The Arab Camera Festival


A Tale of Two Syrias is to be screened at the Arab Camera Festival in Rotterdam on Saturday 16th November 2013 (16:00). The Arab Camera Festival is an artistic haven. It shows a nuanced picture of the cultural, political, social and artistic situation in Arab countries. The movies are programmed around topical themes of the Arab community in Europe. Arab Camera creates space for open dialogue about art, human rights, emancipation and political freedom in Arab countries and in Europe and specifically in the Netherlands.

With special workshops and master classes taught by filmmakers from the Arab world and Europe, Arab Camera Film Festival Rotterdam focuses explicitly on developing talent. From this perspective, there is a special program component with experimental films and new talent every year.

Princess Pumpalot Review from Black Diamond FM


★★★★★ FIVE STAR Review of Princess Pumpalot The Farting Princess from Black Diamond FM.

As the title suggests this Princess does indeed pump a lot and what a brilliant show it is. The Princess Pumpalot website states

"Princess Pumpalot (The Farting Princess) is a children's stage show based on the book of the same name by Robin Mitchell. The book was first published in July 2012."

This show is supposed to be a children's show but this adult reckons it is wasted on children it is a brilliantly written and acted show and certainly brought a smile to my face.

In essence (albeit a smelly one) the story is about the Princess who is about to turn 16 and is given a cabinet key and in that cabinet are beans, not just ordinary beans but magic beans 32,141 to be precise and these beans are beans that make you fart.

The characters are really well played by a great cast from the Princess herself to the King and the brilliantly named Queen Latifah (something that some of us adults giggled at) also one of the characters Guffy to me had a resemblance to the late great Gerard Kelly and had me wondering if this was a nod to him or just a total coincidence.

There is a witch, a good guy (Prince Niceavia), a bad guy (Prince Nastavia) a talking Giraffe called Geoffrey and a low flying Gnome but most of all a wonderful Princess who pumps/farts/trumps/breaks wind...... I think you get the idea.

All in all a fantastic show to be enjoyed by kids and big kids like me who like fart jokes and noises but there is enough to keep adults happy too.

A huge well deserved 5 ***** stars from this big kid for Princess Pumpalot.

Showing at The Assembly Rooms George Street until 25th August.
