SITE REDESIGNED


Well folks, it's been a while, but I'm back on track, and I hope to be able to update regulary from now on. I started with school, so as a freshman, you know how confused I feel at this moment, I'm still lost in space:)

NEW ARTICLES


There are two new articles, check them out. Both are very interesting. By the way, it seems like Gema has changed her agent. I hope we will get to know the new one soon. :)


THE MYSTERY IS SOLVED

Gema's birthdate has been a mystery for a long long time. Well we finally found out.  Gema's birthdate is 24/05/1976 !! Her horoscope sign is Gemini, can you imagine? :)))
FINALY
I found out what was all about. I was a bit puzzled about Gema's performance at the Brott Music Festival. But, she was actually reading excerpts from Sophia MacNab's diary with a background music playing. Check the articles section, I've put a short article about it. There's one about her Gemini Award nomination back in 1995 too, which I discovered recently.
BROTT MUSIC FESTIVAL
I just read on some webpage that Gema was preforming at the Brott Music Festival on 25th July 2000. The concert is inspired by Sophia MacNab's diary, and Gema was playing the character of Sophia. Where have I been? 't seems like Gema is quite busy these days:)
MORE GOOD NEWS  (thanks Shelly)

JOHNNY

     Gema has recently appeared in a movie project called Johnny, and is produced in the Dogme 95 style . Inspired by Lars von Trier's "The Idiots", it is written and directed by Carl Bessai.
Gema plays Alice, a runaway from a nice, middle-class home who returns one evening to tell her sister, Dell (Vanessa Shaver), that she is pregnant, but who refuses to leave the streets where Johnny (Chris Martin),and his friends take advantage of her in various ways.Most of the movie is shot in Toronto, with a hand-held camera, with no special light or sound effects. It is a Raven West Production movie, presented at The Vancouver International Film Festival in 1999.
I've put a couple of comments which explain the plot and the idea very clearly.
Date: Friday, April 28, 2000
" Thanks to the Dogme style, viewers are given a reality-based sense of what it must be like to live on the streets, or in a hovel, and make a living washing car windows for grumpy or even hostile drivers on Spadina Ave. "
by BRUCE KIRKLAND
Toronto Sun

There have been lots of critics (some positive, some negative) about this movie.Here's some of the critics from a magazine called "EYE":
Date: 04.27.00
"The Dogme tactics give Johnny considerable vitality, but neither that nor the skills of Bessai's young cast can overcome some of the script's weaknesses. Johnny is so blatantly Machiavellian that his followers sometimes seem totally idiotic as well as weak-willed. Some scenes are sharp and terse while others are flat, deriving what energy they have from the incessant motion of the cameras (both Johnny's and Bessai's) rather than the characters' interaction... "
But, the results have shown that Johnny is a 7-out-of-10-star movie, and so it deserves attention.
