Diane Arbus documentary

An amazing 30-minute documentary about the life and work of Diane Arbus:

“Freaks was a thing I photographed a lot. … They made me feel a mixture of shame and awe. There’s a quality of legend about freaks. … If you’ve ever spoken to someone with two heads, you know they know something you don’t. Most people go through life dreading they’ll have a traumatic experience. Freaks were born with their trauma. They’ve already passed their test in life. They’re aristocrats.”

Bundled, Buried & Behind Closed Doors

‘Bundled, Buried & Behind Closed Doors’ by Ben Mendelsohn is a short documentary on the material infrastructure of the Internet:

“Lower Manhattan’s 60 Hudson Street is one of the world’s most concentrated hubs of Internet connectivity. Set in the dense, mixed-use neighborhood of Tribeca, the building’s nondescript brick exterior conceals several network interconnection facilities where huge amounts of data are exchanged. This short documentary peeks inside, offering a glimpse of the massive material infrastructure that makes the Internet possible.”

Guardavo un documentario sull’Est europeo su Rai Uno stamattina e c’era una parte su Andy Warhol. Intervistavano un suo cugino cecoslovacco. Il signor Varhola raccontava: “Mia zia ci scrisse che in America Andy faceva il pittore, ma noi abbiamo sempre pensato che fosse imbianchino”.
