more cellphone flix from Metroer
Last spring we and others reported on the First Annual Cellphone Film Festival held by the Shanghai magazine Metroer. Now you can check out the latest entries at the homepage of Metroer’s Third Annual Cellflix Festival (yes, I know, what happened to the second”? perhaps we were wrong last time!). They define cellflix as short pieces of a few minutes that are either captured via cell phones or can be directly downloaded and viewed on cell phones.
There you can see short pieces like The Time of Our Singing, by btr who also made last year’s memorable Shanghai Freak. The Time of Our Singing showcases a number of different venues where Chinese people are singing, from subterranean pedestrian busker to karaoke bar. Quite nice.
Here we see a pair of middle-aged women singing revolutionary songs from their youth.
Not to be missed: “Marv’s” Back in the Saddle with group shakerees by a bunch of exercise enthusiasts on the street in China.
