Have you watched Tales by Light on Netflix yet?
The cinematography is actually what’s most compelling for me. The photos, when they show some, are of course awesome. Their stories are interesting too, but yeah, the filming is stunning. For season 2 they should have someone filming the filmmakers… Tales by Light: Inception
I finally finished this last night. I have to admit, the last episode made me a bit uncomfortable, with the photog capturing the different cultures in PNG and Ethiopia. I know he was given permission in, and in some cases invited to shoot different aspects, and everyone seemed very willing to take part, and I get his desire to want to document the cultures if in fact they are disappearing…but parts of it felt like he was just using them as props for his vision, rather than just capturing them as they are. He wasn’t just an observer, but directing them. I mean, if the only reason was to document them, isn’t having them pose inauthentic and preserving the culture in a disingenuous way?
Carlo – I fully agree. I didn’t want to bum out the thread but I had several episodes I felt a bit miffed by. Didn’t sit right. The show has excellent cinematography but a few of the photogs and stories they chosed rubbed me the wrong way.
