Julian Assange has joined the jury of the 21st Raindance Film Festival (Sept 25 - Oct 6), a London-based event that celebrates independent film in the UK and around the world.

The appointment is a controversial one. The Australian editor-in-chief and founder of WikiLeaks took refuge in the Ecuadorean embassy in London in June 2012 to avoid extradition to Sweden, where he is wanted for questioning about sexual assault allegations.

White Fox Mask | Review - 2012 American Film Festival in Wrocław

For many good reasons, White Fox Mask is a mesmerizing piece of art; but for as many equally important ones -- it may be considered to be boring or rather tiring. Ricky Shane Reid’s second feature film is inspired both by the great Avant-garde of the late twenties and Andrey Tarkovskiy's metaphysical thrillers. And what I like in White Fox Mask -- and would like to focus on -- is this peculiar duality that appears within the plot; the selfhood of its main characters and connotations which echo through my head. Following those two paths, I see a surrealist-like artist from Jean Cocteau's films and the main protagonist from Tarkovskiy's Solaris, both of whom possess the lead character of White Fox Mask, Federico’s (Kentucker Audley) mind. Do we know who this man really is? All that is unveiled about Federico's past is that he is the
