Image
Starting off with a sold out Premier on the 18th October, Mark Doneo's Silhouette turned out to be the surprise number one movie for the month of October at the Eden Cinemas, topping all other films, both foreign and domestic.

The feedback and enthusiasm shown by thousands of cinemagoers was definitely satisfying, most particularly for the cast and crew of Silhouette. Director and Producer Mark Doneo expressed his gratitude and stated that though he always knew that his movie would go down well with audiences, he can't help but feel humbled and grateful for the way people responded …

TwistTease - Maltese Iconography with a Twist

Landscapes and Local themes....

Usually, if it starts this way I am more or less no longer interested in proceeding...

In this case though, I found something different in the way the Artist gave significance to what has become 'a too normal a subject' amongst the local Art scene [since at least 10 to 15 years ago !]

The style depicted in TwistTease is just 'simply different' and on the opening night I noticed how often it was pointed out, and accentuated to be so by many of the viewers.





I pick one of the works and pop a Question to the Artist :
'so here is a Chapel in the country side ; what else is it ?'
She almost seems to hesitate initially, but proceeds :
' you see normally the chapel would be the main object in such a work, but is it in this case ? No, the vegetation in front of it seems to be the dominant factor... '

Vegetation a protagonist above a holy place ?







' yes, for me the vegetation personi…

Innocent Flesh - It could be your daughter, niece, sister or grand daughter..

Image
TAC Theatre presents Innocent Flesh

Kenyetta Lethridge’s heart-wrenching play, Innocent Flesh, hits the Maltese stage asking: are we doing enough to combat sex trafficking on our shores? The play was inspired by what she witnessed while working with young runaways on the streets, and tells of four girls who get offered everything in return for their innocence. The story takes the audience into the secret world of sex trafficking and a life of sex with strangers, rape, abortion, molestation and cries for help.

“It’s a must see for anyone who has a sister, a niece, a daughter or granddaughter,’  says Wesley Ellul, co-founder of TAC Theatre. “It is one of those stories that opens  your eyes wide, dispelling the belief that young girls get involved in this industry  because they want to.

“Innocent Flesh highlights the fact that the people who run human and sex trafficking operations prey on the weak and naïve, right when the victims have no other options. In Malta we are less likely to se…

Light in Dark - The collection of artworks by Jenny AK

Image
Jenny Asta Katarina Darmanin (nee Malmberg) was born in Ostersund, a city in the north of Sweden in 1983. She works predominantly in acrylic on canvas and is inspired by nature - in particular human anatomy as well as animal forms. Her grandfather painted Swedish landscapes in oil while her mother, Lena, followed in her father's footsteps and has been painting in watercolor for several decades. This led Jenny and her two brothers to be encouraged to paint from their early childhood - and ultimately for her to choose to study Art at Racklöfska college in Järpen for 3 years. JennyAK has been painting portraits and landscapes for family and friends for the last 11 years. During this time she has developed a passion for strong and vibrant colors as well as bold contrast. She lives most of the year in Malta but works on her art during her travels around the world.



JennyAK has entitled her exhibition 'Light in Dark' - a hommage to Caravaggio's chiaroscuro technique that insp…

Vampires - Chris & Moira's latest single

Image
Flight 170 was a most appropriate name for Chris & Moira to pick for their last single. Released last May, the song marked the band’s return after a 5-year hiatus and, while the title is actually never mentioned in the lyrics, the song itself did play a pivotal role in the way the band’s presence within the local scene has taken off once again. That however, was last May, and Chris & Moira are now back with a brand new single, Vampires, as well as a rather interesting music video to accompany it.

And just as Flight 170 wasn’t really about flying, Vampires has nothing to do with blood-sucking creatures; it also never shows up in the song’s lyrics so, you may be asking, what’s it all about exactly?  “It’s really all wrapped up in the expression of the song”  Moira explains. “There’s an intensity in the ‘story’ that the verses are portraying and the meaning lies between the lines, its very imaginative…..its also the way that the vocals are projected. It is all about the good side…
