Cambodia’s Oscar bid scoops two awards at APSA

Even if you’re a deeply committed movie buff, there are movies you’ve never heard of that will win or be nominated for awards during awards season. This is one of the reasons we like to inquire with overseas award bodies. If only all films could be released everywhere for us moviegoers! We just caught up with the Asia Pacific Screen Awards, now in their 15th year. indonesia Before Now & Then took home the top prize, but in addition to a few nominees we hadn’t heard of yet, five current Oscar nominees took home awards: joyland, Back to Seoul, Aurora’s Sunrise, and Muru, and the documentary anything that breathes

BEST FILM

BEFORE NOW AND THEN

  • ★ “Before, Now & Then” (aka “Nana”) (Indonesia) dir. Kamila Andini
  • “Poet” (aka “Akyn”) (Kazakhstan) dir. Darezhan Omirbayev
  • “Return to Seoul” (aka “Return a Seoul”) (Cambodia, Qatar, France, Belgium, Germany) dir. Davy Chou
  • “That’s What I Remember” (aka “Esimde”) (Kyrgyzstan, Japan, Netherlands, France) dir. Aktan Arym Kubat
  • “When The Waves Are Gone” (aka “Kapag Wala Nang Mga Alon”) (Philippines, France, Denmark, Portugal) dir. Lav Diaz.

Before Now and Thenof the too little known Kamila Andini (seen and unseen, yuni) won an actor award at the Berlinale and now he’s had a historic win at APSA. This is the first film directed by a woman to win and also the first Indonesian film to win!

BEST YOUTH FILM

  • “Alam” (Palestine, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, France, Tunisia) dir. Firas Khoury
  • ★ “Farha” (Jordan, Palestine, Saudi Arabia, Sweden) dir. Darin J Sallam
  • “Hanging Gardens” (aka “Janain mualaqa”) (Iraq, Egypt, Lebanon, Palestine, Saudi Arabia, UK) dir. Ahmed Yassine Al Daradji
  • “Jaggi” (India) dir. Anmol Sidhou
  • “Sweet As” (Australia) dir. Jub Clerc

Farha is about a teenage girl in Palestine who witnesses a disaster in her home while locked in the pantry. This is the feature debut of Jordanian director Darin J Sallam.

BEST ANIMATED FILM

  • ★ “Aurora’s Sunrise” (Armenia, Germany, Lithuania)
  • “Dounia and the Princess of Aleppo” (aka “Dounia and the Princess of Aleppo”) (Canada)
  • Goodbye, Don Glee! (aka “Gubbai, Don Gurîzu!”) Japan
  • “Silver Bird and Rainbow Fish” (“USA, Netherlands”)
  • “To The Bright Side” (aka “Xiang zhe ming liang na fang”) China

Aurora’s Sunrise, a documentary about a silent film actress who survived the genocide, is also Armenia’s Oscar submission this season.

BEST DOCUMENTARY FILM


  • ★ “All That Breathes” (India, US, UK)
  • “Blue Island” (Hong Kong, Japan)
  • “Children of the Mist” (Vietnam)
  • “Delikado” (Philippines, Australia, Hong Kong, USUK)
  • “Woodgirls – A duet for a dream” (Iran, Czech Republic)

anything that breathes, a documentary about Indian siblings rescuing injured birds, is getting a lot of attention. After debuting with a Jury Prize at Cannes, it was named an IDA finalist and also made the DOC NYC shortlist, which often leads to buzz at the Oscars. Unfortunately, HBO doesn’t show it until 2023. They haven’t announced a date yet, so we’re guessing they’ll wait and see their Oscar prospects (sigh).

BEST DIRECTOR

  • Kamila Andini for “Before, Now & Then” (“Nana”)
  • Shin Su-won for “Tribute” (aka “Omaju”) (Korea)
  • ★ Davy Chou for “Return to Seoul”
  • Ameer Fakher Eldin for “The Stranger” (aka “Al Garib”) (Palestine, Syria, Qatar, Germany)
  • Lav Diaz for “When The Waves Are Gone” (Philippines)

Return to Seoul, which is about an adopted French woman traveling to Korea to search for her biological parents, is Cambodia’s entry to the Oscars this year. Davy Chou, the director, is Franco-Cambodian. This is his second feature film after Diamond Island (2016). He also produced Cambodia’s excellent bid for the Oscars last year, white building (2021).

