Searching for Sugar Man

I have always been extremely picky on what to watch on tv. My commitment to tv: I owned one back in 2007. I watch couple of series per year, some documentaries, some movies from my laptop. As I’m very picky, I hate being disturbed by advertising when concentrating on my carefully selected program. My criteria for movies/series/other stuff is basically the same I have for books: quality. That’s why I love YLE Areena and love to pay the tax for developing that extraordinary service.

Day 37, Saturday 12th – The First One Down

iceberg

 

Today we had the closure of our first course, design driven business. We all presented our last assignment. An exiting, fun and informational session. Turning Tables, Slow Furniture, 3D personalization, Creabis, exhibition service, mental health and design driven business… Lots of new ideas and inspiration, good discussions and feedback. A really good Saturday. Just to keep in mind the design driven spirit, here’s an iceberg to remind about the ratio between what we see and what’s the size of the entity.

Grey Gardens / Maysles Films 1975

“An old mother and her middle-aged daughter, the aunt and cousin of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, live their eccentric lives in a filthy, decaying mansion in East Hampton.” This documentary (1975) is a knockout. Also check out the photos from IMDB.

Grey Gardens vuodelta 1975 on uskomaton dokumenttielokuva. Se on tyrmäävä tarina äidistä ja tyttärestä, syrjäytymisestä ja köyhyydestä, ylpeydestä ja ilosta. Sekä ihan vain sekoilusta, nimittäin raskaan sarjan sekoilusta – tyylillä. Little Edien asut ovat omintakeisuudessaan aivan upeita. HBO tekaisi dokkarista leffaversion, joka arvailee myös naisten taustoja. Suosittelen dokumenttia (katsottavissa YLE Areenassa vielä kuukauden ajan.)
