    indieWIRE INTERVIEW | "Quiet City" Director Aaron Katz

    Director and co-writer Aaron Katz's "Quiet City" follows 21 year-old Jamie [Erin Fisher] who travels to Brooklyn, NY from Atlanta, Georgia to visit her friend, but she's nowhere to be found. While looking further, Jamie meets Charlie [Cris Lankenau] who she asks for directions. Nothing to do and nothing but time leads them to bowls of coleslaw, footraces in the park, art shows, and after parties. The film is screening at New York's IFC Center in the series "New Talkies: Generation DIY" (also dubbed mumblecore by the press, including iW).

    DISPATCH FROM SARAJEVO | Local Titles and International Hits Mix This Week at Sarajevo Fest

    "Sarajevo is certainly evidence of the resilience of the human spirit," commented one filmmaker off the cuff over the weekend at one of many informal gatherings organized by the very hospitable Sarajevo Film Festival. Now entering its teens, SFF may not have yet reached the cache of some of its older and richer Western European brethren in Berlin, Edinburgh or San Sebastian, but for a city that only a little over a decade ago emerged from a three year siege that left thousands dead in its wake, SFF has amassed a world class event luring top-notch filmmakers and others for its relatively young 13th outing, including high-profile titles like Ca...

    Time Magazine wasn't just phoning it in when they decided to name "You" as their "Person of the Year" for 2006. We live in a media era where everything is "My" this, "You" that, and "i" something, where a simple "send" or "publish" button could reach millions. And, faster than you can say "thanks fo...

The film's tag line basically sums up the doc's overall subject: "When the rich steal from the poor... the poor steal the rich." Set in Brazil, "Manda Bala" examines the corruption and class warfare that runs rampant in the South American country, with individual stories from the country's elite who fall victim to kidnapping for ransom, while conversely spotlighting the high-end thievery practice...
