A televised singing talent show where appearances don’t matter and the competitors are judged on their voice alone. That’s the concept of NBC’s hit show “The Voice”, but a more accurate description is; a show where all your favourite singers with unique voices and stories will be eliminated in the second round, leaving only white, […]

A conflict has been percolating for some time, between the responsibility of art in a violent world, and the idea that art has no responsibilities. Slightly different from the idea of censorship, manifestations of this conflict have lead left-wing protestors (typically anti-censorship) to do things like boycott an X-Men film (ostensibly a children’s film) because […]

The 2019 Cannes Film Festival market is gaining national attention this year because of a movie poster that features the decapitated head of Donald Trump. The film, a science-fiction B-movie homage entitled “When Women Rule the World,” is the directorial debut of writer-director-producer Sheldon Silverstein. The poster features a woman holding Trump’s head, complete with the president’s trademark red Make America Great Again hat. According to the official website for “When Women Rule the World,” the film takes place in 2121 after Donald Trump has caused the apocalypse by starting World War III. Trump drove the world into chaos after a disagreement with Russian leader Vladimir Putin over who has the bigger penis. The official synopsis reads: “Reality-show mogul Michael Bray and his Russian fiancé, Maria Putin — along with Susan Tolby, Michael’s tough associate producer, and Jon Dawson, brilliant nerd and social media guru — are driving to Las Vegas to begin production of their latest TV series, ‘Showgirl Wars.’ They blunder into a time vortex and are transmitted to the future, 2121 A.D, after Trump has pushed the button, and World War Three and climate change have decimated life on earth.” Silverstein has described his film as a satire, but the image of a decapitated Donald Trump isn’t being universally accepted across America. The image recalls Kathy Griffin’s controversial photos in which she posed with Trump’s bloody head. The backlash Griffin faced led to death threats against her. CNN even fired her from her annual gig hosting the network’s New Year’s Eve coverage with Anderson Cooper. “When Women Rule the World” was at the Cannes market looking for a distributor. Silverstein screened footage for potential buyers but the movie has yet to be acquired. The poster is one of few politically-charged moments to come out of the 2019 Cannes Film Festival, which has largely remained focused on the films and not global headlines. The festival runs through Saturday, May 25. Check out the poster for “When Women Rule the World” below, plus watch the movie’s official trailer.

How is it thinkable that a populist, controversialist TV presenter ends up being able to influence politics on a national scale? The fact that Elia Kazan’s A Face in the Crowd was released almost sixty years before Trump got the keys to the White House is a sobering reminder that we should have seen this […]