BEST SCENARIO

AUTOBIOGRAPHY

  • ★ Makbul Mubarak for “Autobiography” (Indonesia, Singapore, Philippines, Qatar, France, Poland, Germany)
  • Vahid Jalilvand for “Beyond the Wall” (aka “Shab, Dkheli, Divar”) (Iran)
  • Park Chan-wook, Chung Seo-kyeong for “Decision to Leave” (aka “Heojil kyolshim”) (Korea)
  • Darezhan Omirbayev for “Poet” (aka “Akyn”) (Kazakhstan)
  • Aktan Arym Kubat, Dalmira Tilepbergenova for “That’s What I Remember” (aka “Esimde”) (Kyrgyzstan, Japan, Netherlands, France).

A good year for Indonesia at APSA. The autobiography is a thriller about a cleaner for a politician. It premiered in Venice this year.

BEST CINEMATOGRAPHY

  • Batara Goempar for “Before, Now & Then” (Indonesia)
  • Lv Songye for “One and Four” (aka “Yige he Sige”) (China)
  • Boris Troshev for “Poet” (Kazakhstan)
  • Florent Herry for “Snow and the Bear” (aka “Kar ve Ay?”) (Turkey, Germany, Serbia)
  • ★ Niklas Lindschau for “The Stranger” (Syria, Germany, Palestinian Territories, Qatar)

the stranger was Palestine’s Oscar submission last year. It’s a drama about an unlicensed doctor in the Golan Heights and a wounded soldier he encounters. This is a first film for Ameer Fakher Eldin who is based in Germany but was born in Ukraine to Syrian parents.

BEST PERFORMANCE

Lee Jeong-eun stars in “OMAJU”

  • Happy Salma for “Before, Now and Then”
  • Navid Mohammadzadeh for “Beyond the Wall”
  • ★ Lee Jeong-eun for “Tribute” (also known as Omaju)
  • Aktan Arym Kubat for “That’s What I Remember”
  • John Lloyd Cruz for “When The Waves Are Gone”

Yes, it’s the same Lee Jeong-eun who was so excellent in Parasite (2019) as a maid/cook whom the protagonists conspire to get the wealthy couple out of employment. In this film, she plays a filmmaker who decides to restore an old film when she has no job of her own.

OTHER NON-COMPETITIVE PRICES

BEST NEW PERFORMANCE

  • ★ Park Ji-Min for “Return to Seoul”

FIAPF PRIZE 2022

AWARD FOR CULTURAL DIVERSITY UNDER THE PATROL OF UNESCO


  • ★ Muru (New Zealand) dir. Tearepa Kahi.

Muru is New Zealand’s Oscar nomination. Cliff Curtis (Fear the Walking Dead, Whale Rider) stars in this true story about a police chief torn between his people and his job when the government orders a raid on his community.

YOUNG CINEMA PRIZE IN PARTNERSHIP WITH NETPAC AND GFS

Saim Sadiq (via Instagram, left) and a memorable photo from his feature debut “Joyland” (right)

  • ★ Saim Sadiq for “Joyland” (Pakistan)

Pakistan’s Oscar submission, which we’re big fans of, recently made international headlines by being banished to his home but after the resulting outcry, the ban was reversed and it was allowed in theaters, so its Oscar eligibility was not in jeopardy after all. Director Saim Sadiq is only 31 and it’s a great start.

[ad_1]

As for my predictions, well, I picked the quarter-finalists correctly. I remember doing that a few years ago too. Here’s how it startedhere is where he went.

As for this week, here is where we are:

On the top corner left

The Yellow Jackets have just beaten North Cobb Christian 63-10, a callback to their 65-7 victory over East Jackson in the first round. No team scored more points in the first two rounds. Also, it’s the third game in a row, and fourth in the last five, that they’ve scored more than 60 points.

That’s what makes their clash with defending champions Fitzgerald, who edged a very tough Putnam County team 28-20, so intriguing. On paper, this game looks even. Both teams use a stable of more than five running backs to control the ball in the ground game. Both have championship level defenses. Both are used to the playoffs.

My gut tells me to stick with Fitzgerald, and I will since, duh, they’re my pick to win it all. But with the Jackets having to play 3A for the past two seasons, it might have been appropriate to drop out from a competitive balance standpoint, and the break they needed to get back to the title game, which they achieved in 2018 – the final season of their final 2A stint.

At the bottom left

The Bears look very much like a state champion, and they’re only two seasons away from that accolade, earning much less of a top 3A ranking. Against the only remaining No. 4 seed in the tournament, Berrien, the Bears posted the only shutout of the second round, winning 52-0.

They will face the Paladins, who ended ELCA’s remarkable 12-game quarterfinal streak with a 26-15 win in a game they controlled from start to finish. The Paladins have grown rapidly since the arrival of coach Tim McFarlin last season, and while championship expectations have been a tall order until very recently, they are realistic for the second year in a row.

