Feminine Power: the divine and the demonic. Review by Carla Scarano. The Citi exhibition at the British Museum is a thought-provoking and diverse display of more than 80 artefacts and contemporary artworks that draw from the museum’s collections, loans and new commissions. They reveal the complexity of the representation of more than 5,000 years of femininity in cultures and religions around the world.
Desire / All My Good Countrymen (Vojtech Jasny). Review by Alan Price. “Jasny is the spiritual father of the Czech New Wave” claimed Milos Forman. Vojtech Jasny drew upon the lyricism of 1930’s Czech cinema to create his own dreamy naturalism and generosity of spirit that influenced those young directors of the 1960’s. Now we have the opportunity to see fine transfers of two key Jasny films: Desire (1958) and All My Good Countrymen (1968).
