The Screening Room….Trafic by Jacques Tati

tati_trafic102814

I don’t speak French, and I can’t keep up with subtitles-but that doesn’t stop me from getting a kick out of a good Tati film.

 

These movies are so visual and so unique (the girl above stores her floppy hats where you’d expect to find a spare tire!) The mood of a Tati film is instantly recognizable and now super easy to access-as of last week I noticed that all six of Tati’s films are now available on iTunes.

 

Definitely worth viewing if you’re in the mood for something a little bit different, but not too serious. 

Screen Shot 2014-10-20 at 10.32.44 AM-Also how great are these Criterion Collection cover artworks for the films (pictured above). The covers have just as much character as the films themselves.

The Reading List….Conflict and Costume by Jim Naughten

I’m realizing now that The Reading List, might have been more aptly named The Viewing List, considering most of the books I love seem to contain more photos than actual words! (a shocking fact-I know)

 

In Conflict and Costume, Naughten photographs the Herero Tribe of Namibia in their native costume. This “costume” has evolved over the last 100+ years out of what Europeans left behind in South Africa, and what the Herero Tribe subsequently adopted. To see so many misplaced patterns, shapes, and colors set against an overwhelmingly serene backdrop, surprisingly creates a nice sense of harmony. It’s funny how two contrasting visuals can play off of eachother so nicely.

 

If you’re interested, the book is available for purchase on Amazon
