Life, Above All got 10-minute standing ovation at Cannes! (why didn't I read about this at the time?) It is now SA's official contribution to the Oscars.
That's the movie based on Canadian Allan Stratton's book, Chanda's Secrets, and I blogged a bit about it here, and about hearing Stratton at CLA 2009 here.
Now, if you'll excuse me, it's my day off. I will now return to my regularly-scheduled programming, i.e. reading books and drinking coffee while in my pajamas, punctuated by breaks to add to my Memory Lane album of photos on Facebook. Some treasures here, here and here.
