Keeping the @lafoodbowl party going 🎉 On Monday 5/21, @thewiltern is screening acclaimed food documentary @cityofgolddoc, followed by a Q&A with Pulitzer Prize winning food critic @the_thejgold and the film’s director @laura.gabbert. Food by one of my favorites @mariscosjalisco 🌮 Tix are available at www.wiltern.com. Have heard amazing things about this film for a while... I can’t wait! See you there! 👋🏻
Thanks to director Bing Liu for joining us at last night's screening of his impressive and moving first feature film MINDING THE GAP – part of our #throughthelens with @kuer901 and @radiowest_kuer. 📸: @carlynlsn
I know I didn't include it with the piece over on NewJerseyStage.com, but here's an "extra" for those who checked out my review. ✨ During the Q&A for @darkmoneyfilm at the Montclair Film Festival, someone asked how they could stay aware of where all the donations are coming from in politics. Kimberly Reed's reply included sharing the most reliable watchdog websites tuned into the campaign finance reform issue. Take a look.
Just so you don't think I was doing all that running around this past week for nothing, here's a link to my review of Kimberly Reed's documentary "Dark Money," from the 2018 Montclair Film Festival lineup. (@darkmoneyfilm) In the piece, I not only talk about the film itself, but also about the Q&A conversation that followed and how it relates to the political and media scene here in New Jersey. ✨ Don't worry. It doesn't get heavy, but it does get serious. 😉 ✨ So take a gander if you have a moment. And if you've seen the film, let me know what you thought. Shocking? Distressing? Oddly ironic? ✨ Here's the link: https://www.newjerseystage.com/articles/getarticle.php?titlelink=kimberly-reeds-dark-money-is-a-history-lesson-signal-flair-and-call-to-arms-all-rolled-into-one
If you're in the Montclair area and can get tickets to the 7pm showing of @crimeandpunishmentdoc, I highly recommend it. It's easily one of the most salient films of 2018. #mff18#keepconnecting#montclairfilmfestival Repost: H/T @montclairfilm
And we're off! Can I make it to all 9 screenings I have tickets for? We'll soon find out. 🤗 I'm up to the challenge. #montclairfilmfestival#mff18#mff2018 The first film on my list: Crime+Punishment. 🎥⚖️
