Need a study break? We recommend director Lee Chang-Dong’s moody masterpiece, “Burning.” It tells the story of an aimless young writer named Lee Jong-su (Yoo Ah-in), whose rootless existence is turned upside down after a chance encounter with childhood classmate Shin Hae-mi. A thoughtful, gorgeous film.

Our second recommendation in our Movies to Watch at Home series: A Bigger Splash is a sizzling drama set on a Sicilian Island, where famous singer Marianne Lane vacations with her boyfriend — until her ex husband shows up and brings trouble. Director Luca Guadagnino doesn’t disappoint with this darkly funny script and sexy cast of actors. We promise it’ll make you feel like you’re on your very own island, lounging by the pool, peering mischievously over your designer shades...

We're doing a series of movie recommendations for your home viewing! First up: Daughters of The Dust is a stunningly beautiful film about a family in the Gullah community of coastal South Carolina, set at the dawn of the 20th century. Watch for warmer weather, a tender portrait of a matriarchal family and their generational divides, and exceptional directing by Julie Dash 🎥✨

Interested in being part of a film crew? Read on!

Films are being made here at Smith, and crew members are needed! This is a really great opportunity to get some experience on set, and work collaboratively on a vision to make it happen.

The Student Film Crew Database will serve as a starting point for communication between student filmmakers and students interested in crew work. It is a shared document and student filmmakers may reach out to you, but you are not committing to anything if you write your name. Fill out your information if you are interested: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1b585VJfoQxrQhp2Omvj_hNUFPs0fdlP4MN9Me0GJvXM/edit?usp=sharing

You do not need to have any experience, but if you have experience, that is great. If you don’t want to put your name and email on the database but are still interested, feel free to message us.

The database will live on beyond this semester and I hope it can also function outside production classes here at Smith. It is an living document that has the potential to be a great resource for student filmmakers and those who want to get experience on set. Share this post so we can continue building a robust filmmaking community!

Thank you to everyone for your continued interest, and I hope many of you take up this opportunity! I think this sort of thing – helping each other get involved in film production – is something Don't Blink can continue to be committed to. :- )

Thanks & cheers,
Julia

I was looking into the slice of life film genre and came across Ruby in Paradise. Writer and Director Victor Nunez utilizes the storyline of Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen and gives a look at Ruby Lee Gissing, played by a young Ashley Judd, as she maneuvers life as a young adult. Nunez takes the 1hr and 54 minutes of film and turns it into an indie character study of young adulthood in Panama City, Florida in the 90’s. A quite admirable movie by him that is now available on digital and video on demand platforms, like Prime and Comcast. I am dropping the trailer in as I think it’s a great little indie film.