If the Paladins are going to win this game, it will likely be a close, low-to-mid score. The Bears had 41.5 points and the Paladins averaged 29.83. If the Bears score at will, it would require a shootout for the Paladins to call, and that’s not a good situation for them. However, they have a strong enough defense to keep the score in the 28-24 range.

If the Paladins do it, I give them a 50/50 chance of winning. And with home advantage, it’s an achievable goal. If the Bears score at least 35 points, that should be enough for their defense to hold the lead, and they will advance. That’s what I’ll choose, since the Bears are advancing anyway.

Top right

Appling County once again looked great in the second round, this time against Northeast in a 35-13 victory. This follows a 65-13 hit from Washington County. The Pirates are yet another team with a solid defense, giving up an average of 11.18 points. They beat Pierce County 28-17, keeping the Bears at their lowest score of the season.

Now comes a Callaway team that is apparently still in the 2A quarterfinals. The Cavaliers outlasted Fannin County 20-13 at home in a game they trailed late and held with a defensive stance. It wasn’t a pretty win, but the Cavs were never one to go for style points. As always, they played an ultra-competitive out-of-region schedule, but this time they came out 0-3 for their worst start in 17 years. Again, no style points – just athletes, coaches and championship aspirations, every season.

Just move forward. It’s the only goal so far this season, and the Cavs have done it. And as I said in last week’s preview, they showed a tendency to play level with their competitors and shut down any game. I expect the same this week at home, but I’m not sure at this stage it’s enough to beat the Pirates.

I picked Callaway to win, so I’ll stick with that. Although last week’s game was a little tighter than expected — the Cavs were 13-point favorites — perhaps it was a reflection of the quality of a Fannin County team.

Which leads me to say that Fannin County was a much better team than the 6-4 record they took in the playoffs suggested. Despite the losses, the Rebels still showed flashes of last year’s quarterfinal team, with highlights including a 68-42 win over North Murray and the program’s first playoff victory over road, 28-13 against perennial playoff contender Athens Academy. They almost won second place in the playoffs.

At the bottom right

Thomson looked dominant in their 42-10 win over Cook. In fact, outside of their season-opening loss and a 15-14 victory over Laney in a game that was called off before four quarters could be completed, the Bulldogs have dominated the entire season. Averaging 42.25 points while giving up 7.5, they’ll head to undefeated South Atlanta in what might be the best and most exciting game of the quarterfinals.

The Hornets outscored Union County 42-14. Keyjuan Brown, chasing a second straight state rushing title, had 177 yards and touchdowns on 21 carries. He also threw for a 34-yard touchdown on his lone pass attempt.

The Bulldogs defense hasn’t seen a running back of Brown’s caliber this season, but to be fair, most 2A teams won’t. How they contain it will dictate what type of game it is. The Bulldogs will likely try to get everyone but Brown to beat them and they might have the talent on defense to execute. One would assume that this works to the Bulldogs’ advantage, and it can.

However, the Hornets have athletes aside from Brown who can wreak all kinds of havoc, even in the rematch. The question is whether those other offensive playmakers — quarterback Jontez Adams, TJ Summerall, Steven Moore and Nick Brown, among others — can step up enough for the Hornets to advance if Brown is choked out.

As mentioned earlier, the Hornets don’t use a placekicker for field goals and extra points, so there’s always a chance they’ll leave game-breaking points on the table.

If the Bulldogs can contain Brown — let’s define that as holding him within 100 yards on the ground and no more than two rushing touchdowns — that, coupled with the Hornets’ lack of kicking game, should be enough for them to win. However, if Brown breaks through the Bulldogs’ defense like he has against just about every other defense he’s faced over the past two seasons, I see the Hornets rallying around him and moving forward.

I think this game will be tight, and I think both teams will be able to score. I see something in the direction of a 42-35 game, but maybe that doesn’t give the defenses enough credit. I’m going to stick with the Hornets to advance to the next round, because it was my choice and because they have the talent to do it, with the home advantage on their side.

The first stopover of our Odyssey of the seas cruise takes us to Labadee.

Labadee is a private destination for Royal Caribbean (it’s not an island, more like a peninsula) and it’s usually a nice stop for some beach fun.

I don’t know what time we docked, but I do know that the “everything is clear” announcement woke me up. We didn’t intend to be the first to leave the ship, but we didn’t want to sleep all day either.

Before leaving the ship, we stopped at Cafe @ Two70 for a quick bite and coffee.

Cafe @ Two70 is similar to Park Cafe and offers specialty coffees, a bagel bar, and hot breakfast sandwiches. It’s also free.

The good thing about getting food at this location is that you can walk to Two70 and have a great view with your drink and food.

After taking food and caffeine, we left the ship.

