Mezipatra 2017 – Tom of Finland review

Tom of Finland is a surprisingly light-hearted biopic of the artist behind the revolutionary Tom of Finland cartoons. A good opener for the 18th Mezipatra Queer Film Festival and a strong foundation for this year's 'Be Your Own Champion' motto.

Mezipatra QFF: The Ornithologist review

The Ornithologist is an experimental film by award winning Portuguese director João Pedro Rodrigues (The Last Time I Saw Macao) about one man’s journey to sainthood through the Portuguese wilderness. Gorgeous cinematography and dynamic use of sound make this an absolute treat for the senses even if the narrative is somewhat confusing at times - ok, so it’s extremely confusing at times but somehow I think that was the whole point.
