Jean Luc Godard’s Une Femme Est Une Femme

"Are you going with him or me?"
"With whoever does the most extraordinary thing."

(Go to 6:14) So funny! So Godard. As much as I like and appreciate Breathless, Une Femme is one of my sentimental Godard favorites right next to Vivre Sa Vie. Absent are the usual shrouds of political and social commentary he includes in films like Les Carabiners. Instead there is a sugary satire of love, marriage, and American Hollywood musicals.

ROBIN HAMMOND - Condemned

Condemned documents the mental health impacts of crises in Africa – the trauma of mass rape, the grief of death in war, the insecurity of displacement. It illustrates what happens to the most vulnerable when governments implode and health systems collapse.
The mentally disabled in African countries in crisis are denied the opportunity to speak for themselves. Condemned gives them a voice.
Photojournalist Robin Hammond travels to South Sudan, Uganda, Somalia, the Democratic Republic of Congo, and northern Kenya for this project and appeals in this short film for support to continue the work to West Africa.