The weather was superb and significantly less humid and hot than our previous visit in July.

We booked a cabana over the water at Barefoot Beach. I really like the convenient location, as well as the dedicated guest buffet area here.

I was surprised to see a few new water features added to Barefoot Beach, including an inflatable “Aquabana”. They also added floats, which the kids loved to give the islands a break.

I saw the floats at Perfect Day in CocoCay, but I’ve never seen the Aquabana before. Fun addition!

We spent the day relaxing at the beach and the water and air temperature was absolutely perfect. It was warm enough to be outside and swim without getting too hot.

It was 3:30 p.m. on board, so we finally made it back to the ship to shower and change.

I also took the opportunity to take a little nap before dinner.

Dinner was at Teppanyaki, and it’s my favorite hibachi of the entire fleet simply for the view.

Our chef, Ryan, was excellent and put on a great show. And the food was great too!

After dinner, I met the free-riding pianist in the elevator and saw a show on my ride!

After dinner, I returned to the cabin to do a live video on the RoyalCaribbeanBlog YouTube Channel. Connection dropped twice, but so far Odyssey’s internet has worked much better than Starlink on Independence or Allure of the Seas.

We went to Two70 to see the “Two70 Experience”, which is a technical demonstration of all the cool things technology can do in this space.

Hosted by the Cruise Director (Anna), she introduced Vistarama and Robo screen technology.

It went through several thumbnails and was really interesting to see how beautiful everything is.

After the show he was back at the pub for some music before bed.

Tomorrow we will be in La Romana, Dominican Republic.

wandering observation

Sorrento’s Pizza’s pepperoni is very different from other ships. It’s really big.

[ad_1]

Once he finally stepped onto the court last season in June, O outfield prospect Heston Kjerstad ripped it all up at Single-A Delmarva, batting .463 in 22 games. He didn’t produce similar numbers when he moved to High-A Aberdeen — yes, that would have been tough to do — but had another great run in the Arizona Fall League.

Kjerstad won the Joe Black MVP Award in the AFL, putting him in the same company as previous winners such as Nolan Arenado (2011), Kris Bryant (2013) and Ronald Acuña Jr. (2017). And Kjerstad’s strong performance in the AFL could mean he will start the 2023 season with Double-A Bowie and not return to Aberdeen.

“I would say that would be a smart guess,” O’s director of player development Matt Blood recently said of Kjerstad’s build-up to start next season.

In 43 games with the IronBirds in the regular season, he batted .233/.312/.362 with a .674 OPS, but his bat got heated in the final games of the season, and it carried over into the South Atlantic League. playoffs and in AFL play.

In 22 games at Arizona, Kjerstad, second overall to the Orioles in the 2020 MLB Draft, hit .357/.385/.622 with 1.007 OPS, nine doubles, one triple, five home runs and 17 RBIs. He led the AFL in hits (35), doubles, extra hits and total bases (61). He finished tied for third in home runs and RBIs, and was sixth in OPS.

“I just love that once he was healthy he played all season and went to Arizona and hit the ball hard,” Blood said. “A lot of extra hits. I’m just happy for him that he’s moving in the right direction and doing some exciting things for his future. Get ready for next year.”

Camping in Florida: The Orioles just completed the third of what they call Florida Complex League camps for players at their spring training facility in Sarasota, Florida. There will be other camps later. These camps, the last of which ends Nov. 17, don’t use the traditional instructional league model, but focus more on weight room training and skill development.

The last camp was made up of all the pitchers with this group present:

LHP Jared Beck
RHP Bradley Brehmer
RHP Trace Gloss
RHP Moises Chace
HRP Daniel Federman
RHP Harif Frias
RHP Chayce McDermott
HRP Trey Nordmann
RHP Juan Nuñez
RHP Alex Pham
RHP Jean Pinto
LHP Jose Ramirez
RHP Eris Rodriguez
RHP Juan Rojas
RHP Reese Sharp
RHP Peter Van Loon
RHP Cameron Weston

“It was a chance for our pitching coaches to do some very deliberate work with some specific players in terms of their developmental goals as they started their off-season training,” Blood said.

This can include a wide variety of aspects for pitchers – from improving spin rates and deliveries, to pitch shape and design and a better understanding of what their pitch arsenal should really look like. .

“A lot of different areas, but it really works on movement quality and areas of refinement that they need to improve on and also gives them clarity on how they should attack those things for the rest of the winter,” said he declared.

It’s a lot different than it was back when teams could check their players to get through their winter. It’s much more targeted.

“A lot of that comes from either the motion capture report or their TrackMan data,” Blood said.

