All the must-see December Netflix films and tv series

All the must-see December Netflix films and tv series

Andrea Jean Varraud · 4 years ago · Art

As done last month, also for December, we shall hereby repeat our selection of the Netflix catalog 5 most anticipated releases.

Roma: is perhaps the most anticipated film of the month, but in general certainly of the year, surely thanks to the Golden Lion triumph at the 71st edition of the Venice festival. Alfonso Cuaron’s movie describes the life of a middle-class Mexican family but, more precisely, reports a nascent society in which wealth and poverty coexist in a symbiotic relationship, all endowed by a agonizing humanity. To strengthen Rome’s visual power the Mexican director uses a nostalgic black and white photography, as you can see from the trailer herebelow. The film, a great Netflix success, is the first entertainment giant’s movie having earned the Golden Lion award to be partially distributed in cinemas worldwide, it will be released in streaming on December 3.

Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle: the entirely Netflix produced movie based on the famous “The Jungle Book” is relayed as an amazing visual power product both for adults and children. I think we don’t need to spend many words on the plot: a boy grows in the forest bred by wolves. When humans threaten the jungle’s survival Mogwli will do all in his power to save his beloved animal friends. The film is directed by actor and director Andy Serkis, the protagonist is played by Rohan Chand, while the voices of the animals will be lent by the likes of Christian Bale, Benedict Cumberbatch and Cate Blanchet. Mogwli will be released on the digital platform on December 7th.

Dogs Of Berlin: is, after Dark, the second American platform’s German series having an extremely original content. The story unfolds around a famous football player’s murder on the eve of a ‘very important’ international match. It will be up to the two policemen in charge (interpreted by Fahri Yardim and Felix Kramer) to solve the mystery. They will investigate in full the Berlin underground life, from the Mafia to neo-nazi groups. The series, which immediately picked up very positive reviews, will land in Italy on the 7th of  December.

Springsteen on Broadway: The famous star striped singer is shown in a live performance like never before. We can see from our home’s comfort thanks to Netflix. In this special, edited by Thom Zimny, a long-time Springsteen partner, two of his last concerts are jointly packaged to transport us in a spiral of intimate emotions, especially for the Boss’s most avid fans. This musical special will be released on December 15th, a date which also marks the end of Springsteen’s replicas at the Walter Kerr Theater in New York. So Springstinists from all over the world, enjoy, the wait is short.

Parfum: the third German production is nothing more than a modern adaptation, obviously with some differences, of the homonymous novel by Patrick Suskind that in a few years has become a true Bestseller. The story is about a young man from the suburbs of Paris who, with a superhuman sense of smell, becomes the world’s most talented parfumist. Such privilege will however have a high price to pay. The story immersed in darkness, death, beauty and charm, has previously scored in a film, Perfume – Story of a murderer, but this time, as the trailer can already show, the story has been strongly reinterpreted to make it a definitely unique product with a very high potential. So we just have to wait for December 21st.

Artistic nudity and liberation in Lucie Nechanicka’s photos

Artistic nudity and liberation in Lucie Nechanicka’s photos

Tommaso Berra · 3 days ago · Photography

A form of freedom and self-assertion vis-à-vis a world of conventions and constraints, by photographing her own naked body artist Lucie Nechanicka wants to achieve this condition of personal and emotional freedom.
Born in the Czech Republic and now based in the UK, Lucie represents this freedom first and foremost by stripping away any veils that may condition the gaze, to move away from a traditional view of nudity and back to a tradition of the body, seen as pure unity, the element that most shares mechanisms with the Earth and nature.
Technically, Lucie Nechanicka represents the concept of freedom through perspective distortion or by hiding her body or playing with shadows, which are either natural or brought in by other objects that create decorations on the skin. The use of unusual angles helps to break out of the monotony of the narrative about the human body in photography, as well as other elements that seem to stand between the subject and the viewer, such as lenses, filters or mirrors, capable of altering a first impression that is all about rewriting, revising and analysing outside the traditional box.

