THE WELSH LGBT+ SCENE OUTSIDE OF CARDIFF | FEATURE

Cardiff certainly has a proud LGBT+ community, but what about outside of Cardiff? The other Friday night I went to Hey Mary – “an alternative, inclusive queer club-night in Cardiff, premiering and showcasing the very best in alternative drag and queer music” – and it occurred to me that there is nowhere to go for […]

WOW FILM FESTIVAL: AMBULANCE | FILM REVIEW

WOW FILM FESTIVAL: AMBULANCE | FILM REVIEW

***** Ambulance The first film of Sunday’s edition of WOW Film Festival at Chapter this year was certainly not the easiest film to digest early on a Sunday morning. To say that Mohamed Jabaly’s documentary account of his time spent following an ambulance crew in the Gaza strip during the Israel-Gaza war of 2014 is […]

WOW FILM FESTIVAL: CLASH | FILM REVIEW

WOW FILM FESTIVAL: CLASH | FILM REVIEW

Of all the films seen so far at this year’s WOW film festival, Mohamed Diab’s Clash is far and above the best I’ve seen. More than that, the director’s thrilling, edge-of-your-seat drama is one of the best films of the year so far. Featuring a high-concept idea that is perfectly executed for the big-screen, the […]

WOW FILM FESTIVAL: WULU | FILM FESTIVAL

WOW FILM FESTIVAL: WULU | FILM FESTIVAL

Drawing the second night of WOW to a close, Wùlu is easily the most conventional film of the festival so far. Hailing from West Africa, it is a piece of genre filmmaking with Western sensibilities that, whilst put together with style and confidence, doesn’t quite work as a political statement. Ibrahim Koma puts in a […]

WOW FILM FESTIVAL: THE COLOURS OF THE MOUNTAIN | FILM REVIEW

Released in 2010, this year WOW film festival has giving its audience an opportunity to see The Colors of The Mountain, a little known drama from Colombia, on the big screen. Whilst its age does show, with the whole thing looking like it was shot in old handheld cameras, it’s a drama that manages to […]

WOW FILM FESTIVAL: THE BLACK HEN | FILM REVIEW

Getting the second day of the 2017 WOW film festival off to a flying start, Min Bahadur Bam’s The Black Hen is a charming tale of friendship, family and hens in the Himalayas. But whilst the film is truly sweet, the sweetest of the festival so far, it has a tough political undercurrent running beneath […]

WOW FILM FESTIVAL: NERUDA | FILM REVIEW

WOW FILM FESTIVAL: NERUDA | FILM REVIEW

Closing the opening night of WOW 2017, Pablo Larraín’s fantastical biopic of Chilean poet, Pablo Neruda, is a strange little cinematic oddity that I couldn’t help but fall in love with. Whereas most biographical pictures can be quite ordinary and often get bogged down in the truth of the subject, this embraces the poetry and […]

WOW FILM FESTIVAL: THE WAR SHOW | FILM REVIEW

Kicking things off at this year’s WOW film festival, The War Show is quite easily one of the most powerful and deeply affecting films of 2017 so far. If you have seen or can remember the rather brilliant Oscar-nominated 2013 documentary, The Square, then this is its distant relative; a frontline account of the aftermath […]
