Dat wat we eten.

Fotograaf Peter Menzel reisde rond de wereld, fotografeerde verschillende families en dat wat zij zich per week aan voedsel (kunnen) veroorloven. Logischerwijs verschilt het dan nogal of je in North Carolina, Mexico, Equador, Japan of een tentenkamp ergens in Afrika woont. Wel mooie confronterende beelden, zeker met onderschrift.

Zeg meneer Van Harskamp,

Wordt anders even fout wakker deze zondag.

WTF!??

Shinboru (Symbol) van de Japanse regisseur Hitoshi Matsumoto moet toch de weirdste film op de laatste editie van het Filmfestival Rotterdam zijn geweest. Check de trailer hieronder, wees totaal verrast en ga ‘m kijken. Ik verzeker u: 95 minuten opperste verbazing. Een synopsis op IMDB:

A Japanese man wakes up alone in a brightly illuminated white room with no windows or doors. When he presses a mysteriously phallic protuberance that appears on one wall, a pink toothbrush materializes from nowhere, clattering to the floor and setting in motion a genuinely bizarre chain of events. Soon the imprisoned man is engaged in absurd and hilarious attempts to escape the gleaming room, releasing random objects from the walls, creating a life sized mouse trap game in which a rope, a toilet plunger and an earthenware jug full of sushi might just be the keys to his escape. Meanwhile, in a dusty town, a green masked Mexican wrestler known as Escargot Man prepares for an important match. His family gathers around him, worried about his seeming impassivity before battle.
