Wednesday 25th September 2019. Ad Astra review with Andreas & photo exhibition by Vincent Rosenblatt.

September 25, 2019

Happy birthday Andreas! What a great way to celebrate here on TBS. the movie under the spotlight today is “Ad Astra” staring Brad Pitt. “A very personal film inside a remarkable space epic. The film creates a mood from the very beginning, and it keeps you more enganged with the character arc than the beautiful world it created. With Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and Ad Astra, we’re firmly in the year of Brad Pitt. Take advantage and don’t miss this film on an IMAX screen.”

A fascinating interview with my guest in the last hour today,  photographer Vincent Roseblatt whose exhibition will be shown at the Centro Cultural Internacional the inauguration of which will be tomorrow 26th September at 7pm. And from the French embassy Quentin Blanchet.

Vincent moved to Rio de Janeiro and in 2002 set up a photography workshop called Olhares do Morro on the hills of Santa Marta favela, providing a place where local youth could find their own expression and study photography. Some have grown into extremely talented and successful photographers.
The international press has regularly singled out their portfolios due to their immediacy and authenticity.
