INDIEWIRE ON THE FLAHERTY: James Kreul covers the Flaherty at Duke University: " [Artur] Peleshian suggested that there was, in fact, no repetition in his films -- that when the same image reappears, the shot is not the same because of its new context."

FILM NUTS: FROM APPALACHIA TO ASIA
Steve Fesenmaier
Graffiti, January 24, 2005

L. Somi Roy, a well-known, NYC-based media programmer, wrote a great account of a March, 2003 exchange trip by several Appalshop filmmakers to Chengdu, the capital of Sichuan Province in China. Earlier, Roy had arranged for filmmaker Les Blank to travel to Indonesia and to bring Chinese filmmakers Bibo Liang and Liu Xiaojin to Appalshop. (Read at www.persimmon-mag.com/summer2003/feature1.htm.) Of related interest is "Blind Shaft," a new Chinese film about coal miners in China, that was the most popular film at last spring's Robert DeNirs Tribeca Film Festival. Five thousand miners died in China last year. In a recent New York Times article about Zhou Hai, a Chinese photographer who documents the price his country's workers (including coal miners) have paid for their Great Leap Forward, Hai said "China is a bit like Western countries in 1920s and 1930s."
