A chance encounter between the shy Russell and the extrovert Glen unexpectedly grows into something beautiful. It’s followed by a weekend of drink, sex and discussions. Familiar and funny film about the battle with life and love. Winner of the SXSW Audience Award. When Russell wakes up after a wild night and finds himself beside Glen, the first thing Glen does is thrust a tape recorder under his nose. It’s for an art project, Glen explains, and will Russell please describe the events of the previous evening from his own perspective. This is the start of a weekend that is basically one long conversation between the two of them, because they are both surprised to note that the attraction between them extends longer than that one night. Andrew Haigh does not shy away from the eroticism of the relationship between the two men, and the way they handle it is a recurrent topic of conversation. But the dreamily filmed Weekend is primarily about questions that are familiar to everyone. Are you yourself when you meet a new lover? Or are you who you want to be? And how much of yourself do you reveal?

In a bid to review the International System of Units (SI), the International Bureau of Weights and Measures gathered at the 26th General Conference on Weights and Measures on November 16, 2018. Sixty member states have voted for changing four out of seven basic units of measurement. The kilogram is among the modified. Before describing the key points, let us have a closer look into the kilogram and its history.