Motion capture reports can be generated at the Orioles’ new pitching lab in Bel Air, Maryland, among other places. A kind of computer generation of body movements. It can create a full biomechanical report on how throwers move, what areas they need to focus on, how to make deliveries more efficient, and can even show areas producing red flags that could lead to future injury.

Asche still involved in the farm: The Orioles recently announced the addition of Cody Asche to their Big League team as an offensive strategy coach. And while Asche’s job now takes him to the major league level, that doesn’t mean he’s done with some minor league hitters. Asche could still check in with some farm hitters next year to provide advice, but not be physically there with them like he was last year.

Asche joined the Baltimore organization in 2022 as an upper-level hitting coordinator on the farm. He began his professional coaching career in 2021 as a hitting coach for the Clearwater Threshers, the Single-A affiliate of the Phillies. He played five seasons with the Phillies (2013-16) and the White Sox (2017).

“It’s not like we lost the person, we just kind of reassigned it,” Blood said. “He’s always going to communicate and engage with the minor league team. Just probably not as physically present. We’re very invested in those players, so he’ll always be an influence that way.”

Rockmart is a three-touchdown favorite over North Cobb Christian. Last week, NCC beat Columbia 14-6 as the 3-point favorite. The Jackets are back in 2A after two seasons in 3A, and with a win they will return to the quarterfinals for the first time since 2018, when they went 14-1 and finished second in 2A.

The Jackets will be looking to dominate the field, where they’ve carried the ball 351 times for 3,231 yards and 47 touchdowns. Five players have at least five rushing touchdowns, led by senior Cam Ferguson, who has 10 to go with 726 yards on 67 carries. Junior Brent Washington has nine touchdowns and 430 yards on 55 carries, and junior JD Davis and senior JoJo Haynes each have seven rushing touchdowns.

NCC is led by senior quarterback Matty Go, who has 58 of 102 passes for 988 yards and 10 touchdowns for three interceptions. Senior Jacob Cruz is his leading receiver with 24 catches for 481 yards and five touchdowns. Senior Jaden Coates is the team’s leading rusher with 724 yards and five touchdowns on 87 carries. Cruz also leads the defense with 90 tackles, 14.5 for loss. Sam Ayegunle has 8.5 sacks. NCC reached the quarterfinals another time, in 2018 as a member of 1A.

Fitzgerald and Putnam County both reached the quarterfinals last year. Highly favorite Cane will return for the fourth time in five years, seventh in the last nine and 12th in the last 15. You get the idea – they’re used to making the playoffs deep. Prior to last season, the War Eagles had not reached the quarter-finals since 1996.

At the bottom left

Maxwell projections:

  • Christian Community against ELCA -14
  • Pierce Co. vs. Berrien -24

The most relevant scenario in this quadrant is ELCA putting their streak of 12 straight quarter-finals on the line. All of the Eagles’ deep playoffs during the streak have come in Class 1A. Standing in their way is another 1A transplant at the Paladins with a four-way quarter-final streak.

Both teams reached the semi-finals last year, with FCS losing to Prince Avenue and ELCA losing to Trinity Christian. ELCA has plenty of upper-level talent – ​​the Eagles have seven seniors signed to DI schools – but are adjusting to a first-year coach, while FCS are in their second year under four-time Championship coach Tim McFarlin of state, and could be more advanced as a program.

Berrien will look to continue his unlikely run as the tournament’s only No. 4 seed, but will face big chances against the Bears, who are a hiccup loss to Appling County, which came in a game moved from his date originally planned, 11 years. -0. While the Rebels won their first playoff game in over 30 years, the Bears have progressed every year since 2016, reaching the semifinals last year and winning 3A the year before. Since their founding in 1954, the Rebels have reached the quarter-finals once, in 1991, and have never been further.

Top right

Maxwell projections:

  • Appling Co. vs. Northeast -18
  • Callaway vs. Fannin Co. -13

The Raiders are seeking back-to-back quarterfinals after never having gone this far in the program’s 52-year history. The Pirates would make three straight quarter-finals with a win after reaching the semi-finals last year in manager Jordan Mullis’ first season and the quarter-finals in 2020. Don’t be surprised if this game is much closer than expected as the Raiders are 1-1 against ranked teams this year, beating 3A’s No. 2 Carver 26-8 and losing to top-ranked Fitzgerald 28-27.

The Raiders must slow a Pirates offense averaging 53.5 points in their last two games, including 65 scored in the first round against Washington County.

Although Fannin County is a double-digit underdog, they have proven over the past three years under coach Chad Cheatham that they will be competitive in the playoffs. This is the third straight season the Rebels have improved. Additionally, Callaway has shown a tendency to downplay the level of competition in some instances where it is the more talented team. This game could be close

There are other instances, however, where the Cavs are rolling the competition, no matter how good. They started 0-3 and haven’t lost since. It would be the seventh straight quarterfinal appearance for the Cavs, who reached the semifinals last year following their 2020 championship.

