NOTES ABOUT BRIXTON

How can Brixton and the nuances that make it up be portrayed? Brixton is community. Brixton is Jamaica, Afghanistan, Ethiopia - a bit European,a bit Caribbean and a bit African. It smells of jerk chicken and Indian roti. Brixton is also music. But mostly, Brixton is change: its dark past leads to a bright, SOHO-stylish future. How can you describe Brixton to someone who has never been there? Perhaps the best way of showing this diversity is describing Brixton in all the different ways it could be described - in 5 minutes.

Notes about Brixton is the approach of someone who has never been there before: the filmmaker herself.

SUE AND

THE MONSTERS:

WHAT I LIKE ABOUT SUE

"Sue and the Monsters" is a mini-documentary series that briefly portraits the early years of photographer Sue Rynski. Sue photographed Detroit´s punk rock scene in the 70s. She was there when everything was happening,  shooting photos of emblematic bands such as Iggy Pop, The Mutants, Destroy All Monsters, and Patti Smith, among others. While telling us anecdotes from the golden era of punk rock, Sue also tells us about her philosophy of life, how the only rule she follows in life is being 100% authentic: whatever she does, she does it from the gut. This is an ongoing project.

ILLUSTRATING MUSIC

"Illustrating music" is a brief portrait covering part of the work from the San Sebastian- based artist Alicia Martín.
