A film festival evolves from tragedy — Seattle South Asian Film Festival features a theme of “daring”

A film festival evolves from tragedy — Seattle South Asian Film Festival features a theme of “daring”

By Andrew Hamlin
Northwest Asian Weekly

http://nwasianweekly.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/33_45/ae_poster.jpgThe new Seattle South Asian Film Festival, put on by the Tasveer organization, will be running from Oct. 31 to Nov. 9. Festival director Rita Meher took some questions over e-mail.

NWAW:  Please describe your childhood adolescence in Odissa, India.  What were your favorite memories of growing up?  How does Odissa compare and contrast to other places in India?

Rita Meher:  I actually grew up all over India, barely staying in one place, not longer than four years at a time. My last years in India were spent in New Delhi due to school and work. My favorite memories were traveling on a two-day train journey ride to Odissa from wherever we lived at the moment, having chai with my family every morning, crouching on the floor, and having dinner, too. I miss authentic Indian food on the street, so very cheap, and also the fact that you can buy anything on the street. I also miss all the people, and all the many festival celebrations.

“The Tale of the Princess Kaguya”

“The Tale of the Princess Kaguya”

By Andrew Hamlin
Northwest Asian Weekly

http://nwasianweekly.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/33_45/movies1.jpg

Frequently in “The Tale of the Princess Kaguya,” anime director Isao Takahata’s first film in 14 years, the edges of the frame seem unfinished, fading into white.  This directs the viewer’s attention to the center of the frame, to whatever action, in whatever colors.  Then gradually, the frame fills in at the edges.  This happens several times over the film’s 137 minutes, but Takahata does it with such grace that it’s hard to catch.  The director marks time this way, and measures the length of time to another dramatic climax.

LETTER: You be the judge

This is wrong! A Political Action Committee (PAC) called Citizens for Judicial Excellence (CJE) has turned against incumbent King County District Judge Kentu Shah. WHY? He is an honorable man, has done a fine and fair job with his rulings, has been endorsed for reelection by many of his peers, including the entire bench of the State Supreme Court, and has received high ratings from local bar associations. The CJE praised Judge Shah’s qualifications when he was appointed in 2013. Unlike Judge Shah, his opponent, Sarah Hayne, has limited courtroom experience and has refused to have her qualifications vetted by the local bar associations so the public can objectively compare the two candidates. Why the switch of support by the PAC (formed to supposedly promote judicial excellence), which previously praised Judge Shah? Read the full story
