What a marathon of a week-end it’s been! There are so many things going on in town, Sourdough Rendezvous and the Available Light Film Festival being just two of them.
Friday was a holiday here in the Yukon…Heritage Day. Joe and I started the day with Ce qu’il faut pour vivre (Necessities of Life). It was good but we both thought it needed to be edited down. Then it was off to our favourite sushi spot for lunch. We had hoped Jamie would join us but he was helping a friend move. On Friday night, we watched Patti Smith Dream of Life. This to me was a real disappointment…too self-indulgent.
Saturday: after teaching piano it was off to see Mothers & Daughters. Lucca, you would have enjoyed this one…I think parts of it at least were filmed on and around the Drive.
Today: After a Rendezvous breakfast and a visit to Gramma Sophie’s, I went to Slepe Lasky (Blind Loves). It was a sweet film, made in Slovakia, that looks at the everyday lives of several blind people. We’re going to have an early dinner so I can see the final two movies of the festival: Deepa Mehta’s Heaven on Earth (same person who directed Fire, Earth, and Water) and The English Surgeon.
