Back after three weeks in Nanjing. A Fantastic screening! Deep gratitude to Librairie Avant-Garde and H.Rong for putting this event together. Great audience and some very thoughtful questions that went on deep into the night. A thrilling experience in such a beautiful place. I will post more photos later, but this was very, very special. Here is the link to the Librairie Avant-Garde page and description of the event, just scroll down. Text is in Chinese.
BTW-The poster is fantastic.
A really beautiful time last night premiering Scenes from 10 Walks. Great conversation and questions afterwards as well. Scenes is over 46 minutes long, so I was a bit apprehensive about how the audience would respond, but it was very, very positive. I think the ambience of the church added an extra dimension to the overall audiovisual experience. The super 8 films looked great too! Thanks again the Hyattsille Independent Film series for a memorable evening. More soon
