ON LITERARY ADAPTATIONS IN WEBSERIES AND OR SO THE STORY GOES

Posted by WebVee on June 6, 2016 in Review

The internet is a place for fans, and for fans to share their fandoms with other fans. And as such, fan fiction and discussion have become as much a part of the fabric of entertainment on the internet as the content itself. This is a commentary and engagement supported medium, after all. There tends to

In the sea of webseries about twenty-somethings, roommates, and zombies, Zyara is a welcome respite. Not that there’s anything wrong with twenty-somethings, roommates, and zombies, but sometimes it’s nice just to relax and hear a personal story or two.  Zyara is an Arabic word meaning “visit”. Each episode of Zyara is a visit with a unique individual. Through Muriel Aboulrouss’s almost dream-like cinematography, Zyara transcends what we usually think of as documentary, and moves into the realm of art film. Among