The Rebels are looking for their third quarter-final appearance, the others coming in 1995 and 2020. They have never been further.

At the bottom right

Maxwell projections:

  • South Atlanta vs. Union Co. -21
  • Thomson vs. Cook -6

The Hornets and Panthers meet in a rematch of the first round of the 2019 2A playoffs, which the Panthers won 19-15 for their first-ever playoff win. This prevented the Hornets from winning their first-ever playoff game. The Hornets would progress the following year and they reached the quarter-finals last season, making it the third consecutive season they have progressed.

The Hornets have scored at least 30 points in all of their games this season, averaging 44.3 points, while their defense is only allowing an average of 14.5 points. The good news for the Panthers is that they can score points too, averaging 30 points. Whether they can stop Keyjuan Brown is another story, as well as a riddle that no other team has solved.

Although the Panthers have won only one playoff victory since their founding in 1957, they reached the quarter-finals twice, in 1972 and 1973, winning regional games.

Thomson and Cook should deliver the marquee game in Round 2. Both teams can score – Thomson is averaging 42 points, Cook is averaging 36 – but Thomson’s defense is what stands out and should be the difference. The Bulldogs are allowing just 7.27 points per game and have won their last three games against Glenn Hills, Westside and first-round opponent Tattnall County, a combined 139-0.

It would be Thomson’s second consecutive quarter-final appearance after reaching the 3A quarters last year. Cook is looking for his first quarter-final appearance since 2010.

Pennsylvania native Kendra Feather came to Virginia for college in the 90s and has never looked back. Today, she owns three charming and thriving neighborhood restaurants, Garnett’s Café in the Fan, The Roosevelt in Church Hill and Laura Lee’s on the South Side. Feather sold its top spot, popular vegetarian joint, Ipanema Café, in 2020 – and was also one of the founding partners of WPA Bakery.

We caught up with Feather and her husband and business partner, John Murden, to discuss how things have changed for the couple — and the Richmond dining scene — over the past four decades since Style started posting reviews. , news and in- depth profiles.

As you would expect, this is yet another story of an industry profoundly altered by technology, rapidly changing cultural trends, and different generational trends and habits.

Kendra’s Feather: It’s ridiculous to say now, but I wanted to be a writer for Rolling Stone. I was a journalism student at VCU and did a three-year internship at Sony Music. I’ve worked for Epic and Columbia Records, as well as some smaller record labels. At the time of graduation, I didn’t end up being hired by the company I worked for. But through it all, I waited for tables.

When I opened Ipanema Café [1998] there was no social media – we just opened our doors and waited for someone to come by. It was word of mouth and food reviews, which I think carried a lot more weight back then. Get a food review in the local paper? It would freak you out for a few weeks.

Restaurant reviews were more crucial without social media. It was the three main ones: the Times Dispatch, the Style and the Richmond Magazine. And there were the main popular restaurants like Mamma Zu’s, Millie’s, Helen’s. People were waiting two, two and a half hours to get a table at these places. There just weren’t as many places to go, it was a different environment than it is now. Back then, we could get away with a lot of things. When I opened Ipanema, we had a plywood bar! And no one cared about it. Now you are supposed to fully open polite.

  • Inside the Roosevelt at Church Hill.

John Murde: It was a rougher, dirtier, crustier place. The Grace Street Context [location of Ipanema Café] was different. There was a strip club, a theater. It was just different.

KF: Grace Street was not a desirable place at the time. But it was so much fun going to rock shows – it wasn’t upscale at all. Downtown VCU is very different than it was back then. The thing with restaurants now is: is it Instagrammable? People will go to a restaurant because they saw a piece of neon or a nice wallpaper.

JM: We’ll put a picture of the dessert on Garnett’s Instagram and we’ll have people within the hour saying, “I saw that cake.”

KF: It’s a great tool, and luckily John has always been ahead of his time with technical stuff. It helped me modernize my Gmail account. He was always one of the first to adopt everything. In the beginning, between the two of us, we could understand social media and how it works…now that we are older we have staff who are digital native; they grew up with it.

by Garnett [2009] open to the age of blogs and bloggers. My brother was living here at the time and we had just opened and we were standing there and he looks at me and says, “Oh wait. We forgot to tell anyone we were going to open. We didn’t have laptops, so we had to run and log into a physical computer and post the news on Facebook. The RVA News blog came to lunch and boom! All the bloggers have passed. Many of these blogs don’t really exist anymore.

