KSL Indie Report: 6 places to enjoy art house cinema in Utah – KSL.com


Editor’s note: The KSL Indie Report seeks to highlight independent films, local movie theaters and filmmakers. If you have a nomination, email fjolley@ksl.com for consideration.

SALT LAKE CITY — We’ve all been there, haven’t we?

We’re sitting in a darkened theater or checking out movie trailers online when we see the perfect preview for an upcoming title we’ve never heard of. We jot down a quick mental note to watch said movie when it’s finally released, only to realize sometime later that it never was released, or if it was, someone forgot to tell us.

Welcome to the world of independent cinema. Oftentimes original and compelling cinematic stories are lost to willing audiences somewhere between marketing and distribution. Left to the ways of the world that might be the end of the tale, but it turns out in the state of Utah, there are good people trying fix that system.

We at the KSL Indie Report have found five places where locals can find great independent film in the Beehive State.

If you’re looking for the ultimate independent movie experience, you want to go small. How small you ask? We’re talking microcinema small. Located on Ogden’s Historic 25th Street, Cinema 502 is a 28-seat theater that showcases movies you won’t find anywhere else in the state, with the sound and picture you’d expect from a much larger establishment. Cinema 502 features independent animation, documentary and foreign films, while also sneaking in a few classic favorites. Also, popcorn is always on the house.

Cinema 502 also serves as a space for private screenings.

It’s a really bizarre day when you’re writing an article that suggests the Broadway is the biggest kid in town, but when it comes to independent film, the Salt Lake Film Society’s premiere theater is the first place to look for that hard-to-find release.

Located at 111 E. Broadway in Salt Lake City, the Broadway is always hosting interesting events that include special guests, movie premieres and cinematic celebrations like its Summer Late Nights which are going on right now. When you have your eye on a movie that includes the line “limited release” on its marketing material, make sure to check the Salt Lake Film Society’s website for its best chance at finding a screen in Utah.

Broadway Centre’s sister theater has a bit of a rebellious streak. While the Broadway is a great place to find movies like the KSL Popcorn Report favorite “Hunt for the Wilderpeople,” the Tower is currently running “The Bad Batch,” which is “a dystopian love story in a Texas wasteland and set in a community of cannibals.”

That’s not to say The Tower is all about grindhouse-type pictures. In fact, they’re about to run a weekend long Harry Potter marathon coming this July. It’s mainly that The Tower is your best bet for, we’ll say, bohemian offerings. The Tower is located on the corner of 9th East and 9th South in Salt Lake City.

While the Utah Film Center isn’t a single art house — it is a great organization that brings independent movies to different venues throughout the state including Orem, Ogden, Moab and West Jordan. Its website keeps a complete listing of the films and where they’ll be next, so it wouldn’t be a bad idea to bookmark its URL or follow them on social media.

Also, KUER’s Radiowest show “Through the Lens” works closely with the Utah Film Center, so it’s not uncommon to enjoy a great Q&A session after the free screenings.

As much as I hate to admit this, some of my best independent film experiences in Utah have been at the large, chain theaters. For example, hitting late-night indie screenings at the Jordan Commons Megaplex theater often ends with just me, some popcorn and a totally empty theater. Since the bigger theaters have more screens to fill, especially during the slower seasons, they’ll occasionally block an empty slot with smaller titles starting to gather commercial appeal including 2016’s “Moonlight” and “Lion” to name a few.

For many of the obvious reasons, please check listings at the theaters on this list or any independently owned theaters near you before hitting the already successful mega-chains; but at the end of the day, no matter where you buy your ticket, choosing independent film shows support to the filmmakers who are trying to create stories without a big Hollywood budget.

Video-on-demand services have changed the way independent film is distributed in a big way. Services like Netflix, Amazon and Hulu make more money buying original projects at popular film festivals or creating their own content outright than they do trying to negotiate licensing deals from the big studios.

The result has been spectacular for the average moviegoer who, until now, hasn’t had access to small releases or material created for niche audiences. Where filmmaking ends up 10 years from now will be driven in large part because of how original work is being distributed today. But you don’t need to worry about that. Just enjoy the fact that your living room is becoming a premiere destination for quality cinema.

