So…this is my article in the print issue of Mojo. It’s so overwhelming and gratifying to see my name in print, and a lovely reminder of the best internship I ever had. So flick to this page if you see it and think of me!

Things Overheard at the Film Fest #1

(Mostly by old white people that made me want to whack them over the head)

"Oh my goodness, what is this film all about? - Maps to the Stars

"I wish my summer home was as beautiful as theirs, but it’s a few thousands sq ft in Long Island." - Maps

"This film would be so good if this Chinese lady would open her fuckin eyes and see…" - Coming Home

"I was held up in India too, and I had better pictures of this Koooombh Maaaaayla" - Faith Connections

"My gosh, look at how dirty and filthy these brown people are?" - Faith Connections

"How could he use his Genie prize like that, scumbag" - Maps

"Well what would expect from a gay 25yr old from Quebec" - Mommy

"Well some people don’t get that these guys talk a lot of sense" - The Riot Club

"What I don’t get is why are their eyes not ‘Asian’ like in this, I’m sorry to ask" - The Tale of Princess Kaguya

After 3hrs of untangling, I revert to “I’m-in-Year-2” aesthetics.

It’s too much effort to tear myself away from abusing my press pass at VIFF this year and watching four films in a row like Nas:Time is Illmatic, Coming Home, Foxcatcher, and Tales all in one day. I don’t know how I’ll balance my video project, my thesis (cultural appropriation in fashion!), my long feature on the Dark is Beautiful group’s new male-focused campaign and spending my 5 day week living and reviewing at the cinema… Going to the cinema has never felt like an escape for me, except until grad school where I’d rather relish in watching Gong Li onscreen than on a literature review…

Charulata (Satyajit Ray, 1964)

Uni has started and I’ve already got to have somewhat of a thesis proposal by the 22nd, a pitch for a mag by next Friday, a pre-interview for my video class. Can someone transport me to London where I can watch Wong Kar Wai movies at the BFI instead?

So this is what my internships all add up to - credit. Mojo didn’t have to do this and most other mags wouldn’t acknowledge the mainly thankless tasks that the interns do. So it feels humbling as well as flat-out exciting as hell that my name is in the masthead of the Oct issue! It’s been a brilliant time there - the writers were mentors, they made me laugh, they took me to the pub, let me drink wine that Prince had sent them, let me interview Nile Rodgers with a upcoming feature in the November issue and generally let me learn on the job. I couldn’t asked for a better time at all!
