March 7th, 2012 is Holi! It is first a Hindu spring festival celebration but it is also known as the festival of colours. The main day is celebrated by people throwing scented powder and perfume at each other. Bonfires are lit on the eve of the festival (more info on Wikipedia).
Now compare how a movie showed Holi in 1981 (“Silsila“):
With a movie showing a Holi celebration in 2010 (“Action_Replayy“):
In Belgium, at least two celebrations are planned:
- one in Leuven, organised by ISAL, on March 10th, 2012;
- the other one in Brussels, organised by InBAG, on March 24th, 2012.
After Elephants Dream and Big Buck Bunny, the Blender Foundation released Sintel. Technically, I think it’s superb. IMHO, the only negative point is, as for the two previous films, the story is rather minimal but it’s becoming better and better. But this doesn’t prevent me from enjoying watching it!