At Vetements, 'It's Not Really Fashion' – The Business of Fashion


PARIS, France — When Demna Gvasalia calls his Vetements project “a creative lab of ideas,” he’s talking about a whole lot more than fashion. Now that he’s set up in his pristine new headquarters in Zurich, where a tidy environment begets a tidy mind, the clothes are becoming a platform for a host of other activities. That much was obvious from the Vetements presentation in Paris on Saturday.

OK, it was in a big, ugly concrete car park, and we’re all familiar with the appeal of the brutalist anonymity of a concrete car park to a certain segment of fashion’s avant-garde. And Gvasalia’s car park was the municipal one, where disgruntled citizens have to go to reclaim their tow-aways. A monument to bad vibes, then.

Except he made it better. The sun shone, the music played and the walls were lined with his massive portraits of people in Zurich wearing the new collection. That was the “show.”

The ‘models’ were shown a picture and asked to duplicate the pose, if they so chose. The request yielded some fabulous results.

The presentation was a kind of love letter to Gvasalia’s new hometown, sixty pictures of ordinary Swiss people scouted on the street. “It could be the lookbook of the last show,” he said, referring to the collection of socio-economic archetypes he herded through the Centre Pompidou for Autumn/Winter. “But here it became more human. It’s about real people.”

His street cast styled themselves. Gvasalia said that, for them, it was like shopping. For instance, the black cousins (“Destiny’s Child” he called them) came in and headed straight for the black leather. “It could be this on the street,” he said. “It’s not really fashion.” Remember those words.

The shoot itself was an intense four days. The “models,” were shown a picture and asked to duplicate the pose, if they so chose. The request yielded some fabulous results. The kid in the barre pose? He used to do ballet. The grande dame? She was once a model. The angry old man? “He chose anger, because that was his idea of fashion,” says Gvasalia.

Looking at the pictures, you sense certain set-up ironies in the juxtapositions. “This is actually how it is there,” the designer clarifies. The guy outside SwissLife, for instance. “He’s wearing a Vetements double shirt which you can open from the back and that immediately gives you something quite perverse,” Gvasalia says. “He actually does work in an insurance company, and those guys are already a little spooky, perverse.”

You’re kind of looking for that subtext with everything the Gvasalia brothers do. Like the Balenciaga show in the Bois de Boulogne the other day, where the looming presence of Kyle MacLachlan, AKA Agent Cooper from “Twin Peaks”, made people think about perverse goings-on in woods dark and deep. There was a flavour of that in the Vetements presentation as well. Every episode of the new iteration of David Lynch’s tv series concludes with a convincing performance by an unjustifiably little-known band, almost as though Lynch is wearing an A&R hat among the many other guises he assumes on “Twin Peaks”. Demna’s live performance was a Viennese combo called Lovehotelband, as anomic yet mesmerising as any Lynch discovery. David, look them up.

But balance that ambiguous subtext with Gvasalia’s contentment in his new home. “It’s the complete opposite of Paris, no stress, no rush,” he says. “There’s never been a war there so the people are in a good mood. Very selfish but very happy.” He describes the photo shoot as a way to integrate Vetements into the community. Gvasalia made friends. The “Destiny’s Child” cousins have invited him to go out on the lake with them next week.

And if you look at these pictures, and reflect on the cool-dad-ophilia of the Balenciaga show, you’d be well within your rights to imagine that Demna’s getting broody.

From Hot Shorts to Hot Guys, 10 Things to Know About Men's Fashion Week Spring 2018 – Vogue.com


Four cities, over 200 collections, and one Kyle MacLachlan sighting—this is Men’s Fashion Week Spring 2018. On the runways of London, Florence, Milan, and Paris, trends congealed, It Boys were made, and the offbeat, casual spirit of dads on a tropical vacation overtook fashion. How did we get here? Ten key moments.

