This weekend is the Northwest Film Festival! I hope to have an entry in there next time around, but for now I will be happy to watch other local filmmakers’ offerings. As usual, I’m particularly excited about the shorts.. there are three rounds of them, each shown twice. I plan on hitting up “Great Speeches from a Dying World” with a buddy who invited me. The description goes:
“On a personal expedition, Linas Phillips (WALKING TO WERNER) befriends 12 homeless people in Seattle struggling with their unfortunate circumstances. Through the artifice of their reciting great speeches from historyâ€”from Shakespeare to JFKâ€”we glimpse the nobility in their lives and a new context for the words and ideas themselves.”
Reviews to follow.
