Video of the Day: Vancouver Never Plays Itself

vancouverneverplaysitself1

Another entertaining instalment of Tony Zhou’s ongoing series, Every Frame a Painting. This time around, Zhou focuses on his hometown of Vancouver, B.C. pointing out the nagging contradiction that, despite being the third biggest film city in North America, Vancouver Never Plays Itself! While detailing just how easy it is to disguise a generic, chameleon-like city like Vancouver as someplace else, Zhou also questions what it means that Vancouver is so often the location of a filmset but never the setting of the movie. Watch below!

    I remember being far from home and seeing The Never Ending Story, as Falcor flew through the streets of the Downtown Eastside. Little kids we hopping into dumpsters. Such a bad idea. In my homesickness, I made my own Falcor flying experience.

“15/20” by Photographer Neta Dror

 

In 2011, Tel Aviv-based photographer Neta Dror photographed 6 Israeli teens, returning 5 years later to photograph them each again. Now in their 20s, Dror notes that the biggest change isn’t physical but emotional:

“It was incredible to see how differently they presented themselves to me and to the camera: all grew more confident and were less willing to expose themselves. It was clear they were now more aware of who they are and what part of themselves they wanted to show.”

“Copy Kitty” by Illustrator Kyung Me

Illustrator Kyung Me explores the various ways we construct false identities in romantic relationships with a series of drawings surrounding a character named Copy Kitty.
