I FOUND YOUR FILM Documentary
Hanne van der Velde and Jelte van Lente of Rue du Labrador Films thrift cameras in search of forgotten film discarded in the camera decades earlier. These memories are developed and presented in their mini-documentary available at https://www.hannevandervelde.com/ruedulabradorfilms/ – On Instagram – https://www.instagram.com/ifoundyourfilm/
Photographer and environmentalist Ron Hoffer book FROM THE BRONX TO BERLIN AND BEYOND is reviewed by John Fedele. Taken with his 35mm camera after the fall of the Berlin Wall, German photographer Ron Hoffer’s color vignettes of women, youth, everyday culture and devastated landscapes―collected in this volume―offer glimpses of optimism in the economic and political uncertainty of the post-Soviet era.
