Read “Karen Han’s Bong Joon Ho: Dissident Cinema” in The Brooklyn Rail

For The Brooklyn Rail, I reviewed Karen Han’s new book, “Bong Joon Ho: Dissident Cinema.” The book is a fascinating glimpse into the background of the Oscar-winning “Parasite” director’s filmography and process.

In the same issue, you can also find an amusing list of films—you may have heard of the new Sight and Sound list of the greatest films in history, but have you heard of The Brooklyn Rail’s “Greatest Films You’ll Never See”?

It was fun to participate in this list of classic (but nearly impossible to watch) films!

Upcoming lecture at CVAR: “The City In-Between: Competing visions for the image of Limassol”

As my last big initiative in Cyprus this year, I’ll be giving a presentation on some of my Fulbright research at 6:30 pm on Thursday, June 16 in the CVAR museum in the old city of Nicosia.

The lecture is titled, “The City In-Between: Competing visions for the image of Limassol,” and consists of a narrative collage about the Cypriot city which has rapidly transformed from a sleepy seaside village into the “Dubai of the Mediterranean.” The lecture is co-organized by the CVAR, the Cyprus Institute, and held with the support of the Active Citizens Fund. If you’re in Cyprus, I hope to see you there!

Read “The End of Moria?” in The Nassau Weekly

Many thanks to The Nassau Weekly for publishing a follow-up essay to a piece I wrote on the refugee crisis in Greece four years ago, a crisis which has recently entered an even more precarious phase given the Coronavirus. Thanks also to the Nass for inviting me to speak at their virtual open mic earlier this month. Read the new piece, “The End of Moria? Looking back on migration-crisis reporting in Greece as a college student,” here.
