C: Food whoring done correctly

Why, how and when do people ever say no to food? International food market was a nice treat a few weeks back here in York and as my mother would say ‘The only thing you shouldn’t feel guilty about spending money on is food.’ I take that saying quite to heart and let myself go. I had tried the Moroccan food before and it was brilliant yet I didn’t want to play it safe a second time round.

I tried a Kangaroo burger, which I have to say I was slightly disappointed with. My Paella which was for seconds was a real surprise and in a different league to any of the ones I’d tried when I was in Tenerife last summer. Of course I have my flatmates (Michelle to the right) baking goods weekly. All this and I still feel famished all the time. Foods ranged from British to Caribbean and was a feast for the eyes even if your pockets were empty. I’m glad I didn’t have any more money on me because I may have proceeded to buy as much of the market as I could afford.

SEE: Limassol International Documentary Festival Highlights

Relating back to my post earlier in the year, you can now see a small highlights trailer for the Limassol International Documentary festival of the year, it truly was a very vibrant atmosphere and I think the video above shows it well, sorry on the slow posts however the life of a University student never involves much free time!

Limassol International Documentary Festival

I attended the Limassol Documentary Festival this year. I was impressed with the variation of documentaries shown at the festival, I wish I saw more but I only managed to catch two, one about Eco Terrorism (If a Tree falls: A Story of the Earth Liberation Front). All about how terrorism can be used to prevent environmental damage yet how lack of knowledge and the fact all of it must be done in secret means they sometimes get things wrong. Some powerful images such as the police spraying pepper spray into protesters eyes. It was an American documentary which was quite well made and didn’t seem to biased to one side.

The Second documentary I saw was called Mustafa’s sweet dreams. About a boys big ambitions to move to Istanbul and become a master at Baklava making. Now I’m a sucker for Baklava, the documentary was interesting and some people commented at the end on how they thought it wasn’t at all scripted. I thought it didn’t really fulfill the documentary criteria and was a bit long winded in parts. Perhaps it just wasn’t for me, it ended with him returning home having failed on his dreams and some bits came across awfully cheesy. Yes there were some nice camera angles used + watching it in a different language was really enjoyable. Take a look at the trailers below, have you been to any film festivals of late? Let me know.
