Two Screenings, One Night

Flickering Blue has been chosen to screen at the Muskegon Film Festival on Saturday, February 5th. So, if anyone finds themselves in western Michigan this weekend, with nothing better to do...

Meanwhile, just north of the border on the same night, On a Sunday has its premiere in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

What a night!

An Invitation

This is a less-than-formal invitation to all of my friends, family and scattered acquaintances to attend the premiere of On a Sunday, a beautiful little film (only sixteen minutes long) if I do say so myself, about a boy and his dad and the man who comes between them. On a Sunday was directed by Bevan Klassen and produced by Frank Zappia and 40 Below Films. Cinematographer Steve Morrison lends his exceptional talent to the project, and the locations in Sanford and the Whiteshell never looked so good.

The screening will take place on February 5th, 7:30 pm, at The Heritage Gallery on the south campus of Canadian Mennonite University, 600 Shaftesbury Blvd. in Winnipeg. Admission is two bucks at the door; the popcorn is free. I'd love to see a whole bunch of you out there.

The Writer's Wife

My lovely and gracious wife, Esther, has written about the travails of living with a writer on her clever blog, Culture Shock, which explores the meaning and purpose of culture. She ends her commentary with a quote that I gave her some time ago:

"What no wife of a writer can understand is that a writer is working when he's staring out the window." - Burton Rascoe.

No wife but mine, apparently.