1. The month of run-around shows began with an unlikely Burberry and Gosha Rubchinskiy collaboration.
In St. Petersburg, Gosha Rubchinskiy helped kick off Men’s Fashion Month with another of his subversively strange collections drawn from his life and youth. The cast of buzzed boys and those oversize Adidas tracksuits were pure Gosha, but the show ended with a riveting plot twist: The final eight looks were made in collaboration with Burberry. Fashion fans were quick to remember that in the late ‘90s and early aughts, Burberry worked hard to distance itself from a sort of suburban, working class image—oh, how the times have changed. Rubchinskiy’s pieces drew heavily on knockoff culture, using Burberry’s oft copied tartan for everything from caps to macks.

2. Hot shorts and high socks quickly became the styling trick to beat—on the runway and off. . .
Legs, legs, legs! Whether at Prada, Dior Homme, or on the streets of Paris, short shorts were the most visible—or invisible, at times—item in Europe. Designers paired them with high socks and suit jackets on the catwalk, a surreal reflection of the way real men were dealing with Europe’s heatwave. On the street, retailer Josh Peskowitz took the prize for most innovative solution: A blue-on-blue check romper.

3. . . . And we have the vast number of outdoor shows to thank for that.
The great outdoors aren’t just an accessories trend (hello, fanny packs and safety buckles)—they’ve become the ideal scene for staging a menswear show. At Pitti Uomo, both guest designers, Jonathan Anderson and Off-White’s Virgil Abloh, presented their collections in courtyards, while Paris saw Louis Vuitton, Kenzo, and Balenciaga show in the sweltering sun. The most daring en plein air presentation belonged to Rick Owens, who outfitted the Palais de Tokyo with a maze of scaffolding that models walked in—what else?—teeny shorts.

Thom Browne Spring 2018Photo: Indigital.tv

4. Still sweltering? Try a skirt from Thom Browne.
Echoing the protest of the Devon schoolboys or the French bus drivers, Thom Browne showed skirts and dresses copied from his womenswear range for men, culminating in a look that was groom in the front, bride in the back. The message was a particularly poignant one—we should wear what we want, regardless of society dictums about gender and style. The jumping off point for this subversive collection were Browne’s baby moccasins. “I like the idea that when you are a baby you wear pretty much the same clothing as your brothers and sisters. And I think that culture dictates which way and what kind of clothing you wear—but it is nice that you can pretty much do whatever you want.” Amen.

5. For those not into skirts, a slinky black dress for men from Stefano Pilati’s new line will have to do.
The eclectically dandy Stefano Pilati has been on a self-imposed hiatus since parting company with Ermenegildo Zegna in 2016. That break came to an end during men’s fashion month when he debuted, without ceremony, pictures of a new collection on his Instagram Stories. Entirely black and entirely genderless, the hypothetical range (he reportedly has no plans to manufacture or sell it) is comprised of straight leg suiting, blouson jackets, and one off-the-shoulder dress.

6. Hot or not, you’re going to be wearing a Hawaiian shirt next spring.
After addressing the tumult of the world head on for several seasons, men’s fashion went a more escapist route for Spring. There were sequins at Comme des Garçons Homme Plus and mystical symbols at Alexander McQueen, but nothing read more get-me-outta-here than the Hawaiian prints that popped up everywhere from Louis Vuitton to Marni. Maybe Justin O’Shea’s new brand summed up the rationale for going to the far Pacific best in the title of his debut SSS World Corp collection, “Aloha From Hell.”

7. Meanwhile in the front row, Balenciaga had the best celeb sighting with Twin Peaks, The Revival star Kyle MacLachlan.
“Kyle and his work have been inspirational to me throughout, I would say, the seven years that I have been in fashion. My mood board has very often featured him. So I was very excited that he could be here today,” Balenciaga’s Demna Gvasalia told my colleague Luke Leitch of his front row muse Kyle MacLachlan. MacLachlan wasn’t just represented in the FROW, either. A look made in the likeness of his character Dougie Jones from the new Twin Peaks series opened the show. The actor, however, is more into the plastic-wrapped numbers. He told Leitch, “Obviously it all started with Laura Palmer being wrapped in plastic, so I drew it back to the show. And that jacket with the dragon on it…” A damn good celeb sighting, indeed.

