EM you were talking about stories about paintings, and I was like, shit, there’s this short story I’ve listened to three or four times now about paintings in the last month. It’s called “Selected Program Notes from the Retrospective Exhibition of Theresa Rosenberg Latimer” by Kenneth Schneyer, and you can listen to it here. I don’t have a link to a text version, but the reader does a good job I think, and honestly adds more in some ways to the juxtaposition between what the narrator/art critic who wrote the program notes thinks is going on and what we as the reader know is happening than a text version might.
The story consistently gives me chills like. Every single time I listen to it. There’s one somewhat detailed description of a depiction of child abuse in one of the paintings, as well as discussions occasionally of Rosenberg’s abusive family situation. But generally the story doesn’t go into detail about it. The main character is also a married lesbian, and the whole thing really does take place as a series of program notes on an exhibit of these fictional paintings.
ymmv, and you know again heed the warnings above, and there’s also mention of medication overdose and cancer, but. i am really into this story. especially if you’re hecked up about art, this is. a good story.
someone pls absolve me of the fact that i missed my childrens lit class tjhanks
oh god by the way I highly rec this drabble my friend wrote about Sam Vimes and Javert and Jim Gordon in a bar. READ IT. (If you are interested in at least two of the characters, anyway.) IT IS SHORT AND A GEM.
"And you haven’t caught him," the Frenchman went on, scorn creeping steadily into his voice, "He dresses like a bat and you haven’t caught him."
"Well at least I didn’t miss mine when he was right under my nose as the mayor of my town."
"That was a very special circumstance!" the Frenchman yelled. "You cannot imagine the horror of having to accuse your superior of breaking parole and faking his identity all on the basis of how he lifted a cart!
Roseanne Supernault and Eric Schweig in a scene from “Maïna” (2012) The film also stars Tantoo Cardinal and Graham Greene. From Perspective Canada:
Following a bloody confrontation between her clan and the clan of “Men from the Land of Ice,” Maïna, daughter of Innu Grand Chief Mishtenapuu, finds herself unwillingly drawn into a mission that will change her life.
Ooh ooh ooh!
First contact stories that don’t involve white folks? DOPENESS.
did I reblog this??? so what.
It was filmed in Kuujjuak and the dogs in it are owned by an actual dog sledder, they did their research. The actors are mainly from Nunavut and they had to learn the Nunavik dialect to make their lines more seamless since Inuit have varied words. They also consulted Innu people to be as true to the cultures as they could. They hired first nations women who know how to sew and consulted elders on how to work with animal hide the way it was done before settlers. The amount of effort put into the movie is great and I can’t wait to see it.
this looks awesome!!!
