Review: Humbird – Pharmakon

Named after a small dot of a town in central Wisconsin, Humbird is the creative guise of Siri Undlin, a singer-songwriter from Minneapolis. After a series of well-received EPs and extensive touring (either solo, as part of a duo or with a full band), Humbird has now released her first full-length album, Pharmakon (the concept that something can either be a poison or a cure, depending on how much is consumed).

Review: I Choose Elena by Lucia Osborne-Crowley Rating 88%

Review: I Choose Elena by Lucia Osborne-Crowley

A significant essay, published by The Indigo Press, is Lucia Osborne-Crowley's I Choose Elena, which was mostly about the insidious effect that trauma can have on the physical make-up of the body. Aged 15 and on track to be an Olympic gymnast, she was violently raped on a night out. The injuries she sustained that evening ended her gymnastics career, and eventually manifested in life-long chronic illnesses, which medical professionals now believe can be caused by untreated trauma.

Review: The Souvenir

Joanna Hogg’s The Souvenir shows that not every bad relationship makes good cinema. Introduced for selected screenings in Glasgow by the charity-funded project Reclaim the Frame, which supports female-directed works, this widely acclaimed film teases with an exciting cast and artistic sensitivity. But while watching the film, I found the awkward script, uncritical depiction of class and static characterisation hard to chew and left the cinema with an upset stomach full of second-hand embarrassments.