The Roosevelt [2011] caught the wave of Southern cuisine, and for some reason at the time, Richmond as a food destination just hit. Church Hill was booming as a neighborhood and we happened to be the restaurant that opened there. We were also doing a strictly Virginia wine list at the time, so that’s what got us into the magazines, that list made us a little bit different. When we opened The Roosevelt, we were in the right place at the right time. Suddenly, people were interested in Richmond in a way that didn’t involve the Confederacy.

  • Kendra Feather owns some of Roosevelt’s popular ham cookies.

With Laura Lee [2016] it kind of moved around the neighborhood and opened up, it didn’t really catch a wave.

JM: The common point was that for each place, we aimed to open a neighborhood spot. They all hit in their own way. And today, the culture of every place is great – we don’t have the screaming chef thing. I was a line cook at the time, so I saw chefs screaming. That was one of the conversations we had when we really got into this question, “How can we have a good, sustainable culture?” “I think that’s one of the overall changes we’ve seen [in the scene].

KF: I recently posted something on Instagram asking people for podcasts and book suggestions on best management practices. I got some interesting responses. Some people were like “Why?” and others said, “Here’s a list,” and still others said, “You don’t need that shit.” I think it’s interesting. My belief is that I’m as flawed as anyone, and I’m self-taught, so I try to find information out there and read up on stuff. I recently read an article on “How do you as a GenX boss meet the needs of Gen Y employees?” I have to remember that millennials were raised with access to social media from an early age – it affects you and your background, and what the world was like around you growing up. It is sometimes difficult to take all this into consideration. You have to stop and say, “Oh, maybe they didn’t grow up believing that thing to be true.

JM: I have employees who are 20 years old. The last six years of their lives have been Trump and COVID. It’s tough man.

KF: I discovered that millennials like to collaborate, so it’s important to find a way for everyone to have a say, but also to never let go of the helm. I try to have a little patience and let people make small mistakes, but no damaging mistakes. It’s delicate.

JM:As for more restaurants? We have a 9 year old and three places to run, so we are busy. But Kendra’s brain is still thinking, “Oh maybe this restaurant would work here.” She invents them, whether we end up opening them or not.

“Cue the music”…the circus calliope plays in the background.

I “walk on a wire, on a wire, the show must go on!” “Entrance of the Gladiators” by composer Julius Fucik, written in 1897, provides the circus walk leading to the introduction to 3 Dog Night’s 1974 hit, “The Show Must Go On.” Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, turn your attention to the central arena as this blog highlights some of the best art exhibits of the year.

The West Shore art scene has won accolades from galleries from Mechanicsburg to Carlisle, and even York, for half a dozen of the best with enough fanfare to fill the marquee or at least the galleries in which they have been featured.

Artwork by Tina Berrier for “Tangled Up in Blue”

Starting with Metropolis CollectiveThe two shows of the year from gallery director Hannah Dobek and owner Richard Reilly celebrated their 10th anniversary with two blockbusters. Winter’s “Tangled Up in Blue” and Summer’s “Habitat, Environmental Reflections” proved that Metropolis, once seen as an offbeat alternative gallery, still retains its forward-thinking approach to art and design. music, but its popularity today draws crowds from all over. . “Blue” was dramatized, detailed, and delivered throughout the spacious gallery with great foresight and deliberation on the part of the skillful and confident Dobek. Gathered by his intuitive and instinctive vision, the exhibition tour was not only insightful but thought-provoking and provided a direct narrative of how an exhibition with a compelling theme should unfold. Painting the East Coast, Dobek gathered a cavalcade of creatives, capturing the blue vibe as well as the color. A blue moon showed up for opening night to reveal a party atmosphere that featured poet/singer Donna Jean Foster as the musical accompaniment on stage. Among the artists featured were Paul Nagle, one of the seven animated artists, as well as Emily Paige, Alexis Manduke, Jude Screnzi, Jamison Eckert, Nina Rubin Mantione and Ms. Dobek.

Work by Joanne Landis for “Habitat”

As the calendar moved into its second half, Metropolis opened July with a bang. “Habitat” and its works argued that, even with all of our differences, humanity is still connected by caring for each other and the inherent condition we share as humans. Sometimes detached by the earth and the space in a way, we maintain a community of life. Local artists included the highly respected Joanne Landis, Matthew Ziegler and Bonnie Lorey, as well as Mantione and Dobek. Beyond the Zone, a diverse list revealed that Sean Matthews, Amy Asher and Hailey Patrick, as well as Screnzi and Eckert, have made new contributions to Habitat. The Metropolis sequel will wait until 2023, as “Wintry Mix 7” will be edited in early winter.

