At last year's SILVERDOCS, I saw a real beauty of a film called Let's Be Together. This small family story out of Denmark and Brazil, directed by the über-talented, Nanna Frank Møller, really impressed me with its sensitivity and grace. You can read my impressions about it here. (BTW, submissions are now open for this year's SILVERDOCS fest--see website for details.)
I will be bringing this film, and a lovely short film from Finland / Russia called Between Dreams directed by award-winning filmmaker, Iris Olsson, with gorgeous cinematography by Natasha Pavlovskaya ( a nominee for best short for the European Film Awards 2009) to the Brooklyn Independent Cinema Series this Monday, the 1st. The screening starts at 7:00 p.m. and is free--but get there early since it's a very intimate space at the back of the Barbès bar in Park Slope (376 9th Street at 6th Avenue).
I am writing from the presidential suite at the Regency Hotel in downtown Columbia, MO where I'm attending the 7th True/False Fest, feeling damned lucky to have been on one of the last flights out of blizzardy New York City yesterday morning--whew! It's lovely here, no snow and plenty of sunshine and lots and lots of fabulous nonfiction fare on offer. After marching in the March March this afternoon with the Mucca-Pazza band, I will be totally and utterly reverting to the five-year-old inside me.
Hope to see you in the BK Monday evening.
