We went to see 7 films in three days. FUN!
This was one of our favorites - Once in a Blue Moon although here it was called A Ghost of a Chance. It is a story of how a lawyer defends her client when the only witness to his innocence is a samurai ghost who had been sitting on him the night the murder was committed. Many side and sub-plots - both funny and very human. A nice evening.
We also really like The Sheep of Gaza, a story of a poor fisherman in Gaza who pulls in a pig which is, of course, a forbidden animal in his religion. Again, both funny and very human at its core. It won the Audience Appreciation Award for the festival.
We also saw the premiere of a very cute animated film called Hal's Flute.
And then on the heavy side we saw The Mill and The Cross - an art movie about the making and meaning of a 16th century painting.
Just a tiny fraction of what was being shown. It was a good week.
