The video for the song is a new short film by Marit Östberg, the Stockholm and Berlin based filmmaker whose works are known for their feminist leanings. Östberg’s films tend to focus on queer bodies and sexualities with an unblinking eye, and “Full of Fire” is no exception.  “The film ... Read More

With so many Americans taking issue with these binary points of view, is does seem like the right moment to consider setting ... Read More

Last week, a video called “The Flip Side (Bar)” went viral, parodying male/female dynamics in the club scene. The video depicts men acting stereotypically female, and vice versa.   I love the video for three reasons: 1)  It gives humorous insight into the experience of being the other sex in a place where you are expected to embody every possible gender stereotype in existence.  It’s easy to lose track, in this video, ...

  “I’ve decided to tell you about my never ending story,” reads a card in Canadian teen Amanda Todd’s hand in a soundless black and white YouTube video.    I remember watching this video years ago, feeling a chill come over me as I read the words written by Amanda in black marker on the cards she holds up to the camera.  Half her face is out of the shot, but as the story progresses, you can still see the overwhelming ...
