Panic Bodies #

Released 10/27/2003

Description: "Panic Bodies is a 70-minute, six-part exploration of the methods we experience the body's betrayals: disease, decline and death. The movie is a panorama of emotionally charged recollections of strange relatives and estranged siblings, staged recreations of fast-fading pasts and private mythologies, and reflections on the anxious states created by the body's fragile claims on time and space. It's about being a stranger in your own skin. Panic Bodies perfects the phantom quality of any nice work about mourning, but it is not reducible to that. It is also enlivened by the intimacy that comes from having made a spectacle of private secrets." (Kathleen Pirrie Adams, Xtra)

Description: With this first feature, Adam and Zack Khalil reinvent the historical narrative in the form of a kaleidoscopic and conjecture-rich essay. Their work makes their community, in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, resonate with the ancient Ojibway prophecy of the seven fires, a premonition of the comeback of white people. Using video effects, animation and off-kilter editing, and combining testimonials, experimental sequences and performances, the filmmakers brilliantly demolish linear filmic narrative – not to mention the Western idea of history. Overflowing with inventiveness, INAATE/SE/ revives traditional spirituality and culture, confronts an obfuscated colonial reality, and works toward building a modern identity.

The effect is a series of visually powerful and intimate scenes from Afghanistan. The disturbing ignorance of the two mates from Sweden is as relevant as the meeting with the Afghan folks and their culture.

Meet McGonegal Reviews:

This inspirational short movie developed by the U.S. Units helped a lot of disabled veterans in dealing with their actual case without their members, and among them there was Harold Russell, greatest known for his Oscar winning role in "The Greatest Years of Our Lives". Russell was a military who lost both hands during a training exercise and soon on watched this film, which presents a WWI veteran who also lost his hands and how he deals with everyday routine while using metal hooks. Russell's short movie "Diary of a Sergeant" uses clips from this short movie to present how significant the experience of seeing it made his life more positive and helpful. "Meet McGonegal" presents Charles McGonegal, a fight veteran dealing with common case in each person's life such as dressing himself up, eating and drinking but from a limited perspective since the boy instead of hands uses of hooks to perform those actions. Through a long rehabilitation process he managed to master his test with the hooks, performing each possible action and living a normal life. So, with this movie you receive a sense of how life and science/engineering development was back then. Today, disabled veterans and others have access to more advanced prosthetics that look related to hands, arms and legs. But despite the usual 'commercial type of thing' the movie had to test to present, with some distortions on the way, I praise its effort to instate and bring quality and positive effort in the lives of many folks out there during the period and again including Mr. Russell, who went to deliver one of the best movie performances of all time in William Wyler's classic. As evidenced in "Diary of a Sergeant", Russell was all down and out with his life, then this film was shown to him and a various perspective was brought to him. Like McGonegal, he mastered his hooks for a nice time, participated in a nice movie and won some awards for it (2 Oscars now and for the same role), graduated from college and led a successful life, everytime carrying that nice large smile of his. So, when a movie carries such a massive weight to the mission where an individual moves to accomplish something fresh and finds a various meaning to his or her life, I guess you must approve it in any way. We aspire that movies can be exactly like that sometimes. To create a difference in people's lives. This one certainly did. 9/10
