  • Julian Lennon recreates Imagine shoot
    By: Sep 03, 2013

    Julian Lennon has recreated his father John's iconic image in the promo for classic track Imagine by posing for photographs at a white grand piano.

  • Tears of the Sun Review

    Tears of the Sun has some good moments, including the intense ambulatory trek out of Nigeria. But the blind patriotism we are spoon-fed towards the end makes this film a little hard to swallow.

Based on actual events that occurred in Algeria. Ten years after the 1962 liberation of Algeria, many "pied-noir" (French colonials born in Algeria) stayed on in the country they saw as home. One of the most prominent was Senac, a distinguished poet and radio broadcaster with a large following. The fact that he was gay and stood for a liberal approach to the arts made him a marked man among sections of the homophobic police force that essentially ran the country.
