Red: A Kubrick Supercut

a documentary in no language

A supercut examining Stanley Kubrick's use of the color red.

I have always been fascinated by color as a form of non-verbal communication. Color has a profound and powerful psychological effect on us and it makes the perfect tool for providing subtext in film—as well as supporting a certain theme or providing the right mood.

Kubrick has always used red to great effect—not only for atmosphere but for the fact that the various meanings ascribed to red echo many of the themes in his films.

Red’s many meanings include: death, blood, danger, anger, energy, war, strength, power, determination…but also passion, desire, love, and sex. All prominent themes in Kubrick’s work. But more importantly the very dualistic nature of red (the fact that it can mean anger but also love) plays right into the grand “Jungian" theme in all of Kubrick’s work which is this notion of Duality: sex and violence, birth and death, war and peace, fear and desire...

In the end my motivation to make this piece was simply to contribute to the growing collection of deconstruction surrounding Kubrick's work found on the web and to inspire people to revisit or discover his catalog of films and to think more critically about color in film.

Why palm-oil production is going green

a report in English

What do lipstick, ice cream and orangutan-suited activists have in common?

Palm-oil.

This cheap and versatile material is in about half the stuff on the world's supermarket shelves. Close to sixty million tonnes of it are consumed each year, and demand is growing fast.

But the palm-oil industry has a bad reputation. Over the last three decades, growers have cut down huge swathes of South-East Asia’s tropical forests and drained valuable peatlands to make room for new plantations.

That has contributed to climate change, destroyed the habitats of endangered species and driven indigenous people from their lands.

In 2004 some growers, traders and buyers introduced a certification scheme to reward firms who cleaned up their act. Critics have said the standards are too meek. But sales of certified palm oil have doubled in the past three years; it now makes up one-fifth of all supply.

Lately many big firms have made new commitments beyond what the certification requires. This is in large part due to environmental campaigners, who have urged Western consumers not to buy well-known products from companies such as Unilever and Nestlé unless the firms can prove that all the palm oil they use is sourced sustainably, or soon will be.

A few of these companies have therefore asked scientists to produce a clear definition of what palm growers should do to expand the industry without further frying the planet. The researchers' draft recommendations, published in June, rule out the use of all virgin forests, most forests that have been only partially-cleared, and so-called 'secondary' forests—those that have been cleared but allowed to grow back for 20 years.

While big producers with Western buyers could adopt the measures, smaller ones with lots of Asian clients may not—and those make up over half the industry. Governments may be forced to incorporate the recommendations into national law. If that happens, palm oil could finally shift its reputation and become a model for sustainable agriculture.

This Day (feat. Winston Churchill)

a documentary in English

Music: M83
Speech: Excerpt from Winston Churchill's address to the Congress of the United States, December 26, 1941

"Sure I am that this day, now, we are the masters of our fate. That the task which has been set us is not above our strength. That its pangs and toils are not beyond our endurance. As long as we have faith in our cause, and an unconquerable willpower, salvation will not be denied us. In the words of the Psalmist: "He shall not be afraid of evil tidings. His heart is fixed, trusting in the Lord."
