Claire Facing North screens at the 2024 New Jersey International Film Festival on Friday, June 7th

by Diego Arellano - published 2024-06-06

Claire Facing North, which screens online at the 2024 New Jersey International Film Festival on Friday, June 7th, starts off with images of greenery, sheep, and an awfully violent volcano. These images act as somewhat of a parallel to the unfinished nature of lead character Claire’s sentiments. She goes off into the mountains as some sort of search for self-discovery, which is peculiar considering the age of the elderly woman. Usually, there’s this notion of having a mid-life crisis, but here, it’s apparent she’s having it at a way less tender age. What then occurs to me while watching this is that I came to this conclusion having only seen moving images as there is no dialogue to help me get there. There’s this innately visceral nature to the film, even without much dialogue. The image alone conveys so much while vocally saying literally nothing. Even having interacted with other people who appear in the film, the woman’s only reactions come from facial expressions. There is no vocal retaliation, and the viewers are left then with an introspection, giving us the opportunity to really sit with the film in real-time and think. The nature of the thinking is not of a logical one, but more of a stream of consciousness. We as viewers are put into her place, living through the same moments and having similar thoughts.

Two amazing docs Fencing for the Edge and Found: The King of Matsutake Ridge premiere at the 2024 New Jersey International Film Festival on Saturday, June 8!

by Anran Li - published 2024-06-04

Fencing for the Edge is an iced soda on a hot summer night. Much as we know sports are revelries of adrenaline, I was taken aback by the resonance I felt from watching this documentary about fencing. This piece, woven with real tears and joy, clenched and scratched my heart as I started fidgeting in my seat, wishing time would pass sooner to know what would come next. Despite Hollywood's successful portrayals of athletic prowess, the glitzy studio shots didn't strike me as much as this team of teenage girls, whose most sincere emotions through struggles and triumphs outshine even the most praised performance.
