As many of you know, I attended Sundance Film Festival this year. I only managed to see 6 films, but one I feel everyone should see is the documentary Hot Coffee – www.hotcoffeethemovie.com – it will be airing on HBO, and I believe the filmmaker is looking into theatrical also, so do yourself a favor and see it!
Since I always feel heartened seeing media make a difference I thought I’d share this great New York Times article about the American Documentary Showcase (which includes Body & Soul: Diana & Kathy) is having an impact overseas:
I will be speaking with Body & Soul: Diana & Kathy at MIT on using media to create change on March 10. Other guests with me may include the Arc of Boston, stay tuned and let me know if you’re in the area and would like to attend. (www.welcomechange.org)
I will be also be attending the Association of Asian Studies conference taking place in Hawaii March 31-April 2! The President, Jeannette Hereniko, and myself will be speaking in a few meetings about AsiaPacificFilms.com and hope to meet up with people! Please visit www.asiapacificfilms.com and let me know what types of curriculum you, or a faculty member you work with, might find beneficial.
I will also be going to the Popular Culture Association conference April 20-23, to be held in San Antonio, TX.
Thanks very much for your support of independent media. If there is a way I can assist you in finding, and/or programming, media content please share!
