THE PERVERT'S GUIDE TO CINEMA takes the viewer on an exhilarating ride through some of the greatest movies ever made. Serving as presenter and guide is the charismatic Slavoj Zizek, the Slovenian philosopher and psychoanalyst. With his engaging and passionate approach to thinking, Zizek delves into the hidden language of cinema, uncovering what movies can tell us about ourselves.
THE PERVERT'S GUIDE TO CINEMA offers an introduction into some of Zizek's most exciting ideas on fantasy, reality, sexuality, subjectivity, desire, materiality and cinematic form. Whether he is untangling the famously baffling films of David Lynch, or overturning everything you thought you knew about Hitchcock, Zizek illuminates the screen with his passion, intellect, and unfailing sense of humour. THE PERVERT'S GUIDE TO CINEMA applies Zizek's ideas to the cinematic canon, in what The Times calls 'an extraordinary reassessment of cinema.'
The film cuts its cloth from the very world of the movies it discusses; by shooting at original locations and on replica sets, it creates the uncanny illusion that Zizek is speaking from within the films themselves. Described by The Times as 'the woman helming this Freudian inquest,' director Sophie Fiennes' collaboration with Slavoj Zizek illustrates the immediacy with which film and television can communicate genuinely complex ideas. Says Zizek: 'My big obsession is to make things clear. I can really explain a line of thought if I can somehow illustrate it in a scene from a film. THE PERVERT'S GUIDE TO CINEMA is really about what psychoanalysis can tell us about cinema.'
THE PERVERT'S GUIDE TO CINEMA is constructed in three parts. Says Fiennes: 'The form of the Guide is a deliberately open one. There are three parts, but there could be more. Zizek's method of thinking is exciting because it's always building. Things relate forwards and backwards and interconnect into a mind-altering network of ideas. The film's title is something of a McGuffin - just a way to get you into this network.'

The revolutionary chants on the streets of Egypt have resonated around the world, but with a popular uprising without a clear direction and an unpopular leader refusing to concede, Egypt's future hangs in the balance. Riz Khan talks to Muslim scholar Tariq Ramadan and Slovenian philosopher Slavoj Zizek about the power of popular dissent, the limits of peaceful protest and the future of Egyptian politics.

Nortec Collective presents:
Tijuana Sound Machine
Después de una década de haber creado el sonido que definió a la frontera, el colectivo Nortec muta. De esta metamorfosis aparece hoy la producción Tijuana Sound Machine, de Bostich y Fussible. Si Nortec fusionó la electrónica con la música popular del norte mexicano, para conseguir un sonido único, que ya se convirtió en emblema musical no sólo de la frontera y de una generación entera. En Tijuana Sound Machine, Nortec da una vuelta más mediante la experimentación con nuevas tecnologías, la consolidación de un ritmo y la densidad emocional característica de Fussible y Bostich. Tijuana Sound Machine más que un nuevo album es una nueva urbe. Una ciudad hecha de puros sonidos.

Latino pop-rock is the best of many worlds
The music melds South and Central American traits with ongoing European trends.
By Reed Johnson and Deborah Bonello
Twenty years ago, punk-rock, ska and hip-hop were the main genres that shaped the sound of emerging Latin American bands. Today, electronica is filling that role. And, as was the case with punk and ska, the more risk-taking Latin bands are tweaking and customizing electronica to suit their cultural and aesthetic objectives, rather than merely imitating existing U.S. and European electronica outfits.
The results of those experiments can be heard in the work of groups such as Mexican Institute of Sound and Zizek Club, an Argentine collective that also will perform at Coachella, as well as through the ongoing efforts of more established ensembles such as Tijuana-based Nortec Collective.
Last year Nortec's brain trust, the artists known as Bostich and Fussible (Ramon Amezcua and Pepe Mogt), released what might be the group's most accomplished disc to date, "Nortec Collective Presents: Bostich + Fussible/Tijuana Sound Machine." While the record keeps faith with Nortec's trademark mix of computer-generated electronica and traditional Mexican norteño, it also incorporates more live musicians playing clarinet, accordion and the bajo sexto traditional 12-string guitar.
