It has won its 4th award since its release, winning the Special Mention Award at the international “On The Road Film Festival” in Rome.The jury, who praised the film as “capable to investigate the theme of “border” in an unconventional and very poetic way”, praised Tides for “Best protagonist: the river”: the voice of the River Foyle is Northern Irish actress and former drama student at Magee College – Emma Taylor. Derry based film director Alessandro Negrini, who attended the award ceremony said that he is “touched and so glad to see how this little story about a far away river can translate into other people lives, making them think about their lives, and yes, their dreams.”‘Tides’ , is a dreamlike and visionary portrait of the River Foyle in Northern Ireland, where the story is narrated from the point of view of the river: the river becomes the protagonist, telling us its autobiography.The film recently won the Special Mention Award for Best Film at Milan International Film Festival, Best Cinematography Award at Sole Luna Film Festival in Palermo and Best Film Soundtrack at Treviso Doc Festival, receiving so far four awards and six nominations since its release last June.Film about River Foyle gains international recognition was last modified: November 3rd, 2016 by Elaine McCalligShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:alessandro negriniDerryfilmtidesTides – A History of Lives and Dreams Lost and Found (Some Broken)last_img read more

Rebels win fourth consecutive NTL mixed open title

first_imgBy BEN HARRISMixed open:Sydney Rebels 5 def Brisbane City Cobras 4.Good people and a strong bond between those people were the reasons Sydney Rebels have won the last four mixed open titles at the X-Blades National Touch League.The Rebels defeated Brisbane City Cobras 5-4 in a heart-racing final at Coffs Harbour. It was a replay of last year’s decider in which the Rebels won 9-8.This year’s score wasn’t as big as 2013 but it was as exciting.Rebels’ co-captain Christian Frost said, despite the team’s average age of 32, they were still playing top quality touch football.“Good people, absolutely good people,” Frost said about the key to the Rebels’ success over the last four years.“They have self-respect, they work hard and they have a great attitude. Everybody just wants to be with each other, they love each other.”The Rebels scored first through Daniel Rushworth in the fifth minute and it wasn’t for another eight minutes before the Sydney scored their second thanks to Jeremy Locke.Locke’s touchdown opened up the floodgates as three more touchdowns were scored in the final few minutes of the first half with the Rebels leading 4-1 at the break.Both teams exchanged touchdowns before the Cobras scored twice more to be behind by one.For the last 10 minutes, it was a nail-biting affair as neither team gave an inch.Cobras’ wing Kate Barker had a chance to level the score but couldn’t grasp Ryan Jacks’ pass.The Rebels were able to hold on for the win, which gave them their 38th consecutive NTL win and their sixth mixed open title.“Brisbane lifted the tempo from last year, they are a great opponent,” Frost said.The players of the match were Gareth Young (Rebels) and Candice Ashley (Cobras). Touchdowns: Rebels 5 (Daniel Rushworth, Jeremy Locke, Emma Hamilton, Manu Wakely, Sophie Connelly); Cobras 4 (David Sen 2, Arepa Ohia, Kate Barker).Mixed open final timeline:5th minute Rebels 1-0 Cobras – Daniel Rushworth touchdown.13th minute Rebels 2-0 – Jeremy Locke touchdown.14th minute Rebels 2-1 – David Sen touchdown.15th minute Rebels 3-1 – Emma Hamilton touchdown.20th minute Rebels 4-1 – Manu Wakely touchdown.Half-time – Rebels 4-1.22nd minute Rebels 4-2 – David Sen touchdown. 26th minute Rebels 5-2 – Sophie Connelly touchdown.27th minute Rebels 5-3 – Arepa Ohia touchdown.30th minute Rebels 5-4 – Kate Barker touchdown.

