I’m currently attending the East End Film Festival which takes place in various cinemas around East London, from June 25 to July 10th. I have been impressed so far with the mixture of documentaries short films and features, yesterday I even cried (at a film)
I will be reviewing everything I have seen for Hotminute but I wanted to share my top picks so far;
The Man Who’s mind Exploded: A documentary film directed by Toby Amies about Drako Oho Zarrhazar. A man who once modelled for Salvador Dali; was involved in 3 severe accidents, and loves surrounding himself with images of naked men. He’s also suffering from degenerative Amnesia, lives on his own and is very stubborn. ‘A story about mental illness, memory, art, cocks, faith and love’ it’s not an easy watch, but Drako is a fantastic subject.
