The sixth day of the 77ª Mostra internazionale d’arte cinematografica di Venezia, the Venice Film Festival, proved far busier, with very topical works being premièred. The Corradi Cinema Lounge at the Ausonia Hungaria hotel hosted Violante Placido and Alessio Boni, who feature in Diego Botta’s Revenge Room, a very relevant tale about revenge porn and the proliferation of content on the web. Also present at the lounge was director Alice Rohrwacher, who directed Omelia contadina (Peasant Homily), highlighting the disappearance of agriculture, with some startling images.
   The cast of Fabrizio Maria Cortese’s comedy Free Liberi also popped by the Corradi Cinema Lounge, including Sandra Milo, Corinne Cléry, Enzo Salvi, Antonio Catania and Ivano Marescotti; as did the cast of Spaccapietre—una promessa, including Licia Lanera. Danish filmmakers Frederik Loui Hviid and Anders Ølholm, who directed Shorta, dealing with the killing of 19-year-old Talib Ben Hassi while in custody, were also guests. The duo say that their film is not political, but one of hope.
   Finally, also attending were Michele Mellara and Alessandro Rossi, whose 50—Santarcangelo Festival deals with the changing trends in theatre and society as seen through the festival.
   Celebrities spotted on the red carpet included Eleonora Gaggero, Nina Verdelli and Alessio Boni, and Baby K.

The Corradi Cinema Lounge at the 77ª Mostra internazionale d’arte cinematografica di Venezia, the Venice Film Festival played host to Gia Coppola, niece of Francis Ford Coppola, and Romola Garai and Susanna Nicchiarelli (Miss Marx) on day five.
   Coppola directs Mainstream, which she calls a ‘satirical fable’ about young Angelinos who aim to create viral content on YouTube, with parallels to earlier films such as Network.
   Director Peter Marcias (Nilde Lotti, the Time of Women), film critic Nick Vivarelli, and Brazilian singer–songwriter Caetano Veloso (Narciso Em Fèrias) also had stints at the Lounge.

Vans × Simpsons collection pays homage to long-running cartoon series

Filed by Lucire staff/August 6, 2020/4.59


The Simpsons might not be part of the cultural Zeitgeist in the same way it was in the early 1990s, but over the last 30 years it’s built up a immense following—enough for it to remain a tempting licensing target. Vans is the latest, and arguably one of the higher-profile, fashion brands to pay tribute to Springfield’s yellow-skinned family, with a collection of footwear, apparel and accessories.
   The Simpsons family appears on the Sk8-Hi shoes, both in their original form from The Tracey Ullman Show and in their definitive form once they were spun off into their own series; individual characters can be found on Old Skool and Sk8-Hi designs. There are Lisa Simpson items with ‘Lisa Simpson for president’ slogans; a Sk8-Lo shoe design features Bart Simpson’s ‘El Barto’ graffiti tag. Subsidiary characters get a look-in, too, with Krusty the Klown, the Bouvier sisters, Otto, Moe, Lenny, Carl and Barney, and even Itchy and Scratchy, and Blinky the three-eyed fish. Socks, caps, fleece hoodies, and T-shirts complete the collection.
   In New Zealand, the collection will be available from August 15. More information can be found at vans.co.nz/thesimpsons.






 


Samsung reveals five powerful Galaxy devices for work and play

Filed by Lucire staff/August 5, 2020/22.22




Korean giant Samsung has announced five new devices: two Galaxy smartphones (the Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra), two tablets (Tab S7 and S7+), the Galaxy Watch 3, Galaxy Buds Live (wireless earbuds), and a next-generation foldable smartphone (Galaxy Z Fold 2).
   The new entrants emphasize power and innovation, making Samsung a technophile’s dream. The Note 20s are made for work and play, coming with an enhanced S Pen, said to be more lifelike and accurate for those wanting to jot down ideas on their phones. The Note 20 phones are also designed to work more seamlessly with Windows 10, including syncing with various Microsoft programs.
   The phones have ultra-low latency 5G, wifi 6 optimization, 120 Hz displays, and an aspect ratio of 21:9. The cameras can film in 8K at 24 fps, and the pro mode can take shooting to 120 fps in full high-def. The Note 20s can connect wirelessly to smart TVs using Samsung DeX.
   Batteries are designed to last all day, and 50 per cent charge can be obtained in half an hour.
   The Ultra’s Infinity-O screen measures 6·9 inches, using Quad HD+ Dynamic AMOLED, with a resolution of 3,088 by 1,440 pixels, for a pixel depth of 496 ppi. The regular Note 20 comes close, with 6·7 inches and a Super AMOLED Plus Infinity-O display with a 2,400 by 1,080 resolution (393 ppi).
   The tablets also refresh at 120 Hz, with the Tab S7+ featuring a 12·4-inch Super AMOLED display. The regular Tab S7 measures 11 inches. They also have an improved S Pen and can be used to extend a PC’s display.
   The Watch 3 is slimmed-down and has enhanced health information, with Samsung promising a blood oxygen feature, where one can measure and track oxygen saturation. There is a running analysis program, and VO2 Max follows one’s cardio progress.
   The Galaxy Buds Live are wireless and comfortable earbuds, and feature 12 mm speakers. Samsung says they will play deeper, richer sounds thanks to their bass ducts. They also feature active noise cancellation.
   Finally, the Galaxy Z Fold 2 is the best of both a smartphone and a tablet. It features two nearly bezel-less Infinity-O displays, with the cover screen measuring 6·2 inches and the main screen 7·6 inches.

Lady Gaga is now officially the face of one of Valentino’s perfumes, the upcoming Voce Viva, by creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli with Valentino Beauty.
   The new campaign breaks in September with the perfume’s release.
   â€˜Lady Gaga means freedom, self-consciousness, pure hear,’ said Piccioli. ‘Her participation in this campaign elevates the symbolic power of the project to the highest level. She is the icon of a generation. Her message of freedom, passion for art, self-consciousness and equality is the same our Valentino community stands for. I am so proud for having her in.’
   On the new scent, the house said in a release, ‘Imagined as a voice to spread a message around the world, Valentino Voce Viva invites everyone to touch hearts, inspire others and live their dreams. Expressing the Maison’s values of inclusivity and individuality, Voce Viva celebrates one of the women’s most intimate sense.’
   Lady Gaga, already a modern-day icon and the only artist to receive an Oscar, Grammy, BAFTA and Golden Globe in the same year (for A Star Is Born), has recently released ‘Rain on Me’, a duet with Ariana Grande, and created her own beauty line.
   The star said in the release, ‘Be yourself, love who you are, and never give up your dreams.’