first_imgMarcelino in stunning Batshuayi attack: Not to Valencia nor Primera standardsby Carlos Volcano10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveValencia coach Marcelino launched a furious attack on Michy Batshuayi after their Copa del Rey defeat to Sporting Gijon.Marcelino blasted the on-loan Chelsea striker in an amazing personal attack.”I think we have to bring players in for up front. It is clear that patience in some cases has already run out. In the first minute we could have put ourselves ahead. It’s the clearest chance I’ve seen in six months of competition and we did not even shoot at the goal, this is not like a player from the Primera nor Valencia,” the coach fumed in reference to Batshuayi, who was hauled off at halftime.He added that “I do not make the changes to point to anyone. I make the changes depending on the performance I see. Of the effort, of the intention, of what I see. I try to be fair and from there I modify.”Interestingly, on-loan Derby striker Nick Blackman featured for victors Sporting Gijon.

Dzagoev Croatia are upset they have to play Russia

first_imgRussia midfielder Alan Dzagoev believes that their quarter-final opponents Croatia will be rueing their luck in having to face them on SaturdayThe tournament hosts have performed above expectations this summer and last weekend’s victory over Spain proved that they could be in with a real chance of reaching the final.Standing in there way is Croatia, who have also exceeded prior expectations and are widely being viewed as the favourites to reach the semi-finals on Saturday with midfield star duo Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitic in the team.But Dzyuba, who scored a first-half penalty against Spain last Sunday, thinks that it is Croatia who are worried.“Everything depends on the opponent,” said the 28-year-old, according to SportsMax.ScotlandScotland needs a hero: Billy Dodds Manuel R. Medina – September 10, 2019 According to former striker, Billy Dodds his country needs a hero to inspire future generations as the team’s hope to qualify to the EURO 2020 is small.“Spain can take control over any team, so we could not play in any other way.”He added: “Closer to the match against Croatia, Cherchesov will tell us how to play. I hope we’ll prove that we can play football in the upcoming match.“I think Croatia are upset that they will play against us because we are the host nation.“The whole of Russia will be supporting us. I hope we don’t disappoint our fans.”Russia and Croatia will meet at the Fisht Olympic Stadium on Saturday at 20:00 (GMT +2).last_img read more

Nissans zeroemissions ice cream truck gets rid of the ICE

Nissan According to Nissan, there are some monsters out there who have a problem with ice cream trucks — not the idea of an ice cream truck or the thought of children sprinting out into the street, but the overall ecological footprint of such an endeavor. Thankfully, Nissan engineered a way around that, and it’s green from “sky to scoop,” as the automaker puts it.Nissan on Thursday unveiled its vision for a zero-emissions ice cream truck. And it’s not just the truck that is better for the environment — it’s the entire process in and around the idea of serving ice cream from a vehicle.The vehicle itself is a modified version of Nissan’s e-NV200 small van, which replaces the internal combustion engine (ICE) with a battery-electric powertrain. According to the automaker, some ice cream trucks get a bad rap because they have diesel engines that must remaining running to power the refrigeration system, which can lead to a whole bunch of gnarly emissions.But the e-NV200 doesn’t actually use the EV battery for keeping that ice cream cold. Instead, it uses Nissan’s Energy Roam system, which uses recycled Nissan EV batteries as a portable power pack that can deliver energy where it’s needed. Hell, even the ice cream itself is zero-emissions (minus, you know, the cow flatulence), because the creamery that makes the product — Mackie’s of Scotland — powers its farm with wind and solar energy.Even the experience of serving the ice cream is delightfully different. There’s no room to hang out in the back of the van, so the driver stands outside and serves ice cream directly to customers in a more personal manner. There’s a contactless payment terminal right on the side of the van. Instead of rolling around playing tunes, the van generates a What3Words code for its location, narrowing down its parking spot to a 3-meter-by-3-meter square. That way, kids don’t hear the music and immediately start shaking parents down for spare change, and there’s no worry about missing it.It’s just a concept, of course, so don’t expect this ice cream truck to show up in your neighborhood this summer. But nevertheless, it’s yet another unique approach to figuring out how zero-emissions tech can green up the auto industry beyond regular ol’ passenger cars. Green tech Nissanlast_img read more