Ceramic artists Kirsten Olson, Janelle Hoch and Amy LeFever for “At the Table”

Carlisle Arts Learning Center the gallery’s director, Cathy Stone, recently became its executive director. In 2022, she created consecutive stellar exhibitions with “At the Table”, associated with “In Full Chroma”. The two shows in one proved that Stone was a maestro at orchestrating dramatic pairings. “At the Table” featured a trio of skilled artisans who are also close friends. They have raised the bar by setting the table for the holiday season with exquisite, hand-forged and turned pottery, elevating tableware to a new gold standard. Their collective efforts graced the GB Stuart Gallery, worthy of the royal crowds of spectators who turned out in droves to see CALC transformed “into a dining experience born in a mansion”. Three compatriots, Kirsten Olson, Amy LeFever and Janelle Hoch, all bring different but complementary skills to their ceramic creations. Of the trio, Ms. LeFever provided the backdrop/decor with three-dimensional bas-relief wall installations. Each piece is the same design, but it is their placement that uniquely presents the whole. Ingeniously matched, they become a modern model for a timeless tradition. Kirsten Olson’s love and appreciation for images and stories of the Far North is reflected in her utilitarian vases, vessels and tableware. They contain more than food and drink as their beauty reflects a pure sense of community and culture. Janelle Hoch completes the trio’s “At the table” exhibition with her turned porcelain, favoring sharing meals with friends and family as a favorite pastime. Janelle hand sculpts her graceful forms with dramatic patterns. What placed the exhibit above the bar was a visual tour de force, transporting viewers to an atmosphere of intimate dining down to the smallest detail. To balance the ground floor gallery, three painters claimed attention upstairs “In Full Chroma”. Jonathan Frazier, one of seven animated artists, showcased New Orleans shotgun shacks in understated tones suited to the French Quarter vibe. Geoffrey Thulin’s dramatically detailed watercolors and gouache portray a sense of urgency, bringing energy to the surface of the canvas. Rounding out the group is Thom Kulp, an abstract practitioner of pattern and design with his geometric progressions completing the equation. Block printing, mandala drawing and collage are all part of her repertoire. Collectively, their use of vibrant colors draws you into a kaleidoscope of magical possibilities.

Artwork by Andrea Finch for unCommon Threads

To kick off fall, Peg Belcastro and Gail Walden Coleman ruled downstairs with their dueling explosions of color in their “Heartscapes and Landscapes” exhibit. As Coleman proudly wears his art on his sleeve, painting from a deeply emotional perspective propels his abstract ideas leading to canvases that are both creative and intricate. Belcastro inhabits his landscape paintings with a bravery of bright, bold colors. Upstairs, “unCommon Threads” broke new ground with the abundant expanse of textile art, demonstrating emphatically tough bravery put forth by 30 artists, each an expert in their respective medium. Visionary local artisan, Joh Ricci of the Fairfield Valley, won ‘Best of Show’ honors with his mind-blowing designs that are both eclectic and very colorful. Another local flavor for the most innovative use of the material honored Rebecca Fox of Carlisle.

From “Mycotopia” to Hive artspace

York came all roses for HIVE artspace. Gallery owner Susan Scofield, throughout the year, puts the White Rose City on the map of the art scene. Susan creates ‘new beginnings’ associated with white roses through a new thematic exhibition changing monthly, regularly bringing visitors to the doors of her intimate gallery. Imagine a hobbit’s hovel as Hive artspace proves time and time again that great things come out of small neighborhoods. Two standout shows from a list of 12 to choose from were “Shades of Green” in March and “Mycotopia” in August, which captured our full attention with artists from yesteryear submitting work from their East Coast swing. A talented who’s who included local favorites Tina Berrier, Tara Poe, Heather Greenough, Julian Langeheine, Kate Durgin, Savannah Schroll Guz, Jen Simon and Kelly Nevin. In March, men “wearing green” called on Jim Hively, Mark Broomell, Andrew Smith, Michael Hower, Charlie Hubberd and Lex Rickabaugh who together brought home a lucky charm for shoppers to take home. Susan Scofield, time and time again, takes on the task of Hercules out of sheer force of will, putting on a dozen new shows each year and selling an incredible amount of artwork from each. Over a year, it adds to the value of a gallery’s art.

Seeing these shows firsthand with the glamor and excitement of opening night was well worth the price of admission, except all were free to view. In other words, whether it’s circus lexicon or Mastercard… experience: invaluable.

November dates to note: “Art and Motherhood” at CALC until December 3 is a solo exhibition of the artistic talent of Pamela J. Black and her “assistants”.

3rd in Bourg, November 18, All Around Town and Odd Ones Bizarre at milling Nov. 26, Shop Small Business Saturday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
