Frozen

Classic fairy tale takes Disney to a winter wonderland

Frozen is a heavily rewritten take on Hans Christian Andersen’s 1845 tale. Those familiar with it won’t find a lot of the original story left standing. That might not be a bad thing.

Kill Your Darlings

Proto-Beatnik biopic finds Ginsberg, Kerouac involved in murder most foul

Kill Your Darlings plays out like a coming-of-age tale wrapped in a dark murder mystery. It’s set in 1944 when Allen Ginsberg was a freshman at Columbia University. Along with pals Jack Kerouac and William S. Burroughs, Ginsberg is still a decade or two away from igniting a literary firestorm.

Blue Is the Warmest Color

I was a teenage lesbian, and all I got was this heartbreaking movie

Depending on which way the wind blows, Blue Is the Warmest Color is either brilliant and groundbreaking or false and perverted. Honestly it’s all of that and more.

12 Years a Slave

Is this bracing, brutal look at slavery too hard to watch or too good to miss?

Hour of the Lobo

Nightlight short illuminates UNM

"UNM @ Night" still

"UNM @ Night" still
In the mood for something a bit artsy and altogether local?

Kamiomedia recently released a short media production titled “UNM @ Night.” The short spotlights a variety of beautiful scenes on Albuquerque’s favorite campus—sorry CNM Suncats, but I’m a Lobo—from within the mantle of midnight.

The Kamiomedia video team—Kyle Maier, Amie Gibson and Rico Ramirez—captured images reminiscent of a light show. In some instances, the filmmakers demonstrate their creative expertise by highlighting the glowing colors of campus with special effects like a fisheye lens and slow motion. And nearly all Kamiomedia productions feature original music by the trio themselves. This brief cinematic outing is only one example among many works by the visual and musical artistic collective.

Sometimes I fail to fully appreciate the beauty of my own campus, and this short film gave me a fresh appreciation for UNM's eclectic visual landscape—natural fall color juxtaposed with bright neon. If you have three minutes to spare, check it out below.

Speaking of UNM and short films, swing by the Southwest Film Center—located in the Student Union Building—on Nov. 9 for the second annual UNM Student Film Festival—where more sublime cinematic treats await you.
