Siti @ Five Flavours Festival

Every year at November there is Five Flavours Festival (Festiwal Pięć Smaków) in Warsaw. It’s an Asian cinema festival. Every year there is a theme/focus. This year it’s Japanese female directors.

But yesterday I went to see Indonesian film Siti (2014) about woman named Siti living in Parangtritis area, taking care of her paralysed husband (and his debt) and their son.

Did you watch Siti? What do you think of it?

PS. Yup, I have literally no time to keep updating blog. Sorry.

A to Z April 2015

Welcome to the next month of A to Z reading challenge. We read books written by authors coming from the countries named on a certain letter (in their official languages).

Letters for April: H and I and you should read a book (comic, volume of poetry) by an author from one of the following countries:

  • South Korea
  • Armenia
  • Croatia
  • Indonesia
  • Iran
  • Iceland

Try reading outside of your own country, if possible.

The only Indonesian books/comics I reviewed on blog were in Indonesian language. I had reviewed South Korean comics and books in English language, you can see them on my blog. I have a book by Icelandic crime writer Yrsa Sigurdardottir, but I haven’t read her book yet. She’s translated into English.

What will you read? Can you recommend any writers?