8. As for younger stars, they’re skipping the front row and launching their own brands.
What do A$AP Bari and Skepta have in common? They’re both new in the menswear game with their own lines. The former showed his collection, Vlone, on the Rue Cambon, while the latter landed in Selfridges with a shopping event. On the internet, Zayn’s Versace collaboration finally launched, and back in London, David Beckham—young at heart!—got back on the schedule with Kent & Curwen.

Kenzo Spring 2018Photo: Indigital.tv

9. And Kenzo had the best casting with about 80 models of Asian descent.
Inspired by the model Sayoko Yamaguchi and the musician Ryuichi Sakamoto, Kenzo’s Carol Lim and Humberto Leon stacked their Kenzo show with an entirely Asian cast. “I think we use our platform so instinctively for different reasons, and we just wanted to use it for joy,” he told Amy Verner.

10. One last question: Who’s your daddy, Demna?
Dadcore is the core to beat for Spring 2018, and no one is more into it than Demna Gvasalia. His Balenciaga show was inspired by young dads at the park, birthing zip-away trousers and roomy polo shirts worn by real dads toting their kids down the runway. At Vetements, Gvasalia also engaged in some light dadcore, casting some more real dads, real families, and real grannies in the brand’s first “no-show” lookbook. Being uncool was never so cool.



Justin Trudeau wore our Muslim hipster socks – Macleans.ca

It’s no longer surprising when Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s socks make headlines. There were Star Wars socks for May the Fourth, a NATO-themed pair for a leaders summit and maple leaves for Live with Kelly and Ryan. But no one was more surprised than Shehryar and Sara Qureshy to learn Trudeau would sport a rainbow-striped pair reading “Eid Mubarak” at Pride in Toronto on the weekend to mark the end of Ramadan. Shehryar and Sara are the husband-and-wife team behind Halal Socks, the Toronto-based company that produced the now famous pair. “We were totally flabbergasted,” Shehryar says. “I think Sara was screaming.” The company, which sells Islam-themed socks, only launched this month, and the ensuing attention crashed its website. Shehryar and Sara explain how it happened.

Q: How did you start the company?

Sara: Last Eid, I was trying to find something for my husband, and I was having a really difficult time finding something that was festive. I was complaining to him, “I’m having a hard time, let me know what you want.” He’s like, “You know I love socks. Why don’t you find me some socks that go with this occasion?” I searched but I couldn’t find anything, and I told Shehryar that. He’s like, “Okay, we got something here.” So that’s how it started.

Q: Are the socks really halal?

Shehryar: We actually went to different mosques, both conservative and liberal mosques, around the Greater Toronto Area, and talked to prominent leaders in our community to make sure the designs are compliant with their beliefs. There were some designs that had to be altered. We’ve got one with a mosque design, for example, and one imam who told us there’s a big community that will take this negatively, and see this as putting mosques underneath your feet. We said, no problem, let’s remove it. So we were confident that when we launch, we’ve got acceptance from these major Muslim hubs in the GTA.

Q: Tell me about the “Beard Bro” design.

Shehryar: Some of our brothers in the mosque are quite stylish. They’re rocking a clean haircut, their pant legs are high, they’re wearing tight clothes, and they’ve got nice, big beards. Sometimes we’ll joke, “How’s your beard game?” And we’re like, “My beard game is strong.” Now you’re showcasing your socks along with it. Think of this as for the Muslim hipster.

A: So how did the Prime Minister end up wearing your socks?

Sara: I got a hold of Omar Alghabra, the MP of Mississauga Centre, and we asked him if he could somehow gift these socks to our prime minister. We knew Eid was coming up and we knew he’s a sock enthusiast. We just hoped he would be willing to wear them. So Omar Alghabra got them to the prime minister. I think he really liked them because he wore them twice.

Q: Oh, he wore them before?

Sara: Yeah, the first time was last week at an event at the Muslim Welfare Centre in Scarborough. I got a video from Omar Alghabra, and I was ecstatic. The prime minister was giving a speech and mentioned the Eid Mubarak socks. He lifted up his pants a little bit.

