Oscar's Everyone Day

Sunday 23rd June 2024
In 2021 Oscar the Grouch proposed one day each year where "we unite as a community and EVERYONE records an activity of some sort - a dog walk, a run, a swim, a ride, ski if you want...".

Sadly we lost Oscar in March, so I'd like to dedicate Everyone Day to him. Thank you for the inspiration you gave us Oscar.

Hello to Jason Isaacs

Green Border - latest from Agnieszka Holland covering the refugees who were trapped in the forests between Poland and Belarus around the winter of 2021. Thematically similar to her earlier work Europa Europa I suppose. Like in that film there are moments of levity and humour amongst the horror and grimness. Shooting in black and white (we fade from the green of the forest in the first shot).

It’s the acts of ordinary people helping others in need that stand out, offset against the performative cruelty and actual brutality of nation states and soldiers. At the end the film reminds us how Ukrainians were welcomed with open arms in stark contrast to how the subjects of the film have been treated.

Highly recommended but not an easy watch

Ditto. Sis-in-law went to the actual farm on Monday for a look around.

@Fields Green border does definitely look up my street, thanks for pointing it out. Can't remember if I've seen Europa Europa by her, but it rings a bell.
