release the coffee

Los Angeles | City of Wins


Hollywood’s biggest night – The Oscars – occurred on February 26.  It came with a room full of firsts, candy dropping from the elevated ceilings of the Dolby Theater history was made for Moonlight, Viola Davis and the beloved specialty film ‘La La Land’ . The culture has documented the latter since late summer and is glad to see a film among many other cinematic works that include coffee as part of the lifestyle of its protagonists win high honors for its achievement in film.

Damien Chazelle’s ‘La La Land’ stood out for this culture as a specialty film, a musical, for achieving record numbers at the box office across its five screens during opening weekend; for being nominated for as many awards as Titanic, thus tying the all-time Oscar record, and for its subject matter which cast,  now winner of Best Actress in a Motion Picture, Emma Stone, as a barista/playwright hoping to make it in Hollywood.

MILAN | The Runway

shades of coffee

While coffee plays its part caffeinating Milan residents, visitors and those walking show to show during Milan Fashion Week, it also showed up as a hue in Tomas Maier’s show. Caramel and coffee collectively were part of the Autumn/Winter 17 collection where coats in the hues of coffee where proffered by Maier for ones dressing for the colder months where one is inclined to sip shades of coffee that come this fall will be wearable.

The 67th Berlinale Film Festival ran from February 9-18th. Filmmakers Ann Carolin Renninger and René Frölke entered a black and white documentary film ‘Aus einem Jahr der Nichtereignisse / From a Year of Non-Events’ into the festival. It follows the single man, 90 year-old Willi Detert.

The film enters not only into the interior of his home but into his lifestyle which includes a regular cast of characters and aesthetics from a cat, a coffee pattern and a cake. Image and story driven, this film is one the culture will keep its eyes on as it makes it to international screens showing the fragility and temporal idea of time.
