar Farhadi’s Salesman. I remember it being a cold, winter night, and me leaving the building in awe, thinking how much people are missing when they keep on watching meaningless blockbusters. Then the Oscars came and, even if I consider their results to be highly predictable, I was really happy that a great film won an award (the best foreign language film one, in case you were wondering) so that it gained some of the popularity it deserved.
Thursday, February 23d at 18h, opening night!

We watched I, Daniel Blake, a 2016 British-French production, on New Year’s Eve afternoon. It was awarded in various international film festivals (e.g. Cannes Film Festival, Stockholm International Film Festival, San Sebastián International Film Festival) and a couple nominations are still pending (for example the British Independent Film Awards). We couldn’t have chosen a better way to end 2016 cinema-wise…
I watched The Red Turtle a few days before 2016 ended (and still this wasn’t the last film that I watched, since we also went to “I, Daniel Blake” on New Year’s Eve, but we’ll talk about that another time). It was sweetjaneeyre who advised me to go and I’m more than thankful to her for doing so!
A co-production of Studio Ghibli, Wild Bunch and Why Not Productions, this French-Belgian-Japanese animation by Dutch-British director Michael Dudok de Wit was awarded the Prix spécial Un Certain Regard, at the Cannes’ Festival 2016. It doesn’t come as a shock since this film, multicultural as it is, can “speak” in a universal language, without saying a word.
