Published by Intellect Books
Published from January 2009 as a bi-monthly, full colour magazine, The Big Picture celebrates all that is special about film. Using minimal text, the magazine pushes imagery to the fore to create a visual narrative in which to revisit and rediscover film. The new magazine goes beyond the borders of the screen, revealing cinema's unique power to entertain, inspire and connect to each and every one of us. It features both film specific and film related content such as where and how we watch films, artists and photographers inspired by the medium and the ways that film spills over into our everyday lives.

Following 9/11
, Kathy Krigerdecided to do something todemonstrate what she believedto be true American values.She left her job in the USEmbassy in Morocco to pursueher love of the 1942 classic film
Casablanca
, and set aboutcreating the real Rick’s café(the legendary location whereHumphrey Bogart and IngridBergman played out the loveaffair between Rick and Ilsa).Kriger attracted investmentfrom all over the worldthrough flyers which asked:“Of all the gin joints, in all thetowns, in all the world, I’d likeyou to buy into mine”.The response couldn’t havebeen better and, in March2004, Rick’s Café opened onthe edge of the Old Medina inCasablanca. Not surprisinglyit holds more than a passingresemblance to its cinematiccounterpart, with Moroccanarches, ornate brass chande-liers and indoor palms creatingthe elegance of a wartime ex-patriate saloon. And of coursethere is the resident pianist,Issam, who receives morethan a few requests to “Play itagain, Issam”.
