I wanted to share with you the exciting news that CARLOS BARON, POETA PAN, the documentary I produced for the arts show SPARK, will be having a rerun this week.

Multicultural theatre evangelist Carlos Baron, takes us on fascinating road trip to Chile to explore love and exile through the poetry of Pablo Neruda following the death of Pinochet. Shadow theatre, music and dance, run a powerful link between Baron's life and the Nobel poet that inspires his work.

Hartmut Bitomsky's new film, DUST opening tomorrow at Film Forum!

IT DOESN’T GET MORE BASIC THAN DUST. And it is only a filmmaker of Harmut Bitomsky’s stature who could successfully tackle a subject so seemingly uncinematic — by bringing to it a rigorous intelligence and a masterful visual imagination. DUST scours industrial sites and office building interiors, paint factories, and demolition sites. It deals with dust-repellent products, the medicinal cost of dust, the history of the Dust Bowl and the aftereffects of the dust created on 9/11. The definitive film on an elusive phenomenon that is both everywhere and nowhere.

Wednesday, December 3 – Tuesday, December 9 • One Week
Showtimes: 1:15, 3:30, 6:00, 8:00, 10:00

For tickets: http://www.filmforum.org/films/dust.html

Hello everyone,

I wanted to put in a good word for a grant writer I've had the pleasure of working with over the past 2 years, Joanna Rabiger. I actually found her from a posting here on d-word.

She's incredibly talented, experienced, great with deadlines, and most importantly – this year her writing helped us get funding from the Jerome Foundation, Sundance Institute, Gucci/Tribeca, BBC Storyville, and most recently – ITVS.

I know we wouldn't have gotten this far without her so I wanted to spread the word. Oh, and her rate is very affordable.

Joanna's email is jorabiger@fastmail.fm