Q: Have you seen sales pick up?

Sara: All of this amazing attention hasn’t really translated into many sales yet. But our international orders have gone up a little bit, so that proves Trudeau’s global appeal is there.

Shehryar: The Muslim population is growing around the world, and they’re getting more affluent and willing to spend money on things that appeal to them. Our overall vision is we start with men’s socks, and if this attention translates into orders, we could go into the wider Muslim apparel market, inshallah.

The Rad Trads close out 2017 Jazz in June festival, perform indie rock music without the angst – Daily Nebraskan


The Rad Trads started as a way for a group of broke college kids to pay rent in New York City. But since 2012, the band has brought its brand of high-energy indie rock to every corner of the globe from London to Lincoln, Nebraska.

Consisting of Patrick Sargent on saxophone, Michael Fatum on trumpet, Alden Harris-McCoy on guitar, Mike Harlen on bass and John Fatum on drums, the band will play Jazz in June festival on June 27 in front of the Lied Center for Performing Arts.

Nearly a decade ago, in 2008, the band members met at New York University and found they shared a common interest in music. They bonded over a shared love of old jazz artists and by graduation, they decided to make it a full-time project.

The Rad Trads started as a seven-man cover band, performing songs from classic jazz artists such as Louis Armstrong and Allen Toussaint. However, since the band last played in Lincoln in 2015, it has depleted to a quintet.

This lineup change brought a shift in the band’s sound, adding more modern influences outside the jazz realm, like rock groups Tame Impala and The Strokes.

John Fatum, who describes his band’s genre as high-energy rock and roll, said the change in sound was a natural progression.

“We all wanted more substance for ourselves,” Fatum said. “And we all got into writing more music.”

The Rad Trads’ writing process typically consists of any of the members pitching an idea to the group, then everyone writes collaboratively around that single idea.

Fatum said the band’s small size makes it easier to pay attention to all the members ideas without someone getting drowned out.

Fatum said The Rad Trads often draw comparisons to The Band because of their similar sound as well as having all their members sing lead vocals.

According to Harlen, the band’s stability lies in the long-standing friendships of its members.

“We’re a very democratic band,” Harlen. “There’s some personal stuff, but egos don’t really get upset. We’re all really close friends.”

As a constantly touring band, Harlen said one of the best parts of always being on the move is connecting with different audiences and experiencing new places.

“The thing that makes touring fun is that there is no typical day at all,” he said. “One night we’re in a crappy motel, the next night we’re in a fancy hotel in the Swiss Alps.”

About a year after dropping their first album, “Must We Call Them Rad Trads,” the band is finishing up its next project, which will debut in the fall.

The upcoming album will feature the same big sound the band is known for, despite the smaller lineup, Fatum said.

Lyrically, the songs will feature personal stories from all of the members about love and breakups, but without the angst commonly found in indie rock.

“It’s nice and sincere without being moody,” Fatum said. “We’re more just driven to fun, but everyone has real stuff going on in their life.”

The last time The Rad Trads were in Lincoln, Fatum wrote a song for his solo project called “Ride On Nebraska,” which is, the project’s most played song on Spotify.

The Rad Trads’ Jazz in June performance is tonight at 6 p.m.



Fashion Icon André Leon Talley Talks “Reigning Men” Exhibit – Ladue News




Ralph Lauren. As described by André Leon Talley, “A classic uniform – American at its best.”


“Reigning Men: Fashion in Menswear 1715-2015” exhibit at Saint Louis Art Museum.


“Reigning Men: Fashion in Menswear 1715-2015” exhibit at Saint Louis Art Museum.

Ushering in the arrival of the highly anticipated “Reigning Men: Fashion in Menswear 1715-2015” exhibit at the Saint Louis Art Museum, fashion mogul André Leon Talley sat down with an audience to discuss all things fashionable. Talley first got his big break into the coveted fashion world through volunteering at an exhibit curated by Diana Vreeland at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. He has gone on to work with designer giants, including Karl Lagerfeld, Manolo Blahnik, Versace and more. LN gives you an insider’s guide to the conversation with the former editor-at-large for Vogue magazine.

