With an impassive eye and a spare touch, filmmakers Huang Ji and Ryuji Otsuka depict the desolate life of a 16-year-old girl. Lynn is a frowzy high-school student living in a rundown rural town in China with her grandparents while her migrant-worker mother is away. With a murderous rapist on the loose in the background, things go awry when Lynn and her classmate embark upon an ill-conceived plan to steal and sell her classmates’ confiscated cellphones.
Writer Doug Sarti and publisher and cofounder Dan McLeod ventured into the newspaper equivalent of a time capsule to tell tales of the past. Earlier this month, one of the Georgia Straight’s most popular employees, Doug Sarti, sent an email to the staff letting them in on the company’s latest news. “Dan”, of course, is the Straight’s publisher Dan McLeod, and the book is called The Georgia Straight: A 50th Anniversary Celebration.
Matthew Taylor Blais’s 66-minute feature is simultaneously the most extreme and the most placid entry in this year’s FUTURE//PRESENT program.A young woman (the almost-not-there Ana Escorse) dreams of a forest, visits a forest, then falls asleep inside the forest (namely, Pacific Spirit Regional Park). There you have it: a wordless and subtly lysergic document that can be used either to quiet the mind or to project your own adventure.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
