I would like to license high quality(HD if available) B roll of the rich and famous. Specifically, I am looking for huge yachts, mansions, shots of corporate jets, etc. If you do have any such footage or know where I can obtain such, I would be delighted to hear from you at your earliest.

I'm posting this for a good friend, Jackie, whose daughter is moving to London:

Two recent university grads from the States are looking for a flat in London. Both have jobs at starting salaries, (one at a law firm in Hammersmith and the other at Reuters in Canary Wharf) and are looking for a (furnished) flat on a convenient tube line for both. Would appreciate any leads and/or a suggestion of a real-estate agent who could be helpful. Arriving in London July 18th and can begin looking at flats then. Thanks!

Please email: Jackieleop(at)aol(dot)com.

DocuClub in July!

Our July DocuClub will take place on Wednesday, July 27, 7 p.m., at DCTV, located at 87 Lafayette (at Walker).

This month, we will screen a rough cut of Quel Souvenir by Danya Abt. In 2003, construction was completed on a pipeline that stretches a thousand kilometers from the oil fields of Chad to the beaches of Cameroon. Funded by oil giants Exxon, Chevron and Petronas, and politically insured by the World Bank, the Chad-Cameroon Oil Pipeline was a beacon of hope to the Chadian and Cameroonian people. It promised to spread prosperity and opportunity through some of the poorest communities in the world. *Quel Souvenir* follows the path of the Chad-Cameroon pipeline to witness its lasting effects, featuring the compelling individuals who live along its path. From the fishing ports of Kribi to oil installations of Doba, the stunning diversity of the landscape through which the pipeline passes reflects the many different Africans who live with it daily. Despite their differences, the communities along the pipeline speak with one voice to ask “If the land is so rich, why are we so poor?” As the world looks increasingly to Sub-Saharan African to satisfy its thirst for oil, this timely film asks what is the human cost of this extraction, and how oil effects the struggle for survival, the fight for democracy and the dream of peace. To see a trailer, please go to:

Director/Producer Danya Abt’s desire to use film to create a more just and peaceful world has driven her from her native Detroit to the bayous of Louisiana and as far as the deserts of Central Africa. Her films have been featured at the MoMa in New York, the Detroit Institute of the Arts and a variety of community gathering places to generate dialogue and inspire social change. Most recently, Abt served as Senior Video Producer for GRITtv with Laura Flanders. Her work will be included as part of PBS syndication in the fall.

Our moderator will be Chi-hui Yang, a film programmer, lecturer and writer based in New York. As a guest curator, Yang has presented film and video series at film festivals and events internationally, including the 2011 MOMA Documentary Fortnight, 2008 Robert Flaherty Film Seminar (“The Age of Migration”), Seattle International Film Festival, Washington D.C. International Film Festival and Barcelona Asian Film Festival. From 2000-2010, he was the Director and Programmer of the San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival, the largest showcase of its kind in the U.S. Yang is also the programmer of “Cinema Asian America,” a new On-Demand service offered by Comcast and currently a Visiting Scholar at NYU’s Center for Media, Culture and History.
