She has had the privilege of living and studying in some of the best film cities in the world—Paris, Bombay, New York. She explores the ways through which political forces interact with art and culture, particularly focusing on modes of intercultural communication, for better or for worse. She is most interested in how film industries represent national identity, particularly its process of ascribing "authenticity," and how the resulting signification affects international relations.

Feeling disenchanted with this year's prospects

I didn’t want to read it. There’s something about yet another man writing about sexual violence towards women that brings shivers down my spine. I admit, I had been afraid of the Almodovar-esque female characters, strong yet always the victim; another series of women who fall in love with their oppressors and/or captors. The original Swedish title made me cringe, the direct translation into English being Men Who Hate Women (2005). I didn’t want anything to do with men who hate women, nor did I want to read about them for 600 plus pages.

I left the theatre feeling somewhat disappointed. After seeing Phyllida Lloyd’s new film, The Iron Lady (2011), I hadn’t really learned much about our protagonist, Margaret Thatcher. I had wondered how Lloyd would fit the long, significant life of the first female prime minister of the United Kingdom into a mere 105 minutes. Armed with Meryl Streep and Jim Broadbent as her leads, I was sure that the result would be spectacular.

With its growing popularity comes growing discomfort

Adam Curtis produced The Power of Nightmares (2004), a three part BBC series, right smack in the middle of George W. Bush’s “war on terror.” I recently re-discovered the documentary series, and have been wondering whether its message is still relevant, or whether the neoconservative agenda will gently fade into the memory of the turn of the millennium.
