Rhinos, Rickshaws, and Revolutions: My Search for Truth

Since beginning her career covering such stories as the conflict in Kosovo and the disputed Pakistan-India border, photojournalist Ami Vitale has let one principle guide her work: to live the story. That means she’s gone to tremendous lengths to capture the power of the human spirit even in the face of adversity — living in mud huts, contracting malaria, and braving civil war in Guinea-Bissau. But soon, another philosophy began to overtake her work: “you can’t talk about humanity without talking about nature.” Thus, she chronicles her journey from documenting warzones to helping to reintroduce rhinos to the wild, and donning a panda costume to remain anonymous among the giant mammals.

I met Eugenie Bondurant 12 years ago at an art event in Tampa shortly after she married her husband Paul Wilborn. Paul at that time was the City of Tampa’s Culture Affairs Director; I was writing my “Scenes” column for Weekly Planet, and Eugenie was a marvelous addition to the Tampa Bay social scene.We both loved fashion and great art- so we sort of hit it off. Friends ever since, seeing each other often over the years especially since Paul and Eugenie moved to St. Petersburg when Paul became executive director at the Palladium Theater. Bondurant was a well-known on-camera and Meisner acting coach at the prestigious Patel Conservatory in Tampa. But it’s not every day one of your friends ends up in one of Hollywood’s greatest film series franchises. So I recently chatted with Eugenie, whose extraordinary journey has taken her from the runways of the Big Apple and Paris to a featured role as “Tigris” in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2.

When The Hunger Games’ director Francis Lawrence went looking for that special actor to bring“Tigris”, the vital role that is both feminine and feline in the fourth and final installment of The Hunger Games film saga The Hunger Games: Mockingjay: Part 2. Based on Suzanne Collins’ wildly popular books. Bondurant’s agent sent a video audition to the Mockingjay’s casting agent, who invited the actor to a callback interview with the director. Weeks later, she got the part. Her first movie since playing Cherry in 2008’s Patsy and her biggest, exceeding her billing as “Weeping Woman” in 1999 Fight Club with Ed Norton.

Screened Out – Marguerite

Marguerite opens at Winter Park’s Regal Cinema on Apr. 1.

For this plot to be enjoyable it needs to be brisk and intimate; Marguerite is sprawling and messy, like it’s protagonist’s voice.

The comic drama Marguerite is a fascinating film – a French fiction based on a famous, filthy-rich American who thought she could sing like an angel. Like its protagonist, Marguerite adds too many glissandos and flourishes, and it goes off melody. A good indication is that it clocks in at over 2 hours; this should have been at least 25 minutes shorter, and with fewer characters. If they’re all fictional anyway…

After a solid decade at Watermark, it’s time to say goodbye.

On one hand, it feels like I’ve been a representative of this newsmagazine my entire life. On the other, it seems like only a few months ago that I was a freelancer, frantically searching for the “LGBT angle” and the sources required of my assignments.
