New Beginnings…….

  14 months ago I took a road trip to South Dakota. I wanted to see Wounded Knee for myself. But it wasn’t Wounded Knee that transformed me. It was a visit to the Crazy Horse monument. A 600 foot statue that is a 80 year work in progress. The motto of the monument is …

Home again, Home again….

I am back in the pacific northwest. Thinking about all that transpired from Vienna, and then Cannes and then a real topper in Croatia. Like three trips in one, with each one having fantastic memories, it is hard to put into simple words what a trip like that meant. I will say this, that it …

My time with Oja

I’m on the train for Milano, finally have internet so I will add another post. It was a magical and surreal 4 days with Oja Kodar. It was a great pleasure and tremendous honor to get to know her on a one on one basis. I feel I have entered into a special chamber in …

Orsons house…..

I’m writing this half drunk on champagne on my iPhone cause there is no Wi-Fi here. So I don’t know how this is going to work. But it’s a lot to process. So I get to Oja’s house and we hang out and talk for a bit. Then she starts bringing out the boxes. Huge …

You say Good bye, and I say hello….

Avoir Cannes, you have been very fun. As I board a train bound for Croatia and a once in a lifetime visit to Oja Kodar,  My heart is full. I am full of Thank you’s. This journey has truly been so full of grace and kindness and gestures of goodwill. Isn’t that what the world …

Film, Fuga and Fireworks….

Pitching, Lawyers, 3 Faces, 5 and a skin….

My Cannes saga continues with meetings and trials and failures of a 1st time participant in the Marche de film. It is an adventure everyday with highs and lows and dreams trying to be realized. Yesterday on my walk to the festival, I was reliving a conversation that didn’t go my way and thought to …

Cues, protests, ice cream and Godard….

Cannes can be a little like Disneyland. Long lines and everyone dressing up like its the prom. Big boats, helicopters, limos, security and a whole lot of attitude…..But there is so much there beyond the surface if you step back and see it. Yesterday was one of those days to step back and look. Appreciate …

Alice Guy Blache’…..

Sometimes history is distorted. I know this from performing Rosebud. People know this and that and pieces that aren’t the whole. The truth is lost. Never to be known. It is amazing that in the span of less then a generation, the truth is ostracized because of greed, power and all the human traits that …