Karen Navarro and migration as identity formation

Karen Navarro and migration as identity formation

Tommaso Berra · 5 days ago · Photography

Karen Navarro’s mixed-media photography is a tool through which the Argentinian artist explores sides of her past, her identity and the causes that led to the definition of certain personal traits shared with an entire people.
The multidisciplinary artist creates photos, collages and sculptures focusing on the theme of belonging, to a physical place and to another of the soul, using portraits and resorting to the use of the written word. All of Navarro’s artistic production is influenced by her being an immigrant (she now works in the United States, in Houston) and descendant of indigenous peoples of South America.

Migration in Karen Navarro’s work is in fact seen as a process of inner transformation, of the formation of a collective identity that reflexively shapes the personal one. The interpretation of the symbols of one’s own culture is present both in the installations but above all in the photographs, in which the subjects stand out precisely thanks to these details, together with the work of image transformation and deconstruction of the work.

A new exhibition in Bologna curated by Mulieris Magazine

A new exhibition in Bologna curated by Mulieris Magazine

Tommaso Berra · 1 week ago · Photography

For two months, from 1 February to 30 March 2023, in Bologna, the concept studio THE ROOOM will host a new exhibition, curated by Mulieris Magazine.
The title of the project is DREAMTIGERS, a quotation from the Argentine writer Jorge Luis Borges and his extraordinary imagery in which animals play a fundamental role in stimulating memories and imagination.

DREAMTIGERS is an exhibition that uses the imagination through the works of Lula Broglio, Alejandra Hernández, Joanne Leah, Sara Lorusso, Sara Scanderebech, Ayomide Tejuoso (Plantation), together with the installations of The Mosshelter by Marco Cesari. This dimension thus opens up a world of possibilities not only for the mind but also for the representation of what is real.
A fusion, that between the real and the imaginary, which Sigmud Freud defined as the navel of the dream, an undefined place in which it is possible to freely address the themes that have made THE ROOOM and Mulieris Magazine known to the public in recent years. These themes certainly include the condemnation of any form of discrimination and gender equality, addressed over the years through popularisation, wonderful books and very interesting artistic projects that will continue with the Bolognese exhibition.

Pinhole photography taken from the mouth by Justin Quinnell

Pinhole photography taken from the mouth by Justin Quinnell

Tommaso Berra · 2 weeks ago · Photography

What is pinhole photography? It is an image taken through the photographic process of pinhole photography, a technique that, like most modern cameras, exploits the principle of the camera obscura, but using a small hole as a lens, which creates images through diffraction.
Justin Quinnell is considered one of the leading experts in this technique, both for his almost thirty years as a lecturer worldwide and for his artistic production of experimental photographs.
From Bristol, where he lives, he produces photography using pinhole cameras, creating unusual situations and points of view, thanks to the possibilities of the medium and the deformations of the image.

Among Justin Quinnell’s most bizarre photographic series is the one taken using a smileycam, a camera that the artist places completely inside his own mouth, thus exploiting the power of an unusual and very bizarre point of observation – POV to use a fashionable definition. all of Quinnell’s teeth appear in the frame, which the viewer ends up knowing better than the artist’s own dentist. In addition to the teeth, different subjects are presented from time to time, describing Justin’s daily routine, starting with his toothbrush in the morning, moving on to meals and the cocktail to share in the evening. From the photographer’s mouth we also keep track of his travels, so between an incisor and a canine, St. Mark’s Square in Venice and the Sydney Opera House pop up.

Stenoscopy does not involve any special focusing, which is why the photos look very amateurish. In the past it represented a high point for technology, now, surpassed by much better lenses and lenses, it is used for more experimental and artistic projects, thanks to the possibility of being able to create strange points of view and unpredictable results. Quinnell’s work is a very clear example of this, and if you would like to find out what your mouth sees, you can also find the smileycam here.
