Back From The Film Festival

Now the film festival is over and the various panics have been and gone I can get back into my stride.

Another update

Not surprisingly I haven't seen too many films this time around. My father came back from hospital and then we had to hussle him back in again. At the moment he might be getting an operation (but that's still under discussion). Meantime I managed to dislocate my little finger. The swellings gone... Sign in to see full entry.

Good news (& I feel I might be just a little bit responsible). As I write this a plane is landing in the United States. On board are 75 silent films that are being sent back home by the New Zealand Film Archive. Like all countries involved in the early history of film New Zealand has been involved...

Another week

Actually it's been two weeks since I last signed in. Too many people having milestone birthdays within the same time period. I risk some repetition here but my movie viewing over the last two weeks went something like this:- 1905 The Whole Dam Family & The Dam Dog Indochina - Children Gathering Rice...

Update
