The documentary is based on the research:
“Time to look at girls: adolescent girls’ migration and development”.
by Nicoletta Del Franco, Marina de Regt, Katarzyna Grabska,.
Supported by: Swiss Network of International Studies (SNIS).

Lota comes from the poor rural area of Bangladesh and dreams to improve her status and gain economic independency. She moves to megacity of Dhaka, finds shelter in a slum and starts to work in a garment factory. She works 12 hours a day, earning 50 cents of a dollar per hour.

Tigist, Ethiopian girl, was ment to have more priviledged life. She was born in a family of two teachers, but after both her parents died in a car crash, she became a victim of abuse by her relatives. Escaping from a situation of enslavement, Tigist ends up on the streets of Addis Ababa. Without a place to sleep or anyone to call for, she is quickly surrounded by predators and has to fight for her surivival.

2 Girls is a character-driven and observational documentary about two young women, who are linked to each other through a universal journey of poverty and abuse for the sake of dreaming a better life. It’s a heartbreakingly harsh journey, where Lota and Tigist meet their hopes and destinies. Yet, despite their tough lives, they reveal an inner strength and great dignity. They come from poverty, they fall into even worse conditions, but they never stop striving to improve their state. Overwhelmed by global injustice and gender-oriented abuse, Lota and Tigist manage to keep their souls uncorrupted by the wrongdoings they face.

The story of 2 Girls is a story lived every day by millions of girls all around the world but rarely has it been told with the same power of testimony than in this documentary,

NCJA Global Motion Picture of the Month: @Janapar_Film w/ @Tom_R_Allen directed by @JamesWNewton #NoCriticsJustArists

A TRUE STORY DIRECTED BY JAMES NEWTON                            FILMED BY TOM ALLEN

23-year-old Englishman Tom Allen is all set for a successful career, but he finds himself persisted by the question of our time: isn’t there more to life than this? Leaving it all behind, Tom sets off on the ultimate quest for freedom. For the next 12,000 miles, with neither maps nor guidebooks, Tom films the unfolding of his dream. But the journey takes an unlikely detour when he falls in love with an Iranian-Armenian girl. Filmed over four years with cinematic ambition, Janapar — named after the Armenian word for journey — is an honest and life-affirming tale of finding what you’re looking for when you least expect it.

Tokyo, the late 1960s… Students around the world are uniting to overthrow the establishment and Toru Watanabe’s personal life is similarly in tumult. At heart, he is deeply devoted to his first love, Naoko (Rinko Kikuchi), a beautiful and introspective young woman. But their complex bond has been forged by the tragic death of their best friend years before. Watanabe lives with the influence of death everywhere. That is, until Midori, a girl who is everything that Naoko is not –outgoing, vivacious, supremely self-confident—marches into his life and Watanabe must choose between his past and his future.

Author Photo (Dawn of the Dead Tee)

While you may be wondering (& hoping) that this artist personality matches his caricature image,  he’s certainly an imaginative art seeker who happens to be an author and numbers geek- to say the least. An art/pop culture artist powered by film and music, Chojnacki exposes the vast underground art scene of ‘Alternative Movie Poster’ creation.

Describing the artists featured in his newly released book [Alternative Movie Posters: Film Art from the Underground] as groundbreaking- No Critics considers Chojnacki as a groundbreaking artist as well, as those who shine light on artistry of unfamiliar art mediums & forms they themselves become some what of ‘ART-STORIANS’ (Artist + Historian =…) 🙂 Individuals like Matthew create massive art-addicted cult like cliques whose common interest are ‘unknown & underground art- Undiscovered-Untouched!

Stay tuned as this art evangelist (*Art Gospel of course) appears in documentaries and Pop Art exhibits in a town near you!

Enough of us being critical…

GO AHEAD AND DISCOVER! WE DARE YOU!!!
