INSTANT DREAMS tells the story of a group of scientist who are trying to unravel the chemical formula of Polaroid and the Polaroid-users that eagerly await its rebirth. Each in their own way tries to keeps their instant dream alive.
Portrayal of a surgeon who feels stifled by Swedish bureaucracy and relocates to Ethiopia to practice medicine. In a small field hospital, with limited resources, he uses anything at hand to help the patients.
Set over one summer, the film follows precocious six-year-old Moonee as she courts mischief and adventure with her ragtag playmates and bonds with her rebellious but caring mother, all while living in the shadows of Disney World.
In a story depicted in oil painted animation, a young man comes to the last hometown of painter Vincent van Gogh to deliver the troubled artist's final letter and ends up investigating his final days there.
Being an animal lover, and vegan, it is incredibly inspiring!
'JANE': Four Stars (Out of Five)
A documentary biopic about the life and work of Jane Goodall. Goodall is a world famous primatologist, ethologist, anthropologist, vegetarian and animal rights activist, who challenged the male dominated science of her time, to revolutionize the world's understanding of humans relations to non-human animals, and nature, through her groundbreaking chimpanzee research. The film was written and directed by Brett Morgen, and it's received nearly unanimous positive reviews from critics, as well as some prestigious awards recognition too. Being a huge animal lover, the film was really interesting and inspiring to me.
The film takes place primarily in the 60s, when Goodall traveled to Gombe Stream National Park, in Tanzania, to study chimpanzees in the wild, and their social interactions with each other. Her findings revolutionized the way we view chimpanzees, other primates, and animals in general. They also challenged the male dominated studies on the subject of that time too. The story is told through old footage, that just became public, and through interviews with Goodall now herself.
Being an animal lover, and vegan, it is incredibly inspiring to see how positive Goodall was in the animal rights movement. She also (obviously) helped advance women's efforts and work in science. So the film is definitely inspiring in those ways too, and it's also just really interesting to watch. The footage of chimpanzees in the wild is always fascinating to view as well. It's a little slow-paced at times, when the primates aren't onscreen, but it's mostly a very interesting and educational documentary.
