Political attacks on Brazilian film a reminder: there's no such thing as bad publicity
Huffington Post - 4 months
The director and stars of 'Aquarius' protest the proposed impeachment of Brazilian president Dilma Rousseff at Cannes in May 2016. Jean-Paul Pelissier/Reuters Rodrigo Fonseca, Darcy Ribeiro School of Cinema With more than 338,000 tickets sold, more than $1 million in box office, and two months of sold-out screenings, the Brazilian film Aquarius is a megahit by Latin American independent cinema standards. It has finished its run at the Viennale Film Festival in Vienna, Austria, and it will compete next month at Mexico's Premios Fenix, where it's nominated for best actress and best director, among other awards. But don't expect to see this critics' darling at the Oscars. Beyond its international acclaim, Aquarius is the cause of a vitriolic political dispute within the Brazilian arts. The country's decision not to send the film to the Oscars as a contender for Best Foreign Film has led to accusations of censorship, putting the brand-new administration of Michel Tem ...

Chill Out And Get Off: Inside The Strange, Sexy World Of ASMRotica
Huffington Post - 5 months
Laila Love ASMR, as she goes by on YouTube, sits before her laptop camera in a room that appears to be a bedroom masquerading as a spa. A Himalayan salt lamp is propped next to a sprawling white bed, along with a spread of lit candles that I can only imagine smell soothing as hell.  In the video called “~Sensual Trigger Words~ *ASMRotica* *3Dio Binaural*,” Love wears a low-cut T-shirt, rectangular glasses and fluorescent pink lipstick, her black hair styled with short, Bettie Page–style bangs. She greets her viewers in a painstaking whisper in which every consonant is elongated, enunciated, even somehow massaged. “Now today I wanted to do a sexy, sensual trigger words video ― Part 2,” she says, her dimples popping in and out of view as she attempts to hold back a smile.  “Sensual,” she begins. The word is brought to life in Love’s mouth, stretched out and softened as if spun from cotton candy, or uttered in a melodramatic perfume commercial. “Love. Close. Satin. ...

Lori Culwell: Twelve Things You Didn't Know About Gwen From Parenthood: An Interview With Rose Abdoo)
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
By now, you've hopefully caught up on season four of Parenthood, which was arguably the most emotional season yet. If you're a fan of the show, you know that this season focused on Kristina (played by Monica Potter) and her battle with breast cancer. Kristina got good news about her cancer in the finale, but the episode took an unexpected emotional turn when Kristina went to say goodbye to her chemotherapy team and discovered that her friend Gwen (played by Rose Abdoo) was back, her cancer having returned. Since Gwen had served as Kristina's touchstone throughout the season, viewers were heartbroken I am a big fan of the show so I was already connected to the season, but I was also excited about this storyline because my husband (voiceover actor Stephan Cox) knows Abdoo (Gwen). He interviewed her last month, and there are many things about her that I know you will find interesting. Here are the highlights, and if you love Rose like we do, you can listen to the intervie ...

Summer Rayne Oakes: The Pirelli Calendar's Soulful Departure
Huffington Post - about 4 years
"Shoot a calendar that will inspire the next generation." Those were the directions that Pirelli creative team imparted to Steve McCurry, the chosen photographer (see: "Afghan Girl") for the 40th Anniversary edition of the Calendar, which launched in Rio de Janeiro this past week. Instead of the calendar that we often come to expect, featuring artistic nudes, Pirelli and McCurry opted for a less expected route. They chose, instead, to feature eleven women fully clothed -- all of who work on environmental and humanitarian causes. This was of course, music to my ears, as well as many of the other lovely ladies I got to share some calendar space with, including Liya Kebede, who works on maternal health; Petra Nemcova, who started the Happy Hearts Fund after surviving the tsunami of 2004; and Kyleigh Kuhn, who works closely with women in Afghanistan with Twenty Four Suns and Roots of Peace. Rio provided a vibrant backdrop for the two-week shoot. McCurry not only captur ...
