Here's something I wrote about the colonial politics in our contemporary ideas of romance, with reference to Netflix's #Bridgerton & the BBC's adaptation of #NormalPeople 💘 Thanks so much to @DrFarihaShaikh, @comyn_scomyn & @eldavldn for reading & commenting on earlier versions.
Due to the nature of online publishing, I couldn't link to all the amazing things I read while writing it so here's a 🧵with everything (I think!). There is so much brilliant stuff on #Bridgerton! @DrSepinwall's great 🧵(+ shout out to @AnnetteJosephG)
There is also this excellent roundtable with @ProvAtlantic, @MiraAssafK, @DrDadabhoy, @DrSepinwall & Kerry Sinanan kerrysinanan.medium.com/unsilencing-th…; and Ineye Komonibo & Kathleen Newman-Bremang’s ‘A Double Hot Take On Bridgerton’ for @Refinery29 refinery29.com/en-ca/2020/12/…

Being a Cinematographer is the best job on the planet (It’s true. Don’t make me fight you). A thread of some of my favorite Female + Trans DPs.

#EllenKuras - 1st time I met Ellen was at a now defunct (?) Women in Film org event. I was ridiculously excited to meet her. Prob best known for #EternalSunshine but was #Unzipped that wow’d. Revolutionized how I viewed docs. Here’s Mizrahi & Eartha Kitt
#SandiSissel. We all watched #SalaamBombay. Keeping tabs on Sandi’s career introduced me to 2nd Unit DP opportunities. I admired her versatility moving from indie film to #MasterAndCommander. Two visual worlds I love to play in.

My list from July.. let's see how many turn out to be true. #emmys
Happy for Mark Ruffalo who is absolutely incredible, but wouldn't it have been something if Paul Mescal had won. I mean, what a debut. #NormalPeople #Emmys
SCHITT'S CREEK YASSSSS!!!
REGINA KING YASSS!!!!!!

Also I love John Oliver (he is literally my favourite talk show host of all times) but this year Trevor Noah really should have been, particularly for his video on George Floyd's murder.

Are we are hunting mosquitoes with a G5 cannon?

For the people crying for the world to remain shut down, answer these questions:

1) How many children should starve in order to make you feel safe?

2) How many families must go bankrupt in order to make you feel safe?
#COVID19
3) How many wives and children must be stuck at home with an abusive husband/father in order to make you feel safe?

4) How many business owners should lose everything they've worked for in order to make you feel safe?

#NormalPeople #COVID19
5) How many people are you comfortable with committing suicide from hopelessness and financial ruin in order to make you feel safe?

Come up with an number, don't just dismiss this. Come up with a number that you think should surrender their lives for YOUR feelings and safety.
