  1. Hello,
    I’ve recently met the concept of Slow Cinema. It seems that French people haven’t such a concept.
    I’ve realized that most of the films I like enter this category.
    Very interesting blog. I must dig it!

    I’m always surprised that Straub-Huillet are never in lists of Slow Cinema while it seems that obviously they are part of it and perhaps the parents of it in some way.
    You might be interested by A Wonderful Town by Aditya Assarat from Thailand that I’ve just seen. Thank you for your work!
