In today’s contemporary world, unconventional movies are not easily defined by most, looking at the ways that our world and culture has evolved, what is unconventional to one person, may be the only kind of movie that another watches. The Theatre at the Mall of the Emirates brings to you two such Award winning movies – Recorder: The Marion Stokes Project and Citizen Jane: Battle for the City
The Recorder directed by Matt Wolf showcases a Communist radical who became fabulously wealthy later in life, Marion Stokes secretly recorded American television 24 hours a day for 30 years from1975 until her death in 2012. For Marion, taping was a form of activism to seek the truth and she believed that a comprehensive archive of the media would one day be invaluable. Her visionary and maddening project nearly tore her family apart, but now her 70,000 VHS tapes are being digitized for future generations
There is still a huge industry in the film that promotes conventional movies and a lot of new blockbuster movies have a well-organized plot that people can easily follow. One film that comes to our mind is Citizen Jane: Battle for the City
Citizen Jane: Battle for the City directed by Matt Tyrnauer is a story about our global urban future, in which nearly three-fourths of the world’s population will live in cities by the end of this century. It’s also a story about America’s recent urban past, in which bureaucratic, “top down” approaches to building cities have dramatically clashed with grassroots, “bottom up” approaches. The film brings us back mid-century, on the eve of the battles for the heart and soul of American cities, about to be routed by cataclysmically destructive Urban Renewal and highway projects.
