Rose McGowan Speaks at HT Leadership Summit 2017 in India


Rose McGowan is a writer, director, music artist, former actress, entrepreneur, founder of #ROSEARMY and feminist whistle-blowing activist. Rose has become a women's rights leader and symbol for equal rights, human decency and paving the way for sexual abuse victims to safely rise up in this tumultuous world we now live in.

Liberatum has recently made a cultural film on climate change featuring Mark Ruffalo, David Attenborough, and Cher. Liberatum is in the process of creating a major US-Mexican cultural diplomacy festival in Mexico City in collaboration with the President of Mexico to build a strong cultural bridge between Mexico and the US. It aims to connect some of the most acclaimed US cultural, fashion and business leaders with their Mexican counterparts through a compelling programme open to the public. A Mexican-US cultural Davos, if you like.

Pablo Ganguli from Calcutta founded Liberatum at the age of seventeen in Papua New Guinea in 2001 and since then he has conceptualized and directed significant multidisciplinary artistic endeavours all over the world from India to China and Turkey to Russia to inspire people through the power of the arts and raise consciousness on serious social issues and freedom of speech. Some of Liberatum's past collaborators have included Nicole Kidman, David Hockney, Dame Zaha Hadid, Frank Gehry, Francis Ford Coppola and Gore Vidal.

BRAVE, McGowan’s raw, honest, and poignant memoir/manifesto will be released on January 30th by HarperOne. A no-holds-barred, pull-no-punches account of the rise of a millennial icon, fearless activist, and unstoppable force for change who is determined to expose the truth about the entertainment industry, dismantle the concept of fame, shine a light on a multibillion-dollar business built on systemic misogyny, and empower people everywhere to wake up and be BRAVE.

Richard Armitage interview on SLEEPWALKER

SLEEPWALKER is the latest film from director Elliott Lester. Troubled by bouts of sleepwalking and disturbing nightmares, graduate student Sarah Foster goes to her university's sleep research center for help. When she wakes up after her first night of being monitored, the world she lives in seems to have changed in subtle, Twilight-Zone-esque ways. In fact, every time she goes to sleep now, she wakes up in a slightly different version of her world. With the help of sleep researcher Dr. Scott White, she tries to work her way back to the reality she started in. But when they finally succeed, it’s revealed that Sarah’s world is not what she thought at all.

Today my guest is one of the stars SLEEPWALKER, Richard Armitage. Tonight we talk about his work on that film as well as his work as Thorin Oakenshiled in The Hobbit Films, as John Proctor in The Crucible, and his upcoming films Ocens 8 and the Julie Delpy directed film My Zoe.

Internet Trolls and Critics in the Age of Rotten Tomatoes - A Look at the Critical Response to GOTTI

Hate, intolerance, and cruelty are the most valued currencies in the digital age. Online publications deal in the same eye-catching tabloid headlines that were once exclusive to rags like WEEKLY WORLD NEWS and the NATIONAL ENQUIRER. The monetization of clicks is ruining many forms of journalism and film criticism is just one of them. When organizations can see what headlines are generating revenue its only natural that sensationalism would start to rise. There is no consorted hivemind like conspiracy to destroy certain films but rather internet activity that has boosted a certain type of writer. From the outside, online film critics share quite a bit with their Twitter troll counterparts.

The critical response to John Travolta's passion project Gotti has been less than favorable, in fact, it has been downright abysmal. A project over ten years in the making, Travolta has poured his heart and soul into this venture. And many writers seem to take pleasure in the film's failure.

NO ALTERNATIVE review

Depression is often marked by sadness, despair, and hopelessness. The sense that things will not get better is something most of us pass through at different points in our lives. But depression is something more than that. It’s not just a temporary feeling, it’s a debilitating emotional state that you can’t simply pull yourself out of. The angry outbursts, irritability, and frustration that come along with depression can isolate individuals suffering from this condition and push them deeper into their own thoughts. Everyone needs to be heard and sometimes those who can’t express themselves in traditional forms find their voice in art.
Edvard Munch wrestled with agoraphobia and frequently had hallucinations, one of which inspired THE SCREAM, a painting so iconic that even the most casual art enthusiast is familiar with the piece.  Sylvia Plath took a more direct approach with THE BELL JAR and laid out the details of her depression with brutal honesty.
