A beautiful short documentary on keroncong, a music unique to Indonesia with roots dating back from centuries ago in Portugal. Directed by Pinkan Veronique. Here’s a trailer. Complete information and full movie can be watched through the link.
This three-minute documentary video shows how the Japanese inaugurate a new sinkanshen: much like a celebrity. Just a sign on how they really love the product of their nation and how rail transport has become such an important part of their daily lives.
When I was in Copenhagen, I was so naive thinking that the Little Mermaid was there. So I scoured around and found nothing, except a giant mermaid statue that doesn’t look quite like what I am familiar with. I went ahead and asked a local there, apparently an old man:
“She went to China, for the World Expo.”
“Thank you, Sir, I could’ve known about that!”, I replied.
This soothing video documents the journey beautifully.
