The Femina Ridens crew have come together to share links we think are worth reading, on a biweekly basis! Here’s some reading material to get you through the uphill climb of the beginning of the work week.
- “The Movie Set That Ate Itself,” a story about a Ukranian city that was the site of the movie shoot that never ended. (Here’s a podcast about it as well!)
- Natasha Kmeto’s new album Inevitable is one of the best of the year, and here’s a mix she put together for FACT Magazine with remixes and vocal/instrumental snippets of both her albums.
- Speaking of badass female musicians, here’s Gangsta Boo’s new mixtape Candy, Diamonds, & Pills!
- A perfect cat eye is a dream only to be fulfilled by the most super of supermodels, right? Maybe not – here’s some really helpful tips on getting the perfect cat eye.
- The Rialto Report interviewed photographer Joyce Baronio, who took pictures of sex workers in Times Square between 1976-1980, and it’s a fascinating look at a world that no longer exists. (Link is definitely NSFW)
- We’re all still mourning the loss of legendary feminist filmmaker Chantal Akerman; Robert Greene, editor and director of the recent Actress, remembers his hero Akerman in this piece for the Guardian. Film Studies for Free also put together a wonderful compendium of writing on Akerman.
- Halloween is coming! Here are a few feminist readings on horror films to get you in the mood: Rachael Nisbet on the fashion in Dial: Help, and Justine Smith on Harry Kumel’s classic Daughters of Darkness.