On Diana Vreeland:

  • “Her presence…her entrance in the Met was ceremonial [in] the way English royalty does parades. She walked only on her toes, even in heels. There was no click-click sound. She wanted to meet the person who had done this outfit [for her exhibit]. It was lunchtime, and she had one sandwich and a little shot of scotch. She asked me, ‘What is your name?’ ‘Andre.’ Mrs. Vreeland wrote on a big yellow tablet, ‘ANDRE. HELPER.’ She told me, ‘You will stay by my side for the rest of this exhibit. NOW, LET’S GET GOING!’”
  • “My inspiration growing up was my grandma. Her discipline, protecting me, projecting confidence. My grandma would always say, ‘Wax and shine those wood floors!’ I got to Mrs. Vreeland and she was waxing and shining silver shoes.”

On modern muses:

  • “The iconic men, the disruptors who are influencing fashion today, are musicians and rappers. Drake…Jay Z…Kanye West…P. Diddy.”
  • “Kanye West is extraordinary. He is a talented artist who takes himself very seriously. Sometimes, you like him; sometimes, you hate him. But he remains influential.”
  • “Jaden Smith has fluidity. He wore an albino bat costume to Kim [Kardashian] and Kanye’s wedding. He is on his own trajectory to becoming a big influencer.”

On personal style:

  • “Take pride in what you have. You may [only] have one pair of shoes – but you can keep them immaculately polished.”
  • “Your clothes must transport you…Make you feel like you are absolutely the most fabulous thing walking down the street.”

On opportunity:

  • “It’s always a good day to learn something.”
  • “You must not be afraid to articulate your passions and thoughts.”

On aspirations:

  • “[I want to] reach more people with my voice.” Currently, Talley broadcasts a radio show, “Full Length,” on SiriusXM’s Radio Andy channel 102.

On Andy Warhol:

  • “From Andy, I learned to love the world with the curiosity of a child.”

On Karl Lagerfeld:

  • “Karl is very awesome and intimidating. [He] would wear beautiful silk coats and host dinners by candelabra. He used to make me go for torch-led walks in the frost.”

On his favorite menswear item:

  • “[Don’t underestimate] the importance of a beautifully ironed shirt.”

On the future of fashion:

  • “Men’s fashion is going to become more fluid, more feminine – and more powerful.”

“Reigning Men: Fashion in Menswear 1715-2015” is running from June 25 to September 17. Saint Louis Art Museum, One Fine Arts Drive, Forest Park, 314-721-0072, slam.org.

Is THIS UK's most hipster school? Students wear no uniforms and sit no exams – Daily Star


BRITAIN’S most hipster school is proving a real hit with children – as there are no rules, exams or uniform.


COOL: Britain’s most hipster school is proving a real hit with children

Pupils at The Green House Education Project are in school three days a week and spend their time playing outside.

Traditional subjects are not taught, instead there are lessons on “how to resolve problems”, “find their passion in life” and play without supervision.

The 23 pupils, aged five to 14, don’t have desks so sit on blankets outdoors when the weather’s nice or round wood burning stoves in a yurt when it is not.

HIPSTER: Pupils at The Green House Education Project are in school three days a week

“We want them to discover the best of themselves”

Cindy Adams

Children are encouraged to understand safety by taking risks such as climbing trees barefoot and whittling with knives.

Despite the school only running three days a week, term fees are £1,250.

The Green House Project near Bath, Somerset, was set up by teachers Anna Robinson and Cindy Adams after they became “very disillusioned” with the national schooling system.

EDUCATION: Children are encouraged to understand safety by taking risks

Cindy said: “There is a saying ‘it takes a village to raise a child’ and that is what we are trying to encourage. Children learn so much through play and interaction with each other. We want them to discover the best of themselves.

“I think there is too much pressure on children in mainstream schools. There is something wrong when research shows young children suffering high levels of anxiety,” added Cindy.

“We want our children to be happy – you can’t learn if you are anxious.”
