“I hope there will be an Arab wave of cinema. There’s a lot happening in our countries, and it’s important to show a different image than what you see on the television or in the news.”

We’re still spotlighting Tribeca selections helmed by women directors every day of Women’s History Month. Throughout the month of March, you’ve seen films by acclaimed talents like Bette Gordon, Nicole Holofcener, Mira Nair, Sarah Polley, and Kelly Reichardt.

Leyla Bouzid is a filmmaker who absolutely deserves to join their ranks. In her 2016 festival selection As I Open My Eyes, Bouzid follows a Tunisian teen who shirks her studies and disobeys her mother to take the mic as rock goddess in a local band. This is a tuneful and incisive gem about a young artist at the cusp of a personal and political revolution that should be sought out and relished by all.

Happy Birthday!

誕生日おめでとう、うめこ
いつも思ってるけど、生まれてきてくれて本当にありがとう
君はいつだって僕の一番の癒しで心の支えです
君が生まれた日のことも君を迎え入れた日のことも一緒にいろんなとこへ行ったことも辛い日にそっと寄り添ってくれたことも全部全部覚えてるよ
後もう2〜30年、今のまま元気でいっしょにいられるのなら僕はもう生涯恋人ができなくて一人ぼっちだってかまわない。って本気で思ってるくらい大好きだよ
だから今年も変わらず元気で可愛いめっちゃんでいてね
今日はお誕生日おめでとう
素敵な12歳にしようね

my teacher told me that dead relatives are no reason to slack off (which i wasn’t doing) and then my tea mug shattered (which i did do) and now i’m eating rice cakes and contemplating whether or not i should watch paranorman and pretend like it wasn’t a terrible day

then i’ll get some writing done because there are prompts to be finished!
