In February you could not miss one event in Berlin: the Berlinale.
This year I was particularly impressed by the movie “Profile”, which actually won the Audience Award for Best Feature Film. The thriller by director Timur Bekmambetov shows the experiences of an English journalist trying in form of a self-attempt to contact online IS militants in Syria. The special thing about the film is that the viewer sees the whole movie only through the main character’s laptop screen, what brings the viewer very close to her actions (Skype conversations, face time, website calls, emails, etc.).

A photo that appeared several times this month on my feed that I do not want to withhold from you was a picture of a model with a dragon in her arms. Gucci designer Alessandro Michele exceeded again all expectations and sent his models not only with interesting outfits on the catwalk but in collaboration with Makinarium also with fake heads, a small dragon and other creatures.
Who wants to have a little dragon as a pet now?

That Instagram also can carry and redistribute important political discussions again and again shows the case of Emma Gonzales. The student who survived the Florida high school massacre delivered an emotional speech, which was among others broadcasted by CNN. Trump should be ashamed! Afterwards the picture of Emma was reposted several times by people with a high number of followers like the model Cara Delevingne.

Probably the most exciting new release takes place outside of Instagram. The app Vero should be the new Instagram. No algorithm, no ads, everything more focused on the user. Everything sounds great, but there must be some catch, right? What do you think of the new app? Is it a real alternative to Instagram or just a new hype that disappears after a few months?
