Back to Reality

Today is the last day of the festival, which means tomorrow is "rest day" and Monday is back to reality.   For some of us, the last ten days have included no sleep, a lot of coffee but lots of great films.

Having had the chance to write for this blog, I was able to see some amazing documentaries.  Some of the films I saw were already on my list of "must see;" for instance, Encounters at the End of the World, Trumbo, Captain Mike Across America, Glass: A portrait of Philip in twelve parts just to start.  All documentaries I wrote about, provided me with new perspectives; sometimes it was about an inidividual I did not know much about; other times, it was about an issue that affects the world and needs to be discussed. 

Thom Powers, I believe, chose some really outstanding films for the Reel to Reel program.  I am glad I had a chance to work with him; I am also glad that the films I was assigned to write about were all memorable.  I hope some of you share your experience with us.  I am already looking forward to next year's festival.  In the meantime, back to the grind and to enjoy other films I may have missed.  Thanks for this cool and amazing opportunity!
