Rest in peace, respect is due: to both Jack Cardiff and J.G. Ballard. The former, the cinematographer for Powell And Pressburger, whose technicolor Black Narcissus work is a real mindblower, and the latter, whose spirit combined with life experience to form a worldview I can't quite relate to but nonetheless evoked a specific something of the twentieth century.

don't know if you are checking out the md-film fest but my friend has a film there. I can't be there so I thought I'd pass it along to someone who might.

"FEEDING TIME" will be part of the program "SHORTS: Return to the Planet of WTF Shorts" as part of the festival weekend.

The show times are:
Friday, May 8th at 5:00pm
Sunday, May 10th at 3:00pm

"FEEDING TIME" Dir. Nathan Maxwell Cann 13:30

"A grim, black-and-white depiction of a man and woman fighting a losing battle with hunger and madness, with horrific consequences. Their filthy, antiquated, and otherworldly environment reinforces both their dire circumstances and their gruesome behavior."
